My partner and I stumbled upon Red Ginger, and I'm so happy we did. On the island there are a lot of places that serve the same food, and have enormous 30 page menus, which mean that nowhere is special or specialises in one type of cuisine.

It is a relaxed setting with a great selection on the menu. Our teenagers had the burgers, I had the curry lamb and my wife had the pork loin.... More

This is the first time I respond to a review (out of more than three hundred in the last few years) and for a reason. YOU ARE WRONG. I was not drunk. My staff and I went out of our way to please you, but no sir, everything we did you found fault with. One problem after another. You clearly,... More

This is a must do every time I'm in Samet. Food is great and the "crazy Canadian " Roger is worth a visit only him.
