I tried the soup with wontons and bokchoi and it was excellent, took the basil stir fry with chicken to go and had it for dinner in my hotel room, also excellent. based on this, I'm confident the pho is very good and will be trying it next visit.

Good food, friendly service, very reasonable prices. What's not to like? I puffed out on two dishes, the tempura was fresh, pretty much the same as you get everywhere, and the stir fry was delicious.

Daughter called and wanted to have a late lunch. Well, yes to that! But where? We decided to meet at Ginger Boat. It sits in a strip mall, and I'm pretty used to restaurants in these locations to being ok, but nothing special. But this was not to be the case! There was only one other customer at a table,...

Huge servings - couldn't finish it. Very good! Appetizers were great too. Good service too. Overall a great place to eat if you are looking for pho.

We decided to try the Ginger Boat, we were a little disappointed. They were out of a number of items. We asked for additional ginger and they had none. We were told they used ginger in their recipes but you could not taste it at all. The staff was friendly and they give a discount to Western U students so... More

Small, cozy, attractive, great bathrooms for such a small place, food excellent! Not far from WWU but you can find quiet time there if you go mid-day. Haven't tried it at night so I don't know how busy it is then. It's been around for awhile with some adjustments, but it carries on. Try it, you'll like it.

Was shopping at REI before heading into the Cascades and used TripAdvisor & Yelp to check out restaurants in the shopping center for a quick meal. Ginger Boat had very good ratings so we ended up there. Was expecting more Japanese Food but my meal was more of a cross between Thai & Japanese and it was GREAT. I had... More
