“Great food and value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

When visiting Sevenoaks for the weekend went to a number of local restaurants including Ginseng, El Matador and Wagamama, and Ginseng was the best hands down. The service was friendly and prompt, the food was delicious and plentiful and the value was good. Each dish had a distinct flavour like it should, the meat in each was well cooked and overall we all left very satisfied.

“Food ok wine good price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

Sorry to say that this was just another cheap and cheerful Chinese restaurant. Similar to an eat all you can buffet. Food was ok and the wine is very reasonably priced. Service of food to table was very slow. This I think is due to the fact that it is also a popular take away. This means that a lot of food is being cooked for the take away side and the restaurant plays second fiddle!
There are some interesting different regional items on the list that are worth trying.

“Their definition of child may not be the same as yours!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014

I've given 3 stars, because that's what I believe the food is worth.

However, I just wanted to make people with children aware that the set price meal on Sundays which Ginseng is currently offering quotes an Adult price, Child price and an Under 0.9m price (free).

When the bill came, we queried why our 12 year old had been charged as an adult and were told that the child price only applied to "little ones". We asked what that meant and they said under 4 foot (ie. an average 7 year old). Knowing this, may affect how you order for older children!
