We go here often as we have a few fave dishes (noted below), it's BYO, staff are friendly and attentive + the prices are reasonable for Manuka. During warmer weather it's often pleasant as they open up the front window and there's also outdoor seating...More

Friendly and attentive service. I ordered the Malaysian chicken curry and jasmine tea. My food came quickly and did not disappoint. It came in a sizzling hot pot and the chicken was tender and tasty in a thick mild curry sauce with baby potatoes. I...More

I remember I used to enjoy eating at Ginseng, and often it was very busy, but my last visit was in October 2016 and the restaurant was very quiet, and the food wasn't as good as I remember it to be. Perhaps that's why it's...More

Friendly service and great food. We are locals and go there often to pick up take away or dine in. I took my family from overseas and they loved the seafood and the rock salt squid.

Ginseng is a great place to go to for a quick inexpensive meal of good quality. It does both a la carte and lunch specials

Ginsing used to be one of my favourite chinese reastaurants after Sammy's and Timmy's, especially for the $9 lunch specials which were tasty and quick. Then a few months ago, they went downhill. The meals were rather bland and way too much onion. Today we...More

Located in the heart of Manuka, Ginseng is one of Canberra’s most loved Chinese restaurants.

In a cosy two-storey complex, Ginseng serves up its own distinctive style of traditional Chinese, adding a subtle, contemporary touch to each dish.

The menu is extensive, including all the Chinese favourites you love and some rustic traditional dishes you’ll fall in love with. The Duck pancakes are a must-try, and the stuffed eggplant a treat.
