The restaurant is located just moments away from St Katharine Pier and overlooks the luxury yachts in Central London’s only marina.

From its early concept a clear direction was set for Ping Pong and the group was to become known for Dim Sum, Cocktails and Tea. An essential part of the Dim Sum culture is sharing among family and friends. The founders felt passionate that Ping Pong should bring an authentic Dim Sum experience to London, but with its own original twist, so all dishes were created to be shared.

That’s what this experience is all about – sharing great food and great memories.
