To Ginseng Restaurant with my family members while a stay in Canberra, Australia. We ordered dishes of duck, beef and squid. All food are delicious and highly recommended. Customer services are very warm and I would try again!

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 :-)

We sat outside and shared 4 dishes and all were tasty and service fantastic. Prices very reasonable and we ate about 6pm before the rush. In busy times you may need to book

I didn't find the food great - it was OK. I had the almond shrimp which was good and the crab/corn soup which was not. We sat outside on the broad sidewalk and enjoyed the weather. Service was pretty apathetic. But the prices were reasonable so you should be fine if you don't have unreasonable expectations.
