Cafe Ginger is currently where Cafe Le Jadite used to be. It took over the space and much of the decor, which is a bit over the top! Large terracotta camels and horses stare at you from high platform, and a large, very red light fixture with dozens and dozens of lights in it hangs from the ceiling. The walls... More

A 4 star Chianese Restraunt has plummeted since the place was shutdown earlier this year due to building damage. The food was cooked but cold. Very little taste unlike it used to have. One bright area was our server Crystal. If you do happen to go here for a meal make sure to ask for her.

Visited again this week and was warmly welcomed upon entering. The atmosphere was calming and enjoyable. Service was again top notch all around. I had the grilled sea bass which was cooked perfectly. To drink I had the KIBO sake which I highly recommend. Thank you again Cafe Ginger for a wonderful dinner experience.

The quality of the food and the dining room makes for a pleasant experience. It is worth dining here vs. takeout. Excellent service. Decent wine list. Would like to see more Cantonese dishes.

We were looking for a light meal and Cafe Ginger provided the perfect answer. The three of us shared two starters and two main dishes and they were perfect for our needs. The service was impeccable and the food excellent. Definitely another go-to place in the future. AivarsT

We wanted Chinese food and I hadn't been here in some time. Always loved the space since it was Cafe Jadette, and still looks as good as ever. Decided to have the Chinese lunch special with yummy crab puffs and a chicken and eggplant dish that was terrific, with just enough kick with Jalapeños and Thai basil. Big chunks of... More

We were 14 people in a group and they gave us a round table for 14 people. Never seen a round table for 14! Food was excellent and service good. Overall a good place to eat in expensive area of Houston

We have eaten at this restaurant on at least three occasions. It is in the River Oaks Shopping area. The first thing that strikes you when you enter the restaurant and are seated is the beautiful decor. That, in itself, is worth the visit. I am not certain who they got for an interior decorator, but it was done in... More

We dine at Cafe Ginger about once a week, and it is consistently good. The service is also very attentive. They have a tremendous Happy Hour until 6:30 that runs during the week days through Thursday, and the great thing is that you don't have to sit at the bar to receive the great prices for delicious food. Their lunch... More

First visit- 4-6-2016. Take out order. General TSO. THE BEST I'VE EVER EATEN! Super lean white meat chicken, very light delicious breading. Perfect rice, side of sauteed green beans- nice addition. Super delicious hot and sour soup. Have passed this restaurant for years, never knowing it was a Chinese Restaurant. Going again today!
