Ping Pong rocks. The staff are friendly and the food is consistently good. The dim sum remains delicious and it's a great way to be able to feed yourself when near Waterloo. Losing a star as I was in on a Saturday and the heating...More

Very nice food and service. We had to wait a bit for a table but it was worth it. Also, on a Friday night, without booking it's very unlikely to get the table instantly. Well recommend 👍
