Our second visit in just a few weeks and we really like this place. The menu is short and so everything is done very well. The mix of flavours and spice is just spot on – it's great place for a quick bite with good service. Oh and the cocktails are fab!

Kelley & Ping is one of my all-time favorites, I've been coming here since they opened. Fantastic menu, vibe, always excellent. Sad to be moving out of state now but I'll definitely be back whenever I visit! They deserve eight stars!!

Kelley and Ping has always been a go to place for me- that is super affordable and wonderfully consistent cuisine. It has changed decore in 20 years (probably since it opened) , and that is of comfort to me as I have had countless great meals there in the past. I recommend the summer rolls, and the Malaysian curry.

A favorite when in Soho. Great cocktails- try the Ginger Mint or the Tamarind Whisky Sour- and low-key relaxing vibe. Feels a bit like being on vacation. Favorite dishes are the Pad Sew Yew, Bulgogi and sautéed string beans.

I had my 50th birthday celebration at Kelley and Ping. Emily did an amazing job helping me to plan a celebration dinner for my friends. The staff was so nice, warm and friendly.
The food was delicious! It was amazing to have so many gluten free options for my guests and I to choose from.
I would throw another large family style gathering there in a heart beat!

Food was so so but service was very good, ambience is great (I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt that no air conditioning was purposefully recreating the Vietnamese climate). I'd like to try again for lunch.
Delectable , Delicious, Dining
Always enjoyed lunch at K&P - recently discovered they slso serve dinner. The restaurant takes on a completely new look - romantic low lighting , very friendly helpful table service and the food is so wonderful. I tried the Pork Chop served over fine noodles - amazing! The Pad Thia of course Top Ten. A perfect informal dinner and it's in my neighborhood . Oh yes, order the Spring Rolls.
Refreshingly Low Key
After shopping in the area, we found this lovely spot with pan-Asian cuisine. I am a big fan of Thai, Korean, Vietnamese, and the food was absolutely delicious. We had a pad thai and the crispy duck served on a bed of greens, all very well seasoned and not greasy at all. The bento box appetizer didn't need the sticky rice in my opinion, but the other 3 items were great.
The space is nicely decorated, with a modern vibe mixed with not so traditional Asian art. Service was attentive and prompt, but it was a quiet night, only a few tables occupied at 8pm.
The wine list could use revamping: the wines are only listed by variety, no provenance or name of producers. I thought it would take too long to ask, so I ordered a very good cocktail and my husband had a beer.
Fit for foodies at an outstanding value!
The ambiance of this Pan-Asian cafeteria-style restaurant is really amazing, I come here every time I'm in NewYork. My favourite is the Ped Makham, a crispy boneless duck glazed with Soy, ginger and tamarind - simply wonderful! Good prices for Soho.
No. Just no. ANYWHERES else.
Unfortunately, despite the good location and adequate decor, they stopped short on food and drinks. My lychee mojito tasted like mint water (which I like, don't get me wrong, but not for $14). Our appetizer was dumplings and they were overcooked, mushy, without flavor of any kind. The main course was chicken plainer than you'd find on an airplane. The meat quality was low, which might have been hidden beneath you know, flavor, but no. Do not recommend.

Stopped here for a great dinner the night before the New York City bike tour with my brother, his wife and my niece. My niece is vegan, I am vegetarian and my brother would basically eat anything. And everything. It was just what we wanted! There's something on the menu for absolutely everyone, from gluten-free to carnivore. The food was delicious, and our waitress really catered to my niece, which I greatly appreciate. You could really order anything here and it would be superb.
Nestled off a side street in SoHo, we were delighted to find this restaurant after hanging out the Children's Museum of Art about a 1/2 mile away. The menu had a very nice selection of various Thai, Vietnamese, Japanese and Chinese dishes. The kids menu also was great and kids eat free on certain days which is even better (we had to remind our server at the end of the meal regarding this offer). The 4 adults and 2 children in our party enjoyed a variety of flavors including Salmon with a curry sauce, noodles, satay, tempura, and crispy duck.
took a group of nine people here on last minute notice and the staff was very kind and helpful.
food is GREAT as are the drinks (watch out, they sneak up on you!). But sometimes the service can be slow, depending on where in the room you end up sitting.
Has gone downhill -food and service
Food-All apps were good, but mains were awful. The chicken was so salty!!
Service-And as cute as our waiter was, he lacked customer service skills and totally messed up our order.
On top if all that, be careful of front tables. My menu fell so I leaned over to pick it up and whacked my head into the shelving next to the table. I've had a headache now for two days.
So many other places to go that I'd never go back.
Average Food, Smelly
Very average food that comes out in 4 minutes after ordering. This is definitely not the same taste or quality food it used to be.
The restaurant had no ventilation and smelled bad inside. Dining was extremely hot and uncomfortable. I wouldn't return.
Asian with a difference
We had an amazing time at Kelley and Ping's. We were a large group where all our friends showed up at different times. The staff was very accommodating and took our various orders as we came in.
The Thai street food they offer is absolutely divine. Everything was cooked to perfection.
We especially enjoyed the ambience and decor of the space - something very eclectic and made to look like an old-fashioned diner in Hong Kong (I think).
Late Night Spot
I went here with my boyfriend at 9:15 and we almost had the entire place to ourselves. The cocktails are a little quirky, but they are yummy. The menu is fairly limited, but we enjoyed everything (seafood pasta for me and cashew chicken for him). I LOVED the environment, it looked like an ancient Asian restaurant. Would definitely go back!
Good food, poor service
The food here is always interesting and tasty, but the service was really bad. We were one of a handful of tables and they brought 3 of our 5 meals together and then didn't acknowledge we were missing 2. We had to call the waiter over and ask and then about 10 mins (seriously) later they brought 1 dish and still said nothing about the other. Finally we got the 5th but it was a bit ridiculous. They also didn't offer us free drinks or dessert of take off an entree or something. It was both the waiter and the hostess (or whoever the woman was who was standing around) so seemed to not want to deal with the situation. Very odd.
Kelly and Ping... Fantastic!
This is a fantastic place. The environment makes you feel you are in Vietnam or in Southern China. At the same time, it is a fabulous NYC gem that only could be in Soho. The food is extraordinary and simple. The service is quick, efficient and extremely friendly. Do not miss the Chinese broccoli, or any of their delicious, chicken-based dishes. This is a great place if you are hungry, don't want to wait on lines. This is the kind of place in which you eat fabulously well, have a great conversation with friends or family, and then you go away after an hour. It is not the kind of place for a date or for something that merits more time. The have a good tea selection and their Japanese sakee is great. This place is very popular among locals.
