Has all what you need... great atmosphere, food, service - not always so easy to find in one place, especially in Dusseldorf.

On their website, they advertise themselves as a Chinese-Thai fusion kitchen. We had three different curries, and none of them stood out. Most of the dishes have evocative names like "The dream of the red bedchamber", so I asked which one might resemble a Pad Thai, and strangely enough, none of the staff was sure what that even was.

I did like my spring rolls, especially the spicy sauce on the side. My crispy duck strips were nice enough, though the curry beneath them was average. I think this place is more popular for its atmosphere and decor than for the actual food. It has a chic vibe. The drinks were very good. I had an excellent passion-fruit juice with mint leaves, and one of my friends had a wonderful ginger tea.

One kinda disgusting point:
One of my friends had spilled some curry on her shirt, and we were refused a simple glass of tap water. They said we would have to buy bottled water. We all presumed they were just trying to make more money, but the manager ended up telling us that their tap water was not clean and essentially said that they had been ordered by the health department to not bring it to the tables. I guess you have to appreciate her honesty, however they must wash their hands and vegetables on premises, so I found that pretty gross. Why wouldn't they get a filter? Plus my drink had ice-cubes in it, and I doubt they ship those in. I'm glad I finished the drink before they had a chance to melt! We asked if any of the food had been prepared with water, and she said, yes, but that it had been cooked, so it was OK. Strange.

None of us plan to go back. If you do want to try it out, get a reservation. It looked like every table indoors had a reservation card.

Hallo,lieber Gast.Wir sind mehr als schockiert über Ihre Bewertung!
Fakt ist: Sie hatten mit Ihren zwei Begleiterinnen keinen Platz im Restaurant reserviert,jedoch konnte die Inhaberin ( nicht Managerin !) Ihnen einen Tisch zuweisen.
Ihnen wurden sofort die Speisekarten übergeben aus denen ganz eindeutig erkennbar ist das wir kein Thai-Restaurant und schon gar nicht ein Thai-Imbiss sind!Diesbezüglich hat der Service mit Ihrer Nachfrage zu speziellen Thai-Gerichten auf die Curries der Speisekarte hingewiesen!Aufgrund Ihrer anderen Bewertungen bei TripAdvisor gehen wir allerdings von der Annahme aus, das Sie einen preiswerten Asiatischen Imbiss gesucht haben.Wie Sie unseren Bewertungen entnehmen können, sind wir mehrfach für exellentes Essen und Service ausgezeichnet. So viele Menschen können sich nicht getäuscht haben!
Nun zu der Unverschämtheit: Fakt ist:
Das sich einer Ihrer Freundinnen mit Curry die Bluse verunreinigt hat war dem Service und der Inhaberin nicht bekannt!
Warum hat die Dame die Bluse nicht auf der Toilette mit Wasser gereinigt?
Der komplette Service ist der Überzeugung das Sie das Wasser trinken wollten!In Deutschland wird leider kein Leitungswasser als Getränk ohne Bezahlung angeboten!
Das Deutsche Leitungswasser ist unbedenklich sauber, nur Sie haben die Aussage der Inhaberin
befliessendlich bei TripAdvisor falsch interpretiert!
Gerne begrüßen wir Sie mit Ihnen Begleiterinnen nach entsprechender Reservierung wieder in unserem Restaurant Gingerboy!

Cute restaurant in a residential-ish neighborhood with friendly service. The food is fine...the hand-thrown noodles, chewy and delicious. All the veggies were a really nice change from meat and potatoes all week. The waitress even called a cab for me.
