Good food, friendly service, very reasonable prices. What's not to like? I puffed out on two dishes, the tempura was fresh, pretty much the same as you get everywhere, and the stir fry was delicious.

Daughter called and wanted to have a late lunch. Well, yes to that! But where? We decided to meet at Ginger Boat. It sits in a strip mall, and I'm pretty used to restaurants in these locations to being ok, but nothing special. But this was not to be the case! There was only one other customer at a table,...

Huge servings - couldn't finish it. Very good! Appetizers were great too. Good service too. Overall a great place to eat if you are looking for pho.

We decided to try the Ginger Boat, we were a little disappointed. They were out of a number of items. We asked for additional ginger and they had none. We were told they used ginger in their recipes but you could not taste it at all. The staff was friendly and they give a discount to Western U students so... More

Wonderful Asian restaurant tucked into Sehome Village...fresh, good, well-presented menu. Great service! Pho was outstanding, also tried Drunken. Delicious!

Small, cozy, attractive, great bathrooms for such a small place, food excellent! Not far from WWU but you can find quiet time there if you go mid-day. Haven't tried it at night so I don't know how busy it is then. It's been around for awhile with some adjustments, but it carries on. Try it, you'll like it.

Was shopping at REI before heading into the Cascades and used TripAdvisor & Yelp to check out restaurants in the shopping center for a quick meal. Ginger Boat had very good ratings so we ended up there. Was expecting more Japanese Food but my meal was more of a cross between Thai & Japanese and it was GREAT. I had... More

Was a great experience, believe new name is "GB" in Sehome Village. We understand that this is a new change and everything was great! Service, food, price, and nice setting

I lived in Japan for 5 years and am picky (meaning Chinese restaurants rarely make good Japanese food). Went at 4:30pm on a Monday, no customers. People started arriving around 5pm--they were clearly repeat customers who felt right at home. Ultra clean which is very Japanese. Ordered tempera shrimp and vegetables with rice--like a shrimp tempura donburi, but they served... More

I used to live in the apartment complex across the street and would regularly visit Ginger Boat. They've got good prices, friendly service, good portions, and I'm a fan of their Teriyaki sauce. It's my 2nd favorite Teriyaki spot in BHam, narrowly beat out by Lakeway Teriyaki.
