Tons of options off of a traditional "American" menu and their authentic Chinese menu. Lots of fresh daily specials. Great casserole dishes to share. Prompt service. Always busy but plenty of tables so there's never a wait. Good sushi lunch deals. Fresh food and good...More

This. Location has changed hands over the years and I'm not a fan of mystery Asian food so I've stayed away. Today at a friend's urging we went for lunch and I enjoyed it. It's very pleasant inside and the menu was varied enough that...More

We enjoy eating here and return often. Service and food are consistently good. We also enjoy sushi and have never been disappointed with any of our choices. They have a really good lunch menu that includes both traditional Chinese and sushi.

I ordered chicken fried rice, general chicken and ribs. The first 2 were so good because they all have big chunk of chicken, the other restaurant usually give you small pieces of meat. The ribs tasted good, but too much fat on them this time....More

Whenever we are in doubt as to where to eat, Ginger Garden is always our first choice. There is never a parking problem, food is always very good, prices are very reasonable. We especially like the "Authentic" Chinese menu which has some non- standard dishes.

Has a great selection of traditional Chinese and Japanese dishes. Wait staff is efficient and friendly and food is served quickly. They have left off a few of my favorites in their new menu, but I can always find another good dish.

While attending the festival in Amherst MA, the food from Ginger was very tasty. The atmosphere and choice of restaurants with booths were numerous. I recommend this restaurant.

I know Chinese restaurants typically start out good and tank after a certain amount of time. This one is not the case. Service was snappy. Food hot, as it should be. But face it, how many variations of some young guy can you get. Same...More

The first time I ate here the food and service were excellent -- terrific spring rolls, vegetables cooked to perfection, terrific service (esp. Jimmy), everything really superb. But each time we returned, things had gotten worse. The service has become awful, the vegetables were mushy,...More
