We enjoyed a lovely meal here. The scallop appetizer was delicious and our steaks were cooked perfectly. We couldn't resist dessert and got the creme brulee and sticky toffee pudding. Delicious! Great spot. Note that it's a bit tough to find - it's located off a side street. Put in the effort to make your way here. The food and... More

I'm not a vegetarian, in fact not even close but the vegetarian menu here is out of this world!! The main menu is just as good too 😋 I love the homely feel here. One of my favourites

We booked 24 hours in advance and could only get a table at 5.30 pm, which spoke of a popular restaurant. The style is simple and laid back, and the food was terrific - very original dishes, beautifully prepared. At the time, due to licensing issues, their policy was to bring your own bottle, and they levied a small corkage... More

Great location, within 5 minute walk to the grand opera house. Staff were great. Food was not the run of the mill food served in other locations, a bit fancier. I would be a fussy/plain eater but have to say I really loved the food. Chocolate fondant was 1st class, on a friends recommendation 8 people in our group ordered... More

Where to eat lunch in Belfast on Thursday lunchtime? It is not our town, so where to go? A quick check on Trip Advisor and Ginger looked like a winner! We were really happy with our choice. Easy to find, plenty of nearby parking... very welcoming staff. A table was found for us, service was swift and efficient. The squid... More

A group of 11 of us eat on a Saturday evening and everyone enjoyed their meals. My wife and I both had Hake and Noodles for our main course - excellent piece of fish beautifully cooked. The restaurant doesn't have an alcohol license at present so you need to take your own - not a problem as there are a... More

Disappointed with my visit this time around, sadly. Starters were fine but main courses took over half an hour to arrive, although the restaurant was not busy. Also felt the staff couldn't wait to get rid of us. I felt really deflated - sadly my love affair with Ginger has come to an end.
