Ping Pong is a contemporary and lively group of restaurants serving Dim Sum, cocktails and Chinese teas.

Dim Sum is prepared as small bite-sized food, steamed to perfection and served alongside fried, rice and griddled dishes. An ideal choice for a quick, light lunch or a fun night out – as they say, all the fun is in the sharing, which Ping Pong encourages!

Ping Pong St Katharine Docks is the perfect waterfront spot for sipping cocktails and for long lazy lunches or dim sum dinners. Our restaurant is located just moments away from Tower Bridge and the Tower of London and overlooks the luxury yachts in Central London’s only marina.

Good service and atmosphere. Good choice if you want a simple yet tasty dim sum. Personally I prefer it for the lighter steamed options

Some portion, like the soups, are a bit small considering the price.

We really like that chain and have been a few times to the ones at Soho and Shepherds Bush, but this one at St.KDa bit disappointed with service - it was sporadic, waitress didn't bring and even ask re tap water or drinks, had to wait to pay the bill, coffee machine was broken hence no coffee.

When we were seated we had to ask for drinks. After 25 mins with no drinks our food was served. When drinks did arrive we were told that they were busy because of a large group in the restaurant. Had also ordered water which we didn’t receive.

The wait staff was lovely but the food was very average and the atmosphere quite cluttered and noisy. You do end up spending more money than you anticipate for not that much food, which is not bad but also really not outstanding or living up to its price point. Plus, the drinks were way too sweet.

We booked table for two for Friday 14.06 and we were a bit disappointed. all tables are very close to each other that you cannot to have any private conversation. We arrived 6.06pm and waiter gave us menu and briefly explain to us how that is work. Disappointed moment came after this where we have to wait around 20 min just for waiter to came over and take our order. At this point I would like to mention that they weren't busy at this time. When we asked for sweet potato fries we've been told that they are not longer available and the menu they have is old. I must say that we received two menus.
We ordered 3 dishes each but I must say we left restaurant a bit hungry.
I think the one thing that put us off is the service. I did not feel at all that I felt kind of welcome over there. My friend also told me that she felt that a waiter did not provide service as he should. Food was nice and next time I will probably have to order more dim sum but I dont think it would be next time.

The waitress didn't know the difference between malbec and merlot. She also had no idea how to split a £70 bill, hen tried to use contactless for a payment over £30. Oh and when she was bending over the adjacent table she touched my guest with her bottom at least 3 times. It was really rather awkward.

One of the waitresses spread soy sauce over my friend's sweater - she could be more careful in her actions to prevent this from happening however whilst she wasn't deliberate, all of us felt she wasn't particularly careful when collecting sauce dishes. It is more of an attitude issue rather than an ability one.
I genuinely hope the above will not re-occur in the future to other customers.

The food was okay but very expensive for small portions - we were all still hungry after.
Had to ask 4 times for water and it did not come until the end of our meal - service was poor

Pre Christmas lunch with my daughter and her friend before skating at the tower ice rink. Service as always very prompt and efficient which is especially important when you have a fixed time slot to eat. Very enjoyable

Great location for visiting the Tower of London in particular; right on St Katherine's dock so a lovely view over the boats. Food is good and tasty at Ping Pong with a wide selection of Chinese foods. However on the night we visited service was almost non-existent. We commented between ourselves that a number of times there was literally no servers in the customer-side of the restaurant at all. The man who served us the food from the kitchen was very polite but his colleagues seemed very absent.

The mystery worker/friend sitting on the table next to us who kept coming and going from the table and helping himself to water etc was extremely off putting and distracting. We couldn't wait to leave the restaurant!

I will just highlight two issues (1) i don't get what there play music so loud. I'd rather have no music (2) this place is not okay for people who are allergic to sesame seeds/oil as there is VERY LITTLE choice for sesame-free foods in the menu.

Too bad because the service was great and it is so close to Tower Bridge!

This was our first time in Ping Pong St. Katharine's Docks but we have tried the one in St Christopher's Place. Great atmosphere and great food as always. The lady who was serving our table was very friendly and responsive and always smiling. Congratulations to the management and staff for making us want to go again and again!
