Authentic Thai restaurant located within Central Market. Serves a wide variety of Thai cuisine, all freshly made, well presented and tasty. Reasonably priced, staff friendly and food was served fast.

Didn't hear of this place till a colleague introduced it. Great thai food...as good as you can get in KL. Steamed fish was fresh (though the sauce was too sweet), pandan chicken was fragrant (and deboned...loved that!) and the tom yam was authentic (not the vinegar filled stuff you get in cheap places).

The Thai food is absolutely delicious and the price very reasonable. Authentic atmosphere. Try the green curry! Yummy!! It's always a feast to go here. I take all my friends there.

We bumped into Gin Ger Restaurant while walking around Central Market. It's the best Thai food I had outside Thailand. It is as authentic as you can get. We found this place by chance and I did not expect the food to be so delicious. We had the Tom Yum Goong, Chinese Broccoli with Garlic, Mango Salad and a Fish.... More

We went here for dinner after walking around the market. We had come for the food trucks but they weren't very exciting so we were looking for something else. This fit the bill. Nice flavours in everything we chose - chicken satay, pineapple fried rice, ginger chilli beef. The only disappointment was the fish cakes - a little bland, with... More

We came here 4yrs ago and on our return to KL thought we'd go back as the satay was amazing the first time. It didn't disappoint!! They give free crackers and an excellent peanut sauce as a freebie. My only thing is that I felt it was a little overpriced for a restaurant in china town. It's the type of... More

A little tired of walking, we looked for a place to have lunch and found Gin Ger. Lots of people skip it and go to the cheaper food mall next door, but this is more quiet and relax. We had a very good curry and mihun, freshly made, very crisp and healthy!

I recommend this place for those who had been to Thailand and miss those tastes so much. Great staff, nice atmosphere, you can pay by credit card. Go there to have some rest beetween shopping sessions ;)

Stopped in here with two grouchy kids and service was a bit slow but the drinks were quite nice. If you like fresh lime type drinks, the kasturi was quite tasty. Lemon grass tea was disappointing, just tasted like tea. Butter chicken was interesting, nice touch with the shredded fried egg but a bit too salty. Rendang chicken was well-done... More
