A touch of the Orient in Niagara on the Lake

The experience was okay. Food was okay, portions very small, price high. It was a slow night and the server was not as attentive as we had liked.

We have been here for dinner in the past, always great food. I would say it's the best restaurant in Niagara. Always consistent. Spring Rolls are a must have, as well as crab cakes, which I would say are the best I have ever had. Mains consist of a variety of dishes. Family operated, kitchen, Dinning room, all run by... More

I've eaten at a number of restaurants in NOTL over the years. There are several other excellent ones; but all are higher priced than Ginger's. Not that Ginger's is cheap, but it may offer the best value for money in town. The service was superb (although it was a very slow night in late November, making it easy for the... More

Best value in NOTL! I don't like curry......but love Gingers! The spring rolls are to die for. Seth and his Mom make everyone feel welcome! And, we LOVE the creme brule!

My husband and I ate here during a weekend visit. Loved it! Great service - clean crisp environment - and terrific fusion food. We split the calamari, soup and curry. Delicious!

Excellent fusion food. Great local wines by the glass from smaller vineyards. We received excellent suggestions for pairings and appropriate glassware (thank you Ginger!). Attentive and pleasant service. We ordered three courses, were completely satisfied, and arrived a bit tardy for the for the show as we were enjoying dinner so much and lost track of time. The room was... More
