Don’t let the exterior fool you— once you enter the Yellow Ginger, it’s new, clean and modern looking. Some of the best Asian food in town. The green curry is super spicy and delicious! Very friendly and attentive staff.

Excellent offerings with an attentive staff. If variety is the spice of life then find your way to Travelers Rest and enjoy a menu with an excellent choices. Return visits to Yellow Ginger in the middle of an unassuming plaza are in your future.
