Ping Pong to open ninth London restaurant

Restaurant group Ping Pong is set to open its ninth restaurant in London, this time in Westfield Shepherd's Bush.

The new restaurant, which like its sister sites will serve dim sum, Chinese teas and cocktails, occupies around 5,800 sq ft of space, including a terrace bar, and sits on the lower Southern Terrace leading up to the shopping centre.

It will accommodate around 180 seats and is scheduled to open in early September.

This will be the first of two new openings planned for this tax year as well as discussions taking place regarding Ping Pong's sites in the US, with further expansion overseas being a possibility, according to the company.

Art Sagiryan, CEO of Ping Pong, said: "Following the success of Ping Pong in Westfield Stratford we felt that the site in Shepherd's Bush would be an optimum location for us. We have built a strong relationship with the Westfield team over the last year and are very excited to be able to work with them again on this new business opportunity. We have ambitions to open one more restaurant before the end of our financial year, in April 2016, as well as a further two or three in next year. We very much look forward to welcoming our customers to the new restaurant."

The news comes after Ping Pong announced a 10% rise in like-for-like sales and a 32% increase in operating EBITDA in the 12 months to April 2015, which the company said indicated a "transformational" year.
