Our server was fast and courteous! Food was amazing.
Great menu and great drink list. Food was meh, compared to all the Asian choices around. Wakamono across the street is one of my favorite sushi places, so i keep wanting Ping Pong to be better than it is. There are several very good items on the menu, so if you know what to order and what to skip, you can make this work. Steamed fish was really salty and not spicy at all, despite having the 'spicy' designation. One dish came with a strip of cellophane in it, so it is unclear how much stuff is simply microwaved rather than made fresh.
Very consistent in their approach. Great food, nice ambiance, friendly staff, good people watching
Very crowded table placement, but good food and attentive service
Great food. Great atmosphere. Love coming here for dinner every time I am in Chicago. Best food ever. Always flavorful and creative. The calamari appetizer saves my life every time
Service was top notch
It was wonderful and we all loved the food and environment. We’ll be back.
A very nice Asian experience!the food is very high quality and the cocktails are superb.
The Pan-Asian cuisine here is the best I've had in the year I've lived in Chicago! Their cocktails are *excellent* - I loved my Mexican Mai Tai. The scallion pancakes were very good, and my eggplant and pork dish was satisfying and the portion was generous. We'll be back!
Ping Pong is fantastic!
Terrific food great service will be back soon
Always solid and offers health options. The gold standard in our neighborhood for 20 years
Everything was good; not exceptional, but good. Service was good, food was good, the ambiance was actually nice on the inside. I would only recommend this place to people in the neighborhood but I wouldn't recommend anyone come from elsewhere, it's not that great. They don't take reservations on weekends over the phone, btw, but they do take reservations made on OpenTable, which is something I figured out after much talk with the person on the phone.
Food and service were fantastic! Very good value for the price. The only thing is that the restaurant can get a little bit loud when full.
Great atmosphere great food
My boyfriend used to live in San Francisco and said this is the best Asian food he's had anywhere outside SF. Excellent service in a great atmosphere.
Everything about this place is amazing. Get the sweet potato roll, dan dan noodles and scallion pancakes. AMAZING! And great for carry out, too.
Good food and cool ambiance- they were very short staffed and the waitresses seemed stressed as a result. It took a long time to get service. Not sure if that was just a one time issue! Otherwise wonderful experience. Lots of good plates to share!
Service is consistently attentive and friendly. There are many good choices on the menu. I highly recommed the Quinoa Chicken Bowl, the steamed dumplings, and the Brussels sprouts.
The atmosphere is nice and open.
Staff always have a smile.
Good, fresher ingredients, and lighter sauces than most Asian restaurants
Noodles tasted like ketchup was poured on them. Yuck.
Delicious! Unexpected delights in taste and ambience. Service was excellent.
We went on a busy Valentine's Day at 8:30. Staff were busy, but drinks arrived promptly and once our order was taken, it came out of the kitchen hot and timely. Very accommodating staff (we're vegan and had a few changes on the Wild Mushroom dish). Strong, tasty drinks. Good variety of Chinese food. Beautiful restaurant.
Ping Pong has a large and varied menu. There are multiple options for vegetarians And many of the dishes are available either with meat choices or tofu or seitan. The staff is very friendly and it has a cozy atmosphere.
Extensive menu in noisy atmosphere. Cheerful and attentive service. The two entrees we chose were a pile of noodles with skimpy veggies and unseasoned seafood in one and indifferent seasoning in the tofu... Maybe fewer dishes would be a better choice for this neighborhood place!
Timeless...Ping Pong will always impress. I’m very grateful for this neighborhood icon.
One of our very favorite neighborhoods, not just in Lakeview but in all of Chicago. We take all of our guests from out of town, and everyone LOVES this place. Great in the summer for the patio and all year round, great food and service.
Delicious food and friendly staff in a cozy comfortable setting.
Good wine and food but the staff is a bit all over the place.
The service was great and the food was tasty!
Great atmosphere and food!
We loved our meal at Ping Pong - a variety of delicious asian cuisines are on the menu, and we will definitely be back to try more. Our favorite was the roast duck with hoisin gravy, and string beans. Yum!
Fantastic as always. Love this place.
Friends birthday dinner and it was amazing. This is my favorite restaurant in the city. The food is to die for. Never disappoints. Staff is the best. Great drinks and ambiance.
Great service and food! Get the crab rangoons!
Drinks were fun and delicious. Food was outstanding, even the warmed up leftovers two days later. I also loved the fortune cookies!
Always love coming to Ping Pong for a nice ambience, attentive service and my favorite cocktail: Bitter Fortune.
Delicious and exciting menu, friendly and knowledgeable staff, and a fun environment make for a great dining experience!
Great food and ambiance! This is a gem in Lakeview.
Went with old friends. Food was great. Way too loud to have a conversation though. Usually we go during the week and no problem, but this was a Saturday night, so it was louder. Still enjoy this convenient neighborhood spot we can walk to. Love the sweet potato maki, and the wonderful chocolate dipped fortune cookies! We will be back!
