If you are looking for authentic Asian cuisine, then Cafe Ginger is your place. Our ambiance and decor will transform you to an exotic place in the Orient, while you sit back and enjoy our signature dishes. We offer authentic Chinese dishes such as Beijing duck, steamed Chilean sea bass, and lobster tail with scallion. Our restaurant also includes a sophisticated and comprehensive wine bar where you may order wine by the glass or bottle. Although we specialize in Chinese cuisine, our Japanese dishes are just as good. Not only do we have an outstanding sushi bar, but our sushi chefs are happy to create unique specials to satisfy the toughest critic. All of our food is prepared fresh daily and we use the freshest produce and finest ingredients. We are happy to invite you to enjoy a unique and memorable experience at Cafe Ginger.

I’ve been going to Cafe Ginger before going to a show downtown for years. Some of the best Chinese food I’ve ever had. The decor is amazing, the food is wonderful, and the service has always been great. This is a great choice for a date or a nice quite dinner.

The green beans and the dumplings were simply amazing. The calamari wasn’t great but good. General tso chicken was dynamite. High quality chicken and great flavor. Highly recommend.

My partner and I go there when we want delicious, fresh, rich flavors, a taste for particular favorite Chinese food that we enjoy ordering every time we go there.

We have tried your traditional to specialty items and each time we order them they all taste the same which is what we grave in each dish.

Thank you for keeping your doors open even through the relocation...

Every time I go and have lunch or dinner I am welcomed with warm greetings by Mr. Joe or Mr. Perez. The food is always delicious and fresh.

I had the Cajun Roll and it was amazing and spicy, which I enjoy when eating sushi.

Excellent lunch menu. I have been going there for years, although I have to travel further now as I have moved. Still worth the trip. Food is very good. My only negative was ordering off the menu and being charged more than other dishes (and the price it used to be).

Always, always, always superb, considerate service at Cafe Ginger. The waitstaff is 5-star, making this a local staple for neighborhood dining. Great choices of food and wine. We particularly enjoy the sesame chicken. I would not, however, recommend the sweet and sour chicken. The pieces are small, and the sweet and sour sauce is saturated in the batter, making the meal seem soggy. Nonetheless, Cafe Ginger is a stellar, local choice for inner-loop Houstonians, providing a quiet ambiance imbued with Asian art.

I gave Café Ginger 4 stars for the food as my duck was dry and disappointing.
My husband's dinner, Shrimp & scallops Hunan was outstanding.
We started with the steamed dumplings which were offered on the "Happy Hour" menu. They were delicious

Every time I go there I’m treated as if I am part of their family. Management, posters, wait staff, and other staff always keep my glass of water or tea filled and periodically I’m constantly being checked on which I appreciate.

We has had theshrimp tempora appetizer. Terriaki sauce watered down, no excuse for "cheaping out" kon an important part of the dish.
Sweat snd Tangy Shreaded Pork was good. Would choose this again.
Vermicelli with seafood just okay, rather bland.
Still tryimg this menu to find consistsntly good dishes. This was our third time. Still not sold on this place.
