Very hot outside, was going to go to food truck fundraiser, but didn't want to stand in 40 people deep line...So, Wild Ginger was very nicely decorated and traditional Japanese theme. Started with miso soup, very nice, fresh with kombu and tofu. Chirashi was presented very nicely, and fish was clean and fresh, on top of sushi rice in a... More

The best thing about Wild Ginger is the lunch special which includes soup and an entree. Otherwise it's very pricey. We have had lunch here a few times and order the wonton soup and the sesame chicken with brown rice. Always tasty and we usually need a take home bag as there is quite a bit of chicken in this...

We have a Wild Ginger in Maplewood and it is pretty reliable with tasty Thai food. I made the mistake of visiting this one in Ridgewood, NJ for lunch sushi. I hope I don't get sick. First, don't be fooled by "half price" sushi, which winds up being about the same cost as the lunch special sushi with 3 rolls... More

Always wanted to try this place and got an opportunity as our target restaurant in Ridgewood was closed on Monday. Of 5 of us, one liked their dish - sesame crusted salmon, one was Ok - lobster, and the balance was pretty disappointing. Even the sushi was well below par. Waiter was very pleasant but made a few mistakes in... More

Average is probably a bit generous. The sushi tasted fishy and that's never good. Wait staff was inattentive. Did like one of the rolls.

I've been to this place countless times in different days of the week and I have to say that is pretty good. the price is unbeatable and the sushi is fresh and delicious. You can always get a fancier atmosphere and probably better sushi at other places but you can beat its selection. We love the dragon roll, no name... More

Busy place but we were seated immediately. Menu is comprehensive but a little confusing. Service was great, very prompt, food brought to table one dish at a time which makes it difficult for the eaters to decide whether to wait and eat together or start when the dish arrives. Hosts are very quick to take away dishes and turn the... More

Great sushi for a great price. Many rolls are discounted to 50% off. The best part is that it is BYOB!

My family and I go to this place almost every week, the sushi is pretty good but the fish like tuna is not the best quality. There hot dishes are pretty good. The half price sushi is good but the rolls are smaller than the regular price and there is less seafood. On Fridays they are very busy but they... More

Half priced sushi makes this place OK for a quick bite. Nothing special. Prices are good, food is just OK
