We dined here with family after a movie at Gold Class, Karingal because the dining at Gold Class is not 'up to scratch' any more. Very god Chinese cuisine. We shall visit again!

Top quality, very extensive menu and something for everyone. It's certainly the most upmarket Chinese restaurant in Frankston - bring someone here when you want a more well-to-do Asian experience. Excellent service, licensed, and the food is a little more fancy and modern - almost fusion style. Not you usual sweet and sour basic fare here.

Have been to this place a few times and returned again with friends for dinner. As always the place was quite busy and we were immediately seated and asked if we wanted anything to drink. The food we had was excellent and very tasty. Service was good without being extraordinary. Some of the staff could perhaps be a bit happier,... More

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... 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. The staff were so wonderful and friendly and very attentive. The menu was quite extensive so there was plenty of options for everyone to chose from and meals were well priced. All of... More

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.
