From outposts at shopping centres to multiple sites in the West End, Ping Pong knows a thing or two about serving East Asian eats to hungry Londoners. But beyond the extensive menu of Chinese classics, Ping Pong Southbank also doubles up as one of the city's most gorgeous restaurants.
Whether you came to step up your Instagram game or just appreciate some fine foliage, this one won't disappoint. Situated on the Southbank, the SE1 spot lies just moments from the River Thames. Once you're done playing tourist at the London Eye and Festival Pier, get ready for scallop sticky rice, fluffy char sui buns and Shanghai chilli wontons... with a different kinda view. Expect a glass-fronted building and a floral installation with cosy blankets and flowers throughout the space.
As if that wasn't enough, the place really comes alive at the weekend with a Saturday DJ brunch complete with bottomless cocktails and unlimited dim sum on Sundays.
