2 Gingers fills the missing gap of Columbia not having a great Indian restaurant. Any of you familiar with A Touch of India years back and loved it will be happy to know 2 Gingers is here to save the day. Excellent staff and fabulous food. Great atmosphere. Be sure to try 2 Gingers. It's like coming home after a... More

Made our first trip to 2 Gingers tonight, but it won't be our last. Our waitress Archana was very helpful and provided excellent advice about the extensive menu. My wife and I had different dishes both of which were very good with just the right amount of spice/ heat. The entire waitstaff was friendly and our food was delivered promptly.... More

This place has changed it's name to 22 Ginger and it really has improved the menu options. I had a lamb dish with Level 4 heat and it was awesome. I will return again soon.

In the area and had to make a point to stop back in. I was going to order to go, after a long day, however the reception when I walked thru the door was so invited decided to stay. Staff very attentive and accommodating to making a special dish. I'm not sure why this restaurant is not packed, everything I... More

Food was great. Nice portion sizes. Great choices on the menu to choose from and they will alter your spice level. Servers not too friendly but it didn't matter. Lunch buffet well worth the price.

A few months ago, the restaurant Bombay Grill was sold to a new owner, who renamed it 2 Gingers. There was an immediate negative difference in the taste of my favorite dish (chicken jalfrezi), which was my favorite thing to eat in Columbia for the last couple of years. After several weeks, the new owner changed the menu completely and... More

I went for an early dinner, so no buffet. Looks like lunch menu is buffet style. The dinner menu is extensive from chicken, lamb, goat and seafood. Also... More

This restaurant was formerly Bombay Palace. It now has new owners and a new name. My wife and have have eaten the Buffet and ordered from the menu at night. Both times the food was excellent and the service was good. Highly recommended.

The previous owner was a very pleasant Northern Indian. Her food was the best in all of Columbia when it came to Indian. She sold her establishment. I wished she had not. The new owners are not friendly. They are almost odd; staring you down as you enter the place. They hardly fill the small rice silver plated side dish... More
