The Ping Pong concept was always a good one. Take the centuries-old Chinese tradition of ‘yum cha’ – tea & dumplings – then add funky cocktails to the mix. A stroke of genius that had punters

Roast pork puffs, duck spring rolls & chive dumplings are reliable picks from the menu, & there are seasonal specials too, such as ‘luxury’ spring rolls with truffle oil.
