We visited here last year and the food was amazing. We sat by the window looking out at the Boardman river. The service was excellent and it was a great date night experience. The wine selection was great and I've heard their cocktails are exceptional. I would for sure visit again!

You never know what type of atmosphere it will be in Asian style restaurants. A lively one is difficult to come by, but the Red Ginger is it. We went about 6:00 on a Thursday aftrrnoon and there was a 10 minute wait. It has modern decor, TV in the bar, professional staff and a large menu. The sushi was... More

My wife and I first ate here in 2009 during our honeymoon and we were extremely pleased with the quality of the meals. Whenever we make a trip to Traverse City we try to visit this restaurant as we are never disappointed! The Red Dragon and Blood Orange Martinis are a great way to start the evening. From the food...

I’ve been meaning to submit a review after my first and second visits to Red Ginger, but never got around to it. My husband and I dined at Red Ginger again this past weekend and I finally decided it’s time for me to give it the praise it so definitely deserves. This is officially my favorite restaurant in Traverse City... More

We loved everything about Red Ginger. The Thai Curries were really good and the ribs were superb and the prices are reasonable.

After hearing there were no good Asian restaurants in northern Michigan, we came across Red Ginger ... and were impressed! Great decor, good ambiance ... a fun place to dine. The wine list surprised me, a good selection and fairly priced. The menu was extensive, need to go back again because we couldn't get beyond the sashimi and rolls. Sashimi... More

Fun restaurant known for sushi, but I found many other choices i could eat since I am not a sushi fan. lots of small plates to share or get an entree.

Don't get me wrong, Red Ginger ranks top three for me but I feel at times I don't get what I pay for. $8 for California roll? Not that I order this anyway, but c'mon, charging double for a simple roll is preposterous! How is the calamari not discounted during happy hour? What happened to lunch service? How is the... More

This is one of the most popular spots to eat at in TC for good reason! They have an awesome happy hour, with appetizer and drink specials. We had the crab rangoon and lettuce wraps as well as some beers on tap and cocktails. I highly recommend you make a stop here!

Went here as they had Gluten Free options. They weren't well versed in these options, but the dishes we had were quite good. Fun atmosphere, fresh fish and a trendy little spot for downtown TC.
