Since there were such mixed reviews thought we would give it a try for ourselves. Place is dirty, women bathrooms was filthy and it was 5:00pm we were one of two tables in the house. Food overpriced for what you got. Had to put salt on chinese food...how often does that happen? Waitress was untrained and had tunnel vision with... More

My first visit to Ginger Café. Very modern type décor. You can tell it's an upmarket restaurant. Prices seemed to be above average priced. I ordered the Steamed Dumpling Platter - $17. It took 15mins to be served. The platter had two of each dumpling type. Altogether there were 8 pieces. Presentation was good. I am judging my meal from... More

This is my favorite restaurant in Gilroy. I am pretty picky with restaurants and most do not hold up to my standards. This one does! They have a wonderful selection of choices and I have never been disappointed. Love the sweet and sour pork and the pork tenderloin with wine sauce, garlic shrimp. Food tastes very fresh. Service was very... More

Been here several times and each time it did not disappoint. Excellent food. Great selection. DELICIOUS! Service is a tad "spotty" at times, but it has never been a problem. Highly recommended.

Went to the cafe for a late lunch after going to the outlet stores. It's kind of a run of the mill place with average food, but the soup was far too spicy for my taste. (I don't like hot stuff) Service was not up to par, and not a restaurant that I will go back to for lunch or... More

Ginger Cafe has lunch specials, in addition to a wide-ranging menu. The Shanghai Noodles were our favorite! The Tom Yum noodle soup was also very good but spicy. Skip the dim sum sampler - - only 2 of 5 were steamed and the deep-fried items were very heavy and not appealing. A highlight was the excellent service.

Another favorite go to restaurant, from dim sum to pad Thai, they have a broad range of asian styles with signature fusion dishes, love the carmelized garlic prawns (this is Gilroy).

I returned a noodle dish because it was too salty. Silly me! I thought they would remake it with less salt, they rinsed off the noodles and brought them back to me. I didn't even get apoligie when I brought it to the managers attention.

I read the reviews and thought I would stop in and give this place a try. As far as sushi goes, they have one roll. If you go in during happy hour you can get a beer or glass of wine free with the roll. The roll is okay. I also ordered the crab meet cheese puffs/wontons. They were missing... More
