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.

Had my birthday meal here with 13 people. Restaurant very accommodating and have us a nice area downstairs at the back. Food is really good and quick to arrive. I am allergic to seafood, I was given a special seafood free menu which is so helpful when choosing dishes. Can’t fault Ping Pong & everyone in my party enjoyed the food & venue.

Food wasn’t bad, cocktails tasted watered down, or sweet.
But waitress did try and get us a different cocktail.
Would have preferred prosecco.
Overall not bad, but wouldn’t rush back as the DJ was disappointing kept playing the same back ground music.

Met up with school friends after 6 months. We ordered pretty much every type of dimsum on the menu. It was a great food experience.

It was very busy and noisy.
The food wasn’t up to scratch and the service was poor.
I love ping pong, I go a lot and usually the food is delicious, and service good.
It was disapointing especially as it was my anniversary.

Lively restaurant situated in a convenient position near Regent Street. Staff were helpful and friendly. The food was delicious - hot and fresh. We had the Lazy Sumday brunch and the Prosecco offer which was great value. We stayed for a good few hours chatting and we were not rushed at any time. Was a great place to catch up with my daughters in a very relaxed atmosphere with great food and drink.

After being disappointed with the Westfield Ping Pong, thought we would give this a try. Most of the dim sum we had were excellent, a couple seemed to miss a bit for us, but this is probably just personal taste. Cocktails and mocktails were also well enjoyed.
Value was good at £120 ish for 4 including drinks and 4 large bottles of water. It's not quite the Ping Pong that the Bayswater one used to be before it closed, but I would go back, whereas the Westfield one I would not
Staff were all very polite and friendly

The food was good. Service so inefficient. Being right near the Palladium, it would be a good idea if they catered efficiently for pre theatre. Restaurant rather shabby too. This is the 2nd time I have visited this branch and both times had the same service problem

I rated the ambience poor because I did not like our table. The inside table at the front is not a good place to be seated. It's like being seated in a smoking area because you get the smoke from the outside diners coming in through the front door. The most annoying thing is you get the glare from car headlights all the time as they come out from the street across. The food is good though.

Yule party order set menus, we thought to be easy, then complete farce ensued...incomplete ordered arrived then mislabeled orders resulted in veggies being given meat order. Then staggered meal 2 from first batch, 6 from second then final order after first batch finished. Thankfully, we did get a discount from rhe manager but suspect this may be a regular occurrence

Overall the restaurant has a great vibe and buzz along with cool decor.
The menu is left with you to choose and complete on a form which is really confusing when there’s a large group and each person choosing multiple dishes. It would help a lot if the waiter took the order on large bookings as this order process takes a long time passing the sheet from person to person.
The food all arrives in a jumble and it’s hard to remember which dishes belong to who,
Despite all the ordering chaos, it’s a fun place and good for a group dinner.
