Friendly service and great food. We are locals and go there often to pick up take away or dine in. I took my family from overseas and they loved the seafood and the rock salt squid.

Have eaten at the Ginseng@ Hellenic before, but this was first time at the "original". A group of 6 of us were there for dinner on a Friday night and the place was busy. We were advised that there may be a wait for the food, which turned out to be not that long, giving us time to drink and... More

Ginseng is a great place to go to for a quick inexpensive meal of good quality. It does both a la carte and lunch specials

Ginsing used to be one of my favourite chinese reastaurants after Sammy's and Timmy's, especially for the $9 lunch specials which were tasty and quick. Then a few months ago, they went downhill. The meals were rather bland and way too much onion. Today we gave it another go and although we waited for a good 20-25 mins for the... More

Had takeaway tonight & were greeted by a friendly gentleman who took our order. We had chicken & sweet corn soup,fried rice,satay chicken on broccoli, garlic butter prawns & chicken hokkien noodles. Everything tasted great(probably noodles ranked last). Only gripe was the prawn dish(most expensive of course) was only 3/4 full container which was disappointing. Overall would recommend. .

I was in Canberra for business and wanted something nice for lunch. I saw this restaurant wedged in between two buildings. Quite unassuming looking from the outside. However I had this feeling that I should go in. The tables were crammed together into an area the size of my kitchen but I sat down with my two co workers and... More

we arrived expecting a relaxing Sunday yum cha lunch. There were 12 of us and they put us in a back room. The trolleys of food never made it back there! After the initial 25 minutes of still no food (yet there were trolleys coming in to serve the other 3 tables also in the back room - we were... More

Management response:

Hi there, Sorry to hear about your unpleasant dining experience, both Ginseng Restaurants aims to provide quality food and service. However I believe you may have mistaken one for the other in this review. Ginseng Restaurant Manuka do not offer yumcha whereas Ginseng@Hellenic does. I just wanted to clarify this to save any confusion for yourself and other users of... More

Always a quality food with great service. Duck pancakes, dry fried chilli beef and chicken with veg & shitaki mushrooms (not a dish on the menu but happy to provide) all great. Small and worth the trip.
