My husband and I had dinner here but the food are horrible. We ordered the WOW! Wings for appetizer, the wings are tolerable, we had the Soy Garlic and the Spicy flavors, they are ok but much rather eat it at Bonchon in Allston/Brighton. For sushi, we had an order of Double Spicy Salmon roll. It is not something fresh... More

I went to the ginger exchange several times and they were never letting me down. The noodle soup, sushi, dumplings and everything I had is really tasty. For cold days I can recommend the ginger tea.

Great prices and a ton of options at this delicious Asian fusion restaurant. They give you a large amount of food so you won't leave hungry and it's all delicious. Definitely recommend.

I recently went to Ginger Exchange for the first time with some coworkers since it is near my office. We each ordered the lunch special, and I got the 2 sushi rolls, which came with a soup/salad and 2 decent-sized rolls. For under $15, I got a large lunch and some to take home! The place was dead, which was... More

As tourists we picked this restaurant after browsing the other local options and boy did we make the right choice. It was fantastic. The interior isnt anything special but the food is. It was full from 7pm onwards with locals. There were plenty of food options from sushi, freshly made speciality rolls, rice and noodle dishes. There were also other... More

I've been going to Ginger Exchange for over a year as my "worked too late, too tired to function to make dinner, it's Friday and I need a martini & nigiri--stat!" old faithful. The restaurant is less busy than other Inman Sq options, which I greatly appreciate when I'm too hungry/tired to deal with waiting for a table elsewhere. The... More

We stumbled upon this place just looking for a quick lunch, and we will certainly be back. The menu had tons of options, everything was fresh and the portions were large (a few doggy bags were brought home). To top it all off, it was cheap! I think my huge plate of pad thai was like $11, you just cant... More
