Took my 82 year old dad to dinner. We wanted to try something new and fun. And thats what we got. The soup was wonderful tasting (could have been a little hotter temp wise). Our noodles looked as good as they tasted.

The menu looked good, the owner was in house but everything was poor...service from the owner re:gluten free should have told us to "get up and go"..unfortunately we stayed............! Perhaps it was a bad night but everything we ate tasted like it had come from a "jar" no fresh flavours at all..our young server did her best....why isn't the owner... More

While Wild Ginger is tiny (there's only seating for 15 or so customers), the food is a great melting pot of Asian cuisine and the meal we had there was really outstanding. The beef salad was incredibly fresh and had exactly the right balance of flavours while the stir-fried salt and pepper squid was nicely spicy and incredibly moreish. We... More

We go to Cambria at least three times per year, but we'd never eaten at the Wild Ginger Cafe. We've passed it several times, but had never received any recommendations about the place. So as we began to walk past it today, we stopped, read the menu & decided to try it. Boy are we glad we did! My husband... More

We had the caramelised prawns and a tom kha soup and topped it off with some pomegranate sorbet, all of which were delicious with intricate flavours. Fabulous.

We just happened to stop in Cambria on the way back from Hurst Castle and decided to try this restaurant. The restaurant is small, intimate and casual and the menu concentrates on Pan-Asian and Pacific Rim cuisine. The food was excellent as was the service. When we go to Hurst Castle again, I would definitely include a trip back to... More

Small but intimate, caring decor and wonderful food. Should be the number one in Cambria.

During a three day visit to Cambria we ate dinner here twice! The first time we had one of the specials and one item from the regular menu. There were so many more things we wanted to try we came back the next night. We enjoyed everything we tried. Soups, curry, pork, shrimp, it was all delicious. Fun, cozy setting... More
