So fresh!

A friend of mine had eaten at Gingergrass and really liked it. Walking around in downtown Halifax, we came upon it by accident and decided to have lunch there. The place is unassuming and like many other Asian restaurants, rather basic. Unfortunately, since it has been a while since our visit, I... read more

Used to come here when I was in university 25 years ago. Every time I visit halifax, I make it a point to eat there! I'm never disappointed! Still a great deal - quite inexpensive specially for the area.

Good quality Thai / Vietnamese food at a reasonable price. It seemed to close rather early but this seems to be a feature of many Canadian restaurants.

Had yellow curry with chicken and shrimp! Nice and spicy accompanied with an unfamiliar beer much like Sapporro. Great price, service, and food! Great for a quick bite!

Something for everyone, great food, good service. A busy spot at lunch and dinner time. They also offer take out. So many options to choose from and a nice selection of combo and group menu choices, if you just can't decide.

We live in Halifax and this is one of our favourite restaurants. We have been dozens of times, most recently last week, and have never been disappointed. The food is always wonderful, served hot, and served with a smile. For the price (about $12 per entree) it is excellent value. With a window seat you can people watch, or have... More

I am retrospectively writing this review given that I lived in the Halifax Regional Municipality from 2007-2009, but wanted to highlight what a great place this was. I regularly dined at this restaurant, often when I had an hour to spare (walking distance from St. Mary's University). I grew to know the owner quite well, and she knew my order... More

Although the decor is ho hum, the restaurant has the advantage of being on a corner with lots of windows--good for people watching! The food is very good and the service is very fast, a winning combination. I had the green curry combo plate. The curry was a bit on the hot side, but the combo plate made for plenty... More
