Yum

Tasty, savory and worth a visit! Stopped in for a quick bite and glad it was in form to expectations. Comparable to Wild Ginger in Seattle? No, it stands alone for the food!

I had eaten here years ago and remembered it. The food was still delicious and they had sorbet made on site. We had passion fruit--wow, exceptional.

All the food ordered including the ones with the spicy logo was really really sweet. They call it "Asian food" but the main Schzwan Shrimp was just Shrimp dowsed in BBQ sauce with sweet fruit on the side. I have been eating out in California for the last 13 weeks and it is by far the worst meal I have... More

This restaurant is fine. I liked my food, the sake was good, the tea was interesting, overall it was a great experience. I feel like it was a bit (alot) overpriced. I guess if its there for tourists who may not know better it works but if you live in or have ever been to a city larger than Cambria... More

This is definitely a place for people who are naive, and unfamiliar about and not accustomed to Asian and Southeast Asian cuisine. As much as I appreciated the fact that the owner use local produce and the food is clean tasting, everything is bland and uninspired. The thai food is water down - which is blasphemy! I would have appreciated... More

Cambria is a very small town and restaurant selections are limited. Wild Ginger was a lovely surprise. Food was light and delicious! The restaurant was not overwhelmed on the night we were there and the service was very good. As we are relocating here we will become regulars!

Was pleasantly surprised to have this tiny Thai restaurant in Cambria. Very few indoor tables but food was well prepared and tasty. Would love to enjoy this restaurant on a warm day so that I could sit in the nice patio area. Loved the gushy, chocolate bread pudding desert!

Went there for the first time during a recent visit to Cambria and were so pleased with the quality and freshness of their food. It's a small quaint restaurant that is kept immaculate. Our server was very hospitable and courteous in her demeanor. We went there for lunch and I had their Thai Beef Salad and my wife, Orange Chicken.... More

I have never experienced something quite so bad! How can you mess up Chicken Satay! The wait was outrageous! The owner should have been there to help the poor girl in the front who was trying her best to hold down the fort!

My friends and I were lured in by the delicious, imaginative menu and were not disappointed. This small cafe has a short but excellend wine menu and a wonderful pan-asian food menu. We tried an appetizer, soup, salad, main course, and dessert, so we got a thorough experience of the food served. Everything tasted fresh, authentic, and delicious. I especially... More
