Great Food, reasonably priced

Walked in off the street for a table of 6 and they shuffled chairs and tables around to accommodate us near the front window. The food was excellent. We all selected individual entrees and mains. As it was a Sunday there was only 1 man to attend to us and the service was excellent. Highly... read more

I booked a table at this restaurant and one of the members of the party is a Coeliac and is unable to consume gluten. I called the restaurant to confirm that an option for a meal could be arranged for my gluten free guest, however i was subjected to a lengthy and unpleasant conversation with a staff member who advised...

Very clean restaurant and excellent service. Lunch specials Mon-Fri are $9 and served with rice. Mine (combination satay) was piping hot and delicious. Drinks are reasonably priced. Good coffee, also reasonably priced. Seating inside and outside. Will definately eat here again.

The food is really good, the service is also good. I think the tables are too closed together, you feel you are having dinner with the stranger next to you. Next time I will do takeaway.

Ate here after wandering past it the night before. The front of the shop opens up, so the shop space doesn't feel tight and restrictive. The service was quick and friendly. The food was fresh, hot and very tasty. This restaurant in the Manuka shopping centre. It's an area with a lot of different styles of places to eat. Without... More

I like eating here, especially in the summer. The food is tasty, the restaurant has great views to the street, and you can linger and enjoy the night and each others company OR have a quick meal and get out of there. The last time we dined here we had white bait (which I love), duck san choi boy, hand... More

I have eaten at Ginseng twice now about 5 years apart and both times the quality of the food was exceptional. Service was also excellent and timely. I will eat here next time I am in Canberra.

We recently visited this restaurant based on the great reviews. It seems to be a family run business and they are very accommodating and the food is very nice and fresh. Servings were a decent size except for a Thai prawn hotpot type dish which was very small and therefore not good value. I was also suprised to see honey... More

Four of us shared an entree (duck spring rolls - small but very tasty), and three main dishes with steamed rice. Ginseng does a very good version of my old favourite, shentung (not sure of the spelling) chicken, and we also enjoyed the lamb with mint and mirin sauce - very tender pieces of lamb with a subtle favour.
