We frequent here often and have never been let down. I think it is the best Chinese takeaway in Canberra.

Have dined in-house and ordered take-away over the last 8 years. Has never disappointed I wish they would open another restaurant closer to where I live. The produce is always fresh and delicious and the service is prompt and efficient.

Ginger and Spice can always be relied on for great service and delicious food. I always go there for special times such as birthday celebrations. The price is very reasonable and the food is well prepared. The lady in charge makes you feel as if you are a visitor in her home.

I moved from Canberra to Brisbane eight years ago and every time I go back, I go to G&S. This time, the gap had been over two years. It was fantastic to see that the menu still had all my old favourites (10 flavours chicken!). Service was super quick and the food great as always. Yum. Yum. Yum.

Best food and service. Fiona always has a welcoming smile on her face and always remembers us. Very well priced. Would highly recommend to anyone who visits Gungahlin ACT.

This where we get our Chinese/Malaysian fix and they rarely disappoint. Meals are delicious and authentic. Decor could do with a bit of a refresh as it's rather outdated.

Not the first time we've eaten at this restaurant and won't be the last. As there were only four of us and six are required for a banquet, we decided on ordering two entrees and three main dishes, as well as steamed rice. Our entrees arrived very quickly and were delicious. Our main dishes were served to us promptly after... More

We are a regular and Ginger and Spice - the lady who owns it knows us by name and is always incredibly friendly. We often go for everyone's birthday because we know how great the food is! Food is fast, well priced and always delicious!

We had several dishes including soup. The worst was the honey chicken. I don't even know if it was chicken. It was grey & had a strange texture. This place survives on a reputation for what used to be an excellent restaurant. Just horrible experience.
