Wild Ginger Restaurant Review: Wild Ginger serves Pan-Asian cuisine with a modern flair. The large dining room has high-backed wooden booths offering an appearance of privacy. Two full-service bars serve late into the night, especially on Mondays when there’s live jazz. Start with an assortment of satays: grilled chicken, beef and prawns, lamb and rabbit. All arrive glistening with complementary marinades, are seldom overcooked, and have their own intriguing dipping sauce. Squash and sweet potato stew might also begin a meal, or order a spicy Malaysian seafood bouillabaisse. Our choice among the five curries is the Dungeness crab, although the Fragrant Duck is equally enticing with its crispy, deep-fried skin redolent of cinnamon and star anise, plus companion steamed buns and plum sauce. A full bar and a solid wine list add to Wild Ginger's pleasures, as do desserts such as coconut gelato or chocolate torte.
