The food is underestimated! The sushi and sashimi really good. The chicken wings are big, crispy and juicy. At dinner time was empty. The place doesn't look much, but if you are looking for fresh flavors, these is the place! Give them business!!!!

Take out is ok, however don't expect to get what you ordered if you grab something to go. I have ordered things multiple times and if you request to not have a certain fish in the lunch or sushi meals they will still put it in.

This is a small family run restaurant that I've chosen as my go-to chinese take-out place. The steamed veggie dumplings are good, along with the vegetable lo mein and broccoli with garlic sauce. Prices are very reasonable for the amount of food that you get.

I rarely revisit restaurants because there is that chance that it will ruin your last experience and very rarely have they outperformed my last experience. Service may differ, but food only changes dramatically if there are different chefs on different days or time of day. Now that you know about me, let me tell you about Ginger root. It was... More

We picked our dishes off menu sheet in our motel room. Food was delivered promptly, hot and delicious, not greasy and priced great at $8.00 per. We were impressed.

I've been ordering take-out from Ginger Root for years but yesterday I decided to try the Monday-Saturday $8.95 Chinese / Japanese lunch buffet. It was absolutely delicious!! The egg foo young, shrimp dish, and fried scallops were so good! At the Sushi bar I loved the spicy tuna and the seafood sushi! Yung and Kim are great hosts and make... More

Food is okay but customer service is horrible! Take out may be okay! My family and I went to this place for a family dinner and were stuck with nasty attitudes! The supervisor even raised his voice at us and scared my children because there was a confusion in an order and he had an extra egg role! Food was... More

DELIVERY ORDERS BEWARE!!!!!!! Most horrible experience ever! First when the food was delivered, order total was 29 dollars and change, my husband only had 2 20.00 bills. Delivery driver had no change and instead of going to get change or coming back he took it all and said "no change"!!!! So needless to say paid an extra 10.00 for a... More

I've been coming here with my infant daughter (now a toddler) for 3 years now. It's very family-friendly. The sushi is phenomenal and fresh! The food is also wonderfully cooked. This is a family run business and they make you feel at home. Grandma/grandpa cooks in the back (so it's pretty authentic). It is a smaller/cozier place so it was... More
