Fast Track 100

This dim sum chain has taken its place with the likes of Wagamama and Yo! Sushi as a popular destination for Londoners who enjoy novelty alongwith reasonable prices. Founded by former Nobu restaurant manager Kurt Zdesar in 2004, Ping Pong has 11 outlets in London serving Asian dim sum, fragrant teas and cocktails. Hosting Ping Pong parties for groups of eight or more has helped to keep the dining rooms packed, and sales have soared 91% a year from £1.5m in 2005 to an annualised £10.6m in 2008.
