Great location right next to the Shoreview Country Inn so super convenient for dinner. Very, very large menu of choices. Our orders were pretty tastless and considerably greasy. price seemed high for the location out in the middle of nowhere Minnesota. Atmosphere was average. Services was very attentive.

Buffet was very good. A lot of choices and very reasonably priced. We like it a lot because it is in our neighborhood. Friendly staff. Never feel rushed.

My husband and I stopped in for a quick lunch. The buffet was small, but it had a little bit of everything and it was very tasty! We loved it! It was only $8.25 without a drink. The atmosphere was great! The servers were efficient.

I always ordered everything to go. Egg rolls were large, portions were decent sized. They were quick with my order. Some food was good, some was too salty. Seemed to be $2-3 more than other Chinese restaurants in the area.

There really is nothing special to separate Red Ginger from any other Chinese restaurant. There is a lunch buffet and you can order from the full menu. I will state that the food is fresh and does not taste like it has been sitting in a warmer.

We've been eating at Red Ginger for years, and it is wonderful! We love the cream cheese puffs, shrimp lo mein, broccoli beef, pad thai, and much more. They deliver, but are usually too busy to deliver during dinner, so be ready to go pick it up.

Incredible service, easy location but somewhat hidden if you did not know where to find this place. The atmosphere is authentic and clean. You can choose your own live lobster or pull from the menu. The Soft Shell Crab appetizer is a must. Lunch buffet has many choices. I highly recommend this Bistro.

This is the best Asian food in the Twin Cities. I've been too many different restaurants with my travel, but the freshness of the sea food, the taste, the usually very quick service, is tough to beat.

Thank Tam C
