There's more seating outside on the patio than there is inside the cute little café. This would be a good place to eat outside with your dog. The food is presented beautifully and smelled fantastic. My sister and I ordered from the regular menu and the daily special menu. The dishes did not disappoint. Fresh and tasty, but I did... More

Owner and food designer Deborah and chef Alfredo deliver beauty to eye and palate and with a consistency that has turned us into regulars. Enchanting from the street, the enchantment deepens as you enter the intimate space and catch exotic aromas and read the board of daily specials. There are stalwart menu items that are hard to avoid, but then... More

Although I had been given the names of several restaurants by friends who have spent time in Cambria, this was not one of them and I can only think that they hadn't discovered it yet. The Asian fusion menu had my mouth watering before I ate. There was a delicious vegetarian butternut squash soup that was heavenly, and I had... More

Teensy tiny interior, but has some patio seating too. This restaurant features innovative, fresh, elegant Thai type ethno-mix foods that are served with flair. I love it.

Wow. This tiny restaurant only seats maybe 20 people at a time. We felt so lucky to squeeze in at about 9pm. A couple came in right after us and was turned away. We had one of the best meals we've ever had. The menu is ecclectic, Asian-fusion, local (San Luis Obispo farmers' market.) There are many gluten-free choices. We... More

We visited at lunchtime and it was not busy. Dog friendly establishment and we sat outside on a lovely patio. Everything was absolutely delicious, fresh, and flavorful. We started with a squash coconut soup that was light and satisfying. Chosen entrees were pork with noodles and shrimp yellow curry. Both were good sized servings accompanied with a variety of fresh,... More

Delicious Singapore cuisine with a twist and cooked to order. We loved the food . It was quiet during our stay so guess that's why it was just us!

Things like yellow carrots, artichokes, etc appeared in the dishes. The pad thai was different than I've ever had (in the US). The Vietnamese BBQ pork was excellent. A bit pricey, but that seems to be the deal in Cambria.

Enjoyed our meal at Wild Ginger, great flavors. (Would have given 5 star if they used local seafood and meats, which given prices and availability of those products would seem to be reasonable.) In photo is barbecued pork with noodles dish and sweet and sour tofu, both delicious.

One of the things I love about Cambria is that for such a small town, there is no shortage of fine dining experiences. My husband and I stopped in for dinner at Wild Ginger unexpectedly tonight, we'd never been before, but the specials looked good and we sure weren't disappointed. We both ordered the Tom Kha Kai soup, (spicy with... More
