You can tell the food is reasonably authentic (at least the Chinese cuisine) by the large number of local Chinese in the restaurant. Portion is quite generous, including the meat dishes and quality is okay, given that it is really difficult to find top notch Chinese food in the area.

I love this place - vegetarian Vietnamese spring rolls, scallion pancakes, moo shu, good sushi... It's a comfortable place to sit with friends, service is competent.

The food was very good with many vegetarian and gluten free options. The waiter once aware that three at the table were gluten free would point out what was was ok for to eat or not. The peanut sauce was not gluten free he let us know. There is gluten free soy sauce available. There is Chinese or Japanese options... More

A few years ago this was a fine restaurant. Then it changed hands and it has been going down hill ever since. Menu selections are fewer and portions are smaller but prices are higher. There is a new chef every few weeks and the results are rarely good. Many items are simply defrosted, microwaved, and sloshed with a packaged sauce... More

I wrote a review a year ago of this same place and found it very good, but a bit overpriced. I returned a week ago and found it had slipped a bit. It was still overpriced, but the hot and sour soup was tepid, and the food was just so-so...One of the dishes had very little flavor. I'll try it... More

We like the authentic Chinese menu. The double cooked pork and water boiled beef are the must. In fact the two items were suggested by the waiter on our first visit. We like it a lot so we keep going back for more. We have been visiting this place quite often although it is 90 minutes drive for us. When... More

We like this place and visited again. Without a reservation on a Saturday night at about 7:00 we were seated after about a 8-10 minute wait. Service was pleasant as it always is here. For this visit we had what we often have Moo Shu Pork and chicken with broccoli. We also had a vegetable spring roll. The spring roll... More

When we want excellent Chinese food we take the hour drive to get to Ginger Garden. They don't over do it with breading- fried dishes are actually delicately fried. The pan fried vegetable dumplings are my favorite. Chicken dishes are made with good quality chicken not grisly stuff. Very big portions and very polite staff. We always have a great... More

Had dinner here on a Saturday evening and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of our meal. We shared sushi to start, which was fresh and tasty. Then we split a Chinese veggie entree, which was nicely done and served hot.

We are very picky with Chinese food, especially being from NY. Must say that we were impressed with the restaurant. First off the waiter was great. Always filling the tea and water cups. Very professional and helpful without being overbearing. We got the PuPu platter which was great. I got the General Tso chicken which was absolutely great. White meat,... More
