Favorite dining spot in T C the best Asian dishes in Northern Michigan. Great service they care . You must try the Calamari app the best. All the rolls and specials are the greatest.

We had planned for a steak dinner a block away...but for some reason that grill was closed. We walked over to the Red Ginger and although it was Valentine's Day and we did not have reservations, we were able to be seated. They recently opened a fully enclosed patio overlooking the river...that is where we were seated. Service is very... More

My wife and I wanted a low key anniversary with outstanding food. We chose Red Ginger. I could eat the lettuce wraps everyday they are so good. The other small plate we really enjoy is the filet cooked on a hot rock. Yummy!

A great choice for a special occasion. Service is always friendly and attentive and the food is creative and delicious. Not a place for budget minded diners but worth it for a special dinner.

I was in Traverse City for the weekend with a group of girlfriends. We were excited to try Red Ginger after reading the reviews. We made sure to get there pretty early (before 4) so we wouldn't wait long for a table. As we walked in, there was no line and only five small tables up front when you first... More

This place is mediocre. The food is okay, the service is okay, the prices are higher than you'd expect. It's always crowded, so other people must like it more than I do. Judge for yourself, but I left underwhelmed.

My sister and I visited on a busy Saturday night and had wonderful service and great food! We sat at the sushi bar and were entertained by watching the endless plating of beautiful sushi. We ordered the salad special for the night that was really interesting and delicious and very fresh. Then we ordered some sushi, and we had the... More

I look forward to dining at Red Ginger when visiting family in TC. The sushi and Thai entrees on the menu are fantastic. The eddemame is always done to perfection to start. To notch service from the minute you walk in the door.

I honestly went to this place based on a lot of reviews I read with my girlfriend for a weekend getaway. We are huge japanese food junkies and sushi freaks so of course we end up picking the one place in the area that offers it. The wait time was pretty extensive and we ended up taking a seat right...
