Great food

There was a large group of us (16) that sat down to dinner. My only complaint was there was no wine glasses on the table and we had to ask twice for them as we had bought wine with us. We ordered and entrees were served pretty quickly. There was a slight delay with the main meals all coming out... read more

We have supported this restaurant since it opened and it has never failed to let us down. Consistently full and consistently excellent. Went there to celebrate a recent birthday and was delighted to receive a free birthday cocktail. It was most appreciated. Nothing like feeling special when dining at a special place! Well done Ginseng and sorry it's taken me... More

We came to Ginseng for a family birthday occassion with two small children under 7 years, based on many good reviews here on TripAdvisor. We weren't disappointed.

We eat here frequently, the food is fantastic, always fresh. The service is friendly, you are served quickly but without any feeling of being rushed. It is usually quite busy.

Staff are absolutely wonderful, they make it a pleasure to visit again and again. Tasty meals that can be varied to individual tastes, children catered for, reasonably priced. My personal favourite is the sweet and sour battered fish (the only sweet and sour that doesnt set off my asthma). Also wasabi prawns, yellow curry prawns, masaman beef, green thai curry... More
