This is a truly authentic Chinese dumpling. I am Chinese from Beijing, China. I am so happy to run into this restaurant, it made me feel like come home. the dumpling is so tasty and they made many variety of sauce with it. Also the...lamb skewers are so good, all food here are delicious and heathy. The owner Ping and her staff are so nice and friendly, super sweet people. This is typical northern china cuisine, made just like in China, I recommend all our Chinese friends to give this restaurant a try, and I sure you that your are not going to be disappointed.More

Great soup dumplings! Huge boba tea menu. Very clean restaurant- everyone wearing masks and tables socially distanced.

Had heard great things about this place. Not borne out. Received a small box of dumplings and plastic container of dipping sauce take out for $12 after waiting 15 minutes. They did not taste great or very fresh.

Food is truly great. Dumplings are truly like you get in a family kitchen. The only negative is the service that is far from being at the level of the food

The food was alright, nothing special, but the service was terrible. Rude, the waitress and the cook were yelling at each other, everything was just plopped down, they forgot to give me cutlery and condiments. Would not recommend.

Ping's was close to our hotel and convenient. We only took take-out, so maybe that's the reason the dumplings fell apart a little. I was glad to find some vegan options and both the vegetarian dumplings and the big buns tasted good. It was a...bit pricy, but it's Seattle after all and they were still cheaper than elsewhere in the city. We came back the next day for more.More

I first ate at Ping's about two years ago and found the xiao long boa disappointing because the wrappers fell apart when I tried to pick the dumplings up with my chopsticks. I've eaten these dumplings in many places in China and NEVER has that...experience. I recently returned to try the food again and was pleased to see that the decor had been redone and looked much nicer. The food too had improved but was still not up to the standards that I hold. We ordered pork xiao long bao, an onion pancake and would have ordered mapo tofu, but the restaurant didn't offer steamed rice to accompany that dish (odd). The dumplings were okay but nothing special, the pancake was undistinguished, but the meal was cheap.More

Authentic Juicy Pork Dumplings in the International District of Seattle. Who needs Din Tai Fung when you have Ping's?

Since my mom would like to have noodle soup and the rest of us didn't want to have pho again, we picked this place based on its location close to the light rail Chinatown station. When we entered the restaurant, the female owner was not...very friendly to us and acted quite bossy. She told us to be seated (without further instruction) and she would figure out how to accommodate our party of six. Three customers sitting at a table beside our assigned table and just paid their bill. Instead of waiting until they left, she started to move their table toward ours. From our later conversation with her, she said she was very exhausted after a day of work, so ..... (no formal apologies). I fully understood restaurant business could be energy consuming, especially for the elderly, but customers should be treated with basic respect and appreciation. In front of us she complained about her frustration and inability of communication with her employees. Again, if you cannot take the heat in the kitchen, you should stay out of it!! After we were seated, another table of customers came in. Our orders were taken first and smoothly. The people of the other table, however, were indecisive and took much longer time to complete their order. Did we get our food first? The answer is NO!! As to food quality, they were just about average if not better. The scallion pancake was burnt on several pieces. Our two orders of dumplings were not served on two separate plates. According to the female owner, it was so close to the closing time, so they were served on the same plate. She suggested that we should be able to tell which dumplings they were based on their look. The only good thing about this place would be their male owner. When he saw my dad was using his handheld fan, he turned on the electrical fan for our table. Oh, I forgot to mention their AC didn't make us feel very. comfortable. In my opinions if the two elderly owners could not find a way to improve their service and food quality, very likely this place will be out of business in the near future.More

Everyone in Seattle seems to love din Tai Fung. Ping's is better and in an area that is more grungy Seattle. Delicious dumplings. Would recommend for anyone who is visiting Seattle. Right by Century Link Field.
