Wife and I vacationed Vidanta and visited the Gong as our last night dinner. Our waiter Angel was fantastic, every recommendation he made was on spot. From the wine, Pekin Duck to our dessert and coffee. I would highly recommend the Gong!

Great food and service. Beautiful atmosphere. The staff is amazing. Black Cod (and the way it is prepared) is the most delicious fish we have ever had.

The food was great taste and presentation. But the service was amazing. Our waiter Jaime was the best. He was on top of the entire process. He suggested that the food we ordered come in stages and we agreed. Their was not a break more than 2 minutes between finishing one thing and Jaime's arrival with the next plate that we were sharing. He checked our our satisfaction on a timely basis and never seemed to be hovering. Midway through the meal, the manager Ernesto came by to check on us and we raved about Jaime. He just nodded and said thank you. This restaurant and Jaime's section will be on our list for each visit at Vidanta.

My husband ordered the Char Siu pork and it was absolutely amazing! I cannot recommend it enough mine was good but his was to die for. I feel their prices are a bit high for what they offer but I would still go back.

Extremely slow service. It took the waiter 30 minutes to take our order. Also it took 20 mins for him to bring 2 Martini’s. The food was good and they give sizable portions. The ambience is not romantic due to very bright lighting.

Exceptional, in every single way.
There are no bad decisions here. Lobster spring rolls, Thai seafood soup, surf and turf and the Peking duck are all excellent choices, but the warm and knowledgeable service is the real star. They also have single-village mezcal and, I am told perfect martinis. Easily the best restaurant in the resort.

Gong is an outstanding Asian restaurant. The food is excellent and the staff very solicitous. When we were first seated, we were in an area that was too cold (the place is a bit over-air-conditioned) and so close to the live violinist (with recorded back-up) that we could barely hear each other. The staff were very accommodating and moved us to a table just across from the open section of the kitchen, which was warmer and where we could talk without shouting at each other. It is one of Riviera Maya's upscale restaurants, and it provides a truly memorable dining experience, for a price, of course.

The food, service, and ambiance were all spectacular! Although this restaurant has four dollar signs ($$$$) indicating that it is very expensive, there is great value in terms of quality, presentation, and quantity for the item ordered.

The vegetable tempura, and vegetable rice are a must! If you order these two items you will not be disappoint.

The attention and service provided by the staff specifically Arturo, Ricardo, and Manuel was superb!

Todo muy bien. Excelente. Atención instalaciones. Solo. El servicio de tránalados de un lugar a otro y el estacionamiento. Lento muy lento. Cuarenta minutos para salir. Al auto. Es lo único. Y mucha pérdida de tiempo en espera. Por ejemplo al salir. Del show del circo. Un carrito. Para. Más de 50 personas. Que ya estábamos esperando. Por más de 40 minutos.

The food was delicious! The flavor combinations were unique and delightful and the presentation was incredible. The staff was incredibly attentive. The prices were excellent as the dishes were filling. Just enough to satisfy.
My absolute favorite meal of my trip. I had vegetarian rolls, vegetarian noodles and chocolate, ginger cake for dessert.
