First experience of this type of restaurant and sorry but didn't enjoy. Food lacked flavour and the dip didn't make up for that. I did enjoy the mango mocktail and the service was good.More

I ate lunch at Ping Pong, the food was ok but not as good and more expensive than a decent independent dim sum restaurant. The service was good and the food arrived quickly so it was a good fit for a work lunch hour.More

Booked a pre theatre dinner included in our theatre tickets. Greeted and shown to our table even though we were a bit early. Chose the veggie menu and it was lovely. Aubergine curry which I had never had before, would return

Description
At Ping Pong we have kept all the best bits of the ancient tradition of Chinese tea houses, like meeting to relax and share. We just thought that after a thousand years or so it would be ok to add cocktails to the mix. Our Dim Sum is handcrafted by our specialist chefs using the freshest ingredients. We may have put a man on the moon, but there remains no better way to make Dim Sum.Join us for an endless assortment of steamed or griddled dumplings, steamed fluffy buns, baked flaky puffs, spring rolls, soups or coconut rice pots and, admire the varied shapes and colours of our little parcels of deliciousness. Enjoy some of our signature dishes or our Dim Sum favourites such as the king prawn & garlic black dumpling, beef and cumin dumpling, chive dumpling, scallop & shitake dumpling, har gau, char sui bun or crispy hoi sin duck spring roll, all available for a starting price of £2.95 a serving. We love a sharing experience at Ping Pong so try our set menus to take through the A-Z taste of Dim Sum, starting from £9.99. Have you heard about our seasonal specials? These are our unique creations updated every two months, so catch them while you can.Tea drinking is an integral part of the Chinese Dim Sum experience, come and wow your eyes with our hand-tied flowering teas and hand-rolled jasmine pearls. Simply sit back and let the tea theatrically blossom in your glass. We also offer an exclusive range of cocktails, such as a lychee & roses martini (tanqueray gin, rose petals and lychee juice) or Dragon Punch (Bacardi oak heart, wray and nephew, agave nectar, pineapple, lemon juice and cinnamon with pear purée and basil seeds). Coolers and iced teas are also our speciality with the exotic pineapple coconut and lime, Lemon& Lychee iced tea, or Elderflower basil & Lemonade. A wide variety of Chinese beers and wines of the world are also available.
