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 was here for a business lunch, they have small menu and small portion for lunch which is okay but I guess I would pay couple dollars more for a better portion size. That way Talay Thai is good. I must say the food was well done so no complaints on that front. Overall I don't mind going again but... 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

I eat at Vietnamese restaurants all over North America. Love Pho. The Pho at Gingergrass is about average. I will go back because it is still the best in Halifax. The service was outstanding. The waitress was attentive throughout the meal.

When looking for a quick and yummy bite to eat my friends and I will often pick Gingergrass. The food is very flavourful, the service always great and the prices are reasonable. The fresh spring rolls as an appetizer are especially delicious !
