Because this restaurant is sited some way out of Xlendi (on the Victoria road) you might well miss it. We spotted it from the bus, and went to investigate. You won't get a harbour view from here, but you will appreciate the way the outside tables are on a balcony suspended above the valley floor, with a view all the way down to Xlendi and the sea!
The place is run by two young chefs, from China and Southern India, so menus from BOTH countries are presented to your table. Service is exceptionally friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the food so much we returned for a second meal a few days later. Do give it a try!

Ping herself runs this fine restaurant as well as Pings on the new road to Xlendi.
Both are well run.
Our favourite is the one near Xlendi, which also serves excellent Indian cuisine.
Superb views of the valley into Xlendi bay.
Both are great spots forSunday lunch at reasonable prices.
Delicata wine served was particularly excellent.

On seeing all these exceltent comments we decided that we should try Ping . I was very disappointated , starting with the menu it looked very unproffesional . So we decided to try the buffet seeing that it looked very nice , so we started to eat some thing from the buffet , the taste was nice but the food wasent warm at all starting with the soup to chicken satay. We ordered extra pancakes for the ducks , to our disappointment we were only served pancakes , no veg . Finishing off , how it started i came to note that there was only fried icecream for desert. We asked for the bill and the drinks were very expensive , 2 diet cokes costed 4.80euros thats 2.40 each. Not recommended at all

This week, we visited Gozo twice and had lunch each time at Ping's Dining in Victoria. We had Mapo Tofu, Mouthwatering Chicken, spicy fish and other excellent dishes. The chef Bo Bo knew we were coming for the second time and prepared some surprises for us. He was very charming and friendly to our 6 year old boy who savored all dishes. You should know that my lady is from Xinjiang, China, an excellent cook herself, and knows the diffreence between good and very good dishes. We tried other Chinese restaurants in Malta, the Master Wok in Mellieħa (mediocre quality) and Peking in Bugibba (worse, old noodles, too much fat). We can only recommend the Blue Room in Valletta as well. Too bad that we could not visit the owner's other restaurant in Xlendi, Gozo, but we were simply too well fed from lunch that we skipped dinner.

On our four night stay in Gozo, we, the four of us, ate in Ping's on two of those nights. On our first visit we all agreed that we should eat there again, preferably when they had a buffet. I'm a vegetarian, one of us was a real meat eater, and the remaining two regular diners. I ordered a Tofu dish on our first night and it was delicious -- the best I've ever had. On second night I ordered a cauliflower dish with rice and it also was excellent; second only to the Tofu.

I don't remember what others ate - let them write their own reviews if they desire - but they all said the food was excellent. Although the restaurant is a bit out of the way; i.e., not in the town center, it's very easy to get to. Just head on in southerly direction on the main street from the central Victoria square, drive (or walk) about 1 km (3/4 mile) and you're there, on the left.
