Seems like a local place for younger people to drink early. Hard to get a drink if you’re not seated right away. I think making reservations would make it easier to get faster service.

Red ginger acts like they want to be a 5 star restaurant but lacks in most of the details. The best part about our meal was our beer and sake. The best employee was the wonderful hostess! The manager Ernest could be bothered less to...More

A very crowded and busy restaurant. Cocktails were adequate as was the sushi. We shared the curry with jasmine rice. Be careful - everything sounds so good that we ordered too much food.

No, but they have "small plates" that would be appropriate for children. Basically they're just smaller versions of the other dishes. No hot dogs or PB&J however.
