“Beautiful, carefully constructed Dim Sum, but...”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

I'm used to eating Dim Sum in Chinatown's "ordinary" restaurants. Ping Pong offers more creative plates of lovely dim sum that tastes great. But I still find something lacking. Other restaurants are less creative and less arty, but portions are bigger, prices are lower, and although the food is not as delicate, I find it more satisfying. My wife has a much more positive opinion of Ping Pong, however. We both agree on the 4 stars. Nice surroundings, good service, and a better atmosphere. This is where you go to impress your out of town visitor. If you want to chow down on dim sum, you might try other places and come back to Ping Pong when the mood (or the visitors) strike.

“Taaasty Dim Sum!!!”
Reviewed July 25, 2014

I went to this restaurant on the advise from trip advisor and was not disappointed. Dumplings are one of my favourite things and this was one of my favourite experiences. There is a very good selection of dumplings to choose from and the pork buns are a must. Ping Pong has great service and ambience. For a backpacker it was a little pricey, but being a chef as well it was definently worth it. I had 4 different selections, dessert and a beer and it came to roughly $50. Definitely worth a visit!!

“Pricey but good”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

After a whole day of touring, I didn't think I could eat all that I'd ordered. BUT I ate every bit! The food was good. The waitress Kayla was fabulous!
It's an upscale Chinese restaurant. More than I'd expected.
I was amazed that they did not have Chinese mustard... a staple.
