  • Ping Pang Pong - Lunch - November 17th - 2017

    Named one of the top 10 Chinese restaurants in America by Travel + Leisure magazine, Ping Pang Pong offers an authentic and delicious dining experience, featuring specialty dishes from various provinces throughout China. From noodles, rice and vegetables, to beef, pork, poultry and seafood, Ping Pang Pong offers choices to meet every craving. And be sure to join us at lunchtime for an unforgettable dim sum experience. You’ll quickly see why Ping Pang Pong has been voted “Best Asian Restaurant in Las Vegas” six times by readers of the Las Vegas Review-Journal!

    The NEW Ping Pang Pong recently re-opened at the Gold Coast The space expanded with a $3.1 million construction budget to make room for more than 300 customers, representing a 50 percent bigger space. Before the makeover, the restaurant always had a line for customers waiting for either dim sum service or the 80-plus dishes from China.



    New to the restaurant, dark walnut screens and a Chinese pergola, making the space look more modern. Two authentic foo dog sculptures from China stand outside the entrance. Customers walk in to a host station that looks like a Chinese apothecary cabinet. Silk lanterns with red tassels hang overhead.





    The front part of the dining room features a tea service, while further back, customers get a look inside the kitchen. A private banquet room seats almost 100 guests.

    The menu remains the same. From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., dim sum dishes roam the dining room on pushcarts. More than 80 dishes from provinces throughout China are available, as are seasonal dishes such as a mango lobster scallop roll and an aromatic duck bun with southern Canton five-spice roasted pulled duck with Mandarin cucumber, served in a steamed lotus bun.





    Then from 5 p.m. to 3 a.m., the entrees roll out. Smoked orange ribeye cubes seared over a high-flame wok with peppercorn and toasted garlic and a Macanese crustacean claypot with live-tank seafood served in a ginger laksa curry broth with saffron and chopped herbs make the menu.

    Our lunch was set up by Jasen Woehrle from The Firm PR.

    We both were very impressed with the new PPP. It's roomy, tables are nicely spaced and the decor is very modern.

    Since we were there for lunch, Dim Sum was featured but the entire menu is available to order from.

    Our last visit to PPP was in 2015 and there was a lack of communication between us and the Dim Sum servers. Two years later, this didn't change. It was impossible to communicate what we wanted. The servers had to call over the managers every time we made a food request. Due to my food allergies, this made this task even harder. I could not convey to the servers that I only wanted chicken, beef or non meat Dim Sum.

    We had a variety of servers and managers attend to us, it was impossible to get everyones name. The managers were tuned into my food allergies and were very helpfull in making my selections.

    We started with Dim Sum. We selected Meatball, vegetable srpring roll, beef filled sesame ball, pork bun and what I would call a beef crepe.

    All five were very good, each with their own distinctive taste.







    We also chose from the main menu. WRINKLED STRING BEANS - High flame wok-tossed with a tarragon-like fresh Chinese herb $10.95.

    Probably the best String Bean dish ever! Perfectly cooked and full of flavor.



    Dorene ordered Chicken with Black Bean sauce. $11.95. Packed with chicken, this was another awesome dish. This was my first time tring this dish and I really liked it.

    The sauce was tasty and the chickn was super tender.




    I chose CHICKEN STIR-FRIED SOFT NOODLES (Lo Mein) $9.95. As you can see, this was a huge portion! Everything was perfect. The noodles were soft, the chicken was cooked perfectly and I felt the addition of carrots and beab sprouts melded all the othe ingredients together perfectly.



    We have never had a bad experience at Pin Pand Pong and this was the best visit by far. I think communication between servers and non Asian customers needs to be improved.

    The food speaks for itself. I don't have one bad thing to say about it. The portions are huge, big enough for two people to easily share.

    I highly recommed Ping Pang Pong.

    i had planned to visit this restaurant Christmas Eve, but there was more than an hour wait. I went tonight, after winning a little at the Gold Coast. There was no line at all, even though the casino was pretty full. It was senior day, and they had just had the drawing for the weekly money give away. I was very impressed with the authentic Chinese outfits both the hostesses and waitresses were wearing. The staff was very prompt, with somebody different delivering each part of my order, including the carry out part of my order, shrimp fried rice.....perfectly timed I must say. I ordered the seafood soft noodles, which I had ordered the last time I was there about 2 years ago. This time, they added what looked like baby calamari, about the size of a quarter. Yes, the whole beast with suction cups and heads still attached. I pushed them to the side of my plate. All 9 of them. I did eat the octopus, as I have in the past, so I was prepared for its chewiness. The shrimp, scallops and noodles were all very good. 14.95. I opted for iced guava green tea instead of a soda, and it was very good. I left there with a bill of $40 including tip, happy and full. My slight problem with the place came just a few minutes ago, when I dove into my shrimp fried rice for a late night snack. Maybe they thought I said shrimp white rice? I've never heard of such a thing. There were eggs, about 4 peas, and a few parsley flakes in it, along with the 8 medium shrimp mixed in a pile of white rice. Now I know to check my to go orders before I leave the restaurant. Even the best restaurants! I will go back, but I will try different dishes the next time. Service was excellent!

    Shrimp fried rice was 13.95, and I've gotten much better in the local strip malls for around $8.

          Okay it isn't completely white, but not what I'm used to.
