Ping Pong has retained all the best bits of the ancient tradition of Chinese tea houses, like sharing and relaxing, but add cocktails into the mix for a modern touch. Their dim sum is traditionally handcrafted by specialist chefs using the freshest ingredients. The menu features an endless assortment of little parcels of deliciousness, in various shapes and colours: steamed or griddled dumplings, steamed fluffy buns, baked flaky puffs, spring rolls, soups and coconut rice pots. Enjoy favourites such as chicken shu mai, squid in satay sauce and har gau, starting from £2.95. It's all about sharing, and from £9.95 the set menus take you through the A to Z of dim sum. The seasonal specials are unique creations updated every two months - catch them while you can. Tea drinking is an integral part of the Chinese dim sum experience; you'll be wowed by Ping Pong's hand-rolled jasmine pearls and hand-tied flowering teas - simply let the tea theatrically blossom in your glass. Ping Pong also offers an exclusive range of cocktails like the lychee and roses Martini or the Ping Pong - served long, and so good they put their name on it. Coolers and iced teas are also a speciality - flavours include the exotic pineapple, coconut and lime cooler, and strawberry and vanilla iced tea. A wide variety of Chinese beers and global wines is also available. The Ping Pong team has cleverly mixed traditional and authentic Chinese cuisine with modern style - whether you're a dim sum enthusiast or looking to try it for the first time, you'll love the delights on offer. There's also now complimentary Wi-Fiavailable, perfect for workers on the go.
