Red Ginger

With the right ingredients, the alchemy of talent and passion can transform an idea into a business and magic can happen. Walking through the doors of the Red Ginger stores in Byron Bay and Bangalow is like stepping into the lanes of old Shanghai and finding your senses come alive to the sights and smells of Asia.

Red Ginger is generously stocked with rich spices, Asian groceries, steaming yum cha snacks, oriental medicines, fine teas, teapots, gifts, homewares, recipe books and traditional Chinese furniture.

The heady aromas and visual artistry make Red Ginger a dynamic hub for locals and visitors who keep returning for the delights of sitting in the store eating Yum Cha and drinking the complimentary green tea or indulging in a delicious Portuguese custard tart. The dumplings are freshly steamed all day long or you can buy them frozen to take home.
