We had not been to Ginger and Chili for awhile so decided to go for dinner last night as we have previously had very good meals here. It was not busy last night when we went for dinner, there were only 2 tables occupied – l being a large table at the back of the restaurant. This is a small restaurant and it is nothing fancy so the ambiance is very basic but it is nice and clean. I’m more interested in the food than decor. Last night’s dinner was not as good as I remember from previous experiences here.
The service was very good. The waitress was prompt, refilled my husband’s water glass and asked how dinner was. We ordered the szechuan green beans and they were delicious. They were crisp and nice and spicy with garlic. General Tso’s chicken had way too much batter and the chicken pieces seemed to be pretty small for the most part. We have ordered this dish here before and the ratio of chicken to batter was much better and the chicken was moister. We also ordered prawns with black bean sauce and while it was tasty the dish was $15.95 and there were only about 12 very small prawns. The plate was heaped with green peppers and onions and you really had to search for the prawns. We finished off with mango flower which is basically mango ice cream in the shape of a flower. The ice cream was very bland. Altogether dinner was $52.00 for 3 dishes, rice and ice cream. It’s not badly priced but the food was disappointing compared to what we’ve had previously.
I would give it another try and hope that last night was just an off night.
