Square Meal Review of Ping Pong Southbank ?

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 queuing out the door from the get-go. These days, however, the reality isn’t quite as impressive as the concept. Inconsistent service & food remains a bugbear, particularly when bills are ‘hefty’ (for dim sum, at least). On a good day (or, more likely, night) when the atmosphere is buzzing, it’s still a lively experience – especially when you factor in budget cocktails (from £5.95). 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.

    S.W. Foodie :: Ping Pong - dim sum on the Southbank

    Ping Pong Southbank has a dramatic walk across the river from my office and shows our beautiful city at it's best, especially on a clear Wintry day like last week. If you're familiar with Ping Pong then you'll know the interior is that of a slick tea house and nothing like the places in china town which are slightly more traditional in simple décor. I started my lunch with one of their signature flowering teas...'flowering dragon eye' a mix of green tea and jasmine really refreshing and cleansing.
