The first time I ate here the food and service were excellent -- terrific spring rolls, vegetables cooked to perfection, terrific service (esp. Jimmy), everything really superb. But each time we returned, things had gotten worse. The service has become awful, the vegetables were mushy,...More

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.

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...More
