Not your everyday Thai. The food slightly leans towards fusion in a very positive way. Even traditional dishes are presented in a refreshing way. Tom Yum soup is very good as are the curries. The Lunch specials are a great value, but come hungry as the portion for lunch is greater than your trainer would allow.

Wild Ginger is one of those places I went a few years ago, and quit going. And then I went back to see why I quit going, and now I remember why. It's good. Even though I give it four circles, I think that's because the service was fine, and the speed of getting food to the table was fine.... More

I went to dinner there last night with a friend and the food was very fresh and tasty. Also, the service was good and the prices are quite reasonable. Very enjoyable dinner.

Wild Ginger has fantastic dishes, the food and service are great just know they close between 2:30 - 4:30. The soups are fabulous, and have enjoyed most of the spicy lunch specials. The spicy and sweet combo is very satisfying.

Wild Ginger features wonderful traditional dishes and Thai creations that will not disappoint. I especially like their yellow curry with Shrimp. We often use their take out and eat at home and often there is enough in a single order for a second meal. the true test of Thai is Pad Thai and theirs is tops. Perfect flavors and simple,... More

This is a small BYOB restaurant on Maplewood Avenue. The service is attentive. The food, while not exceptional was very good. Ambiance was excellent. I enjoyed my meal, my dinner mate wasn't as happy. The staff was not sensitive to allergies. So if food allergies are an issue, you may want to call in advance (and hope whoever answers the... More

I love Thai. Love Pad Thai. Love Thai spring rolls. And this time I saw Duck on the menu and went for it. Crispy, juicy, delicious duck that came with sticky rice. I didn't know what to expect because I've never had duck but........ it was delicious. Absolutely delicious. We also tried the pad thai which was incredibly tasty. We've... More

Food was fresh and good together with adequate service. They don't take reservations, so on weekends the wait can be a while.

I hate not giving great reviews. I love Thai food. I found Wild Ginger to be very average. The food was good, but not great. The portions were on the smaller side. It was fine. If I was in the mood for Thai but didn't want to drive - this would be fine.
