Ping Pong St. Christopher's Place

Squaremeal Review of Ping Pong St. Christopher's Place ?

The Ping Pong concept was always a good one. Take the centuries-old Chinese tradition of ‘yum cha’ – tea and 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 and 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 and chive dumplings are reliable picks from the menu, and there are seasonal specials too, such as ‘luxury’ spring rolls with truffle oil.

Ping pong is definitely the go to place for reliably fresh dim sum. I am a big fan of the steamed spicy chicken dim sum, but was pleased to see a new addition to the menu with the ginger duck dim sum that was absolutely delicious! This was lunch during a shopping trip so it was nice to pop into the restaurant for a quick lunch with speedy service and delicious food. I left with a full and happy tummy!

    I first discovered Ping Pong when I was visiting London with my father last summer. We were wandering around Central London and saw the sign for dim sum, which immediately caught our fancy. Since then, I have eaten there 3 or 4 times.

    Their choice of dim sums is vast. I would highly recommend the steamed chicken cashew nut, steamed scallop and shiitake and fried duck spring rolls. I also love the variety of sauces they give you – besides the standard soya sauce, there are 3 different chilli sauces and if you have a loyalty card (I have a habit of getting loyalty cards wherever I go), they also bring you...
