Your favourite Richmond Indian restaurant will be opening a second location, and this time around they are upping their ambiance game.
“We invested a lot of money in the ambiance this time,” said Bob Singh, owner of Ginger Indian Cuisine. “It’s going to be a combination of Western Interior with authentic Indian food.”
Redefining what fusion can mean in the restaurant business, Bob and his wife Mandeep focused on creating a western fine-dining feel, something that is not very common with restaurants that serve traditional Indian food.
With twice the amount of seats than the first location, this second incarnation of Ginger Indian Cuisine will become, Bob said, “the biggest and first fine-dining Indian restaurant in Richmond.”
The menu will remain the same, barring a few special new items. As is with the first location, the restaurant will continue to be dedicated to making dishes that do not use any artificial dyes and food colours. Rather, Bob said, “we use only the ingredients’ natural food colour.”
What will be different about this location?
Aside from doubling in size, the second Ginger Indian Cuisine will have a newly built lounge area, “so if somebody wants to have a couple of drinks and watch a game,” Bob said, “they can do so in that half of the restaurant.” The other half is for family and fine-dining. In a nutshell, Bob described it as “having a combination of everything for everyone.”
For now, Bob’s customers say that the food and the service are best… “for now,” he said, “but I’m hoping once we open the second one, they will say that it’s the ambiance, food, and service.” Excited for the customers’ reactions when they take their first steps into the new restaurant, Bob sounds like he is confident that he will hit that perfect trifecta.
The doors open the first week of September and you can find them in Richmond at 9100 Blundell Road. To find out more about Ginger Indian Cuisine, visit www.gingerindiancuisine.ca, call 604-370-1300, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also find Ginger Indian Cuisine on Facebook.
