It’s rare to see incredibly popular Chinese restaurant Ping Pang Pong without a line leading out onto casino floor, but a major new upgrade at the Gold Coast should help alleviate the wait time.
Work has begun demolishing the interior of the Gold Coast’s dormant showroom to build an upgraded Ping Pang Pong inside. An earlier update mistakenly reported the existing restaurant would be demolished. During the construction work it remains business as usual at the original home, still serving lunch and dim sum from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m and dinner from 5 p.m. to 3 a.m.
The restaurant will fill 5,749 square feet, with a maximum occupancy of 301 and created with an estimated $3.1 million construction budget. Removing the showroom will leave the resort with plenty of bonus space to reconfigure and the possibility to fill the Ping Pang Pong space with a new tenant.
No timetable for completion has been announced.
Kevin and Karrie Wu created Ping Pang Pong in 2001 and added Noodle Exchange to the resort in 2009. Their Noodle Asia has been a fixture at the Venetian since 2000.
