Some people think of it as Asian tapas, but dim sum have been around for just as long and this many-small-portions-of-many-dishes style of eating is the best way to sample a lot of different Chinese or Asian flavours. Many of them served neatly wrapped in parcels of pastry, leaves or dumpling. And while tapas is currently trendy, dim sum is not dead this way of eating is very alive and very well at Ping Pong.

There are all sorts of audibly tasty little things on the menu (meaning a lot of it sounds delicious), from fragrant jasmine & pork rice in lotus leaf, to Char Sui bun: Honey-roast barbecued pork, to crab coriander roll with goji berries & apricot sauce. Depending on the dish you get between one and five morsels of goodness on each plate or bamboo steamer. But the best way to experience Ping Pong is to save up your appetite for a Sunday and go for the all you can eat option for 18.89 per person. Their policy on paying extra for any food you don't eat is strict, but they don't mind you sitting there all afternoon sampling a few plates at a time.

Their set menus are another way to get good value out of tiny portions.

Ping Pong is a chain and there are 12 restaurants dotted around London.
