It was one of the best service I have ever received in the restaurant. The girl who served us was very friendly and nice. I would definitely go back there. The food was amazing!

“Superb food at Gan Bei”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

The meal was actually at Gan Bei's restaurant at Jurmala on the coast a few kilometres north of Riga but on checking the Riga branch in the Galerija Centrs Shopping Centre it was found that the same menu was on offer. What a great experience! The Gan Bei branch in Jurmala (Majori) is on the main shopping and restaurant (pedestrianised) street Jomas Iela. This is staffed by 10, yes ten, chefs in the kitchen - we asked! This meal comprised 8 Californian maki rolls and mixed fruit strudel on the writer's part and both were the best examples of sushi and strudel ever experienced. The view of the other serving of chicken pasta parcels, perogi style, and chocolate gateau was equally favourable. The restaurant was the busiest in the resort and it was easy to see why. The food and service were excellent. The restaurant was very attractive and this "oriental food" experience was superb.

“The Best Sushi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

I am a sushi lover. GanBei exceeded all my expectations. Truly delicious with a high quality products. The chef doesn't use any vinegar with the rice which was a big plus for the taste.

“Average place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

After working day it was quite full, we managed to get a table. As it was really warm weather then the room was very hot, not very comfortable. It is ok if you sit outside and it is your own choice, but not so nice indoors.

The menu was really big, I didn´t even manage to read it all through as I found smth to eat already before.

The Tom Kha soup I took was good, taste was pretty authentic, but the fried prawns were nothing special, pretty tasteless.

The waiter didn´t speak very good English, but as my companions spoke Russian, we managed to understand eachother.

As overall, quite average place, Riga has better options.

“Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2013

But sometimes food is not hot. We saw many dishes with food on the counter and it took a while for people to get their food including us. Probably if we had gotten the food when it first came out, it would have been hot.
