I have been coming here for years. Just love the food. I've had huge bday parties or just intimate more personal dinners with friends many times.
Lunch time it's similar to when you order on the streets in Asia... you order and they scream at you when it's done... except I know they washed the dishes here. def. try the malaysian or bangkok curry noodles or the duck broth with duck and wontons.
Dinner time it's dim lighting. sometimes too dark.
BUT I love the duck salad, scallion pancakes, and s&p shrimp (even though they fry it with the shell ~ eat it while it's hot), bulgogui, ribs, tamarind duck, massaman curry is good, but I liked it with the chicken and avacado, love the chicken with this papaya salad. cocktails are really good too.
I pretty much love everything. the only thing is the kitchen is opened so the smell of food kind of lingers in my hair, but a spray of perfume usually gets rid of it. one time I went out and this guy said... you smell like food and making me hungry!!!! hahaha
oh, and there's only one bathroom... sooo wait in line... def makes sure you lock the door. I'm not sure if they fixed it, but I always open the door on someone... can't get enough of this place.

This past Sunday, late and hungry, I had to get some snacks for a SuperBowl Party. While walking down my friend's street looking for a place to buy pizza, I saw this place. If it weren't for my previous PARTY commitment, I'd have stayed the night for another hot toddy, beer and whatever great GIANT bowl of soup the bartender picked for me. Something with the word Malasya in it.
It warmed me up while I waited for the AWESOME scallion pancakes and spring rolls I took to the party.
The Saints were not the only ones to score that night.

I just have to say for the price, this is about the worst Asian food I ever had in my life. The dumplings were ALL dumpling and a sliver of shrimp inside... and their pricey calamari salad was a small bowl of lettuce with some sliver of carrots, drenched in dressing, and some small overcooked fried gross calamari. I am completely amazed that this place was busy, thinking the location is what is saving this establishment from utter ruin. One word: YUK!

Had dinner on a Saturday night with a group of about 10 people. We were seated right away and drink orders were taken immediately. Our group shared about 15 dishes in total and it was the perfect amount of food for everyone. Wine menu was limited but well chosen, and their cocktails were that lethal combination of tasty and potent. The best thing about Kelley and Ping was the excellent service. Our food arrived quickly and our glasses were never empty yet we never felt rushed and were perfectly comfortable lingering over our after dinner drinks. We would definitely go there again!
This place isn't amazing, but by all means not as bad as the reviews portray it. I can't help but say that their Vietnamese noodles are some of my favorite. Always filling, generally quick delivery, reasonable prices. Their pad thai, on the other hand, is unusually disgusting.
Asian food is my forte. This place does not serve it. It had its time 10 years ago, and it has passed.
Rude, Rude staff.
Poor service! No wait staff. Do it yourself, service, like in a college cafeteria yet exorbitant prices. Not very clean.
Go to PEEP nearby at 177 Prince, if you want tasty authentic pan-Asian food.

Don't waste your calories, time or money. Three of us went there last night and should have been suspicious that there was no wait at 8pm on Friday night. We ordered the sampler appetizer plate - which was fine, boring, but nothing wrong with it. Then we each ordered an entre - a chicken dish which was supposed to have broccoli but only had a few stems, it tasted like chinese food not thai food and might have had msg given the headache it gave my friend - a veggie pad thai in which the noodles were undercooked and the flavor was so bizarre it might have had fake maple syrup in it- and a red curry in banana leaf which also had a very strange flavor I have never had before and never want to have again, red curry flavor was no where to be found. I don't blame the waiter, he was new and clueless but the horrible food wasn't his fault. I have no idea what is going on in that kitchen but I can promise you I will not be going back! YUCK!

I've been twice. The first time around it was ok (somewhat soggy noodles). The second time however it was so bad I haven't been back since. Totally crowded, overworked woman at the counter, they lost my order. 15 minutes after placing my order I went up asking about it- they didn't even apologize for losing it and another 10 minutes I finally got my lousy SOUP!! it was a SOUP, broth and noodles in a cup for $9, sorry, I will go to Cafe Duke's for cheaper and better noodle soup that actually has vegetables in it!
