** Wild Ginger - Downtown

The food at Wild Ginger spans the Pacific Rim from China to Indonesia. We pride ourselves on offering traditional dishes from these distinctive regions and insist on house-made ingredients. Chefs make spicy chili sambals, fresh coconut milk, delicate egg noodles, and our pungent oyster sauce all from scratch. To achieve the sublime flavors of the East, there is no substitute for the time-honored customs of these rich and ancient cultures.

It's a really nice room with a friendly greeting at the door. We requested a specific table and it was granted with no hassle. Server was good, but as we read before we got there, food delivery is slow and inconsistent - one of our diners got the food a good 10 minutes before the other. But the food is well above-average, creatively done with good flavors. But the other unique attribute is the street scene. The entire dining room is windows onto the street, and it's a ongoing show of homeless people, mental health issues with confrontations, drug deals, etc. We aren't from Seattle and were somewhat taken aback by how it's evolved over the years, and it's really a shame. The neighborhood felt safe, but the street scene was definitely oft-putting. Would we go back? Yes, but it helps to know what to expect inside the restaurant (very positive) and outside.

We were seated for 25 minutes before our server came to our table. She didn't apologize for the wait or anything. It wasn't even that busy. It was a Thursday night. Then the wine we ordered came after we were finished with our meal. The food was really good but my goodness it was the worst service I have had in a very long time.

Read several reviews and decided this was the must eat at Thai place. We ordered the tuna, and it was quality tuna, no issues there, but the flavor and texture of the dish just wasn't good. We never leave tuna uneaten and we didn't want to finish it. The phad thai was also underwhelming. The portion size was big enough ti share. Sadly, we won't return and left with over $100 bill for only a few items. Only reason we didn't give a 1 star is the service was great and friendly.

Location is what takes it down a notch. We had a table with a street view. You get to see all the challenges Seattle is struggling with just outside your window. If we had a table in the main dining room, it would have been a different experience.

Paired with a delicious and light Pinot White from Italy. It was the best meal we have had in years. The lettuce cups and satay were the favorites for our table. The waitress was awesome and staggered our food so we could enjoy each entre and lengthen our dining experience. Frequent check in’s from the wait staff made sure we had everything we needed. Definitely will return.

Our wait staff was attentive, helpful and friendly. The food tasted wonderful. Our party of 4 always requests food substitutions and spice omissions. The staff was helpful with this and the kitchen accommodated us where they could, informing us where they couldn't. All told a very positive experience.

Server wasn’t very well informed, forgot things, didn’t check back to refresh drinks The food was also bad, disappointing. Asian Chicken salad had only microscopic and few pieces of chicken, Mongolian noodle dish was greasy. Manager was slightly argumentative. We would not recommend this restaurant and either they had a real bad night or it is way over rated

We had an early reservation so that we could get to a 7 PM performance at Benaroya. It was not crowded when we first arrived. The food was wonderful. We had potstickers, ankor wat chicken And a small order of duck. each dish was very well prepared. There was also a good selection of wines including by the glass and offerings by the half bottle. The service was also really good. Sitting by the window on the south side of the restaurant provided a few of the lively and diverse Street scenes. I seldom great restaurants this high, but the wild Ginger is definitely back on it's game!

Our main course came first, the satay second and the beans third. We are glad it reopened and I suspect these little glitches will work themselves out.

They forgot to bring a course, didn't apologize at first and didn't think it was big deal. Pretty disappointing. The restaurant locale has also gone downhill significantly, pretty sad to see.

The dining room where we were seated was on the corner of 3rd and Union, with large plate glass windows overlooking drug and gang activity. While we were there there was a fist fight against the glass, where one of the parties involved brandished a foot long knife spear and it appeared as though they were going to use it. We didn't feel comfortable walking past the corner to get to the entrance, and certainly not something we felt comfortable witnessing while eating. Unfortunately we won't be back until they change locations.

That made service quite attentive and the interchange we had with the waiter was a highlight of the visit. Beyond that, the ambiance is rather bleak -- not the fault of the restaurant, but of the street scene outside, which is a close companion when they seat you near the windows. As to the food, it is still fresh and good with well blended tastes. But things can be uneven: the Siam lettuce cups were unusually tasty and excellent. The squash curry, though, was somewhat undercooked and undersauced, without a lot to the curry.
