Wild Ginger McKenzie

Happy Hour Daily 3pm - 6pm

Wild Ginger, authentic Asian restaurant and Seattle staple since 1989.

Wild Ginger has been a Seattle staple since 1989 and is widely recognized as the city’s best Asian restaurant. It boasts authentic Southeast Asian cuisine, a lively bar, an extensive wine list, and accommodating service.

The new South Lake Union location at 8th & Blanchard on the bottom floor of McKenzie Seattle has the same Wild Ginger feel Seattle knows and loves but on a smaller scale. Seating approximately 150 people and offering outdoor patio options, the space provides guests with an intimate dining experience. Featuring a large bar and satay counter, they have the opportunity to see all of the action unfold right in front of them. Come enjoy some new flavors alongside some of Wild Ginger’s most popular signature dishes.
