Great flavorful, fresh food – Stopped in there last night for a quick bite with my wife. No booze so I bought some beer next door. The dishes were exceptional. The ingredients were fresh, tangy and cooked perfectly. Spicy without discomfort. Service is friendly, too. Trememdous portions for the money, too!
Not lifechanging but solid. – I have eaten here a few times. The value is great -- the portions are enormous. I got pad thai once and I swear it was like a vat. The food is not particularly spicy or even particularly saturated with flavor but it hits the spot when you're craving some Thai without having to go very far. I wouldn't go across town for this place, but I would and did go down the block and around the corner.
bad sticky rice and spring rolls – my office moved to the neighborhood recently and i've been craving thai - the reviews here made me think to try viang ping.
i ordered some spring rolls and sticky rice to go. you know how thai spring rolls are usually lightly fried, crisp pockets of fresh veggies and glass noodles? not these. they tasted frozen and may have been fried twice to reheat. the sauce was thin and had a terrible aftertaste. i usually grab some sticky rice and dip it into sauce, but not this sauce. unfortunately, the rice was already ruined. a tiny packet of rice was wrapped in saran wrap. it must have been done a long time ago since it was hard and chewy. ugh.
i won't be going back. on the plus side, it looks like a new thai place just opened across the street on 23rd - maybe i'll try them next.
A Nice Way to End a Rainy Day – I happened upon the place by accident, trying to meet people for happy hour. No one shows up to happy hour and it's pouring outside, so I'm pissed and get food at Viang Ping down the street. The food tastes great, and the portions are BIG for the relatively CHEAP prices. Curteous staff, would definitely go again for good Thai.
