the dim sum is pretty decent. Ping's specializes in seafood. However, as with any Chinatown joint, be prepared to sit next to strangers, feel rushed, and deal with servers who do NOT speak english. As a manhattan dim sum place goes, Ping's is reliable. The best dim sum I've ever had in the tri-state area, however, was over in flushing, queens. My only time there for dim sum, and i have no idea where my friends took me, but we waited 30 minutes to get in, and it was amazing. Go explore your dim sum in Flushing if you have time. Otherwise, Ping's is a solid Chinatown joint (unless you want to head uptown, pay three times as much, and have tasty clean dim sum at Shun Lee Cafe).
Pros: solid, reliable, good food
