The menu is based on the classics of Asian cuisine and embellished by the bold flavors of its street food. Lunch is self-service and features soups, wok dishes and salads. The Tea Bar is the feature of the afternoon with a deep selection of Asian teas and sweets. Cocktail Hour celebrates hand-crafted drinks, artisanal liquors, Asian beers and a thoughtful selection of sake. Dinner relaxes into table service with a punchy menu that is guided by the bold and spicy flavors of Asian street food. All of this is enjoyed at home as well with our fast and free delivery service. "Old School SoHo" meets Asian Night Market, Kelley and Ping has always been both timeless and trend-setting. Join us in our journey.

    I'm from Italy and I first tried this restaurant in 2011, thanks to a friend who lives in NY. This second time was even better than I remember: food is delicious, the ambiance is very cosy and nice

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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).

    It's a great idea that's gone astray. All kinds of great asian street food, but it's gluey and tasteless and overcooked. They should keep the menu but replace every cookn the place...

    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!

    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.

    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.

    Everything was fantastic from start to finish. What blew me away the most was the duck, which I ordinarily do not like. It was fantastic. Great service, wonderful ambience; I can't wait to return!

    I've been eating here for years, throughout their transformations and different styles of dining, but the food has consistently remained very, very good.
