We called with a table of five and they were able to accommodate us last minute on a Friday. It was very busy and we were thankful as we were in town to visit a family member at the hospital. The food was wonderful. The sushi trio was excellent and my husband loved the Shrimp and Crab Udon. Another person... More

We were highly unimpressed with the quality of our food. The atmosphere and location are great but the food was gimmicky and more about presentation than quality.

This was our first time at Red Ginger in TC and it was a great experience. The appetizers were amazing and we spilt some sushi rolls that were just as good. There isn't a huge selection for main dishes, but if you like sushi then it isn't a problem.

Asian fusion menu, lively diners, great service, and conveniently located. Food was great - best surprise was the crab rangoon...in tightly wrapped 'cigarette sticks' easy for dipping into an array of sauces. Sushi nagori prepared expertly and received rave reviews around the table.

We went to Red Ginger to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. Not only did we have a wonderful meal, but the staff was amazing.

We have been meaning to get to Red Ginger for quite awhile and make use a gift card we had received. This particular evening we were not in the mood for an entire dinner so we opted for a couple of glasses of wine, and shared a salad and an appetizer. The house red wine was ok but not exceptional.... More

All my life (aka, the past 5 years), friends, family and strangers have recommended Red Ginger to me. Having had access to delicious sushi at home, I hadn't made the visit a top priority. BOY do I regret it now. The flavors are fresh, the drinks are amazing (blood orange martini is a MUST), and the service matches the experience.... More

Red Ginger is always a good meal, but it is expensive. There are not many other options in this area for sushi (to the extent that is offered here). The ingredients are flown in fresh daily, so naturally the price is higher. The service can be touch and go, but in most cases we have pretty good service.
