Among the best sushi n both freshness and preparation, We have been sushi fans for decades, long before it was readily available.This compares favorably with sushi we have had in Boston, Cambridge, New York, DC and many other cities. Mid size family run pleasant environment and friendly service.

I should have known better than to go to a japanese restaurant with the name of 'ginger', after all, I had lived in Tokyo, Japan for 5 'superashi'years¥¥¥¥¥! The restaurant was full and the service was good, unfortunately the food went rapidly downhill; the RICE, foundation of all sushi and maki was undercooked with no seasoning; sushi were edible but...

Good location with ample street parking. Newly re-opened. Relaxing atmosphere. Nice décor and comfy seating. Mid-priced range to upper-priced value for lunch; more expensive for dinner selection. Had 2 varieties of bento box: Good quality meal; presentation looked good; sushi seemed fresh but cut smaller than average. Quantity is sufficient (although skimpy on rice); portions are on the small scale....... More

Restaurant was clean, food was good, however our waitress was not very friendly nor good. When my husband ordered Teriyaki Shrimp and it came doused with sesame seeds, it wasn't anything he could eat since he can't have seeds for medical reasons. When we asked the waitress if she could make one without seeds, she brought a new one without... More

It's been what, 2 years since Ginger was last open. Well it's back and better than ever. I recently went there for lunch and found the new building to be 2-3 times larger than before and the food especially the sushi is as good as ever. Service as always is top notch. If you'd given up waiting for Ginger, forget... More

Thank goodness the construction is over. Very happy to be back at Ginger. The larger size and new decor is very impressive and elegant, yet still very friendly. Had three sushi chefs cranking out their delicious sushi menu. My daughter's sushi came quickly, so did my tempura. Unfortunately, the two teriyaki dinners for my son and husband came 20 minutes...

After having been closed for more than a year for major renovation, Ginger re-opened , larger and more comfortable than before. The quality, preparation and service were every bit as good. Their tempura batter is as good as I've ever had anywhere, and timed just right. Their combo plate with sushi is delightful. A real jewel.

Ginger was a great neighborhood sushi restaurant in Bedford which served delicious sushi in an elderly run down building. The building has now been completely rebuilt and Ginger has re-opened at last. The sushi remains completely delicious, fresh and beautifully presented while the restaurant is now sparkling and elegant - yet still with a warm neighborhood atmosphere and friendly service... More

Hate eating out, but this place made a believer out of me. As a fairly recent California transplant, good sushi is more than food - its an obsession... Moved to Massachusetts, searched high and low, asked around, read reviews, tried numerous hot spots in Boston, Brookline and beyond - some good, some not... Finally, found this little hole in the...

Have eaten a lot of sushi, but I got tired of their menu. It did not change in the 7 years that I lived in the town. Very friendly management, bu they need to spici up when they rebuild the building.
