Picture of Ping Pong St Christopher's Place, Marylebone, London

Ping Pong St Christopher's Place, Marylebone (Bar / Restaurant)
“As a Chinese living in London all my life, I regularly eat at dim sum joints across the city so I generally know what to expect. However, Ping Pong was totally unexpected and a disappointment after a friends suggestion to go there. Dishes were of tiny portion compared to the norm and many dim sum choices were experimental and average tasting at best. For example, the Chefs Special - Scallop with Asparagus fried dumpling (107 on the menu) came on a plate looking like 3 supermini scotch eggs and each one I would say is 90% filled with a mushroom. How much? £3.99. O My God! Also, you would expect a Chinese restaurant with dim sum to serve noodle dishes. Don't expect any here. To be fair the decor was okay, it was clean and the staff were generally friendly. I guess you pay mainly for the scenery and service and not for a good meal. Dim Sum for 6 = £90 + half full stomach. Nevertheless, experience counts and I'm glad I did try Ping Pong because now I know not to go there anymore and because it makes me appreciate proper dim sum places in London such as Joy King Lau and Golden Palace.”
