We had lunch here in July 2014. Very cool decor and the food was so fresh and flavorful. We (2 couples) shared 4 appetizers and 4 different entrees running the gamut of taste and cuisines and all were very good. We would return to Wild Ginger without hesitation.

We went to Wild Ginger over a week ago and are still talking about it. Every dish was excellent coupled with great service. The standout dishes were the sea bass lettuce wraps, seven flavour beef and Szechuan green beans. Do not miss out on this great culinary experience.

A bit noisy, bit every item we had on the menu were delicious. The plate that stole the show was the 7 flavors beef. The wine cellar contains many gems from Germany ... Do not hesitate to go for one of their library wines.

I've ventured into many Thai restaurants, most no-frill, hidden gems, hole-in-the-wall...yet this restaurant raised the bar in sophisticated Thai dining. The venue itself, modern and clean in design - is a beautiful space to dine in. The service was top notch - the servers always attentive, always keeping the bevarages flowing and always offering friendly menu suggestions. As this was... More

The restaurant is hopping and the food is excellent. We are early (5:30 PM) but it was still filled with families and children. Our waitress was able to adjust orders to accommodate allergies and the meal was excellent.

I NEVER do that. It seems a waste, but the food and service was so good. Fabulous renderings of asian (mostly Thai and Cambodian) preparation with the freshest local ingredients. The seabass lettuce cups have to be among the five best appetizers I have had anywhere. Saucing was perfect--light, bright, and lingering. They had a small but solid selection of... More

Wild Ginger serves a variety of Thai dishes and, if you have a large group (we had nine), the waiter will want to serve everything family style and does so, despite attempts by individuals to order for themselves. This caused a problem for me because I am allergic to peanuts. However, the waiter was very accommodating and served everything without... More

What a great place. Lunch prices are reasonable. Great for a business lunch. I had the lamb satay and the duck as an entree. Both were very good. The duck was a fun take on peking duck, with buns and rice.

Went here with our family (6 of us). Service was excellent the waitress very helpful and could not do enough to help us. The food that we had was excellent and the atmosphere of the place was great. There were a large number of people in the restaurant but you did not feel crowded in as the place is so... More
