It used to be very good food with attentive servce. Visited this past weekend. Food was edible, small portion. Service was chinatown service...dessert was canned pineapple, no fresh oranges as many chinatown restaurants serve.

pings seafood is probably the best for dim sum it is worth to go to.

Nothing special about this typcial Chinatown restaurant. Dim sum was above average in terms of freshness and complexity, but the main dishes were overpriced and bland. The dim sum menu was limited. The service and decor were standard, although the waiters were very responsive to our requests. Not worth a special trip to the neighborhood, but ok if you are in the area.

Come here for fresh dim sum although some days the selection isn't that expansive. The service is good too. Try the shark's fin soup, especially on weekdays when it's value priced.

I stumbled upon this place not knowing what I was getting myself into. The service was great, but the food mediocre. There were a few things I thought were good, but not enough to win me over. We had dim sum here and ordered the seafood chow mein (cantonese style). I didn't find anything special about it to command such a price, except that the seafood was very fresh. The bill came and it was $50 for 2 of us...we didn't have much, so not much of a value. At the rate of $50 for dim sum, I am with at least 3 other guests elsewhere.

The restaurant is nice looking and clean, so it is a nicer place to meet w/ friends. The prices are a higher than other places in Chinatown, the food is OK and the food orders came at a snail's pace. One of our orders didn't arrive until the end, b/c apparently they forgot to make it or some sort of mixup in the kitchen. The crispy chicken was somewhat dry, but it was a good sized portion. The fried rices are good, too. The seafood mix in taro nest actually came in a cheap greasy looking TACO BOWL, much to our surprise. When we pointed that out to the waiter, he then told us that they no longer had taro nests and hadn't had them for a while. All in all, it was a good experience, but I wouldn't suggest going to Ping's for the food. It's a good place to go if you want to get a little dressed up, meet & chat w/ your friends, while you wait an hour for your food to arrive.

Pings has the most delicious dim sum in New York. The restaurant is much smaller than many dim sum places in the city, which makes the food fresher and allows them to serve it more quickly. The service is a notch above other chinatown restaurants and the cleanliness of the restaurant is better than any other chinatown restaurant.
