We can't praise Ginger Cafe enough. We visited again after our March visit and found many menu items replaced or changed. For instance, the custard filled hedgehogs seem to have been replaced by custard filled baby pig buns. Our picks, in order of deliciousness, are the coconut cassava bars topped... read more

Stumbled on this restaurant on a shopping trip. I ate light. Just ordered Lettuce Cups with minced chicken. Hearty portion, with great taste and texture. I was impressed that even though the restaurant was not busy--mid-week night--two of the filled tables had Chinese people on them.

Four of us went to this restaurant, to celebrate two birthdays, plus a person at another table was also having a birthday dinner. They will bring you a dessert (a piece for each person at the table) and sing the birthday song to you. The dessert was a square of what looked to be a thick, sweet custard with caramel... More

Nice experience to choose several small plates to share. Tasty, but wraps and buns overtook the fillings. Server didn't come back to our table for long periods - noticeable, because we were following our appetite - ordering more plates as we (two grandparents, two 10+ kids) still were hungry. Pre-made mushu pork in thick pancakes didn't cut it, also.

The ginger restaurant was delightful. High vaulted ceilings gave it a spacious feeling and it was very clean. The menu is extensive, it even satisfied my vegan friend. Our waiter Alejandra was most knowledge about about all the food items on the cart and gave us a wonderful recommendations for delicious food that was very vegan.

The fried rice is awesome. Preparation of all the other dishes was excellent. A little more attention to detail, like bringing out both the meat and rice dish together, hot, would be nice. Also, a place named the Ginger Cafe should also offer ginger sauce (smile). Will definitely return if were ever in the area.

Yes, sports bar meets great sushi.... in a strip mall! don't let the exterior, location, or décor turn you away. The sushi was fresh and plentiful and the service great.

I have been here numerous times and have always had a good meal. Sometimes I have had the Dinner for two special and always take stuff home or have done simply a normal order. Food is always hot and delicious.
