Ginseng - Frankston, Mornington Peninsula

There are many Chinese restaurants in Frankston. I believe that Chinese restaurant maybe the most common type of restaurant in most states of Australia, therefore lots of choice. Good for us. Some are rough and tumble take-away food shops others aspire to fine dining. Once more,  good for us.

Ginseng Frankton is a basic Chinese restaurant on Nepean Highway in Frankston. It also runs a take-away. On the night I visited Ginseng I was with ten others for a birthday party. Fortunately this is a BYO restaurant which helps ease the pressure on the wallet. Generally Chinese are inexpensive restaurants to eat at but when you can bring your own wine, it gets cheaper. Parking is easy on Nepean Highway or nearby but you may have to drive around to find a spot. Staff were efficient and friendly though a few meals were brought to our table which no one had ordered.

Food quality, taste and presentation suffered though. The food was not good and most at the table were not impressed with food quality. To add further insult the decor is mixed and confused and the whole “joint” needs a freshen-up.   The eating area is big and expansive and they have no problems accommodating big parties but don’t go expecting exquisite Chinese Cuisine. Try else where.
