“Steamed little pockets of deliciousness” are the specialty of the house at Ping Pong Din Sum, which has two locations in Washington, D.C., in Dupont and on Seventh Street. There’s an incredibly wide variety of dim sum available, from steamed items to griddled and fried specialties, along with soups and salads, rice dishes, and a handful of signature dishes.

As for those signature dishes, we suggest you order some of those. Black salt and Sichuan pepper shrimp, Mandarin and citrus spare ribs, hoi sin duck bao sliders, and crispy beef with citrus soy sauce are all standouts, and are large enough to share with several people. Other options include a wide variety of pot stickers, spring rolls, puff pastry items, shu mai (try the blue crab and sweet corn) and dumplings (including soup dumplings!), char siu pork buns, and sticky rice. Save room for dessert, because the roasted chocolate and banana spring roll and Chinese chocolate sesame doughnuts will end your meal on a very high note. 

Foursquare Tips

  • upscale, elegant, handmade versions of the classics - but no carts!
  • The chicken puffs are REALLY legit.
  • Food here is really good-if u go on a busy Fri or Sat nite-don't expect good service. Team of servers mixed up order + took 10 min to bring cream for coffee! Been here for brunch-good service then.
  • The char sui buns are ridiculously delicious.
  • you know it's fishy when no Asians are eating here. Do yourself and your wallet a favor and go to a real dimsum place.
  • Warning: the food is good (5.5/10) but the service is awful at best. I have never be so appalled by lack of attention. I feel like my waiter and I just broke up, he won't even come by...
  • Overpriced average Chinese dimsum. Not authentic. Notice there is no Chinese people here!
  • Amazing food! Try: hoisin duck rolls, Vietnamese shrimp spring roll, seafood sticky rice, chocolate buns, and any of the flowering teas!
  • Top pics: crispy prawn ball, honey roasted chicken puff, char sui bun, vegetable bun, and the edamame & truffle dumpling.
  • Remember to ask for 1/2 ice on your cocktail. While the ice is delicious and crushed, any normal person prefers more alcohol.
  • As being a Chinese, this place is very disappointing. The restaurant itself has atmosphere and huge space. However, it has limited food selection, no rice and noodle dishes, not authentic dim sum...
  • Get the small plates and enjoy a little bit of everything. Little food, big taste.
  • Great for dim sum anytime of the day but it is pretty pricey
  • Service kinda sucked, but our server was super nice, and the food was fantastic. As usual. Try the veggie puff pastry :)
  • Happy Hour M - F, 4-7pm $5 Cocktails & $3 dim sum. A must have experience.
  • Amazing cocktail selection - Vegetarian? Try the Veg Collection for only $17.
  • Chive dumplings are amazing!
  • Delicious! Def get the chicken and black pepper spring rolls. They are amazing! (Be ware, a little spicy!)
  • Get the lunch special - only $10 and cheaper than ordering a la carte! Also, wasabi amaretto sour is awesome.
  • It's still new so they run out of a LOT of stuff if you go there in the evening, BUT, the chicken puff, prawn balls, duck rolls + the Ginger and limoncello caipirinha are to die for.
