Ginjo Japanese Restaurant Comes to Walpole, Mass.

Bookmark and Shareby Eric H. gives a hearty welcome to Ginjo, a new restaurant in Walpole, Mass., with hibachi (including great, "fiery" shows being put on by the chefs), sushi bar, dining rooms, a lounge, take-out and delivery services.

The restaurant features a comfortable but beautifully sleek, spacious look, thus belying its plain strip mall location just outside downtown Walpole on Route 1A. Formerly the Blue Orchid Chinese restaurant, the prideful ownership of that restaurant remains intact (and with the original Blue Orchid still in operation in neighboring Westwood, Mass.).

Our first visit included sampling a delicious buckwheat Soba noodles with beef, shrimp and assorted vegetables. Judging from this introductory, incredibly fresh dish, we look forward to visiting this new Japanese restaurant again and again. More reports on Ginjo to come!

We just finished dinner at this fabulous new restaurant and are thrilled to find such good food literally in our backyard. The sushi was outstanding, as was the tempura. We had fun interacting with the wait staff and already look forward to our next visit. I sound like a paid advertisement, but this really was an outstanding meal.

Agree, this is a fantastic place. They are also serving Chinese food now, in addition to the Japanese cuisine. Suddenly, Walpole has three "major league" full-service restaurants on Main St., downtown: Ginjo, Jalapeno's and the Raven's Nest. Nice to see!
