Hands down, Ginger is the best Indian place I’ve ever been to. I’ve ordered from the buffet and off the menu for lunch and dinner and either option is fantastic. The buffet always has a good variety of food, usually at a mild to medium spice level with vegetarian and non vegetarian options that always tastes freshly cooked. I tend to order off the menu so I can make my food spicy and I’ve never been disappointed. My favorites are the spicy paneer makhani and kheer rice pudding.

The service has always been very pleasant and the owner always goes the extra mile for his frequent customers.

This is in a downtown area so there is very limited street parking and a lot across the street that always has space.

The food at Ginger was excellent! Each dish we had was better than the one before. They offer a wide variety of tandoori dishes. The tandoori mushrooms stuffed with paneer and the tandoori Bihari and Angari chicken were exceptional!!
Best of all the food was not overly salty or oily. The quality of meats they used was far superior to any Indian restaurant I have been to. The service was great and had a genuine hospitality about it.
Overall, this restaurant is definitely worth a try.
