Respond to Review of Cafe Ginger
Review: Dinner - I went on a Sunday night so I am not sure if the food was different for this night only. The chef was really nice, he came and chatted to everyone and made sure they were alright, which makes writing this review that much more difficult. I found the food the least appetizing restaurant food I have eaten for a long time. I can't recall ever thinking this in a restaurant (I am by no means a good cook) - but I felt even I could do better. It was healthy - composed of cut up vegetables, but from the more 70's school of hippy vegan (or how I imagine it) that says top everything with dried herbs to add flavor (it doesn't). If I had brought a carniverous friend I would have been embarrassed for this vegan representation. On top of that it was very very expensive for what it was (I didn't eat my dessert - again I cannot recall that happening before). The service was relatively efficient but passionless & a little cold. Lunch - I went to dinner there because my lunches there have been so good. They turned out to be the opposite of dinner; delicious, thoughtful, fresh, good value and tasty. I had a savory crumble of the day which came with a lovely assortment of little salad dishes. The chocolate 'pate' dessert was also good, and the couple serving there were very friendly and approachable. I'm very sorry to have to give Cafe Ginger such a mixed review.
