The grand opening of Miss Ping’s Thai Eatery was aptly themed: a ‘Night in Bangkok’, evoking memories of vibrant night markets, and street vendors serving up aromatic cuisine full of flavour. 

We were soon into the fun of the launch at this new Doncaster eatery, where music beats greeted our arrival along with table tennis players inviting us to a game of ‘ping pong’! It was hard to resist the dance floor, with all eyes on a Thai performer in exuberant headdress further adding to the lively atmosphere of the event. Meanwhile a generous sprinkling of celebrities didn’t go unnoticed, including several from the ‘Married at First Sight’ TV Reality Show.

Meeting the owner and brainchild of Miss Ping’s, Winnie Chiang, soon led to the sharing of a few trade secrets followed by a cooking demonstration which included her signature dipping sauce. “Good food, need not be spoken about, only eaten. Thai food, for lovers of more than food,” said ‘Miss Ping’, resonating with many Thai food fans that night.

Sampling dishes from the extensive menu, we were soon dining on dumplings, chicken skewers in peanut sauce, stir fried noodles, signature fried rice, charcoal jumbo prawns, green curry chicken, and fish cakes. Those much loved Thai flavours with a beautiful balance of flavours and spices soon gave the tastebuds a workout and had us yearning for more – especially the crowd favourites on the night –  charcoal jumbo prawns and green curry!

Apart from the amazing food, with many dishes offering a contemporary twist on traditional favourites, Miss Ping’s also boasts a bar with a great selection of wines, beers, ciders and cocktails, as well as non-alcoholic choices like mocktails and tropical juices. Then there’s the Thai Refreshing Coolers, such as Thai Tea Float and Lychee Tea. A food and drinks menu sure to be a real crowd pleaser.
