Ping Pong London

Ping Pong serves a hearty selection of Dim Sum and assorted Chinese food in London. The spacious bar encourages sharing among friends, while the selection of Chinese teas and cocktails will help the evening breeze along. And if the mixed drinks strike a particular chord, why not get yourself involved in one of their cocktail masterclasses?

The Courtesan

This unique Chinese restaurant in London hopes to transport you back to the peak of Imperial China. The Dim Sum and cocktail bar, hidden away from the bustling streets of Brixton, is modelled on the dark décor of a Chinese opium den, but don't let the inspiration fool you: the venue is completely child friendly. With original house cocktails, speciality teas and great Dim Sum, this is perfect place for lunch or dinner.

The Red Duck

If you're on the hunt for Chinese restaurants in Balham, look no further than The Red Duck. From tender char siu pork to crispy salt and pepper squid, they're serving up all your favourite traditional dishes with modern flair. So tuck in.
