Serving up irresistible Dim Sum, innovative cocktails, and luxurious Chinese teas, Ping Pong Chinatown is a vibrant location to enjoy Dim Sum with a twist. The cosmopolitan restaurant boasts a dim sum bar, sunken dining room great for large groups, and a buzzing cocktail bar with award-winning libations.

Offering a wide range of Asian treats, the sleek Ping Pong restaurants pay homage to the ancient traditions of Chinese tea houses. With a big choice of dumplings and steamed buns, the Ping Pong menu also offers an array of "big-small plates", all Chinese tapas style.

As well, there are plenty of familiar Chinese delicacies, with spring rolls, soup dumplings, and hearty dishes like our hoi sin duck bao sliders. For dessert, try Ping Pong’s roasted banana and chocolate spring roll or the ice cream filled rice pastry, mochi, and finish with a lively Ping Pong cocktail or soothing Oriental tea.

Went here upon recommendation on Sunday in January around 1pm and was very disappointed. We had a reservation and restaurant was half empty and yet we had to wait 25 minutes for a table. It was understaffed and we didn't get menus or water til 25 minutes after being seated. The restaurant was not clean, tables remained unbussed the 1.5 hours we were there, waters leaks on the floor everywhere, and service was poor. Half of the dishes on the brunch menu were sold out. The manager who seated us never came to check on us and we had to flag a waiter down. The food came out quick but that's the only positive I can say.

My mother and I were visiting from NY to see my Aunt , who lives in DC. I googled the best place in DC for dim sum and found Ping Pong. We would not be disappointed. We chose the $25 tasting menu, which included different type of dumplings, such as lobster and shrimp ,crispy prawn rolls , pork buns ,delicately sweet, yet, not too spicy. I ordered a peach earl grey julep which paired delightfully with the entrées. My only complaint was with our dessert, sweet pineapple filled spring rolls, that were served with cinnamon ice cream, which was great. I just wish we were each given a scoop of ice cream, instead of having to share a big scoop. All in All, I gladly recommend Ping Pong to anyone looking for great Dim Sum in DC.

Food was below mediocre - some of the dishes didn’t come out and we were informed that we’re out - - it was lackluster at best. Service was off... yuk.

Bought the groupon that came with a set of preselected dishes. It was okay some of the items were more enjoyable than others. The groupon was still worth the value of what we got.

I had come here for happy hour a couple of times before within the last two years with some other friends. The drinks and food had been good. I also came here about two months ago for a friend's birthday and the happy hour drinks and food were good. Unfortunately, this time around I was disappointed. The drinks were like fruit juices, A couple of guests in my crowd asked whether their drinks could be redone. It was a terrible experience for me since I recommended the place.

Food was good. We got assorted dim sum, which is a menu item so dont say it unless you want to order it. We ordered three different types of dim sum and two different spring rolls. The atmosphere was very trendy. We eat an early dinner/late lunch, so only a few other groups there. Their teas are hand crafted, but im not a tea connoisseur so its just tea to me and its too expensive.

All in all great place to eat. Their dim sum is wonderful.

I took the chance of having dinner here with two vegetarians before a Wizards game. Overall I would agree with the reviews that complain about the potion sizes and the unavailability of certain menu items. The vegetarian set menu is paltry. The black pepper shrimp lackluster and arrived on wilted-looking greens and jalapeños. The variety of steamed dumplings were decent, but we're also presented in a somewhat unappetizing way. Dinner for one adult and two children with no alcohol came to $90, which would have been fine for larger portions and a notch or two higher in quality/presentation. As it is, it's overpriced street food.
