When exploring my mom's new neighborhood we happened on this wonderful restaurant. The shopping center is mostly empty but this restaurant is worth stopping in. Large portions. Both times we have been there we went home with enough for a second meal.

When I want to eat in a chinese restaurant, I go to Ancient Ginger. I love the eggdrop soup with the wide fried noodles!!!! I have had the chicken & broccoli, sesame chicken, spare ribs, and they were all very good. I REALLY like their egg rolls. They are the best around. They also do take out for when you... More

Myself and my husband are always on an eating healthy kick as he just had a quad bypass 8 weeks ago. So we always get The Harvest, which is shrimp and chicken steamed with broccoli and brown rice. I just love the freshness of their food! Because it has no sauce you can really taste the freshness. They are always... More

We enjoy a good Chinese meal and have eaten in several restaurants but I feel that this was one of the better one. My Mongolian Beef was incredibly favorable, initially it came with peppers which I can't eat so they remade it for me very graciously. The Dim Sum were excellent as well and my wife's lemon chicken was crispy... More

I had take out last week. I am willing to bet they have served me 500 times in the last decade. I have tried nearly every dish and they are all good Chinese food. Sure, I eat elsewhere, and all types, but for me Ancient Ginger is comfort food.

After three different friends recommended Ancient Ginget, I finally tried it. It EXCEEDED my expectations! So far, my absolute favorite dish is the Shrimp with Candied Walnuts. I had this dish many years ago and have been looking for a good version of it for years. I found it here! I now get this every time I go. Mongolian Beef,... More

After my bad experience of waiting over an hour and a half for a table at PF Chang's I decided to leave when I remembered a small little restaurant in St.James called Ancient Ginger...We haven't been there in over 7 years because of a waitress that had the ability to make everyone uncomfortable. Sometimes when there is a storm... any... More
