We got the appetizer platter, chicken lo mein, and house special fried rice. The chicken wings were crisp but tasted off. The fried rice tasted like a bunch of leftovers tossed with rice and refried and over cooked. The lo mein was the best item we got and tasted as good as grocery store Chinese food. The egg rolls were... More

Of the 8 different things I tried from the buffet, probably 5 of them were 'best in class' (the best or second best I've had) for strip mall Chinese restaurants. (my favorite restaurant genre). Buffet and a soda for $10.39. Staff was attentive. I would have given it a 5 except there was no egg foo young on the buffet... More

We have gone here with groups and as a couple and have always been pleased. Red Ginger provides good food and predictable quality time after time. At times, as English speakers, we've been in the minority of patrons in the dining room. I think that's a good sign in a restaurant that provides ethnic food.

We've eaten in once and taken out several times. Everything we've tried has been delicious. The Pad Thai is just the right spiciness. Flavorful, but not mouth-burning. There is plenty of meat in all the dishes we've ordered. Veggies are cooked just right too - not mushy, but not too crunchy. The menu has an excellent variety. The last take-out... More

Never know what to expect. Sometimes it is great other times not so good. We ordered Sweet & Sour chicken. The chicken was over cooked and very tough. We also had the House fried rice was heavy and very greasy.

During a recent trip to see family, we stopped in to have the lunch buffet. We enjoyed it so much, that we stopped in the next day. Little did we know that they were having Dim Sum that day. Oh my that was good! The carts traveled around the restaurant, offering a variety of hot appetizers. We liked it so... More

Red Ginger has great food, but their lunch buffet is something to talk about! Lots of choices that are fresh, they keep it well stocked during lunch, You can also order off the menu, they serve off the menu family style if you like. They also have live Lobster and crab you can order and have prepared fresh! Full stocked... More

We have been eating here for a couple of years and it used to be one of our favorite restaurants. The last few months the service has been poor...waiting too long for beverages and the check. The last time we were there they gave us a small bowl of white rice for four people when I let the server know... More

We've driven by this place many times and finally stopped in to check it out. We found the food portions large, very tasty, and well-presented. High quality ingredients done up right. Overall value is good for the price. Service started out pretty snappy, but toward the end of our meal we felt quite forgotten with a 20+ minute wait to... More
