Something for everyone - Thai, Chinese, Asian, etc. at a reasonable price. Crowded and noisy, though.

Ginger Red is or local go-to spot for family gatherings.The owners are so welcoming. Their sushi is the favorite for many of us while others stick with traditional dishes. Either way, the food is fresh and delicious.

My family loves Chinese food but get tired of going to the same places all the time. Ginger Red provided good food at a decent price with some nice twists on traditional Chinese food.

Overpriced, and not that great. Wanted leftovers put in to go box, they put small amount of the food in the box. And they throw alot that was on the plate away. I not be returning there anymore.

This is one of the typical well run, small, nice menu, good prices restaurants that exist in small markets. They have daily specials that are priced very competitive and the food and service are excellent.

I came back to Ginger Red to give it another chance and I was pleasantly surprised. This time the service was wonderful; our waitress Chrissy was so sweet and attentive. Also, the quality of the food drastically improved. Additionally, the pad thai and orange chicken were really tasty. We will definitely be back, just not on half-priced sushi night as... More

We found this restaurant during a search for top Mechanicsville restaurants. While it wasn't the 'best' Chinese I've ever had; it certainly out performs other Chinese restaurants in the area. The food was hot & fresh and the drinks were okay. The server was very friendly. We will definitely return.

I went to this restaurant on a Wednesday evening and it was busy but there were some empty tables. I asked to be seated and they asked me to wait almost 30 minutes for a table. I went online and made a reservation for half that time. I told the people seating patrons and they insinuated that the reservation didn't... More

Sorry for the frustration you had on Wednesday's sushi night. There were 40+ reservations and waits that evening, and the average wait time between 6pm and 8pm was 30 mins. You might saw few empty tables when you arrived our restaurant that evening, but all of them had been hold for advanced reservation or our guests waiting at the podium.... More

Our church group went out for dinner after a function several weeks ago. I had never been to Ginger but one of the couples said it was good. I have to say I was not impressed. My wife and I ordered our standard, Orange Chicken w/an egg roll. Compared to our favorite Chinese restaurant in Hanover, Zheng, both were average.... More
