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, cuttlefish in satay sauce, chive dumpling, scallop & shitake dumpling, har gau, char sui bun or crispy hoi sin duck spring roll, all available for a starting price of £3.39 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 raspberries & bourbon (four roses small batch whiskey, guava Juice, raspberries and butterscotch liquor). Coolers and iced teas are also our speciality with the exotic pineapple coconut and lime, lemongrass & ginger iced tea, or strawberry & vanilla. A wide variety of Chinese beers and wines of the world are also available.

“Great place in Westbourne Grove”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

The place is absolutely fantastic! Great and diverse menu. Altough it is not the most economic restaurant, it is worth it to visit it at least once

“Fun meal!”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

We came hungry after returning from Paris. Got in about an hour before closing and waited about 15 minutes for a table. It was surprising to see the place so crowded late at night. The "lazy Sunday" is pricey, but if you come hungry, it is definitely worthwhile. We enjoyed most of the dishes we ordered. Will return on our next UK visit!

“Worst dimsum in London”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

I've visited a few branches but this is by far the worst. Prawn and seafood dimsum was off, smelt funny and was inedible. We also ordered ribs, prawn toast and duck spring rolls. It all tasted as if it had just been defrosted. Food is shockingly bad. Service was awful even though the restaurant was empty. We did tell the manager who offered us 10% discount. I would not advise anyone to visit ping pong.

“Dire service ”
Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

We have been here a couple of times and the service has never been that great. On this occasion our particular waiter could not have been more aloof or disinterested if he tried. We won't be going back.
