We have been here twice over the Christmas holidays and on both occasions the food was excellent, service was excellent and the adivce given about the food very accurate. The sushi was the best I've had in Belfast. The Japanese curry was aromatic and light. It is a small and intimate restaurant and well decorated with good taste and flair.... More

I have been here twice now, never to leave disappointed. The food is fantastic and the service is superb. They have a wide range of dishes from sushi to soup and curries. They have a nice selection of Japanese beer or you can go for their nice house red wine! Great value for money!

Long menu led us to a value for money set menu, with an amuse guile, mixed starter, and main course. All served promptly and courteously. I had a discount card which couldn't come off the already discounted set menu, but the staff insisted on pricing each item to give me the best possible deal.great service. The tastes were unthreatening but... More

I took two friends to The Ginger Tree during lunch time. Taro is a very helpful and polite man, he remained very calm when we had hard decisions to make. The menu is quite extensive so it took us awhile to decide what to have. Taro brought us out appetisers of green beans with a ?miso paste on them. It... More

I've had Gingertree delivered a few times and the sushi is always really nice so we decided to go for dinner here. I will not be back. Never experienced such horrible service, genuinely felt we were an inconvience to the one waitress. She was rude and rushed, it took us about 20 minutes to even get our drinks order. It's... More

My wife and I went to the Ginger Tree last saturday night. I was impressed by the service - although it was fairly quiet for a Saturday night. Everything was well-prepared and tasted good. My wife had a salmon dish - which she felt was a little over-cooked. My prawns on a skewer were very tasty. W had a medium... More

Arrogant and rude staff - won't be back. Food is okay but doesn't make up for the extremely bad attitude.
