Food was good, can't complain about that. Though if page 5 of your menu is close to begging for money and they try to double charge you then that's not a good message to send out. I was actually thinking about investing, friendly owner, good family and good food. Though I paid the same amount for one person as I... More

Salad. Broccoli with Feta cheese My girl and I Really enjoyed that. It was served almost a bit too cold. The beef stew was standard. 2 pieces of bread with it. The beef stew sauce could be a bit thicker, taste was fine. Red Wine is 195 baht a glass but don't let that scare you. The glass is a... More

Lovely food! We had the thai fish cakes to share then my hubby took the ribs and I took the Thai green curry with chicken. Unlike a lot of restaurants in Thailand, the starter actually came out as a starter. The fish cakes were lovely and light and tasty. The curry was beautiful, massive portion. My husband's portion of ribs... More

My partner and I stumbled upon Red Ginger, and I'm so happy we did. On the island there are a lot of places that serve the same food, and have enormous 30 page menus, which mean that nowhere is special or specialises in one type of cuisine. Red ginger has a much smaller menu, and each dish is individual, well... More

Loved this place what a fab fab owner. So friendly and the food was wholesome and yummy. I would certainly go back, The price was very reasonable as well. However the owner is having to re build his restaurant somewhere else on the island because the land owners are kicking him out which is so unfair without any compensation. He... More
