Let the kids get eggy at Ping Pong: Chomp your gnashers round some seriously delicious dim sum while the kids enjoy the egg-painting creche.

Mum and dad can enjoy Ping Pong’s speciality Chinese-with-a-twist delights, including the legendary spring rolls, the enormous array of dim sum, the salads, desserts and a choice of mocktails and teas. Bliss! Prices vary.
