Chinese food used to be THE take away, but over the last few years it seems to be difficult to find some good tucker. We decided to try Ginseng last week and it was only acceptable. We had Mongolian beef, Ginger prawns and Scallops and Honey prawns, everything was fresh and well cooked, the seafood wasn't over cooked but the... More

I was pleasantly surprised to find this restaurant consistently delivers scrumptious food each and every time i have visited. It is always so tasty, i am tempted to lick my plate!

Ginseng food is always well prepared and tasty. One of the few local restaurants serving duck in several versions. Service is timely and friendly and the restaurant even has tablecloths and a carpet, so harks back to the days of proper restaurant dining. Popular, but they can usually find us a table.

I have dined at Ginseng many times over the years and have always had a great experience. The menu is creative and interesting with some beautiful seafood dishes. The wasabi king prawns are fantastic and Stuffed Mushrooms cup with tiger king prawns are so tasty. I also love the Wasabi Eye Fillet. David the owner runs a great restaurant and... More

We had a girls night out and decided to go to Ginseng Chinese Restaurant in Frankston. It is always nice food, very well presented and well priced. The service was good but the decor could do with an update and a good clean. Overall a great place to eat.

I'm not from Frankston and due to a family need I found myself needing to have dinner somewhere with my Aunty. I read the reviews on the Ginseng and thought "why not". It was a great decision and after telling the waiter we had limited time to eat, he quickly and cleverly arranged duck with mango and beef with ginger... More
