We have been to Red Ginger several times and always enjoyed the service and the food. The sushi is quite good and the food presentation is always unique. We have never had a bad meal there.

Sushi is small portions, overpriced and not the best. Service was lacking. This was my third trial as there is no good sushi in TC but still disappointed.

We visited on a long weekend during happy hour for dinner. The hostess squeezed us in for a seating in the dining room which was great without a reservation on a Friday.

On a business trip and stopped by for dinner. The nigiri sushi was fresh and looked and tasted good. We also had the Asian ribs and lettuce wraps, both were very good. It ran us a little over $100 including tip without alcohol. If you're OK with the price you'll enjoy the food

In the recent years many of my close friends have chosen this as a birthday dinner spot. I personally don't eat fish, so I assumed I wouldn't have much to eat, but boy was I wrong. They have a wide variety of options each as good as the last. They even introduced me to some wonderful vegetarian sushi options. 10/10... More

We were seated and our waiter, I WILL not say his name, was horrible. He was circling all of the tables but he would not come over. Husband ordered a Salad... More

We had a private party in the Studio upstairs and it was amazing! Balcony looking out to the lake with high end furniture, cool atmosphere for up to 50 guests, great service, and everyone loved the food! The restaurant is really good too!

Even as a local this is our favorite place to eat in TC hands down! Everything tastes awesome! Makes someone want to venture out of their safe zone and try something new! Sushi is awesome too!
