I had a lovely lunch at Ping Pong, Great Marlborough St and we were lucky enough to sit outside. Service by Piero was charming, amusing and efficient. The food was as good as always and the glasses of Aperol Spritz were exactly what we needed. Overall, I would recommend to other diners.

The manager was very rude to us when seating us, as he needed to take our details for track and trace, rather than us using the app. He made us feel very self-conscious and embarrassed in front of a line of other customers as he scolded us, even though taking our details took less than a minute. The waitress was lovely, but our food order got muddled up and we had to chase up missing items on three occasions. This was the same experience for the two tables next to us. The food was delicious once it all arrived.

Food and drinks were decent however service was sub par. The waiters didn’t know what food was what and no one advised we had a time limit on our table. We were ordering tons of food and drinks and just ordered another round when we were told we had 5 minutes left. Then about 30 seconds later were told we had to leave right now. Would have been nice to have a heads up so we wouldn’t have ordered another round of drinks. Manager was not apologetic and then told me to finish my drink inside as we pay where I was then asked to wear my mask but then was confused on how I was meant to finish my cocktail? Luckily we went elsewhere and had a fabulous time. Would maybe come back for the food but for the service not a chance.

We shared lunch as a family of five, and hadn’t been out in a while. Food was delicious and fresh, well prepared. Service was a bit hit and miss but we weren’t in a hurry so no worries there. These are difficult times for restaurants, so sending my support ! Hope we all get to get back to normal one day!

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).
