Diner Reviews
  • "My friend and I wanted to try a new place to eat that would be very pleasing to the palate, but we did not wish to drive a long distance to get there. This place was amazing! The food and service were outstanding. Made a reservation through OpenTable, and we were seated immediately upon arrival. We had an appetizer, main dish, and dessert. The scallops were the best I've ever eaten. For dessert, I had the sweet potato waffle with bacon ice cream. Very interesting flavors, but I liked it very much. Many of my friends call me a food snob, and I do not like many of the restaurants in and around the Goldsboro area. I am excited to have found this gem so close to home! Will be planning an evening to go back in the very near future."

  • "Awesome restaurant. The food and the service were both great. To start with we got two apps and some drinks and leisurely ate, drank, and chatted. Definitely no pressure to eat fast and not a rushed experience; most enjoyable. We ordered two entrees. Both were delightful, however the scallops were the best I have ever eaten. Definitely order this meal if you like seafood. For dessert, we had the triple choc cheesecake and it was amazing and large enough for two to share. I highly recommend and look forward to dining there again in the near future."

  • "We started the meal with some scallop won ton. The sauce was delicious. I ordered a noodle bowl with grilled shrimp. These shrimp were jumbo size and fresh, not bagged frozen. The staff greeted you, server made great small conversation, and you you thanked for coming as you left at the end of the night. Excellent hospitality and great food. One thing they didn't seem to focus much on was the wine selection, but there were still bottles being ordered on other tables. The selection seemed limited to a double-sided 4x11 menu. Would totally recommend this and plan on trying again. Kinston is slowly getting a restaurant scene between Chef and Farmer, Boiler Room and Ginger 108."

  • "Though we love Chef & the Farmer, it costs at least twice as much! The chef at Ginger trained with Chef Vivian (Chef & Farmer) for three years, so she is very talented. Her dishes are innovative with a Asian twist."

  • "Good food, nice atmosphere. The dishes were presented beautifully and were unusual which is a nice change for Kinston. The cucumber ice cream was a surprising delight!"

  • "Kinston is finding it's place in the world. Overall Ginger 108 is a very nice restaurant. In my opinion it is a nice smaller version of Chef and The Farmer. The prices are not bad and the food is good. One complaint is that the first time I went I ordered the scallops, which were awesome. The next time I went they had changed the Chef who also decided to change the cooking technique on the scallops ( I preferred them the old way). Also the new chef had removed some items from the menu such as the crab cakes, which my fiancée had specifically came to order. Besides the menu changes the food was still good and the service isn't bad either. If you are tired of chain restaurants like Applebees, Ginger 108 is a great find."

  • "So, we dine at this restaurant when we are visiting in-laws in Kinston and this is the third visit. We reserved the table through open table twice. The food is great for Kinston and it's a great break for us to get away for a couple of hours. BUT this restaurant only has two, two top tables, which just happen to be in the WORST spot in the restaurant. So this Saturday, we happened to be sitting at the offending table again,while the teenagers who were out on a date were sprawled on a four top opposite us. I know about seating in restaurants as I used to host, but when you are not busy, you need to "upgrade"! Having said that, we will continue to go there, but we won't make a reservation next time so we can get a table like the cool kids."

  • "This restaurant was much better than even expected. The portions are small, but priced right. We enjoyed ordering one plate at a time and sharing, allowing us to try more of what is offered. I think it would be a challenging place to visit and order individual meals. It is unfortunate that only this restaurant and a couple others on the same block, along with the brewery are about the only things in the area in business."

  • "Great evening, a Saturday night and we are not local so can't judge too much but we had 10 and got the private room which was a big plus. Very friendly staff (thanks,Zack) and all around an upscale meal and good experience--"

  • "Ginger 108 is a welcomed compliment to nearby downtown restaurants. The meal was delicious, plate presentation was pleasing and the wait staff are very professional. The menu selections varied enough to truly please all appetites. Appetizers were superb and the dessert was delicious! I live in Kinston... but would drive to eat at Ginger 108 as well as the neighboring restaurants downtown."
