We were very impressed with Ginger Garden. Highlight was Baby Bok Choi dish cooked to perfection. We look forward to returning to experience more of the Chinese Menu and Sushi.

Over the years I have eaten with friends often at Ginger Garden and have never been disappointed. This time four of us shared ginger offerings and pad thai and found them delicious and satisfying. The restaurant is spacious and lovely, conveniently located, and has plenty of free parking.

We have tried too many times and the only thing that has changed is the portion size this time. I always order Chicken in garlic sauce, no green peppers, so simple you would think. It tastes like Chicken and Broccoli, very blah. So this past time, we mentioned it needed more garlic, so I actually saw 3 pieces of garlic... More

We've eaten at many expensive Chinese restaurants in NY and all over the world, but find this local place quite solid and a good value. We usually go for lunch, and have the lunch specials, which tend to offer considerably more meat than another good local competitor. We understand that there was an ownership change in the last few years,... More

Stopped for lunch based on all the local awards this place gets and it was just average. Large interior, but not very clean. The rug was dirty with someone's dropped OTC pills, dirt, lint, and just crud. My water glass was filmy and the table could have been cleaner. The prices were good- i ordered the hot and sour soup-... More

Unfortunately I was not feeling too adventurous that night so ordered the Shrimp Pad Thai. The dish was good (for Thai food at a Chinese restaurant) and the portion size was good for 1 person (maybe 2 if you're doing Family Style). The service was good and they were able to sit our large party within a reasonable time frame... More

We ate at Ginger Garden last night after not having been in a while. We were extremely disappointed in the meal. We had a pu pu platter and a moo shu vegetable dish. Before the meal we asked for won ton noodles to munch on, something we always loved. These were extremely disappointing as they were dripping in grease! Each... More

Everything we had was well cooked, clean and flavorful. Prices are good, atmosphere very pleasant. Consistently good for eat in as well.as take-out. A best bet for Chinese in Amherst.

You can tell the food is reasonably authentic (at least the Chinese cuisine) by the large number of local Chinese in the restaurant. Portion is quite generous, including the meat dishes and quality is okay, given that it is really difficult to find top notch Chinese food in the area.

I love this place - vegetarian Vietnamese spring rolls, scallion pancakes, moo shu, good sushi... It's a comfortable place to sit with friends, service is competent.
