Lovely find

We found this lovely restaurant right down the street from our motel. It offers amazing sushi and Japanese drinks. I ordered the Godzilla drink and shared tuna tartare and various sushi rolls with my husband. Yum!!

Stopped in for a salmon teriyaki bento box lunch. Bento box was excellent, including several pieces if sushi (tuna and salmon nigiri), California Roll, salad with ginger dressing, miso soup. Reasonably priced and friendly service.

I've been a fan for many years now and try to get there whenever I'm in the area. The rebuilding and my schedule kept us apart. Tonight was almost enough to make up for the lapse. The Tempura was the best I've ever had. I could have feasted on the coating alone. There was NO taste of oil. They must... More

Recently Ginger was remodeled and it looks much nicer than before. The Sushi is still some of the best outside of Boston and they have added additional parking in the rear.

"Mediocre" -- middle of the road, neither good nor bad, not awful, not great, edible without enthusiasm. That is Ginger Japanese restaurant. We were hoping for better but our experience today was across-the-board mediocre. The menu is Japanese standard. Some sushi, various noodle and teriyaki, nothing to get our palates really interested. We tried just appetizers. A duck and scallion... More

Only good--not great-- food. Not really authentic Japanese and not a Japanese person among the employees.

This small restaurant has a sleek and modern decor that is welcoming, if a bit crowded (the tables are too close together for my taste). In our three or four visits so far, we have always been greeted warmly, seated quickly, and given very attentive service. The menu has the kinds of Japanese dishes that you might expect, including sushi,... More

When they tore down the building where the old Ginger was housed I thought I'd seen the last of this place, especially with the adequate sushi they have a bit down the road at Asiana. But no, not only is it back with the completion of the construction, but much bigger, nicer, in for the long haul, etc. The new... More
