Best place for sushi.

Great place to have a dinner. Staff is very friendly and the food is excellent. There is a great variety of tasty dishes that will appeal to everybody. My grandsons (age 11 and 13) love it there.

It is often said dining at an ethnic restaurant is like being transported to the country of the fare's origin. This was definitely not the case at Blue Ginger. You can find a medley of Asian cuisines on their menu; Japanese, Chinese, Thai, and even some Indian. At first glace, it looked promising. When the food arrived however, I suddenly... More

Have been here 4 times in the last couple of years (we are from out of town) and it is consistently good - good food, good value, good service and great variety on the menu --- I've had sushi, dim sum, thai and all delicious. There is a lunch box special - great value and filling

I enjoyed this meal. Everything was fresh and tasty and served promptly. The server was amazing and made the meal a special event. I recommend the Happy Tuna.

My mom and I really enjoy their lunch special. Good value and tasty. It comes with soup, salad, and two choices of items. The tempura and the curry are always a good choice.

This restaurant has great potential, but due to the dated decor and mediocre food we would not recommend Blue Ginger.

Second time eating from this restaurant. First time we ordered take out and they messed our order up and left the skin on the sashimi. This time we ate in thinking we should give it another shot. The restaurant smells a little like urine. We were seated and given water. I asked for tea and the waitress brought some out.... More

Lacking everything in the dish...they should just take it out of the menu instead of serving a pathetic made up horrible vertion that is honestly embarrasing... Calling that dish pad thai and sell it... More
