Every effort was made to help understand the menu, and assistance with ordering was much appreciated. Dishes were brought at the right time, with descriptions. Plates... More

Order the seven flavor beef, but not the pad thai noodles. Go with the recommended dishes. Nice wine selection, with bottles from about $30 to well into the hundreds.

Unique, flavorful food. Sat at the bar with no wait. Service was great. Loved the food choices. The selection, portions and quality are tremendous. The service was very friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Highly recommend. Incredible wine list

Watermelon salad was recommended by our waiter but it was not very flavourful. Beef curry was quite good. Sea bass was disappointing and expensive. Drip coffee only.

Wild Ginger has an interesting menu from traditional Thai to fusion type cuisine. Ordering several tapas sized servings to share provide a nice way to sample Wild Ginger's clean and interesting tastes. Service was excellent.

One of our group members who wanted Thai for dinner found this place. The hostess was very accommodating and we all enjoyed our meal. Although I didn't have any that night, they have a VERY extensive and impressive wine list.
