Really average dim sum, you're better off going to China town for much more appealing prices and a lot more authenticity. The hot pots at Ping Pong are delish though. But that's all that's to love about this place in my opinion. And the cocktails - they do brilliant concoctions, but again, really overpriced and rubbish value for money. If you're looking for cheap and authentic, Ping Pong isn't your best bet.
I went to Ping Pong right after moving back from Hong Kong, craving Dim Sum. I was not at all disappointed. The atmosphere is vibrant and young. The waiters smile and take the time to ensure you have what you need even though the restaurant is always extremely busy. The cocktails are amazing (personal favorite would be the Ping Pong) as well as their Iced teas. And the food is to die for. Order everything you feel like having even though it may be way more than you expect you'll finish it all with no regret. Definitely have the Beef Gyoza dumpling and the Char Siu Bao and enjoy their amazing taste. I wouldn't recommend the Xiao Long bao, one of my personal favorites unfortunately rather disappointing here as the dough is much too thick.
I swung by recently with a couple of friends to try out their new seasonal menu. As always, the food was on point - and I'm liking the new terrace area (although, not with the rubbish weather we've been having recently). I also thought Ping Pong offered some amazing, summery cocktails. I don't love beer, but the "Hoppy Dark & Stormy" (a mix of rum, and chinese tsingtao beer and ginger) was delish! Get a couple of those with the crispy chilli squid for a light bite and you'll be set.
The food is good, but not amazing. There is an attempt to do 'fusion asian dumplings', which was very hit and miss in my opinion. I wasn't a fan of the setting either, which features shared tables. This can be extremely awkward especially if you are on a date, or even if you want an intimate conversation with a friend. The service is fairly good and prompt. I do feel that it massively overcharges for the quality of food.
