    Best time to come is lunch. Their dinner is overpriced but come during lunch and you get same deal as dinner but cheaper. Very tasteful and authentic. All their plates are yummy.

    The mandarin tofu is amazing. My favorite place in Sunnyvale!

    Vegans will have no problem finding inventive dishes both at lunch and dinner. The faux chicken in the kung pao dish is ample. Ginger is among the best independently owned restaurants around.

    Everything was good except the soup that they give with lunch special . It is just hot water and some vegetables

    Basil chicken over rice and merlot on happy hour were good but nothing spectacular . Crab wontons were gross.. Steamed lotus leaf rice lacking.similar to pf chang prices and decor across the st. Pass.

    A hidden gem! I found this place by accident but free beer with your meal at happy hour means I'm definitely coming back.

    Great Happy Hour menu from 3pm to 6pm; offerings include cocktails ($4-$5), beers ($3-$3.5) and wines ($3), and a selection of small and Over Rice dishes.

    awesome gluten free menu. they use cornstarch instead of wheat for coating so i can actually have deep fried calamari and salt and pepper prawns.

    Get the giant vegetarian hot & sour soup with a side of steamed rice for a filling meal.

    Feeling a little too happy/satisfied with life? Come here. The waitstaff's indifference, incompetence, nonexistent service, and loathing of life in general will fix it right quick.

    This place looks like a hole from the outside but is cute inside. It's very veggie-friendly and tasty!
