Stepping into the Red Ginger stores in Byron and in Bangalow will transport your senses to the lanes of old Shanghai and open your eyes to the many delights that are Red Ginger. 

Sitting in the beautiful Byron store, or on the verandah in Bangalow, eating delicious handmade dumplings or Portuguese custard tarts and sipping green tea has become a quintessential experience for locals and for visitors, who make Red Ginger an essential stop when they visit the area. 

It’s a grocery store selling every Asian ingredient you will need, from fresh local kim chi (made by a Korean family on the Gold Coast), miso, fresh noodles, roasted barbecue ducks and pork, locally foraged seaweed, locally brewed soy sauce, the very best fish sauce, rices and spices, curry pastes, fresh herbs, and more from every corner of Asia. With nothing but the best brands available. 

Red Ginger is so much more than an Asian grocery store; it is a beautifully curated colourful Asian emporium of rich delights for the kitchen and for the home. Within it you will find Japanese ceramics, teas and teapots, colourful market baskets, Chinese beaded slippers, recipe books, furniture, and wonderful curiosities to delight your senses.
