Great Lunch Buffett

Enjoyed the lunch buffet recently. It had been a couple of years since I tried it. Much more variety this time. Quality was better also. I thought it was a good value given the number of choices and price. I noticed the chef was there to check the buffet quite often and to replenish. Everything was... read more

The food came out in a timely manner and the portions were decent sized. We had the dumpling for appetizers along with a dipping sauce that we enjoyed. Their special fried rice with everything was tasty as well. The food here is consistently good, service is a little slow based on the amount of customers and not their staff. I'd... More

The portions are very large (I took out about 10-15 pounds of food for $30) but the food itself was very bland and left us unsatisfied. Maybe this place is catered toward the typical Minnesota tastebud, but I expect more flavor. I'll pass.

This was our second time at Red Ginger....we stopped in last year while staying next-door at the hotel and thought the food was good. This year, we called ahead to see if they could accommodate my daughter's softball team and their parents- a group of about 25. We were seated at the back of the restaurant at two tables. Our...

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
