I was in Canberra for business and wanted something nice for lunch. I saw this restaurant wedged in between two buildings. Quite unassuming looking from the outside. However I had this feeling that I should go in. The tables were crammed together into an area the size of my kitchen but I sat down with my two co workers and... More

we arrived expecting a relaxing Sunday yum cha lunch. There were 12 of us and they put us in a back room. The trolleys of food never made it back there! After the initial 25 minutes of still no food (yet there were trolleys coming in to serve the other 3 tables also in the back room - we were... More

Management response:

Hi there, Sorry to hear about your unpleasant dining experience, both Ginseng Restaurants aims to provide quality food and service. However I believe you may have mistaken one for the other in this review. Ginseng Restaurant Manuka do not offer yumcha whereas Ginseng@Hellenic does. I just wanted to clarify this to save any confusion for yourself and other users of... More

Always a quality food with great service. Duck pancakes, dry fried chilli beef and chicken with veg & shitaki mushrooms (not a dish on the menu but happy to provide) all great. Small and worth the trip.

I took my family to dinner last night at this place. We ordered 5 dishes. The prawns were not fresh, the rice had some wired smell and a beef dish was very very salty. We talked to one of the staff about the food. He asked us to talk to his boss. The boss looked at us with no apologies... More

Thought that we would pop in for a quick Chinese for lunch, but we're so happy that it was so much more than that. The service was so warm and friendly, nothing could be too much trouble. The meal was realy good, Chinese food at its best, appealing to the eye, nose and taste! Do try the crispy duck pancakes,... More

Their meals are of the highest quality and freshness. I have eaten there for dinner and have gotten their lunchbox deals during the week as I work nearby. Each time I was happy with my selection. As there are a lot of restaurant's in Manuka I think it takes a lot to be a stand out place to eat. This... More

We've visited Ginseng several times and always had a good meal. It provides a good selection of Asian and fusion choices and we really like their dumplings and duck pancakes.

Have eaten here a fair bit over many years. Today we came for Mothers Day lunch as a family of four. I like it here for a few reasons including consistently great food, BYO bottled wine, a varied menu, reasonable prices and efficient service. We started with an entree of six duck pancakes ($24.80), and we believe they are the... More

Entrees of seafood and pork/garlic dumplings, squid and Tempura scallops.... Scrumptious, hot and fresh. Mains of Singapore noodles, Mongolian Lamb and Szechuan Chilli Chicken also very tasty and we'll presented. Service very good, don't know how the waiter remembered all of our order without writing it down. Very heartily recommended :-)
