Ding Dong, it’s Time: A Review of Ching Chong

Ching Chong is a Chinese restaurant that has both fans and skeptics. The food is quite delicious. However, the prices are too high for what you get, and the service can be slow and unresponsive. The ambience is nothing special, but it's clean and comfortable enough to have a meal in.

What we don’t like

  • The prices of the food items are way too high for the quality delivered.
  • Service is not up to par

Today, I’m here to give you a taste of Ching Chong – the restaurant that gathered themselves as many fans as it has skeptics. Now, I’m not saying that Ching Chong is downright bad, but let’s just say that there are far better Chinese restaurants in town.

But before you dismiss it entirely, let’s take a closer look. I’ll start with the positives, move on to the negatives, and end with a ray of hope. So, if you’re still reading, stick around. I’ll give you the lowdown on what you can expect from Ching Chong.

Taste: The Real China Extreme

So, what’s the best aspect of Ching Chong? The food, that is…  at least most of it, is pretty good!

Ching Chong’s Chicken Chow Mein Noodles are the stuff of dreams! Imagine soft, slurpy noodles dancing with juicy grilled chicken shreds, all coated in a delectable sauce. Your taste buds will harmonize as you chow down after just a bite.

And let’s not forget the headliner – Manchurian Chicken with Gravy. It’s what legends are made of. Tender chicken pieces marinated and grilled to perfection with a  rich, savory gravy that will make you go wild. You’ll be licking your fingers off! 

Next was the Chicken Chilli with Gravy is fiery and flavorful. Juicy chicken pieces are slow-cooked to perfection and swim in a tempting veggie gravy. You won’t be able to resist this mouthwatering goodness! It will have you sopping it up with every last grain of rice.

Speaking of rice, don’t miss out on their Egg Fried Rice – fluffy rice stir-fried with eggs to create a heavenly combination that’ll leave you feeling like a satisfied foodie. It has enough rice to feed a small army (or two to four hungry people, depending on how hungry you are).

Price: Not So Ching Ching

Now, what jolts your experience into a spiraling nose dive is the pricing. None of the dishes had an oomph to be priced the way it was. Here check them out below:

  • Chicken Chow Mein Noodles Family Box: PKR 1,575
  • Manchurian Chicken With Gravy – Large: PKR 1,078.34
  • Chicken Chilli With Gravy – Large: PKR 1,075
  • Egg Fried Rice Family Box: PKR 998.34

See what I’m talking about! I’ll let you be the judge.

Service: Are You Serious?

Unfortunately, Ching Chong’s service, too, is not up to par with its food. The waiters and waitresses are slow, unresponsive, and often clueless about their menus. If standing in line isn’t your thing, then don’t worry! FoodPanda delivery is available to rescue you from the waiting game.

Ambience: Okay-Okay

Located in Block 16 Gulistan-e-Johar, Ching Chong is quite a humble restaurant. It’s nothing fancy, but it’s clean and tidy enough to be safe for families and couples looking for a quick bite or a relaxing evening out. Unfortunately, there isn’t much to say about the ambience, but at least it’s not bad.

Honorable Mentions: Sipping it Slow

Are you feeling thirsty, my fellow foodies? Let’s talk about the quench-worthy drinks at Ching Chong! All for just PKR 291.

First up, we have the Red Dragon – a light and sweet sparkling drink with clear red berries that’ll make you feel like you’re sipping on liquid gold. It’s so delicious, you’ll want to breathe fire like a real dragon!

Next, we have the Blue Phoenix – a refreshing and beautiful blueberry drink with a hint of medicinal Chinese guarana. It’s not too sweet and not too tangy – just the perfect balance of flavors to quench your thirst and awaken your senses. You’ll feel like a mythical creature soaring through the skies with each sip!

And last but not least, we have the Shanghai Green – a refreshing and fizzy lemonade that’s not too sweet, so it’ll perfectly complement your full belly after devouring Ching Chong’s scrumptious dishes. It’s like a cool breeze on a hot summer day – refreshing, invigorating, and oh-so-satisfying.

Final Verdict

So there you have it, folks! Ching Chong might not be the fanciest restaurant in Karachi, but their food is definitely worth a try. Don’t believe me? Go ahead and take a bite – I dare you!
