We have eaten here twice now with some mixed results. We have found that the appetizers are delicious. The tempura vegetables and satay are particularly delicious. The duck plate ordered during our first visit was excellent, but the pad thai ordered during out second visit was pedestrian at best. The masaman curry was a bit flat, but the house specialty...

Based on a local recommendation, we came to this restaurant on a Sunday night for a later dinner with my family of six (adults and children). There is a lot to choose from on the menu and we ordered dishes to share. The vegetable spring roll is delicious with home made plum sauce along with Thai Chicken wings as apetizers.... More

We were a family of three (adult and two older teens) dining at Sweet Ginger for the first time. We were seeking good Thai food and we were thrilled to discover this restaurant. The ambiance was nice, clean, with sounds from the kitchen... we could smell the amazing dishes being prepared. The Tom Kha soup (coconut, chicken, cilantro, lime, mushrooms)... More

I ordered a sizzling platter with beef and vegetables in a hot ginger sauce and I loved it (I do like the taste of ginger which was strongly present). The other three people with... More

stumbled on this place at 9pm on a Saturday night and placed a large order for take out. 6 dishes and 2 apps came to $55!! Food was excellent- it is super spicy so beware! Staff were friendly and pointed me to the nearest beer store (through the back of their store and out in an alleyway, which was interesting)... More
