“Everything you want from a good local place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

The food was tasty! I loved every dish I tried.
Staff were overly friendly, chatting with you when they are not busy, but even if they were they found time to made you feel welcomed, cozy and cared for!
The selection was diverse, dishes came on time even on busy nights. It was funny they had wine on the menu, considering Thailand doesn't have wine culture. I think that's why the glasses were big, and filled to the top! There was no need for a second glass!
Overall, I loved it and found many reasons to come back a few times after the first visit!

“Awesome Thai curry”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I visited Ging Restaurant on our first night in Karon. We didn't arrive there until quite late in the evening and went searching for a restaurant which still served food. It was quite clear that the restaurant staff were about to close (at around 22:40 hours) but welcomed us anyway. We both ordered Thai green curry and it was the best one we've had since. The portions are huge and it's very cheap. I think the curry was about 150 Baht each (=£ 2.50) so great value for money!!
The restaurant doesn't look like anything special but don't be put off or you'll regret it!!
