Ping Pong has such a nice atmosphere although can become busy and crowded quite quickly. If you have never been before then the ordering system can be a bit confusing but you get used to it fairly quickly. It is a good place if you want some different drinks. The staff are good on service and very polite and nice... More

Visited here last week with a friend whilst in London on business for dinner. We were seated on a sharing table which was fine. The only issue is bag/coat space - some parts of the restaurant have coat hooks but we didn't and I couldn't fit my handbag and coat on the shelf under the seat. We were seated right... More

Large, bright and modern Dim Sum restaurant. Reasonably priced at £36 for 7 portions and 3 drinks. Irritating they add 12% service charge, although the service was good.. The food is an interesting variety of ok quality, fillings could be better.

I absolutely love ping pong - the food, service and drinks are all great. I would really recommend trying a few (or a lot) of the cocktails they do! They make my absolute favourites. The food is always cooked lovely and comes out quickly. I go for lunch or dinner every time I'm in London - perfect, bubbly place to... More

Went with a friend who claimed Ping Pong was the worst place to eat. Starters were pretty good and friend nearly had to eat his words! Then came the selection of dim sum of which every steamed item was oversteamed and soft/damp in texture - shame. I do understand why it is popular: - great insight to dim sum and... More

Quick service food out in minutes and was delicious. Would recommend especially for a lunch break. The gyozo was especially delicious!

great atmosphere, busy restaurant with fantastic crew. decent food, pricey but considering the location, it was expected. i can't really convince myself to come back to this restaurant only because the food, although tasty and nicely presented didn't really tickle my taste buds. the fusion is great but some of the dishes tasted a bit bland presumably to capture the...

The place is usually very busy. We had to wait for around 30-40 min for our table. The food was amazing. We got a Christmas selection and a Vegetarian Christmas Selection. The dumplings were delicious. As well as the other courses and the chocolate dessert.

Very tasty food but the concept of ordering many small portions makes it easy to order too much! Suggest ordering a couple of dishes each first - you can always order more!

Been to this restaurant many times. I love the imagination in the food and drinks. Something a little bit different from the usual stuff!
