Wild Ginger is a nice Asian fusion restaurant which appears to have designed their atmosphere around people who are afraid to pick up their bowl of Miso soup and drink it as one would in Japan, or elsewhere in Asia. One must ask for chopsticks with a meal as realistically, for many Americans, eating with chopsticks can be awkward and messy. All of that to say, there are some items on Wild Ginger's menu that are served properly and there are some items on the menu that are simply (and I think intentionally) designed for the average American who is looking to stretch themselves culturally a little bit, but not too far. I say, life is short! ...and while I prefer to eat my Asian dishes with chopsticks, YOU go ahead and pick up that spoon or fork to eat that meal that you're paying for with your hard-earned money. Don't let that culture snob across the table from you keep you from enjoying your meal.

Our hibachi experience at Wild Ginger was an entertaining and delicious experience. We're used to going to hibachi in our home town and weren't sure what to expect. What we found was that it was pretty similar yet different in some ways. The food was expertly cooked and the show was fun. The sushi prices looked a bit high but we didn't order any so couldn't compare.

Me and a friend had a quick business dinner there last week. Very good sushi, also try the Spider Crab dish.

The edamame was a bit undercooed and the tempura shrimps so-so. But the sushi (and the relevant cost for all we ate) was actually great value.

Give it a shot, won't disappoint.

We are not Sushi eaters but found that the other food items were quite good. The portions were nice size - the sweet, sour Pork was very good and for $13.00 - we could not ask for more. The duck dish was also good with the vegetables but seemed more like a 6 than the 2 I requested. We had plenty of left overs to take home and without asking they give us extra brown rice. Their take home containers were even Microwave safe as opposed to leaky stirofoam boxes. We'll go back to try the Habachi.

I went to this restaurant for birthday dinner. Restaurant seating was very crowded and noisy. Food was not average in quality, I have had fresher, better tasting Thai food elsewhere. Disappointing experience for such an expensive restaurant.
