This Soho branch of the dim sum chain is one of eight now in London, and a solid example of why this group seems to still be doing so well. It's somewhere that works well as an accessible introduction to yum cha - before you get to the tripe, the chicken feet and the duck tongue.

Most of the dumplings here are steamed, with recognisable options including chicken and cashew nut, scallop and shiitake, char siu (barbecue pork in a fluffy white bao) and har gau (king prawn and bamboo shoot in a translucent dough). Expect, too, baked roast pork puffs, griddled spinach and mushroom dumplings and even gyoza, for a slice of how they do them in Japan.

We’re just yards from swinging Carnaby Street. We know that shopping can be thirsty work, so our resident mixologists would love to rustle up a nice cocktail to soothe your weary feet and help you unwind.

After finally visiting Ping Pong, now I understand why is it so popular.

My friend and I ordered few dishes to share between us and everything was very tasty. Bill comes around £55 for two people, including wine, that is, if you are not going overboard with ordering dishes. I love decor and eventhough it has the look of quite an expensive restaurant, staff is very relaxed, which makes everything better,
It's perfect for any occasion really. Meal with a friend, date, it's even a very convienent place to go if you are in larger groups, as they have a lot of round tables dedicated especially for that.


The atmosphere at Ping Pong branches are always welcoming, from the decor and music, to the staff's relaxed approach. 

With such a large selection of food it's almost impossible to be disappointed. You will find something you like and if you come across something you don't like you can take comfort in knowing it's a small plate rather than a large dish you have to finish so you can really experiment.

My only gripe would be that as it was a busy branch there were sometimes delays in our service or we were forgotten however we also didn't feel like we were being rushed to leave after our meal which can often happen at busy restaurants.

Amazing quality dumplings, great atmosphere and friendly staff.

It´s the perfect place to go with a group of friends and share some asian ´tapas´ in a typical friendly spanish type. 


Great service, ordering system explained to us as it was our first time there. Food comes as and when it is ready and everything tasted good. Only reason for 4* is that I think it is a bit overpriced....


Been here twice now, lovely atmosphere and I like the water feature outside- great to look at during the meal! I enjoyed the food and drink, good service too and very clean washroom facilities. Would recommend it to others for a pleasant meal
