We ordered Bento Boxes from Blue Ginger Cafe the day we rented Jeep's to tour the island. They were ready when we arrived and met our appetite needs later that day.

Hate rating a place like this. Compared to other yummy hole-in-the-wall- places, the food here is great! Compared to other small mom and pop shops, this place is great.... but this place can be so much more! It's good local food--- Ono! But get efficient and replenish your pastries!

We had dinner and lunch at Blue Ginger. The mixed plate for dinner was so good. My wife and cousin had the mahi stir fry and really enjoyed it. The next day we all got cheese burgers. Nothing special except the beef is probably the best I've ever tasted in a hamburger. Very friendly staff.

We were visiting Lanai City for the day, and the guide had recommended Blue Ginger. Excellent baked goods, and between the four of us we enjoyed a Denver Omelette, Egg Salad San, and two Shrimp Stir-fry. Service was prompt and cordial, and it was very reasonable.
