My friends and I eat here fairly regularly as Hutong have absolutely the best Peking duck in town. Service is lovely and, of course, the view is amazing.

If only they would change out the uncomfortable chairs, the experience would be perfect.

Went for my boyfriends 30th and it was amazing. All I did was comment that it was his 30th at the time of booking and they made such a fuss when we got there and said it was a special birthday so they got us a special table. I was even expecting one right by the window. They were amazing and the food was out of this world!!! The drinks were lovely and we got a lovely mango desert as it was his birthday. Thank you!

Great menu and loved the wine selection. The Hutong special dishes are fantastic and we tried a couple - they make a big statement in both how they're presented and how they taste. Quite expensive so this place is for special occasions. Would definitely go again

Rated it 5* overall.
Only constructive criticism is that
1. Did not expect the food to taste so NOT spicy. Was expecting Sichuan levels. Got Guangdong levels instead. Even the fish soup.
2. Should have been told the sliced duck was for the wraps. Instead was told shredded duck would be served later. Implying the sliced duck wasnt for the wrap. Dough!

Had a table at the edge of the window, so great view. Prawn eggrolls were perfect. Peking duck two ways--pancakes first, then lettuce with diced duck. Half duck served two. Noise level improved when two men decided to move to a different table--Yah!!! Otherwise it could have been a miserable visit. Wait staff was friendly and polite and very helpful. I wore a tie and jacket in respect of the dress code, but the people next to us--trainers, shorts, graphic tees. Dress up, people! Show some class! Especially at these prices. Aqua bar gives you the same views if you only want drinks. Men's room--don't miss--I won't ruin the surprise. I think at night the restaurant would have some extra romance. Cracked ice-style wall dividers and red lanterns added understated elegance. Really happy we did it once. Don't miss the Borough Market next door.

The incredible view as you enter the atrium on the 32nd Floor is a sign of things to come.

It is Chinese cuisine like no other. The Dim Sum is perfect. The duck is carved table-side, moist not crispy, and is served 2-ways. In pancakes and stir fried...Delicious!

Chilli chicken for the brave and fillet of beef in black bean sauce that melts in the mouth. The in-house sauces are fabulous, as is the home made ginger and honey ice cream to finish.

Yes it is expensive; drinks/wine very! But it is worth it for a spectacular setting for that special occasion. Service was very good and the Maitre de, David, was fantastically engaging!

This was our second visit to Hutong and again it did not disappoint. We opted for the £35.00/head set lunch + one extra beef dish which was a goodly feed and delicious! We actually moved from our table by the window as it was really rather hot and we were warned the sun would be moving round shortly and so would be even warmer. So we were much more comfortable away from the window - the view is all around you anyway. The staff were highly professional but friendly and not at all stuffy. We had a couple of beers each and shared a bottle of Malbec, which pushed the bill up of course but you pays your money & you takes your choice! We will return.

Lunch with friends. Absolutely delicious food, great selection, well presented, hot and fresh, perfect! Wine was amazing. I didn't like any of the cocktails I had, there wasn't any of your usual bar cocktails on the list, which was disappointing, but overall a most enjoyable lunch. Would definitely return.

Having been to dinner before, went back for dim sum. Similar to Yauatcha for pricing, but much more intense flavor profiles compared with the usual subtlety of Cantonese style cooking (particularly turnip puffs, mushroom buns, prawn dumplings), along with a high degree of refinement in execution. Tops as my favorite dim sum and fantastic bonus of views of London!

My wife and I celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary lunch here. Staff were extremely helpful and kind. Atmosphere and views were amazing. Food was sublime, we opted for the lunch menu offer which presented good value. Wine recommendations from waitress were also fantastic and were paired with the food perfectly.

Would definitely recommend, and am returning on Sunday afternoon for another visit for another special occasion with the family this weekend.
