It has yet to be announced by the Gold Coast resort, but they have something to shout about this weekend. Ping Pang Pong, one of Las Vegas’ most beloved and busy Chinese restaurants has very quietly moved into its brand new space and is open for business.
The old location has closed and is directing guests eastwards on the casino floor to the larger new home on the site of the former Gold Coast showroom.
Diners will be greeted by two Chinese guardian lion statues and the knowledge it will be easier to find a seat inside a dining room with an upgraded maximum occupancy of 301. The makeover fills 5,749 square feet and was built with an estimated $3.1 million construction budget.
So far, the menu and opening hours are exactly the same, serving lunch and dim sum from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m and dinner from 5 p.m. to 3 a.m. The open plan design features Chinese lanterns, a roomier and softer lit dining room and servers taking orders on handheld electronic devices.
Created by Kevin and Karrie Wu in 2001, they also debuted Noodle Exchange at the resort in 2009, still open daily across from the new entrance to Ping Pang Pong.
