Consistently great food and service, Ginger Red is a must for anyone in the Mechanicsville area. Not your average Chinese restaurant, Ginger Red offers Chinese, Thai and Vietnamese dishes. Weekly specials (half price sushi, appetizers, etc) and a unique buffet that offers small plates brought to your table versus you going to a buffet station. Orange chicken, happy family, triple delight and Ginger Red fried rice are all excellent choices. The crab rangoon, Thai lettuce wraps and spring rolls are excellent. The hot & sour soup is the best I've had (sorry Chen's). Staff seems to turnover frequently and I'm not sure why but everything else is consistent and excellent. I'm not a drinker, but there seems to be an extensive beer selection as well as drink specials.
