Ping Pong has really gone down... waiters don't look you in the eye, they don't care. Dumplings not as good... Bathroom smelled... I used to LOVE Ping Pong how disappointing ...

Food was good as usual. The waiting staff were not exactly attentive and drinks took a very long time to arrive. The restaurant wasn't full and overly busy.

The food was great but service was bad. Not only did they forget to bring things we ordered but I had to ask for sauce 4 times before someone brought it to me.

Great flavour.
Not enough per portion. Everyone left hungry.

The worst part is the service charge on the bill does not go to the staff

The manager of the restaurant was incredibly rude to us from beginning to end. One of our party had a mushroom allergy and when we mentioned it to her at the time of ordering food, she was most frustrated that this hadn't been communicated in advance and made it very difficult to accommodate changes for her. Another party member couldn't eat pork due to religious reasons and this was also questioned by the manager and suggested to not be a legitimate reason for requiring the dish to be changed. Throughout the evening, the wrong dishes were served to our table and some courses arrived in the wrong order--prawn crackers after dinner!
Despite being a ping pong fan and a card holder, this time I was thoroughly disappointed. I would reconsider going to this branch again in future.

Ambience was good, but could do better with the service. Went with my partner at around 7pm which was a quite busy time. To get place our first order it took a good 15 mins. Food was served pretty quick though. Waiters had to be called on to the table for orders and requests

We had such a great meal at Ping Pong Soho - the service was superb, the food was great and we all felt really looked after. I would definitely recommend and definitely come back - the cocktails and the spicy dim sum were high points - as were the automated toilet doors! Thanks for a fab night = perfect pre theatre dining :-)

The food at Ping Pong is always good. I had not been to this branch before and we were seated downstairs. The food lived up to expectations but the service was awful. No one was even available to assist us with anything and I had to order drinks many times before it came (as well as waiting early 20 minutes to pay the bill).

A lover of dim sum and now of Ping Pong.

I've been advised to visit this place by a number of people and I am happy to say they didn't and Ping Pong didn't disappoint. The service was great and the waiter was very attentive and played a great host to the restaurant.

The food was incredible and has left me wanting to go back for more.

Good food. Okay service. Waiters were nice, didn’t really explain how things work- we had to ask another waiter because I’d only been there once and wasn’t sure.

Ambience was poor. So loud, you have to shout to talk to a friend sitting a cm away. Very cramped by the bar- would recommend sitting at a table more. Later round 10pm it was quieter and much nicer than the start.

We loved going to Ping Pong! They had such great food. We unknowingly went during happy hour, definitely worth the prices! They had great deals on happy hour and half off drinks! We suggest trying the ping pong set menu!

We went for lunch to have dim sum. The variety was very good, considering allergies or food preferences for everybody. The waiters were very friendly, helpful and patient. The food was delicious, the prices adequate. We will return.

Overall it was really good. The Soho branch was not very busy when we first got there which was nice as it gave my friends and I time to catch up.

Service was friendly and efficient.

Food was to standard as I have eaten at Ping Pong at least 5 times previously and it was good as last time.

Excellent food and a large variety, however the amount of each item you get is extremely unclear, and the size of each item too, so we ended up ordering too many items and they turned out to be really big (which isn't a complaint of course, bigger food is usually better). Would be better if the menu pointed out how many of each item is in each portion, and also indicated the size of each item.

Otherwise though, Ping Pong made for a great second date, and looking forwards to coming back for all you can eat, even if Ping Pong may not be looking forwards to seeing how much I can actually eat :D

Would recommend to anyone looking for a great value, interesting and delicious dinner.
