Quick, cheap, & yummy!

Whenever I'm near Dundas Square in need of a quick cheap bite, I go here. They are vegetarian friendly and have good portions. Try their viet subs/sandwiches! I recommend the tofu one. Very good value for the price, and I find their food has more flavour than Banh Mi Boys.

When I first moved here, I loved going to Ginger. The restaurant was dingy, but the service was quick and efficient and the food was cheap and tasty. It was great for a quick work day lunch. I hadn't been there since it moved down Yonge until today. The decor was much improved. The prices have gone up. The service... More

Ginger specializes in Vietnamese food. Its menu includes a large range of pho, appetizers and rice or noodle based dishes. Orders are taken and paid for with the food prepared to order and then brought to you at your table. Service is quick and prices are cheap. This is basically fast food, asian style. The place is very busy, especially... More

I was in Toronto for few days, so not very familiar with Ginger. Went in craving Thai food, I was definitely in wrong place. I had Pad thai, green curry and mango salad (all vegetarian)- none of them were good :(

In a hurry? Food couldn't come quicker and all really good. Very good value for money considering this is downtown. I had the chicken noodle soup. Really filling and fresh. Highly recommended for a good lunch.

Convenient location near the Bloor/Yonge street intersection. Pretty good place for a tasty meal at fast-food prices. Many customers do a take-out, seating space being so limited. Most dishes were C$7-8, and we enjoyed the grilled meat (pork, chicken, beef or shrimp) on rice or vermicelli. Service is minimal.

We just went to this restaurant and enjoyed the experience. The food was very good, the service was great and the prices were reasonable. This was our first time to this restaurant and we were not disappointed. We will be returning.

Been to Hanoi? I have. "Same-same" as they say in the old market north of Hoan Kiem, only the chairs are better here. You still get the odd belch of diesel too, being on the Yonge St sidewalk. GINGER is quick, reliable, and - what you really need to know - it's authentic, and that's worth the line-up. But -... More
