For scrumptious Oriental cuisine served within a cosy and relaxed venue, look no further than Mr Ping. This family-run restaurant boasts stylish decor – complete with Chinese motifs and soothing music – and is the perfect place to enjoy special family events, business meetings or simply pop in for a takeaway. On our visit, I began with won ton soup, which comprised little prawn-filled dumplings in a delicious broth. My partner chose to start with prawn toast, before moving on to sizzling lamb in a spicy black pepper sauce. Meanwhile, I tucked in to a dish filled with king prawns, chicken, mushrooms and bamboo shoots. To accompany, we shared a bowl of egg-fried rice. After devouring our feast we relaxed with a coffee each, and agreed that we would be returning to this restaurant soon.
