The food was great. The prices were even better and the service was fantastic. We have been in Brooklyn and Manhattan for over 2 weeks and after eating in this humble place we declared it our favourite restaurant of the trip so far. We will be going back!

Very friendly staff. Vegetarian fare. Some dishes are vegetable, some tofu, some seitan. Everything we've tried has been an excellent substitute for meat dishes of the same name.

Cozy, casual spot with a large variety of vegetarian options. Lots of classic Chinese dishes with a vegetarian spin. I had the sesame seitan with brown rice. The seitan was perfect and the sauce amazing! The staff is kind and friendly and the food did not disappoint! It's also on a quaint little street perfect for meandering. Would absolutely recommend...

I would not normally give 5 starts to a restaurant where the service was slow. They took a while to take our order then one meal arrived a long time before the other. The decor is dismal and old fashioned - a candle on each table would cheer it up. Despite these criticisms I am giving Vegetarian Ginger 5 stars... More

Was in the area and looked up a vegetarian place on trip advisor. This location popped up. Had the pumpkin soup w/root vegetables and white beans. Nice. Good temperature and portion size. Also had the eggplants and string beans in basil garlic sauce. Very good flavor. Nice portion size. They really packed it in. Tried the general tso's soy protein.... More

The restaurant offers some really good Asian delicacies . My husband whose a pure vegetarian really loved the Malaysian "Chicken " gravy made in coconut milk .It's almost impossible to beleive that it's vegetarian . An opportunity vegetarians shouldn't miss .

The menu seems to be for a standard Chinese restaurant, with all the dishes anyone would expect. Every one is excellent, but prepared with mushrooms, tofu, seitan, or other vegetarian options, instead of meat. Reliably excellent kitchen preparation, friendly service, not crowded in my experience, usually a weekday evening after arriving in NY when staying in DUMBO. The window wall... More

I will preface this by starting off and saying that I am NOT vegetarian or vegan... I went here last week with a friend of mine and the food is outstanding. We tried 3 different dishes because the lunch special is only $6.99 and it came with soup or salad ...and the main meal + brown or white rice. I... More

Vegetarian Ginger on Montague Street in Brooklyn Heights is a restaurant to have what is sometimes called alternative foods. It's a cute little diner style restaurant on the second floor of the building on the corner on Henry and Montague Streets. The staff is very friendly. You will find what appear to be regular dishes on the menu but your... More
