We had a couple of excellent dinners here so decided to try it for lunch. We ordered a "lunch box" special and a dimsum special. The lunch box was served in a large bento box with a fried fish fillet on a dark leaf salad, fried spring roll, three pan fried dumplings, three pieces of sushi and some seaweed salad. It was enough food for two people. Next time I would try one of the other available sources of protein as I didnt really care for the breading on the fish. The dimsum box had eight pieces, two each of the chefs choice. We both enjoyed the shrimp dumplings and mushrooms dumplings and my husband really enjoyed the pork bao. I wasnt crazy about the dense ball of meat/fish that filled one dumpling on the dimsum box as well as the pan fried dumplings on the lunch box, but my husband was happy to eat them and there was plenty else for me. It was definitely an excellent value for twenty dollars, but I would probably give it three stars. The four star rating here is because of the better experiences Ive had here with my tapas choices at dinner.
The service was fast and friendly. My mom has a cough and the server took that into account, seating is away from an air vent. The ambience is clean and quiet. We ordered six tapas for three people - $75 well spent. 1. Crispy snapper, came with salad, completely boneless, perfectly cooked, accompanied by a great sauce! 2. Shrimp and chive potstickers - tasty and prepared fresh. A classic. 3. Lobster - served in a creamy carrot sauce and asparagus. Nicely cooked and came w rice. Used the sauce for the fried rice - mild and delicious. 4. Pork bun - great balance of sweet hoisin, rich pork belly, lightened with cucumbers & cilantro. 5. We were able to split the fried rice served with chicken, egg, Chinese sausage, and green onions. Really great compliment to the meal. 6. Fried scallops. Came in a sauce similar to the dumpling sauce. The scallops were fresh and served w a great Chinese sweet potato. Not very unique but yummy. We were full and will be going back to try other things!
This is by far the best dim sum in 200 miles of Asheville, NC. The atmosphere and interior are straight out of NYC, the place has class! There is an open line, and a beautiful wooden bar in front of the line. It is fascinating to sit there and watch them create these wonderful treats to the palate! In the back of the they have another classy bar where you will feel at home sipping a martini and talking with friends. Absolutely eat here, try the Black Truffle Shu Mai, if you like a tiny bit of spice definitely give the Szechuan Wonton a shot. I personally am a fan of the curry soft shell crab as well. The plates are small, the point of dim sum is to explore many different flavors in a single sitting. I have never been disappointed here, even when randomly trying something form the menu. They also have a very affordable bento box lunch and it does not disappoint! Bottom line, dont leave Asheville with out trying this place.
Went to Asheville for the weekend with my friends, and we ended up going on an incredibly busy week. We first went to Tupelo Honey Cafe across the street, because of all the good reviews, but the line was about 1.5 hours long. So we decided to go across the street and we were seated immediately at Red Ginger. The lunch specials are outstanding and the prices cannot be beat. I enjoyed the light eats and I welcome the opportunity to go back and try Red Ginger for dinner next time. I also appreciated their cocktails. Lychee in a drink is something I had not done yet, and it was an outstanding combination! If youre in Asheville and are a fan of great food, amazing waiters/service, and very reasonable prices, you should check Red Ginger out!

To put it bluntly, this place was a terrible experience. For a deeper understanding as to why, its within the modern phrase known as a hype job. In fact, this restaurant should be the first image you see when you Google hype job. Essentially, Red Ginger is overrated, expensive, and prepared by people with a limited understanding of how Asian cuisine should be presented to customers paying such ridiculous prices. If you ignore the micro food portions, the food quality itself was barely par, mostly generic flavoring and overall forgettable, in terms of design and taste. I could hardly call this place the worst Asian restaurant in the Asheville area, but easily the most overhyped. Avoid at all costs and spend your money elsewhere.
This was by far one of the best places we went for dinner in Asheville; in quality and affordability. My husband and I ordered about five small plates and a pot of jasmine great tea to split and our bill totaled to less than $40. Also, the plates we ordered had a good amount of food on them (6 vegetarian potstickers for $6 and 6 pork dumplings Shanghai style for $8). We went around 9:30 on a Saturday night and it wasnt jam packed, which was a nice and relaxing change from some of the other places in Asheville. Would strongly recommend the pork dumplings Shanghai style and the vegetarian potstickers!!
If you are a hipster with a little too much money hunting for decent Chinese food then this is definitely the place. Dimsum at Red Ginger is good enough to rival bigger city restaurants but you will feel shorted when you see just how small the plates are for the price. That said, the dishes are wonderfully presented with a nice and friendly English speaking staff. At least the cooks are natively Chinese. Also, the atmosphere inside is sleek and modern.
This place doesnt even deserve 1 star. My husband and I came from out of town with family and it was the worst weve ever experienced . I ordered the grilled chicken and it was all FAT! My husband ordered the EggPlant and by the he got his food it was 40 mins later everyone had already ate. It was so soft and mushy. The manager tried to sugar coat things . Save your money. Go somewhere else !!!
I have been living in the US for over 15 years since moving here from Taiwan. This place is legit! absolutely authentic food here. I tried the fried dumpling and the shrimp balls both are amazingly crafted. Cant wait for my beef noodle soup to come now! The fact this restaurant is in downtown Ashville walking distance to every shops here makes this place unique.
So good, we went twice. We had the egg plant, soup dumplings, curry soft shell crab, pot stickers, wonton soup, and deep fried lobster. Lobster was cook just right, but I felt like it was too much batter. Curry was mild. Soup dumplings were hot and fresh but sadly I dripped all the broth out. wonton soup is ordinary. Egg plant was great. Great service again.
Waited 45-50 minutes for food, appetizers were forgotten to be rang in by wait staff as well as drinks. When the food arrived it was cold and mediocre at best which was surprising and confusing since the wait was so long during a fairly slow week day I should add. First ever review if that says anything I hate to complain but save your time and money.
Love the decor. Its a great lunch spot or could be a romantic date night local. The food was delicious. They had great classic like lo mein noodles and a few dishes for those feeling less adventurous. They also had a few great specials that offered a sampling of many different menu items at a very reasonable price. We cant wait to come back.
