Pleasantly surprised.

I don't usually choose to eat at oriental restaurants but this one was really nice. The décor was fancy but the clientele were casually dressed so it was still a fairly relaxed affair. I ordered the scallops with mac and cheese which did not disappoint when it finally arrived - the waitress... read more

This place is amazing. The food is full of flavor and everything was prepared perfectly. There is a great fusion of flavors. The wait staff was very good and helpful with recommendations. The bar is fully stocked and prices are moderate for the quality of the food. We were too full to try any of the deserts. I tried the... More

This restaurant is not for anyone looking for light food. All the dishes we ordered (even the soup-based one) were cooked in heavy, creamy sauces. However, the service is good and the atmosphere is nice if you do enjoy dim settings.

My husband and I just got back from a wonderful Alaskan vacation which culminated with a visit to Ginger in Anchorage. We were blown away by the delicious and original food! We elected to try several appetizers - tapas style. The crispy fried hoisin Duroc pork belly was sensational as was the spicy ahi tuna tower. We tried two soups... More

I have eaten at this restaurant many times in the past and have thought highly of it: however, what happened to me tonight makes me realize I was grossly mistaken. I asked the waiter for details concerning the salmon on the menu. He replied, "it is fresh caught Russian River Red Salmon". When I informed him that that was not... More

Staff was friendly and willing to give a recommendation for what to order. We were visiting, and was much impressed with the food quality. The menu was unique and delicious. It was a great experience. By far the best peach cobbler I have ever eaten.

We came into a half empty restaurant just to find out that they were full (waiting for reservations). I thought it was ridiculous since they had at least 8 tables open, and I was trying to make it to my show in 30 minutes. Regardless, I was seated at the bar with two (!) kids, and they even made me... More

Pacific rim, Asian fusion - call it what you like, but Ginger is a nice surprise in the middle of Anchorage. We were lucky to make reservations for the time we wanted as the place was very busy - packed at 7 pm. Waiter was knowledgeable and helpful in selecting appetizers and main courses as well as drinks to match.... More

One of the best meals we've had in a long time. The food is an eclectic blend of American and Asian tastes, perfectly prepared and delightfully presented. Staff is friendly. Decor contemporary, sound level not too bad. Price moderate considering everything is expensive in Alaska. Highly recommend.

Unbelievably delicious, when we walked in the door we were greeted by the manager and questioned him on what he would recommend. Several of the items that he suggested were items we were considering. Our waiter, Ryan was wonderful! In fact he even tricked this old wine snob on pairing the right wine with our dinner! Hard to believe that... More
