OK, we ate here, and THEN I read the reviews and completely agree Ginger is a little gem. Slightly off the beaten Queen St path and well worth the short drive or bike ride, even a walk perhaps. Very tasty and extraordinary food with short but good menu that will please almost any taste. Our waiter was very friendly, and... More

Amazing food. Staff and amotsphere make you enjoy dinner and feel very relaxed and cared for. Taste buds will explode. Can't wait to go back. I see why the locals all eat here.

The service and cuisine are really top drawer. Better than many other so called 5 star places i have frequented in the Niagara area. The Asian fusion cuisine is well portioned, tasty and with layers of subtle complexity. We had the salmon and the crispy chicken. Both delicious and well accompanied. We had a minor issue with the dinner and... More

Quaint little restaurant off the beaten path in NOTL. Just lovely. Staff is so friendly. The food was outstanding. Wines were reasonably priced. Can't go wrong here!

Ginger is an Asian Fusion restaurant adjacent to the Orchid Inn (where we stay whenever in NOTL). Ginger is fully wheelchair accessible including the washroom. The 1st night I had the Spring Rolls & Thai Coconut Chicken Curry (my fav) & my husband had the Soup of the day & the Strip Loin with Chinese Peppercorn Sauce which he reported... More

I've written a few excellent dinner reviews for "Ginger" in the past, because the food was awesome. So, we were really looking forward to our dinner there on our most recent visit to NOTL. Unfortunately and disappointingly . . . it was NOT a good experience. Why? 1. There wasn't anything on the menu that sounded interesting. And where on... More

We had a pleasant meal here, but the food was really lacking. The spring roll skins were very hard. The mushroom-stuffed cabbage rolls were very soggy. My curry was very tasty, but the broccoli and bokchoy were so overcooked that they were literally dissolving in the sauce. They had a nice, well-priced wine list, and the service was very good....

Always a pleasure to have dinner at Ginger while visiting Niagara-on-the-Lake. Consistently great food & service. The appetizer featuring crab cakes was especially scrumptious. The coconut curry chicken was delicious. My dining companion had the supreme of chicken with rice and seasonal vegetables, prepared to perfection. We finished with crime brûlée & warm chocolate brownie, both good choices. Impeccable service... More

After several visits, the food, service, and atmosphere just seem better than the last time. This family business provides great Asian food. The two brothers and mother all add to the warm of this place. Can't wait to go back next year!
