I love dim sum. I love tapas. I love steamed pork buns. We got a variety of sharables including the bbq pork buns, dan dan noodles, beans and other things I can’t remember. Service is fast. We were in and out in half an hour.

Three of us came for lunch and shared an appetizer box, dish with lobster, and several other items. All were wonderful.

The menu has a large selection of tapas dishes with a good variety. They don't get carried away with the red pepper or hot sauces like many Asians do. Family friendly and good for larger groups, so it can get loud. Nice bar and sidewalk...More

Had dim sum today with my wife and we were more than pleasantly surprised. Our server Jessica was outstanding. Very knowledgeable of the menu and made several perfect suggestions. We liked it so much we brought home take out for dinner.

This is a Dimsum restaurant, which I usually do not prefer, rather a full meal. However, what a great way to try many dishes. My wife and I both started out with their Hot and Sour Soup, which was the best I have ever had,...More

We had an incredible meal here! I don't mean to be totally dramatic, but the pineapple buns may literally be the best food I've ever had. I'm a sucker for Asian carbs, but these are seriously amazing. Sweet on the outside, but savory pork inside....More

As far as I remember, there is no specific parking for the restaurant. Downtown is busy but there are parking decks that you can use. On street parking is just a matter of luck and you might have to feed a meter.

Located in Downtown Asheville, Red Ginger is an authentic Chinese dimsum and tapas bar from the esteemed Chef Tai Tsi Lam and Hao Jiang. Red Ginger's constant goal is to deliver traditional, healthful, and elegant Chinese-style tapas and dim sum to our vibrant mountain community, providing customers with the most authentic and fulfilling dining experience possible. In contrast to the more traditional dim sum experience, wherein guests choose dishes from a rolling cart, Red Ginger embraces a dynamic and interactive dining experience: our open kitchen allows you to truly become a part of the experience that is dim sum, giving you an inside look into the artistry of our seasoned chefs. All dishes consist solely of freshly prepared ingredients, transported directly from local farms straight to your table! And we take it one step further - our extensive and delicious assortment of wines are carefully and lovingly cultivated from our own local vineyard, delivering the highest quality in taste and experience to our valued customers.
