Really lovely evening at Ping Pong, Southbank. Great food, drinks and made all the better by our wonderful waitress, Szilui. Thank you :)

Serving up irresistible dim sum by the riverside, Ping Pong Southbank is a vibrant location to enjoy traditional Chinese food. A covered al fresco terrace and the Ping Pong restaurant’s huge windows offer great London views, while upstairs the buzzing cocktail bar has Martinis, coolers and more.

Offering a wide range of Asian treats, the sleek Ping Pong restaurants pay homage to the ancient traditions of Chinese tea houses. With a big choice of dumplings and steamed buns, the Ping Pong menu also offers an array of fragrant Chinese soups and rice pots.

There are plenty of familiar Chinese delicacies, with spring rolls, prawn toasts and honey-glazed spare ribs. For dessert, try Ping Pong’s banana and chocolate spring roll or the ice cream filled rice pastry, mochi, and finish with a lively Ping Pong cocktail or soothing Oriental tea.

Right by the Southbank Centre and close to Tate Modern, Ping Pong Southbank restaurant enjoys a stunning location by the Thames. Ping Pong Southbank is a 4-minute walk from London Waterloo Train Station.

    Lovely food, shame the set menu description was misleading! The 'main course' consisted of 1 dumpling of each listed in the menu, essentially 5 in all. This is really a starter and not a main course. The restaurant was also very very busy with tables stuck very close to each other.

    Ping Pong provided a great venue and lovely food and wine for a special birthday celebration for 17 people. They gave us a quiet and flexible space for a family gathering and the service was excellent. Full marks on a busy day for them.

    Good friendly service, nothing was too much.

  • (((** 21 December 2016 by Sarah Johnson from London

    Quite disorganised and upon arrival my table wasn't ready until 15 minutes after my booking, but walk ins got tables first. Also while there was a lot of staff around, service was relatively slow.

    Great food & the "Lazy Sumdays" deal, although the service was quite slow - must be noted it was the Sunday lunchtime rush so understandable.

    Didn't appreciate the service fee being included into the bill as a mandatory item.

    Excellent food and friendly and efficient service.

  • ((*** 29 November 2016 by Kenny Vaughan from London

    Very busy being Black Friday afternoon. Seated quickly however ignored a few time at the front desk. Food was a great quality and drinks arrived promptly, however we were given the incorrect prawn rice despite specifically asking for veggie. Their switchover then arrived long after the whole meal had been finished and we had no choice but to leave.

  • (((** 28 November 2016 by Brigitte Doliveux from Woking

    The food was very nice, the service was very pleasant from start to finish, the place is beautiful (we went upstairs) but the noise plus music on top is really too much.
