We were looking for a family friendly cheap and cheerful place to take kids before a show. You order around 5 dishes each and they arrive at random intervals every 10-15 minutes so perhaps not the place if you're short of time as never sure when your food will arrive. After half an hour we gave up on our last... More

Food was excellent as usual, service was great, good atmosphere, good value. Mix up with the cocktails ordered, but a benefit in the long run as we got to keep the wrong ones.

You will walk away with a happy, full tummy but a lighter wallet! The food is fresh, tasty and fabulous, and the service is great. Cocktails are also splendid. Enjoy, just brace yourself for the bill!

Experience was really nice. sat outside as was very busy and loud inside. The heaters work very well and we weren't cold at all. They were quite busy so service was a little slow but overall very good. staff were very friendly. Would recommend to others!

Ping Pong on the Southbank is a busy buzzy packed dim sum eatery. Five minutes from Waterloo. Good range of dim sum efficiently delivered. Only gripe was Tsingtao 640ml at £6.95 seemed a little steep. But this is central London. Clientele mainly young things in the run up to Christmas. Outside terrace seating heated in winter offered a more peaceful... More

Love this place on a Sunday where you can indulge and overeat and actually get dim sum fix all in one go. The dim sum quality is very reasonable - I'd not say it is top of the range, but it is well above average. Some of the dishes here are unique and has great flavor - I like BBQ... More

Our second visit to Ping Pong this year. The first was fabulous, and the second, today, for a reunion lunch, was even better! The food was marvellous, as always, but today, we had THE most wonderful, attentive and charming waiter...Mateusz, who couldn't have done more for us if he had tried! He was so polite, and attended to our every... More
