A regular haunt for honest-to-goodness Thai food

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... read 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

Came here for lunch today, lots of variety, including vegetarian options. Pleasant and clean atmosphere, basic decor, friendly and efficient service, and best of all, absolutely delicious food. Our meal was so good, I ordered take out to bring with me for supper tonight. Prices are very fair, serving size is generous for a lunch menu. The vegetarian spring rolls... More

Lots of vegetarian options here. My meal was good, although it had a bit too much of something - salt maybe? The wine was surprisingly good too. I was in a hurry but the service was fast and polite, so I had time to linger and enjoy the view. The decor is definitely basic, but I'd rather the effort go... More

We had dinner there Friday night. The room is a little cold so dress warm. The food is very good and very reasonably priced. The spices tend to be on the hot side so you may want to try a few mild dishes first. The coconut ice cream is excellent.

I have eaten at the Gingergrass in Halifax twice now and both times the food has been amazing. The décor is basic but the service was fast and the food....well, like I said it's really good. Portion size is average and price is reasonable.

Dinner here last Saturday night with two friends. We all ordered the same dish, the pineapple curry combo. Our waitress described it as a "low medium" on the heat scale. The food was delicious but spicier than we expected. Deep fried bananas for dessert were to die for. Friend had their Thai beer, which was very good. We will go... More

I had my first Pho (shrimp) here and thought it was delicious; a complete meal in a bowl. The service is great and the prices are reasonable. With tax and tip, my total came out to $20.

Small family-owned restaurant in the heart of Halifax, providing a range of vegetarian and non-vegetariann dishes at reasonable prices. The food was tasty and absolutely delicious – certainly the best Thai food I had during the past years. Staff is very friendly. Vegetarians willl find a wide range of dishes to choose from. I'd definitely be back if I am... More
