Excellent Thai food. Great service.

I came here for a late lunch and my server was very knowledgable and helpful while I made my choices. I decided on the Panang Beef Curry and the White Coconut Creme hot tea. It was heaven! The curry was delicious and so filling. The tea was sweet and comforting. I had a great time and would totally... read more

I've never had a bad meal at Ginger and I've been eating there since it's opened. If the restaurant side is full, sit in the bar and ask for the restaurant menu. Or go for appetizers and drinks. Fantastic selection of cocktails and a great wine list.

I have been looking forward to trying Ginger for a long time. The first thing I noticed was that the seats needed to be cleaned. I ordered the pork egg rolls and mee krob. The egg rolls were almost black and very greasy. I asked our server if they were always cooked that way and she said yes. However, another... More

My wife and I had dinner here about five times over the last year. Service and atmosphere has always been very good. The dinners have usually been very good. But tonights dinner entrees were far from good. My wife had the thai shrimp noodle soup as she always does (she loves it). Tonight it had a strong taste of being... More

First time at Ginger and it was a great time! I tried a couple of new things, the Ahi Tuna and the Banana Lemongrass soup. They were both fantastic! I never thought the soup would be that great, but it's amazing!

I don't tend to migrate towards high end restaurants as I try to live within my means. I knew going in that Gingers would be at the higher end of what I am normally comfortable with but I planned accordingly. Their menu offered many different options and it was difficult to narrow down the choices and many of the selections... More

I had heard about this place from other travelers and since it was located within walking distance from our hotel my husband and I decided to give it a try. We had just arrived from the east coast/NY so it was around 9:30 pm. We usually do not have dinner this late so opted to order salads and appetizers. We... More

The spring rolls were exquisite. The two sauces (hot and sweet and a mint sauce) were excellent. My daughter and I split the Panama beef curry substitute tofu. Just wow. The chef has cooked before. It was excellent. Wonderful tastes, like a party in your mouth. The derive was impeccable. Water constant. The ginger soda is a must try.
