Blu Ginger, McMahons Point.

March 7, 2014

Following a  slow start to the new year the executive members of the team find themselves at Blu Ginger at McMahons Point. A pleasant summer’s evening so it’s another stroll across the bridge to Milsons Point and down trendy Blues Point Road.

Ambience
For some reason we arrived considerably early for our booking  but welcomed nonetheless and chose a table in the cool interior  rather than an  alfresco setting out front. A small venue but a clean and contemporary decor – no faux Taj-mahal feel about this place. We are the first to arrive but being a Friday evening the place soon gets buzzing with after work diners, locals and families. It’s a small venue – so gets a bit intimate and a lot loud.

Service
Friendly, attentive in a restrained discreet manor. Food served efficiently and promptly.

Food
The menu has a North Indian bent and for entrée we shared a Tandoori Platter and a Blu Ginger Platter, both excellent with the Lamb Cutlets and  Fish banana leaf the stand outs. For mains we chose the Desi Chicken (not as spicy as could have been), Goat Curry, Aloo Matar Paneer and Dahl Tadka. The vegetarian dishes were both good with the Dahl voted the best we can remember having. Things went a bit downhill with desert with the most garish fake green Pistachio Ice Cream ever seen.
