My Chinese friend and I came here for dinner. We loved it. From the Soup and Tea, to the excellent Tempura Shrimp and other delights. We had a thoroughly enjoyable dinner. I recommend it heartily.

As far as I remember, there is no specific parking for the restaurant. Downtown is busy but there are parking decks that you can use. On street parking is just a matter of luck and you might have to feed a meter.

Located in Downtown Asheville, Red Ginger is an authentic Chinese dimsum and tapas bar from the esteemed Chef Tai Tsi Lam and Hao Jiang. Red Ginger's constant goal is to deliver traditional, healthful, and elegant Chinese-style tapas and dim sum to our vibrant mountain community, providing customers with the most authentic and fulfilling dining experience possible. In contrast to the more traditional dim sum experience, wherein guests choose dishes from a rolling cart, Red Ginger embraces a dynamic and interactive dining experience: our open kitchen allows you to truly become a part of the experience that is dim sum, giving you an inside look into the artistry of our seasoned chefs. All dishes consist solely of freshly prepared ingredients, transported directly from local farms straight to your table! And we take it one step further - our extensive and delicious assortment of wines are carefully and lovingly cultivated from our own local vineyard, delivering the highest quality in taste and experience to our valued customers.
