HORRIBLE delivery experience. Took almost two hours. Called twice, first time promised it would arrive in 10-20 minutes (after already waiting an hour); it didn't. Second call was to the manager who offered no apology and no consideration

I've been going to Ping Pong since they opened, the food is very good. I've never had a bad meal. I recently moved back into town and I have to say that although the place is larger and the decor has changed, the food is still very good

I have been going to ping pong since it first opened and only had 4 tables, and I have known the owner for the entire time, there were always little quirky policies and rules about things they would not do at ping pong, nothing important

Although Ping Pong has had its ups and downs ...the quality of the food was never an issue until tonight! My partner and I ordered dishes that we have had numerous times. What we ended up being served served was inedible chicken parts

The food would be good if they used less sugar. The manager is really rude and mean. Many of my friends have avoided the restaurants because the manager talks to customers in a condescending and insulting manner.

I've been to Ping Pong three times now with friends, and enjoyed the food every time, but each time the service was awful. The wait staff each time were hanging out in the back chatting, fluffing their hair, and trying to look "cool" in spite of people staring and waving at them from the tables. Each time when we finally got our food, our server disappeared for the rest of the visit. To get additional drinks or items we had to walk up to the bar or host to request them. My suggestion is to dump the "pretty boy/girl trendy 20's" servers and put some friendly attentive people on the floor. I'd rather be served by a competent server than someone that's trying to play "the scene".

That being said, if you can put up with the "bimbo" quotient, the food is excellent and interesting.

Pros: Excellent food, fun atmosphere, reasonable prices

Cons: Wait staff can't be bothered with you...

The restaurant cancelled our order because they siad we were outside their delivery zone. We are clearly in their delivery zone. The manager was rude and hung up on me. Not a place where customer service is a priority. Eat there at own risk.

Yes, there are long waits here, but it's a great Broadway scene and excellent, reasonably priced food. The egg rolls are excellent, as are the rest of the appetizers. Good people watching, and good food

I have only ordered takeout food from Ping Pong. After seeing great reviews I wanted to try the food but didn't want to hassle with the long wait times. When I called up the person on the phone sounded like they were standing in the middle of a huge crowd - impossible to hear. The delivery took quite a while and my lemon chicken was like 8 parts lemon to one part chicken. They did have a free appetizer special with a delivery order but I still don't think it was worth it.

They use sugar in the Hot & Sour Soup, Tuna Appetizer, Cucumber Salad! I'm sure of this. It's not tasty at all. Their Pod Thai was mediocre; Bulgogi only so-so. They offer absurd chocolate Fortune Cookies. There is nothing authentic at this place. It's all show, no go.

The food was great, but service and delivery brings a cast upon this restaurant. It took them nearly two hours for them to deliver my food when I was only about four blocks away. I have taken for my friends there to eat and they love the place, but the service is awful. It seems they think high and mighty of themselves losing the definition of providing"customer service". I would not recommend. Just cross the street and go to Joy's Noodle they are as good as Ping Pong.

I've ordered from pingpong before and enjoyed their food, but I have a big problem with the recent service I received when trying to place a late take-out order. According to all the information I've seen (including here on CitySearch), they are open until midnight. I called at 10:45pm on a weeknight to place a carry out order and was initially told they were closed. When I mentioned that I thought that they were open until midnight, there was a bit of a pause by the order-taker and then he said they were "out of food" for the evening. If you're trying to avoid orders to close early, then just tell the truth instead of making up a ludicrous excuse.

Fabulous food! Interesting and varied menu. Definitely a great spot for a nice evening when you can sit outside and enjoy a bottle of wine (its BYOB, even better!). The restaurant is really small so there can be a wait, but its worth it. My friend and I absolutely loved the restaurant!

We're obsessed with Ping Pong. They're expanding we hear so we're excited about that. The dishes are unique and very flavorful. Prices aren't too bad either. You can't get anything better if you like asian food.

This is a sleek little Thai (& other Asian cuisine) restaurant. The food is great and reasonably priced. There are a good number of clearly-labelled vegetarian dishes. The decor is fabulous and modern -- something somewhat lacking in many other Boystown eateries. And the restaurant is open till a reasonable hour (midnight), also a welcome relief from the early closings so common in Chicago. The staff are helpful, too.

We were blown away! I had a cicken dish with veggies/ ginger on soft very thin egg noodle. My husband loved the lo mein. Normally lo mein does not have much flavor but this one is a differant story. Sitting outside and watching poeple go by on a nice summer night was wonderful. The review was right. they also have the best crab rangoon. Desert was green tea ice cream that was aslo great. Very inexpensive. $7.95 for the lo mein and 8.95 for mine. BYOB This is now one of my very favarite places. The food is even better than the much more expensive places. PING PONG was a real find.

Oh I have to write in and say that pingpong has amazing food. The sashimi tuna dip is the best food in the world. Seriously. In the world. Everything is so fresh and yummy. And I have had nothing but great service there as well. Did I mention that the sashimi tuna is the best food in the world?

Great food, great service, unique decor. Fun place to eat in the summer & people-watch. The servers always are very friendly and helpful, with the entire staff always watching over your table, not just one. Also great for carry-out and delivery

A small little place with a good overall menu. The food is good and consistent. The prices aren't bad and the service is good. There are no outstanding items on the menu but that's okay because it doesn't seem to be what they are going for. It's one step down from 4 stars and two steps up from fast food. You decide what that means for you. Avoid the sushi it doesn't make you want to vomie but it's not really their gig. The Wasbi noodles are good.

Pingpong has a great energy, awesome food and a staff that seems to love working there. They pay a lot of attention to detail. It has really become part of the neighborhood and strives to continue to be one of the leaders in the Lakeview restaurant scene.

Great place to have delicious Asian food...
for a small place there is a lot to choose from and it is always favored just right... space maybe limited, but they will take your cell phone number and call you when your table is ready... but most of the time I am seated immediately, I guess it depends on when you go there...

PingPong has great food that is well presented and is priced well for the portion. Carryout is also available which makes dining on their excellent food easier as the restraunt's diningroom is somewhat small. Would recommend to anyone who enjoys pan-Asian cuisine.

Simple and stylish decor with tasty and elegant food presentation, this place is small but that's what gives it the charm. Higly recommended to enjoy some good thai cusine with a couple of friends.

Don't expect much after the nicely done interior and cute punk-asian waiters. After taking the first bite, my dining partner and I looked up at each other and said, "this is too salty". If we weren't so hungry, we both would have sent back our everything fried rice and peapod beef. I tried this place when it first opened and the food was inedible. That was quite a while ago and they haven't improved much.

I will admit at first glance the place is very cute. However, the tasteless food, the long wait, the crowded talbes and the bad service are not worth it. Sorry it was a good try but not for me
