Ginger is one of those restaurants that you can return to again and again and are always guaranteed great food and great service. It is the only restaurant that I will order squid. I never order it anywhere else as I know it won't compare to Ginger's and I'll be disappointed. There is a wide choice on the menu but... More

Distinctly average food. Unimpressed by menu which was boring and service was ok. It was a bit noisy and not ideal for couples. There must be better than this in Belfast. A bit confused that it comes 4th, although have been caught out by trip advisor ratings before

Takes a lot to impress me eating out but was blown away with every mouthful of everything I ate and I sampled all of our table of 8s courses! Outstanding food. Will be going back at every chance I get. Service was fab too, it's my new favourite place!

Decided to try this restaurant again as last time not happy with speed of kitchen output - this time much better although not convinced they can cope with a full restaurant. I had the mussels, full sea bream and cheese board - although a little pricey I have to say food was excellent.and the waiter service attentive and helpful. Overall... More

We have been here many times both for lunch and evening meal and also recommended to friends and have found this place to be the most consistently good restaurant in Belfast city centre and we have tried many others! Also very near to great Victoria st. Station. Deserves to be in the first four best.

restaurant was lovely. Very modern decor, accomodating staff and fantastic food in both presentation and taste. Wine list was also excellent. Reservations a must.

Amazing food (be sure to check... More

This place came recommended to me from my work colleagues and my hotel was close by. I went in without a booking and they managed to find me a table although fully booked. The food, atmosphere, staff and menu are all fantastic and keenly priced for the number 1 rated restaurant in Belfast. Well worth several visits. I have already... More
