Chinese food just OK - lots better in Houston. Service was surprisingly inept - usually Chinese restaurant servers are really on the ball - ours didn't speak very good English and ordering was a bit confusing. It's reasonably priced for the location but not for Chinese food.

I love going to Cafe Ginger for lunch. It's quiet enough that you can carry on a business conversation without having to yell across the table, the food is good and the prices are very reasonable. I always ask for Victor to wait on me, and I've never been disappointed with the food, service or quality.

The service is obviously well trained and managed here, as they constantly, anticipated one's next request. They claim to be a Chinese/ sushi fusion restaurant, but I saw no one ordering sushi and no sushi chef hovering over the fish case. I tend to avoid sushi establishments that don't buzz with activity and high volume for freshness. However, we ordered... More

The staff was highly attentive from the moment I set foot in cafe Ginger. The Miso soup was delicious, and the sushi fresh and tasty. I was given low sodium soy sauce and watched the bartender make drinks with obvious care and satisfaction in his craft. I was given a choice of some quality cold sake drinks, and loved the... More

My husband and I dined here for Valentine's Day. I have never had a waitress so polite, attentive, accessible, and knowledgeable about the menu and wines. I could not believe the food was so flavorful and tasty. The calamari was great; the accompanying sauce is spicy and very unique. My husband ordered the Won Ton soup and said it was... More

We were a party of three. Two ordered from the cooked foods menu, I ordered from the sushi menu. My group was half way through their meal when my food finally arrived. They politely kept coming by saying "your sushi will be right out!" Or person ordered the sea bass, it was lovely. My sushi was not the freshest tasting,... More

My wife and I recently visited Cafe Ginger with a visiting relative and had a wonderful, tasty dinner with plenty for leftovers. In fact, our relative took some of the leftovers with her for dinner on her plane ride home. Our relative had a beef dish made with beef tenderloin that was tender and delicious. My wife had a chicken... More

This place has really good Chinese food as well as sushi.The place is a bit expensive compared to other asian restaurants but you are getting quality here and thus paying for it. They also have a really large wine menu.

Tasty but expensive Americanized Asian food. Very good wine list for an Asian restaurant. Good service, good decor. Ample parking.

This was an overall poor experience for a place with good reviews on other sites. The two martinis were weak and relatively tasteless, the duck crepe tasted nothing like duck and the General Tso chicken was more expensive but no better than elsewhere. As for the service, our waiter was ingratiating and annoying. The piano bar atmosphere and erratic decor... More
