So very tasty and well presented variety of asian food!

I was blessed to attend a medical dinner program upstairs a couple weeks ago and enjoyed the atmosphere, the service, and the food! We had a variety of wines to choose from and had appetizers including various egg rolls and sushi. I ordered the kale salad and it was to die for! I could have been... read more

One of the best dining experiences I've had. Traverse city is on the foodie map because of places like this. Freshness of the ginger and wasabi on the California roll, crab Rangoon with mustard and mango sweet and sour are amazing. Highly recommend making a stop if you are in town.

The food was good, atmosphere nice. I especially liked their lava cake-ish dessert and the forbidden rice.

My favorite time to go is happy hour. Lots of choices and a great place to meet with friends. The Lettuce Wraps are enough for a meal.

Hard to find service north of Grand Rapids Mi. They understand it. Sushi top notch. Ambiance at the highest level. Have been able to return a couple of times. Don't miss out.

We had dinner here during my bachelorette party. I'm gluten free and they had plenty of options. The sushi was amazing! It was a fun atmosphere.

Red ginger is a awesome place. Pricey, but, wonderful food, great service, and nice atmosphere. Right downtown, traverse city. Great place for a cocktail waiting for the show, next door. Great appetizers also. Try it, you'll like it....

A treat on Main Street in Traverse City. Sushi rolls and Nigiri style all done really well. Small serving sizes but the food is very good. I had the Ahi Tuna for dinner and it was delicious, just a small serving size. The wine servings are even smaller. Be careful of your drinks.

My husband and I had heard from friends that this place was very good so we decided to give it a try for our anniversary dinner. We were not disappointed! The staff sweetly had an anniversary card waiting for us at the table when we arrived. It was just a nice thoughtful touch! The setting was hopping but still cozy... More

Very nice restaurant, decor and bar area aesthetics are welcoming plus encourage the fun, lively atmosphere. Menu stretches beyond only Sushi, to interesting and more traditional entrees if you not in the mood for Sushi and are looking for something more substantial. That being said, the Sushi here is phenomenal, from the traditional rolls to the more experimental varieties that... More
