After reading all the glowing revues we decided to go here for dinner. While the service was very good. the food we had simply did not live up to the hype. The sauce overwhelmed the pork roll appetizer. My wife enjoyed her duck entrée, but I had no such luck with the scallops with mac & cheese. There were not... More

It's the infusions. No it's the homemade sour mix. Nah, it's really the best bourbon and all that muddling. Anything is better muddled! I have to say that once I tasted Ginger's Old Fashioned, I've tried it 5 other places in Anchorage, only to come back to Ginger's where it is served with style and tastiness. Oh, and did I... More

My wife and I went here for our anniversary. We have been wanting to try this restaurant out for awhile. This place did not disappoint. The cocktail were amazing and our meals were cooked perfectly! The service was extremely good. I highly recommend this restaurant. I also recommend reservations because when we went it was busy.

We had dinner in Ginger. We had swordfish, which was excellent. The duck was also very good. The dessert was average. Service was very good. However the price is relatively high.

I gave another chance at Ginger. This was my third visit here over the years. The food is above average, the presentation is excellent, but the prices are quite high for what is received. I went in for lunch this time and ordered a tofu and shiitake kebab. Flavor was very good and presentation was wonderful. But I would have... More

Came up to Anchorage for a couple days just to get away. Decided to it a new to us Thai restaurant. So glad we did. Food was excellent. We'll definitely be back.

We were in Anchorage for a couple of nights after traveling around from Fairbanks and Talkeetna for a week. Consequently we were in need of something to tickle our taste buds. Ginger is in a street a couple of blocks from the Historic Anchorage Hotel where we stayed. We did not book but walked straight in after a nice pre-dinner... More

The two items we had from their menu were fantastic. We had the Panang beef curry and the Mee Krob. The beef was in a very rich and thick curry sauce with beef slices, bean sprouts and other thinly sliced vegetables. It was so flavorful and spicy that it makes my mouth water just thinking about it. The Mee Krob... More

I understand, this is a very popular place and indeed it was crowded the night we visited.. But here are the things I absolutely hated: 1. Bathroom- pretty dirty, considering its an upscale restaurant 2. Server/ Waiter forgot the 2 ITEMS we ordered and came back twice to ask us what we ordered.. really ? Its only 2 entrees and... More

We were there for a late lunch so were only able to order from the bar menu. However, the service was good and everything we ordered was very tasty.
