“Great Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

Thane Garth the chef & Seth Garth the manager/server are a great brother team.
We enjoyed a fantastic meal in an intimate clean comfortable atmosphere.
Seth was one of the best waiters that we have ever had. He helped us both decide what we would enjoy and the wine to pair with it.
I had the crab cakes (mmmmm good), to start and my husband had the Caesar salad (homemade dressing). I agree with other reviews that the menu is limited but the food that you get you will enjoy immensely & its just the right amount. To quote my husband "my Lamb Shank rocked" so I know he really liked his meal & I had the chicken and it was melt in your mouth fantastic.
I ordered the creme brulee for dessert and a specialty coffee to end what was one of the best meals that I have paid for in a long time.
If your heading to the Niagara on the Lake for any reason I would definitely make a reservation for a wonderful meal at the Ginger Restaurant.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

All fresh crab.....melts in your mouth! Upscale Thai food with a few unusual choices such as Lamb Shank & Beef Ribs.

“Nice restaurant!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

We like Ginger. We live in town and Ginger is a nice place to come. Off the main road in town, and the over priced ( bad) restaurants. As someone said before the crab cakes are very tasty! We tried different dishes on the menu and they are all very nice presented and tasty. The service is super polite and caring.
Since we live here we will go back one of these days for sure and recommend this restaurant to anybody that wants a nice dinner with a lovely glass of local wine for a 'normal' price.
