Took 3 days to get my money back on a tip I didn't authorize on my American Express card. Cash only from now on

Food is bland and although they give you allot, I would not recommend trying to finish it unless you want to be on the toilet the rest of the afternoon. They also double charged my card and when I called them about it, I was told that they did not, even though I was looking at my online bank statement... More

We go here in the evenings. Our children love it. I read the other reviews and wonder if they've changed cooks. Our food was good, the kids love the sweet and sour chicken and the crab Rangoon was very good.

The food is OK but the customer service is the worst I have encountered! The phone person had been rude before, but I thought that perhaps she had had a bad day. Today some of my co-workers and I decided to try them again. The woman on the phone was so rude and obnoxious that she sealed the deal for... More

It was a coin toss between this and another Asian restaurant across the street. The food was just okay. While nothing about the restaurant was bad, nothing really stuck out as unique or amazing to me. Sort of a bland Chinese food restaurant

The worst Chinese food I have ever eaten in my entire life. The woman on the phone was really nice so I had high hopes. The sweet and sour chicken is actually fried chicken fingers and comes with a side of sweet and sour sauce. It was absolutely terrible. It was equally as bad as the crab rangoon, which were... More

Your not going to get china or metal utensils but the food and portions were great and cheap. It was really late and I didn't feel like driving in to town so this was quick and easy.

I had under cooked food that was over spiced. The lady at the counter was very rude to me when I asked some questions about what I was ordering. I not only saw this but saw her yell at another customer for not liking his food. This place is a joke, stay away unless you want something bad to eat.

I went to Ping Pong Cafe today based on reviews and the fact that their Hot & Sour Soup has no pork in it. I placed my order - waited about ten minutes and drove off to my hotel. When I unpacked my meal they had given me the wrong item. I called and they agreed to come to my... More

Portions are generous, unfortunately food tastes the same. It is cafeteria style service so you move down the line and tell the server what you want on the plate or in the styroform to-go container. Was not pleased with the food.
