The prices far exceed the quality. Too noisy and a small space. Would not take business associates there. Trendy but ultimately not what I was looking for

Food was very good, service was very good, wine/beer selection was very good. Dessert menu was so good I took another one home in a box. Pricey but worth the money.

I agree with an earlier review that this is "an ok place." I think the dishes are good as far as creativity, flavor and presentation. However, being Asian, I expect a lot more authenticity in terms of ingredients. That said, I really appreciated the curry dish. It's really good, but that's all I can remember, apart from the scallops mac... More

My husband and I ate at Ginger on October 29 while in anchorage for business. The menu was interesting and the flavors of the dishes themselves lived up to the descriptions. Our waiter, Kevin, was attentive and knowledgeable enough to answer our questions about the dishes. The drinks were tasty and new. We had the pork belly, the oyster shooters... More

After a day at the Alaska Museum and the Zoo, we stopped by Ginger without a reservation. Because of the early hour, they were able to seat us. The great Tuna Tower built up our expectations - the best of all I’ve had. I wasn’t too excited by my husband’s choice of Lettuce Wraps. Wraps are wraps, right? Well I... More

The atmosphere was very nice as was the staff. The food however was over priced and the quantities were small. I ordered the steak frites and the steak was cold when brought to the table. Regardless this entree was not worth the $29 dollar price.

So the mac and cheese is good - not life changing - but probably worth ordering if you are looking to splurge on calories. Good ambience. Good service. You'll be pleased if you choose to have dinner here.

I went with a group of 17 for dinner and the fellow that provided us with service was very attentive and helpful. I had the Mee Krob and it was tasty and a good serving size. I don't remember what others ate, but several people that sat within hearing range mentioned that their entree was very salty - I didn't... More

The atmosphere was ambient and modern. They waiter was very helpful and willing to give advice if needed. The wine list was extensive. I will say the food is worth the cost so be prepared for your taste buds to have you indulging in more than you had planned. The seating does not permit you to be alone so expect... More
