Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What has happened at our local go to Ginger restaurant? Reservation 6.30pm, arrived a bit earlier. Great food - starters, mains but when we asked for desert and drink menu at 7.15 pm, were advised no further service as they needed our table. Hold it...- $170.00 in and ready to spend more. A real destruction of years of patronage. If they had advised dress in running gear, gobble your food quickly and bring a doggie bag for dessert, we could have gone elsewhere, but this is not the superb Ginger we patronise. We appreciate restaurant costs and turn of tables, but 45 minutes is for fast food, street food cafes, not Ginger.More

No question the food is always good - very good; and the place was full and buzzy; we were the second shift at 1930 two nights ago. But oh the service! No-one welcomed us. The waitress made no personal contact with our table of four....We had to ask for everything. No offers of drinks refill; no top up from our bottle of sparkling water. No menu suggestions. No offer of dessert or coffee. And no-one asked how the dinner was nor farewelled us nor thanked us for coming. I almost forgot - we waited 45 minutes between entree and main. In summary - takeaways next time!More

Ginger is one of the restaurants located by the intersection of Remuera Road and Upland Road. They only do dinners. Their menu is quite interesting with a few signature dishes. I tried a few of them, the Ginger Tacos with prawns and the Ginger Salad....I also had the duck on fire. the flavours of their dishes are amazing. Full of flavour and taste delicious. My only fault with them is that the dishes are smaller even though it costs quite a bit more, most items being in the $30 range. the tacos are interesting. I think of it as more of a tostada since the "shell" is flat. Nice strong flavours and the prawn was cooked nicely. The ginger salad was like a larb salad with fried fish. The duck on fire was actually set alight on the table but it was just on the plate around the tin foil containing the duck. The duck was nice and the flavour of the sauce was tasty. I grabbed one of the mango creme brulee for dessert and it had a nice mango flavour to it. It was quite busy, with full tables and plenty of takeaway orders, and I can see why. It is really nice and tasty Thai food that's a bit away from the city.More

Decided yesterday we felt like Thai food for dinner, so because Ginger was close to home, we telephoned to make a booking. What a great find. We arrived at 7:15pm to find the only vacant table was for our reservation. The restaurant was light and...modern, and the staff were very pleasant and helpful. We both had the mixed appetisers, (spring rolls, satay, Money bags and Kae Ree puffs). I had sizzling pork for a main and my husband had cashew nut stir fry with duck. All the food was delicious; beautifully served and generous portions. We will be back!More

Four of us ate here on a busy Wednesday, luckily we booked! We asked our host Henry, to recommend suitable dishes and we were delighted by the choices. We shared amongst the 4 of us, duck, salmon, chicken larb and snapper, all great. We finished...our evening with an affogato, made just for us. Thank you so much more making our evening so enjoyable, we will return!More

Fantastic Thai restaurant tucked away. I had the scallops with ginger and my starter was calamari but the desert was a wonderful surprise mango creme brûlée home made and very delicious. Henry was a wonderful host!

Wow best Thai meal ever - this is a seriously good restaurant. Stylishly decorated great staff and fabulous food. The puddings were a big surprise after an orgasmic starter and main course.This is a must go to restaurant!! You will not regret it!

A great place, with a great vibe and lovely staff. The meals were delicious, but the real surprise and highlight was dessert. They weren't your typical Thai restaurant desserts, but works of art created by a clearly amazing dessert chef. They were beautifully presented and...a great combination of flavours. Definitely will be going back here!More

This was our second visit to Ginger, a new Thai restaurant. The food and service are excellent. The Thai chef creates food that is fresh, clean-tasting and made with quality ingredients. All the dishes we had were very good. Highly recommend the yellow chicken curry,...cashew nut stir-fried duck, pad thai, mixed entre ... the list goes on. The restaurant is an upmarket local - relaxing modern design.More
