Service was amazing. They were really attentive and friendly. The restaurant is very clean as well. The only cons are the lobby right beside the restaurant plays music and the restaurant does too so all the different sounds get annoying fast! Although the food came out fast, it lacked seasoning so it was just okay.

Overall, great place to eat prior to seeing a show at the MGM. This was my second time eating at Ginger. One thing that I noticed, my entree (basil beef fried rice) was not as spicy as the first time, which was surprising for a basil dish. My guest (5) also enjoyed their dish. This was a great way to start our night.

Had a great time dining with my family. My 3 year old was even able to stay seated and enjoy his food. Was able to see the light show in the atrium from restaurant. Ginger serves a lot of food and would be best served family style.

a bit disappointing, appeared rundown, frayed at the edges. at the very least mismanaged - we had checked in, they found our reservation (got email confirmation) and were asked to wait but were never seated...later Sr manager (without apparent effort to determine the facts) informed us that they were not honoring Open Table reservations at this point...

Expected a higher price based on location; also expected higher quality of food for the same reason. One delivered, and the other did not.
Not a fantastic dining experience; again price is not directly related to service eg. out of a $15 beer, didn’t know when I ordered, and didn’t know alternatives.

Food and service were fantastic. The biggest problem is they had no real way of checking in people with reservations. Clearly let too many people book at same time or they had let a bunch of walk-ins take tables just before the pre-show crowd WITH reservations. That being said the food was absolutely awesome!

Service was excellent, made a reservation and was promptly seated at a table in the indoor patio, with a view of the MGM main lobby. This location was great for people watching, but it made conversing a bit difficult due to the noise.

Ordered steamed dumplings as an appetizer. Pineapple fried rice, drunken noodles, house beef in black pepper/honey sauce. The cuisine was good, but a bit overpriced. The texture of the steamed dumplings and drunken noodle were a bit too soft. Our server recommended that I try a Kagua beer which was excellent. Dishes were delivered promptly after ordering. Due to the price and location, I expect more attention to detail with regards to the cuisine. To be fair, this was during a busy Saturday night and I did not ask our server if Ginger had any signature dishes, which would have led to a better experience.

This place is nice as far as the location & ambiance, but I just don’t think the prices reflect the food. Honestly, we have a delicious Chinese restaurant down the street from my house that’s half the price and would put this place out of business if they decided to go “upscale.”

We were rushed to get to the Penn & Teller show and the restaurant accommodated us. Service was fast and the food was good, but not pushing any envelopes on the spice level. Portions were large so leftovers were lunch the next day. We would go back.

I was here recently for a nice Dinner with my family. It is located in a good spot within MGM so we were able to people watch and see the light show in the hotel atrium. The downside is the noise level can be a little high especially if you are closer to the Atrium.

In regards to food in my opinion it was a bit overpriced for basic standard american Chinese food that I could have ordered at a local fast food restaurant. I was kind of disappointed. I ordered the 1/2 duck with plum sauce because it was described as a Cantonese prepared way, but when it came it definitely was not served like the Cantonese way that I have had in China recently. The plum sauce was more of a ginger orange sauce NOT anything similar to a plum sauce. The rest of my party felt the same, it was overpriced and they felt like they had had better Chinese food from the fast food restaurants than at Ginger.

Tables for two were so close together, you literally bump elbows with other diners. The waiter had to step between the tables to let another waiter go by, and he had to turn sideways to fit with his butt less than 6 inches from my face—hanging over my dinner plate.

Food was typical of our neighborhood Asian cuisine delivery...except double the price.

The waiters and waitresses were very kind and friendly, but that’s not enough to make us ever come back.

Spent $150 for two people and left half the food behind on our tiny, crowded table.

We thought the food was good and the service was excellent. The MGM is a great place to visit, just be aware that you are going to pay premium prices. We knew this going on but wanted to give accurate feedback. We thought the food was good, nice variety and good flavor but for the $ it could have been a little better. Service was excellent. Attentive staff, always right there to help.

I took my sister for her 50th birthday and we had the fried lobster!!! Everything about the experience was first rate — from our seating to our warm farewell. The attentive service made us feel as if we were the only customers on a busy Friday night, and the fried lobster was BEYOND AMAZING! I highly recommend Ginger, whether it’s a special occasion or you just want something outstanding to eat. (The crab fried rice is also a must have.)

Ginger was a great disappointment. The seating, noise level and lighting were cafeteria like. The food was mediocre and expensive. My husband's glass of house wine was $19. and my rail vodka martini was $17. The curry dish had uncooked vegetables in it and the hot and sour soup was so highly spiced it was unpleasant. The one redeeming quality was a very kind and attentive staff. We really regretted that we didn't choose the food court for dinner.

I'm really not sure why this restaurant has so many good reviews - the food is bland and overcooked, and way overpriced for what you get. I was hoping to have a decent meal while at the MGM, but next time I think I'll skip the "find dining" and head to Shake Shack.
