The PONGGROUP was founded in 2004. Since then we have been serving good Asian food to the people of Stockholm. Our ambition is to continue to develop the Asian restaurant trade in Stockholm. We currently have 18 restaurants of different types, from fast food and sushi bars to large buffet restaurants and fine dining. Here are a few words on a selection of our restaurants:
Restaurant Waipo on Drottninggatan in the heart of Stockholm offers an extremely affordable Chinese fine dining. We serve authentic flavored Chinese cuisine with an international touch. In China a restaurant visit is a social event – you meet many others, eat different dishes and remain for a long time. We want to show our guests what social dining can be like. Our dishes are served in tapas format to make it easier for two people to share the food and dine more socially. Waipo (waeipo) means grandmother in Chinese, which fits very well with our concept. It should feel like coming home to grandma at the family dinner. Restaurant Waipo is listed in the food guide Sweden’s Best Tables and was named Sweden’s best Chinese restaurant at the Asian Curry Awards in 2013.
PONG Lindhagen is one of our newest restaurants and is currently also our largest. We can serv up to 400 people. The restaurant offers sushi, thai dishes, chinese Dim Sum and other hot and cold asian specialities. We also offer Korean Barbeque, where you grill your food yourself in your table. You buy a basic package of rice and sauces and then choose the ingredients you want to grill. You put together your own menu.
PONG Skrapan is in the Skrapan building in Södermalm, Stockholm – it is a first-class Asian restaurant that serves a lunch and dinner buffet and Asian food à la carte. Brunch is also served at the weekend. Together with Imperiet, we have a lounge, a relaxed place for you to meet your friends and take a coctail in the bar.
PONG Henriksdal on Hammarbyhamnen offers without doubt the best harbourside hangout in the city. Eat our tasty Asian buffet in a modern Asian atmosphere. In the summer, our outdoor tables are a lovely oasis for sun-worshipping Stockholmers who want to enjoy good food beside the glittering water near the city centre.
PONG Buffé on Drottninggatan in Stockholm is the PONGGROUP’s flagship restaurant. With a clear conscience, we can claim to have one of the best Asian buffets in Sweden. The restaurant serves sushi, Thai dishes, Chinese dim sum and other hot and cold Asian specialities. It is quite simply a groaning Asian smorgasbord. The restaurant was launched in 2009 and its latest innovation is our soft ice cream bar, which offers all the accompaniments you can imagine: toppings, fruit, nuts, etc.
Restaurant Orkidé is a real Thai classic that serves traditional Thai food with flair and finesse. If you have already visited Thailand you will recognize the flavors and if you have not been there you will surely get a reason to go there! The restaurant, which opened back in 1992, is one of the first Thai pubs in Södermalm. Despite being many years old the restaurant is in the forefront and won, for example, the title of Europe’s best Thai restaurant at the Asian Curry Awards in London in 2012. Restaurant Orkidé is easy to find. It is located directly next to Söderhallarna at Medborgarplatsen.
In the lower floor of Skrapan in Södermalm is Imperiet, which is remodeled summer of 2015. We serve both meat platter with lots of wonderful Italian sausages and cheeses, along with fantastic cocktails in our drink bar. We also have a lounge and nightclub up stairs, a relaxed place for you to meet your friends and we are open until 03:00 from Wednesday to Saturday. Music is courtesy of the best DJs in Stockholm.
