    Great little restaurant

    This is a wonderful little restaurant tucked away in South College Street and just around the corner from the Festival Theatre. We had the pre-theatre menu and the food was wonderful and the service was excellent.

    Freshly cooked delicious food

    We were pleasantly surprised by the choice on the pre-theatre menu. We had the veg and chicken pakora. Both delicious. Then shared the mushroom sag and lamb dish. Both freshly cooked and tasty served with fluffy rice and perfect nan. The lamb especially was melt in the mouth. I heartily recommend and will be back.

Indian and Nepalese in Old Town

Ginger Restaurant is a Indian and Nepalese restaurant which is slightly tucked away on South College Street. Compact and simply decorated with a striking mural over the bar, it is a cosy spot for a pre-theatre dinner, romantic night out or big celebration with friends and family.

Authentic spices and herbs

With a kitchen team that has seen action in some very upmarket hotels in Dubai and India, Ginger Restaurant is keen to use authentic Nepalese and Indian spices and herbs in their dishes. Many of the options – such as the chicken pakora, lamb madras and the range of tandoori dishes – will be familiar to fans of Indian food.

Some of the Nepalese dishes might seem more exotic. For example, the bheda kho khutta features a leg of lamb cooked with traditional Nepalese herbs while the mo mo are Nepalese steamed dumplings. Vegetarians have plenty of choices at Ginger Restaurant and the seafood section offers a dish of pangasius fish in a coconut milk sauce alongside a selection of prawn and king prawn dishes.
