Wine available by the glass was limited, but by the bottle there was a good selection of Australian wine to suit any budget. It is also BYO (wine only)
Ginger House certainly grew on me, and if I ever wanted a second opinion I could have always asked the steady stream of notoriously fussy Brighton-ites coming to collect their take-away. Each one Eric greeted by name."

I had to try Ginger House and got the opportunity last night.
It does have a nice atmospere and is a very comfortable suburban restaurant.
They also have a private room upstairs for about 15 guests
The service is prompt and friendly. Unfortunately we had a constant problem with the food.
Every dish was very over salted. I had to add 1/4 cup of water to make the normally delicate crab and sweet corn soup edible. The hot and sour soup was almost thick enough to eat with a knife and fork and very hot. Fried rice had to be returned (which they did graciously) The wild Barramundi fillet was beautifully cooked in ginger and shallots and crisp snow peas
The sweet sour battered chicken had lain too long in the sauce, which was sweet but lacked sour, so the batter was completely soft defeating its purpose of providing textural variation to the dish
I have to agree with FB's mark. As always it might have just been a case of poor selection of dishes
