“Great neighborhood Chinese cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This is a great family-run Chinese restaurant near Emory University. The menu is incredibly broad and the dishes are well prepared.

“Our favorite local Chinese place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

This has been our favorite local Chinese dining for fifteen years. The menu is extensive and diverse. We especially enjoy: hot and sour soup, chicken with garlic and black bean sauce, pan fried noodles with beef, mixed vegetables with tofu, and the spicy braised eggplant. Prices are very reasonable. They have beer and wine. Service is good.

“Been serving for years, ofter overlooked”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Near the high brow zone of Emory and the CDC are a tremedous number of dining venues of all types (overpriced cafes, ethnic places, bars, pizza). A lot come and go, others like Pyng Ho have been in business for decades. This is a second generltion family owned Chinese Restaurant. The dishes are high quality and the selection is diverse. There are many specials each week. There are some Thai and seafood dishes. Try Mandarin Chicken for a sweet and savory treat. Steve's Honey Walnut chicken Salad on the lunch menu is also another treat. If you do not need to drive or return to work, endulge in a Tiki Tumbler--a concoction of juices and booze to make the day go by. I am a born and bred New Yorker raised on Deli and chinese food, this is one of the best Chinese Restaurants in the region. Do not miss it.

“We love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2012

We have been coming to Pyng Ho for at least 12 years. When my daughter was little we would go weekly and she would polish off a whole adult entree. We like it so much we even had our rehearsal dinner here with a spectacular multi-course gourmet menu. You can get the usual Chinese food but you also can get great specials. The owner is more than willing to make alterations for special diets. Ask for suggestions and you are bound to be pleased with the results. He will suggest different sauces and preparations for every taste. Great seafood dishes.
