My wife and I frequent Ginger Red regularly. We have never had a bad experience, my wife LOVES the honey chicken and their sushi is very good as well.

We've only been 3 times (On Sundays) but each time was consistently very good in terms of service AND food quality. It's now earned a top spot on our "Chinese food" restaurant list.

I have been going to Ginger Red since they opened! Absolutely the BEST Food in the area. We moved away from Mechanicsville in 2010 (so sad to not be close anymore!). We do make it a point to stop if we are traveling through Richmond back to Williamsburg. It is worth the drive. Service is excellent, owners are very engaged... More

I was really impressed with the quality of the food and flavor. Even though I have not tried the sushi, it's only a matter of time. The service is quick and the atmosphere is really inviting. Look forward to going back.

I have been frequenting this establishment since it opened and there's a reason I keep going back...it is consistently good! Prices are very reasonable, quality of food is excellent and staff is very friendly. I like the fact I see the same people in there all the time so I know they don't have a lot of turnover. My kids... More

We have eaten at Ginger Red many, many times, and I've never had a bad meal or poor service. Always top notch. Sushi nights are packed, so plan early. Good variety and good prices.

Best Asian food I think I have had. The service was great. Our server was pleasant, nice and knew the food. We started with Lettuce Wraps. Sounds boring but the Bib Lettuce was fresh along with the filling that was made right then. The Japanese Pork Chops stuffed with ham and cheese were excellent. I think maybe a green vegetable...

My girlfriend and I love to visit Ginger Red, it's one of our favorite restaurants in Mechanicsville. Don't go into this restaurant thinking it's just another chinese take out place. The food here is fantastic! The decor and atmosphere are also way above average. General Tso's Chicken is a staple for me when it comes to chinese food and they... More

We've driven past this small, unassuming place many times over the past year and never even noticed it. We recently discovered that it was highly rated by TripAdvisor and decided to give it a try when the time was right, which turned out to be tonight. We were very pleased and consider this our new favorite Asian restaurant within a... More

After ready so many sterling reviews, I wanted to give this place a try. Ooops! The Hot and Sour soup was neither hot nor sour-completely bland. The egg rolls were OK. The kung pao shrimp, noted to be spicy on the menu, was very sweet with no spice at all. The sushi rolls were possible the smallest sushi rolls I've... More
