We have been coming here since it opened...it never disappoints with its wide array of sushi and other Asian dishes. The service is always attentive and while it can get crowded, it is worth the wait. You will not be disappointed.

Sweet Ginger is our go-to restaurant with people who may not like sushi, but want tasty Asian food. Both the salmon yellow curry and the Shanghai Night (spicy) noodles are a great alternative if you don't want sushi. My husband always orders the fresh scallop as sashimi when it's available. Delicious rolls and service is fast. Call ahead for a... More

You know you want Asian food, but cannot decide whether to have Thai, Chinese, or Japanese, then Sweet Ginger is the place for you since they offer some of each type of Asian cuisine, and it is all pretty good.

The wonton soup at Sweet Ginger is my go to when I am feeling a cold coming on. It 's the best. I also love the lamb curry dish that was created by the chef. Very tender meat and a wonderful curry taste. The service is always excellent. You may have to wait for a table but once you are... More

My friend of junior high took me to the restaurant. It was a Friday night and this place was packed. The parking was also full. We were lucky to get a table for 5 of us in a short amount of time. We pretty much ordered Benton boxes and the food came out ok. What I do not like is... More

It was fun to watch each dish come out of the kitchen, beautifully prepared and tasty. My little grandson enjoyed watching them make sushi and loved the "connected" chopstick Is they gave... More

We have dined here many times over the years and always been totally satisfied with every aspect. The quality of the fish is outstanding and the preparation of sushi and cooked entrees is excellent. Service is superb, fast and friendly.

I keep coming back to this place because of its varied menu, friendly service, and consistently tasty dishes. It gets packed at times, so book ahead especially on weekend nights. Prices are very reasonable for what you get.
