Dim Sum at Dubai Mall 33 Reviews

From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2011
We can’t help but be impressed with the food offerings at Dubai Mall, and Ping Pong is no exception. Tucked away on the lower ground floor, this Asian delight is rather swanky, with its dim lighting and sophisticated, monochrome decor. Friendly and informative staff will help novices sift through the menu and DIY ordering process, and steer you through the vast menu of juices, mocktails and amazingly beautiful flowering teas. Food-wise, we recommend taking a risk and trying something new because, while old Asia hands will have tasted better dim sum in the Far East, they won’t have tasted better in Dubai.
The steamed spicy chicken dumplings are delicate explosions of spices and coriander, and certainly live up to the ‘steamed parcels of deliciousness’ moniker. The fluffy buns are light and airy, while the fried options (the crisp hoi sin duck spring roll with plum sauce is a particular favourite) are crisp-ily tasty. Add to that clay pot dishes, salads and soups, and even the fussiest of eaters – and that includes kids – will find something to satisfy their pangs. It's perfect for a light lunch or snack; our only criticism is that Ping Pong can work out rather pricey if you’re ravenous.By Time Out Dubai staff
