Great healthy food

Had a great meal with sister and niece 12/30/15 during a busy time. We called that afternoon and were able to get a table after yoga a few doors down at Yoga for the Peaceful. I am vegetarian and was happy with my noodle dish as were the rest of my family. Healthy, quality, friendly. A must!!

What can you say about the world's greatest ginger martini! !! Then add the Asian fusion food. Oh my gosh. We love the Butte. 360 degrees of Montain view in a valley. In summer (July ) wildflowers capital of the world. And the mountain biking. You take the chairlift up with your bike or you can just hike down. Unbelievable... More

The 4 of us stopped in at the Ginger Café between ski runs and had a great little lunch. 1 vegan ,1 vegetarian in our group and there were options for all. The restaurant seems to be a mix of Thai and Indian food which sort of threw me off but it works as they do both well. I had... More

Went to dinner with friends after reading the reviews. We went fairly early on a Wed. Cozy little place and we had a great waitress - Sophie - who was very knowledgeable about the menu and ingredients. We started with the smoked salmon lavosh that was pretty amazing and also shared the Thai beef salad. The lamb korma was tasty... More

If I am remembering correctly I had a great martini here many years ago and enjoyed some post snow day food.

Food was just so-so. Had the calamari which we like, but Tom Yum Soup was bland...need some serious spices. Green Curry was also just ok, not great. Thai ice tea also did not have strong flavor. Service was good though, server was attentive. Price was decent.

We've been here many times and the food never disappoints us. However, you feel like a nerd in high school because the wait staff seems to have their own clique going on with patrons from the area. Their service has never been better than average and you almost feel like you're interrupting them. The place is VERY small and after... More

I went last year with my sons, and fell in love with this place. I knew that when my husband and I were in Crested Butte this fall - this was to be our first place to have dinner. They have many gluten free and vegetarian slections. The food is outstanding!!! This place has the reputation for awesome food, so... More
