Being from the land of Americanized Chinese delivery/take-out, we're often wary of other regions' takes on what we consider a staple of our diet. Ping's, however, seldom disappoints. The hot & sour soup is excellent, the sushi very good, and the main dishes on par with what I'm used to. Every now and then there'll be something SLIGHTLY off, but it's not a deterrent, and we may drop in twice over the course of our visits to town.
That said, something needs to be done about the song. Not "the music," as that would imply variety. However, there is only ONE song played in here, on a constant loop. It starts out with a sound effect of water swishing, a bar of "cartoon-character-sneaking-up-on-someone" music, more water swishing, more cartoon music, and so on. You know it if you've heard it. And there is no attempt at modulating the volume based on the number of people dining (i.e. you can be the only one in the restaurant, and the volume is at the level you'd expect for a crowded, conversation-filled room.) It gets almost comical, where after the 8th or 9th time hearing it, everyone at your table is ready to react with choreography to a certain surge in the lead synthesizer. It sounds trivial, but verges on waterboarding. The periodic dimming and flickering of the lights also has me wondering about the wiring.
Anyway, love the food, love Zoe the Waitress, and we'll always be back—but hope the aural assault is eliminated soon!
