I rarely revisit restaurants because there is that chance that it will ruin your last experience and very rarely have they outperformed my last experience. Service may differ, but food only changes dramatically if there are different chefs on different days or time of day. Now that you know about me, let me tell you about Ginger root. It was great. Been there before and the food was good. Went this time with hubby and the lunch buffet had a great variety of Thai, Chinese, and Japanese dishes, sushi, fruit and dessert. And it was only $8.95. You cannot go wrong with that. The seats need redoing from the overweight people that often visit buffets and I saw a few there too. But otherwise the restaurant was clean, the hostess was accommodating, not necessarily friendly or over the top, but not mean or rude, either. The restaurant was fairly full which is a sign of good food usually. I was happy with my meal and got to try some new dishes and enjoy my lunch date. Definitely go visit. Remember I said very good not excellent, so manage your expectations! Do not take your romantic partner there for an anniversary or significant event. But a lunch date is thoughtful and ideal!
