A word from Royal Ginger - Upper Arlington
The base to majority of our Pan-Asian fusion cuisine starts with our hand-made sauces, which are prepared on-site with only the freshest produce and highest quality ingredients. Combine this with a very exclusive sushi menu, full of some of the most creative traditional and tempura-style rolls, and you have Royal Ginger Asian Fusion Bistro. Keeping the balance between authentic classic themes and innovative contemporary ideas is how the entire restaurant was designed. We take traditional techniques and flavors from all different Asian cuisines, and fuse them together with a modern twist, creating a sensational assortment of dishes that are guaranteed to stand out from the typical oriental-style restaurant.

    Moved to UA and are slowly trying out all the local eateries. I was pleasently surpised with the upscale decor and entrees. The food was great and service was good also. Will definitely go back again.... and order the crispy duck again!

    This place really has it all. The sushi is always fresh and well presented. My favorites include the sweet potato roll, the edamame, house salad and singapore noodles. The servers are always on top of it and know the menu by heart. Quick and good. It doesn't get any better than that!

    My husband and I have been looking for a sushi place since we moved to Columbus a few months ago that had innovative sushi rolls. Royal Ginger totally fit the bill! They have a wide menu of unique rolls and other Japanese/Korean-style fare. Our server was also outstanding. He was very attentive. I would recommend Royal GInger to anyone who enjoys sushi and is looking for something a little different.

    I've been to this restaurant several times and always had fresh tasty sushi even though I don't eat fish! Recommend California roll, Shrimp Tempura Roll, Asian Fusion Roll. Also the hot and sour soup is the best as it the Singapore Noodle dish.

    My wife, daughter and I went to this location for my birthday. We thought it would be a change of pace from the Polaris location, but were mistaken. My wife said that the Thai Spring Rolls were different than the ones she had before at Polaris and she didn't like them. My daughter and I ordered the fried dumplings, which at most Chinese restaurants are typically filled with a spiced and seasoned sausage. These were filled with what I can only describe as unseasoned, and very dry, ground chicken. The rice in my sushi tasted unseasoned. Also, my spider roll had lettuce in it. I've been to a lot of sushi joints, but never had lettuce in my spider roll. My wife's General Tso's chicken was so overcooked that it was like little cannonballs.

    We had a family dinner here. The food was ok, typical American Asian but mainly Chinese dishes. The decor is cool and pretty new. The food arrived fast and service was good.

    I love this place when we are in the mood for sushi. Saturday night was busier than any other time we have been there. Good food and service.

    My wife and I decided to try Royal Ginger because they were a Prestige Dining Club member. And thank goodness as our experience wasn't worth the full price. We made a reservation on opentable and walked right in to our seat once we arrived, although there were quite a few empty tables the entire time we were there, the 6 o'clock hour of a Saturday night. I'm not a big sushi fan, so I was pleased with the many options besides sushi that they offered. I ended up opting for the won ton soup and the sesame salmon. The soup was OK. Our main courses came too quickly. We'd barely started on our soups. The salmon was luke warm, overcooked and drowning in sauce.

    I had a wonderful experience here.I went during restaurant week to try out their menu. One great thing about this restaurant is there are drink specials or sushi specials that run Mon - Thurs. The food was very authentic and delicious. I cant wait to go back to try other things on the menu. The only bad thing I would comment on is if you like calamari then dont get it here! Try something else that they are known for like their sushi!
