We didn't have much time and need to get a bite near a downtown office. So we walked around the corner and literally took a quick glance at the menu and said let's try it. Very attentive waiter who helped use navigate the menu. We shared very thing including fries that were Amazing. The chicken salad so fresh with mint,... More

Not good in general. Unfriendly, slightly rude service and blah food, some of it made sloppily. The waitress (a tall white woman, young), must have come to our table about 4 times within 5 minutes to ask if we were ready. She was robotic and unfriendly and a bit to "in your face". I am not sure why she needed... More

Cool, casual atmosphere, attentive pleasant staff, overall above average Viet food, made with good produce & no msg, the starters are delicious, the pho is mostly good (I've had a weak broth on occasion), the coconut sorbet is delicious. easy parking in adjacent lot. I eat there maybe once every three weeks.

They say you have a better chance making money on the “wheel of fortune” in any Las Vegas casino then you do opening a restaurant. I believe the mortality rate of restaurants are about the same as the divorce rate in the bible belt, which is somewhere around 80 to 90%. That is why I do have to give props... More

Seemingly out of nowhere, find this great authentic Vietnamese eatery: full of clean, savory, fulfilling flavors and satisfying portions. A perfect stop for a hot tasty soup on a cold rainy night!

Gingergrass is a small and cozy restaurant in Silverlake. I loved the fresh ingredients and the authentic Vietnamese flavor. The service is excellent and it opens late - ideal to grab something to eat before going out with Friends.

I've came here quite a few times and always bring friends to introduce them to the great food here. I like coming in and trying the different desserts they have available. I've never had a bad dessert here yet. Without fail I make sure that I always order the fresh ginger limeade or the Gingergrass gingerale. I love that they... More

This is quite a little gem in Silver Lake nestled in suburbia.Its a no fuss simple style restaurant. We chose a few starters to share the Vietnamese summer rolls, chicken wings and the calamari followed by the pork belly, coconut cod and shaky beef with a side of snake beans. All the tastes were fresh, meat very tender and we... More

Excellent Vietnamese food in a minimalist, casual setting. We tried a number of the dishes and liked them all. Two of us had banh mai sandwiches, one pulled pork and the other tofu. We also had fried tofu and the chicken salad. To start we had vegetable spring rolls which featured fresh veggies in a thick rice paper. For dessert... More

When Gingergrass first opened, I ate there often. The food was tasty, staff friendly, and it was a congenial spot to have business meetings. The tables aren't set so close together, and at lunch, you can actually hear your conversation. Some restaurants are so loud, conversation is moot. Then I moved out of the neighborhood, and other trendy restaurants opened... More
