Why not ditch the old bird this year and swap turkey with dim sum? Your colleagues will surely appreciate something different. Better still, if you book your party at Ping Pong, there’s a complimentary prosecco reception waiting for you. Book any set Christmas menu for a minimum of 10 people before the end of September, Ping Pong will throw in a fizz reception – free of charge. 

Now eight strong, the Ping Pong chain is still funky enough for Pharrell Williams to stop by when he’s in town. The group’s blueprint is serving up traditional ‘yum cha’ – tea and dumplings – alongside inventive new-wave cocktails.

Our top picks are the Southbank branch (which sits snugly next to the Royal Festival Hall, near both the river and Waterloo station); the Soho site (which spreads across two floors and is one of the group’s larger restaurants); its Covent Garden venue (groups can choose between a mezzanine-level private dining room and a colourful exclusive space in the basement); and the restaurant in St Katharine Docks (which looks out across central London’s only marina).
