                            After seeing a review on Tik Tok about Pickled Ginger we thought we would give it a try and we were not disappointed. Really good food and nice chilled vibe in the restaurant

                            Waitress who seated us was a bit rude and abrupt towards us and often found it hard to get the servers attention at times even though it's such a tiny, intimate setting. The food and drinks were nice but a few of us left with some funny stomachs. Would maybe give it another chance to redeem itself but not raving about the place.

                            As regular clients we know what to expect. The food overall was slightly better than recently - the karage was crisper and the hot food generally hot. It is not a cheap eat enough food for 2 big eaters and 2 kombuchas - no wines or beers and at the table for only an hour came to £72 with tip.

                            My partner and I both ordered the Chicken Katsu curry which was really tasty. Service was great and really friendly. Only negative I would say is that we found it quite expensive - 2x Katsu, side of veg and 2x Beers came to £40. Would recommend as a treat👌

                            We have been disappointed by the quality of food overall. The fish quality is fine, but it’s ruined by how they s@“”it was sliced(not the right portion size). The rolls were ok, but blended. The Karaage chicken portion size was good. The waiters was very nice and efficient, but the place was very noisy ( not their fault, but because of the lack of education of others customers who seem to think they are alone)

                            Loved, loved, loved it! We went to Pickled Ginger for my daughter’s 15th birthday. She loves sushi and this was her request. Both daughters and my partner had the mixed sushi platter whilst my youngest (aged 3), literally devoured 2/3rds of the Yaki Sobu. I honestly don’t know where he puts it! I had the Chicken Katsu bento box and th miso soup was divine! Portions were generous and very tasty but somehow my tribe still had room for the mochi. All very tasty but my nibbles of everyone’s was definitely the coconut and the mango 🤤 We’ll be back (sorry 😄)!!

                            Food was excellent, great choice on menu. Tasted incredible!!Service was ok. Staff were lovely. Table wasn’t ready/set for booking time so we had the table sprayed and cleaned while we were sat down which was a bit annoying. Could have been easily avoided. In spite of that, great night and lovely staff.

                            What a lovely restaurant, the food was amazing, it was really impressive so tasty and loads of food but not too much. The Desserts are really lovely too so are the cocktails. The place is quiet and the staff are super friendly but leave you to it also. Very lovely and would recommend heartily.

                            Absolutely loved our evening at Pickled Ginger. We had Yum yum chicken and chicken gyoza ramen and some sides. Best ramen ever!! Wasn’t the most spacious and this is a consideration due to current COVID levels. Service was wonderful as were the cocktails.

                            The food was amazing, it was the best katsu I have ever had. The waitress was very sweet and knowledgable about the menu when we asked about portion sizes and how much we should order. Will definitely be back soon!

                            Great meal. Excellent value. Loved the mixed tempura and sushi. Katsu curry and teriyaki very nice. Woukd have liked to see a few more different curries/main meal choices. Tables a little close together, but nice atmosphere.

                            Been to Pickled Ginger a few times but not for a long time. Once again it was really good. Loads of main dishes and sushi to choose from, everything we got was top drawer and I can’t recommend the Bulgogi highly enough, an outstanding dish. All good is freshly prepared so can sometimes take a while but it’s worth the wait. Service was excellent as usual. There’s a reason why this place is always busy whether it’s takeaways or sit in. Won’t be leaving it as long to return

                            The sushi starter arrived at the same time as the ramen dishes, contrary to our wishes. The ramen was seriously under flavoured.

                            I really enjoyed my meal but my hubby was a bit disappointed as he asked for his to be extra spicy (he was told the dish was spicy to start with) but it was quite bland and not spicy at all. Other than that it was a lovely restaurant with great staff.
