Ping Wong founded The Ugly Dumplings street food stall in December 2015. Since then, The Ugly Dumplings have been invited to participate in a number of high-profile street food markets, namely The Partridge’s Market at Duke of York Square in Chelsea, Cardinal Place in Victoria and St. James’ Piccadilly as well as Carnaby Street Eat and Primrose Hill festivals, both of which required serving over a thousand customers in a day.

Ping joined forces with Philipp to what they both believed was the next logical step – establishing a sit-down casual dining brand that primarily focused on dumplings. That's how Ugly Dumpling hatched in Carnaby in July 2017.

Head Chef Andrew Mead was brought in to expand the menu from Asian fusion to what we call global fusion. We tested hundreds of combinations to see what filling works within a pan-fried dumpling, and we never stopped! Side dishes were carefully selected to accompany our delicious dumplings.
