“Consistently good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013 via mobile

I have been coming here for 3 years now and the food is always top quality. The menu is always varied and have managed to try loads of different dishes, the mocktails are lovely try the virgin Rossini! Beautiful delicate food and lovely fried stuff. This place is a must, obviously if you're from Hong Kong it won't be the best, but this is Dubai and for Dubai standards is is one of the good places to go to!

“Nothing special about the food… sit outside if you decide to visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

The food and service was average at best… the décor nothing to write home about. But, the outdoors seating offers great views of the Dubai fountains where you could catch an afternoon or evening water fountain show.

Had heard reviews like “best dimsum in town”…and ended up being disappointed with this place. Being a Hong Kong resident, perhaps my expectations for dimsum are high and I believe they don’t claim to be an “authentic” Chinese restaurant. The menu is not extensive, but sufficient (and also good number of options for vegetarians) and the food is just okay.

Not something I would recommend if you are on a short visit to Dubai and looking for great dining experiences.

“Sit outdoors by the Fountains”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

This was my first time at Ping Pong. My wife had been to one in London, and hear there is one in Washington, DC as well. It seems they are all over the world. We enjoyed it very much. Excellent vegetarian options, our waiter told us one that wasn't even on the menu - all very delicious. Drinks were good as well. We had reservations for the Burj Khalifa "At the Top" observation deck at 10:30am, came down from the tower at 12:45pm and went to Ping Pong for lunch, when we caught the afternoon Fountain show from the outdoor seating area at Ping Pong.

“Great Dim-Sum, great view!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

Ping pong is a nice, trendy dim sum restaurant with reasonable prices, a young and (mostly) smooth service and a terrace overlooking the famous fountains. The restaurant offers an extensive collection of dim-sums. Good for lunch, great for dinner. No reservations but if you're get there early, you can usually find a good spot.
