Everything was perfectly cooked. We started with the crab cakes and carrot ginger coconut soup for appetizers. For our main, we had the lamb shank and trout. They were well seasoned and the combination of vegetables and ponzu crusted potato was just a perfect fusion...of Asian fare with North American cuisine.More

I am gluten sensitive so Thai is a go to for me and never had a problem until I met Seth our waiter. From the start he wanted to argue with me instead of us feeling welcomed. When I tried to ask if their soya...sauce is gluten free, he rudely interrupted me and said no. When I asked " could the kitchen have it in the future he said " no, its too expensive. It is not. He then said that fish sauce has gluten when I wanted to order the Thai salad. It does not. I ended up with a piece of salmon with aioli sauce. Definitely not Thai.More

We went on a very quiet Wed night, and were greeted very warmly. Dining room is small and comfortable, easy for conversation. Menu is sort-of Asian and sort-of French with overlaps, but very well prepared and presented. Chef knows what he's doing! Probably not a...good place to take kids though unless they are mini-gourmands.More

Located within the Orchid Inn, this is a small restaurnat with a personal touch and an amibiance conducive to conversaton. Menu offers a delight to the palate with a fusion of Asian culinary delights, opted for egg rolls (light), lamb shank (oh so tender) and...chicken with plum sauce bok choy. Boundary on the Breaks pino nice complement-offers glass, half liger, bottle. This restaurant has the feel of a smal French white cloth tabled restaurant with an Asian twist. High recommend as a non-tourist spot.More

This had to be the best surprise for my wife and i. I found them using Google. Their menu convinced me to give them a try. My best choice ever. Thai squash soup was amazing. So many flavours each adding to the whole. Then a...lamb shank - so tender. And tempura fish for my wife. They have accommodations too under the Orchid Inn. I'll be back for both.More

Food and service outstanding! Such a nice evening. Crab cakes, short ribs, gazpacho. It was all so good. Too bad it it closed Mondays & Tuesdays or we would have gone again!

My husband and I had a wonderful dinner at Ginger Restaurant. The owner welcomed us at the entrance and checked on us throughout our dinner. She is a lovely person, warm and hospitable. As it was still rather quiet, and early in the evening, we...had the time to have a lovely chat with her. We had crab cakes and spring rolls to start, followed by salmon and lentil curry as entrées. All were superb! The flavours of the food and presentation, on the plate, were awesome, thanks to the outstanding effort of the kitchen staff! This was not our first time, and it will not be our last time, dining at Ginger Restaurant. The food is always superb, the service is always excellent, and they do not gauge you as so many other N-O-T-L establishments do! Rose & Dave, Niagara residents.More

This is an excellent restaurant that fortunately does not charge top tier prices. Two of us had Thai curry another grilled salmon; the last member had vegetarian curry. All very good! Service was first rate with helpful suggestions for a wine by the glass choice.

Rarely does even the best restaurant excel in every category : service, food, pricing and comfort. Ginger does. Our server Seth was professional, attentive and friendly. The lamb shank was lightly spiced, generous and superbly cooked. It came with a side ofvegetables and panko crusted...mashed potatoes. My wife and I shared spring rolls which were also excellent and surprisingly light. She had the Thai curry coconut soup also excellent, Proces were very reasonable for this quality and generous portions. The room is carpeted and comfortable. I’m hard of hearing so I appreciated excellent accoustics even on a busy Friday night. We’ll be back.More

We have been coming to NOTL for many years to visit the Shaw Festival. We discovered Ginger when we were staying in a B&B around the corner and have enjoyed eating there ever since. This is a small Asian family restaurant. Service is friendly and...efficient; portions are good; the food is very good. The wine list includes a wide range of wines -- mainly from the Niagara wineries.More
