"We went there with a coupon which included the charcuterie plate and a bottle of wine. The plate was delicious and a generous portion of meat and cheese. The extra bread was necessary but also good and hot. The wine wasn't vey good but we didn't get to pick. We also had a pasta stiffs with squash in. Utter sauce. It was tasty. Us the pasta was folded a little think.. I would definitely go back.."

Serving up irresistible Dim Sum, innovative cocktails, and luxurious Chinese teas, Ping Pong Dupont is a vibrant location to enjoy Dim Sum with a twist. The cosmopolitan restaurant boasts 2 al fresco 3-season patios, a dim sum bar, expansive dining room great for large groups, and a buzzing cocktail bar with award-winning libations. <br /><br />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. <br /><br />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.

"The tasting menu is definitely plentiful. There is a lot of food but the quality is uneven. For the price I think you would be better off ordering off the menu. Anything we had with shrimp was very good. Many of the fried items were greasy. The service was good and it was pretty empty so it is hard to tell about the noise level (except for the terrible music). The chairs are backless which may be OK for the young people but were not comfortable at all."

"We've eaten here before and it has been better. This time we ordered the calamari and it was tiny, hard circles you could hardly taste. The shrimp appetizer was two shrimp, not just overcooked but almost spongy, as if they had been frozen and unfrozen more than once., The mushroom baklava was good as was the onion soup. I must say we did complain and they were very apologetic but we were on a living social coupon so, since it required us to spend $40 there was no point in their taking things off the bill."

"I went for lunch and had a brisket torta (sandwich). It was delicious and very reasonably priced ad came with a good sized caesar salad. The only problem was that one of the wait staff kept trying to bring us food that was destined for other tables."
