Review of Sweet Ginger

Reviewed 18 May 2014

Only 14 tables - orders within our large group were varied. The Service was terrific, and always with that warm Thai smile. One order of duck was too dry, but all others gave thumbs up. The BBQ (tasted wood fired) mussels from New Zealand were wonderful - cooked just right. The spicy Calamari was cooked perfectly, the veg (baby corn, mushrooms, peas, carrots) were covered with red spice that was not too hot, but just enough zing to require a bite of the perfectly cooked rice every fourth or so bite. The selection of teas and beers was not long, but a very good selection. Spicy beef went off the plate so quickly I didn't get to sneak a bite, and smelled mouth watering good. The neighborhood traffic in/out for quick take out tells the story - a local favorite haunt. It is on my list of "visit again". Decor is very plain, but the prices gave terrific value for very tasty food. My eyes watered a bit every once in a while when peppers smell came from the kitchen. Clean and simple decor.

Food is always good. We get take-out from here about once a month. They just got a liquor license too if you're looking to eat in and have a beer.

Great food. They will change it up for you (spice, allergies etc...) and make good suggestions for substitutions with in reason. Lots of people coming in for take out. The owners are super friendly and know us by name now.
There are lots of Thai restaurant's but this is by far the best we have had an has been for a few years now.

Wonderful friendly service. Delicious food that is interesting and not at all expensive. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming. The wine is cheap in price but not in quality. We had two glasses of wine, two main courses and ginger icecream for dessert and paid less than 50 dollars. A great little find!

Great little Thai place. Good prices and fantastic pad thai. What more do you want? They have a liquor license now, so you can have a beer with your meal :-)
