    Came for the Easter buffet. I expected a LOT more. The best things were the children's dishes and the desserts.

    The crispy rice cake adds both great texture and flavor to the Bigeye Tuna Poke

    They make their own ginger beer here! Definitely worth a try; crisp and very refreshing :D Though it sounds a bit conventional the Shiitake and Leek spring rolls are incredibly good.

    Absolutely delicious. Try the foie gras shumai and the tuna poke. The lobster fried rice was really good, especially the sauces.

    Definitely get the signature lobster dish! Hawaiian tuna poke was great too, but the crispy rice tasted better than the tuna. It just needs some spicy mayo.

    Calamari and Lamb rack are decent. They have some good wine selection. Note that its a bit high end.

    It’s been 13 years since this French-Asian spot opened, but a meal here still delights. Get the garlic–black pepper lobster with lemongrass fried rice. Read more

    Around greater Boston, the name Blue Ginger is synonymous with staying power. Try the maitake-stuffed bao with pickled bok choy.

    The rack of lamb is awesome! Also the lychee margarita and lychee martini are both very good.

    The grilled miso-mustard NZ rack of lamb was fab. The accompaniments of roasted new potatoes, maitake mushroom sauce and wasabi-sweet pea emulsion were just as well made.

    Sit in the bar rather than in the dinning room. It's the same menu but a little more festive. Plus on most nights Ming will join the bar crowd for dinner late in the evening

    Make someone take you here for your birthday. Start w/ the foie gras-shiitake shumai in sauternes-shallot broth, then hit the garlic black pepper lobster w/ lemongrass fried rice.
