Chinese Food

Went there because of craving of Chinese food being an Asian. The food was good. Even though the taste was not as perfect or authentic as the chinese food I get in my country, it was still satisfying.

I normally don't like giving negative reviews, but the experience there was not so pleasant. I attended a meeting in the convention center, so this place was the closest restaurant that I found. When I entered the waitress said sit "ANYWHERE" you like, so I chose a seat with 4 chairs, I went at the time they just started, so... More

I have eaten here many times ... the daily buffet is average but always fresh. The dinner menu is very good ... everything I've tried that fits my palate. The calamari is the best I've had ... cooked properly and spiced well, it was terrific.

A good friend and I decided to dine here a couple weeks ago. It had been years since I had been here. It is always a great idea if you are looking for good, inexpensive Chinese (well, Chinese American) food. The sesame chicken was perfectly cooked. I was saddened that there were only two other table in the restaurant on... More

The menu is has many great dishes. The food is fresh and served timely even when they are very busy. I have eaten there with groups of friends and we have always enjoyed the food and the service.

We had dinner with friends at their recommendation; the food upset every one of us! Service was "ok" but the food tasted below average; had very few veggies (which were listed as part of the main attraction of my dish) and the coatings on the sesame chicken were super thick yet tasteless. Do NOT recommend.

I have not been to Ping's in years, but had loved their Moo Shoo Chicken. Friends told me that the food is still great. My spouse and I went there for lunch on a Saturday. There is no off-street parking, so we had to hunt for a meter on a very busy traffic day. Our first impression when we walked... More

Nopety, nope, nope, no way. I steer the Christmas outing my family enjoys (endures) each year. My parents, my sister and her family, and my husband and kids had all just about forgotten the horrific mess that was last year's Murder Mystery Dinner when we rolled into Ping's on a Friday night. It should be noted that I chose this... More

Truly average. The prices aren't great, the food is only ok. Why wouldn't you cross the street to the best bar/pan-asian food in town?

If you are in the area of Eat Street (17 blocks on Nicollet Ave filled with great restaurants) you should give Ping's a try if you are on the downtown side of Nicollet. The atmosphere is basic but the food choices are plentiful and delicious. We sampled the egg rolls, crab puffs and pot stickers. All were yummy. My favorite... More
