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 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.

I always go to this restaurant when outlet shopping in Gilroy. It is not affiliated with the outlets, but is in the building next door to the outlet building 4 which houses the Gap. The restaurant has a variety of Thai and Chinese dishes which are flavorful and reasonably priced. I had the basil chicken and my sister had some... More

Driving through Gilroy this week on route to Paso Robles, my friends and I stopped for lunch midway. We found this gem and decided to give it a try. A great lunch. Busy place, comfortable surroundings, and large portions. The three of us split an order of potstickers, and two different lunch entrees with steamed rice. More than enough. And....the... More

We went to Ginger Cafe for chicken noodles with bak choi, three small hedgehog custard buns, and some black bean balls with sesame seeds. The mie was excellent and the vegetables were fresh. It was so good and so reasonably priced that we went out of our way to visit Gilroy and Ginger Cafe for porcupine buns, coconut spicy soup,... More
