Ping Pong is not my first port of call for authentic dim-sum, but there is no denying that it does the job almost as well. A more than generous selection of steamed, fried and signature dim-sums, some of which are definitely better than others. The star of the show for me has to be the roast pork puffs, with juicy sweet pork filling enveloped in flaky puff pastry, sprinkled with sesame seeds. Duck spring rolls with hoisin sauce, steamed seafood dumplings and the pork fillet are all great choices. They have a great choice of drinks and cocktails too, which is nice… Desserts are a very different affair as they are mediocre. Very kindly, our waitress warned me that the coconut cakes are not really cakes (per se) and aren't that tasty… If anything, honesty like this is refreshing and should be rewarded! I had the banana and chocolate spring rolls, which could do with less pastry and more chocolate and my friend chose the chilli and chocolate mousse, which she said was actually quite spicy, but definitely in line with the whole Oriental theme I guess. The best value at Ping Pong comes on Sundays (not at this particular branch as its closed) when for about £16 you can eat UNLIMITED dim-sum and that is pretty great! Go on an empty stomach to get the most value!
