I have visited the Ginger Cafe here and the one in Gilroy. I always have a great experience, but this time was different and confusing.
I always order the Half Peking Duck for myself, which is amazing. But this visit I was with my boyfriend and we decided to order the whole Peking Duck to share instead.
We figured since we ordered twice the amount of meat, we’d get twice the amount of pancakes and sauce - we were wrong. And we had to pay extra to get enough sauce and pancakes to eat the entire bird. It is actually cheaper to order two entrees of Half Peking Duck. This was the first disappointing thing this evening.
To drink we both ordered Strawberry Lemonade, which we order here all the time - and not only did we get our appetizer before our lemonade, but this time there was no refill?! We always get free refills when we go to Ginger Cafe so this was weird. I’d be happy to just drink water for the rest of the meal, but it tastes so strongly of chlorine that it is undrinkable.
But the food was amazing as always, and the Soft Crab Spring Rolls are amazing appetizer or just a small lunch. So I give my 4/5, pulling one point for inconsistency on the free refill and lack of sides for the Peking Duck.
Experience from previous visits:
The Lamb Chops has no sides, so you better order some extra veggies if you plan on ordering it. The Orange Chicken also lacks of veggies, but is very good, especially with fried rice.
