I like Ginger Cafe. I like their selection and I like the atmosphere. I do have an addiction to their tofu (of which I'm not usually a fan...It's deep fried, that might be it:) I'd skip their appetizers and their soup is often questionable but...More

Arrived late afternoon and restaurant was definitely not busy. Service and ambience were OK but not memorable. Food was another matter, definitely sub-standard especially considering the price.

The food here is very good but I think a bit overpriced. The location is convenient for me and there is always plenty of parking. I like the eggplant and lettuce cups as well as the won ton soup

Soup was OK, rest of food really borderline mediocre, with very odd aftertaste (overused/burnt oil?) vegetables were both fresh and chicken and seafood washed and laundered, nothing authentic and far from many many great Asian restaurants we've tried, very underwhelming, and we ended up paying...More

This is the togo place in Sunnyvale, Food is very delicious and quickly served. It is definitely doable for lunch. They have a lunch menu that is smaller portions and inexpensive.

This place is delightful; we were there with a large group and ordered a bunch of food and drinks including appetizers. Every single item was awesome and super tasty. We ordered seafood, chicken and veggie entrees including chow mein and fried rice. I highly recommend...More
