Situated on level 33 of The Shard, Hutong at The Shard serves the fascinating and diverse cuisines of Northern China and is based on the much-loved restaurant of the same name in Hong Kong. Hutong at The Shard’s cuisine takes its inspiration from the dishes served in the imperial palaces of what was then Peking. Based on the ‘Lu school’ cuisine of Shandong Province, the menu artfully captures the subtlety and surprises of Northern Chinese cooking. A cocktail selection inspired by ingredients used in traditional Chinese medicine and stunning interior, complete with traditional Chinese red lanterns and beautiful hand-carved wood-panelled ‘Moon Gates’, offer London diners a new destination restaurant with panoramic views over London’s skyline.

Luckily we have been seated by the window and the view was breathtaking! The food was good. Particularly impressed by the Lobster Xiao Long Bao and the Hutong Fried Rice. Definitely worth going!

I like the decoration style very much but it’s not quite Chinese taste,maybe more suitable for western taste. Of course you’re done very well in Chinese restaurants.

Great view and tasting menu for special occasions but the service is a little hit and miss. Being Asian and understanding the dining culture very well, the wrong spoons were used to serve certain dishes like soup. The waiter was extremely friendly but greets and gives remarks in Italian (a little odd for a Chinese restaurant). Still recommended as it's a good dining experience.

My fiancé’s birthday. We arrived at 15.30 and were seated immediately. Upon ordering our starters we were asked to order our mains straight away as the kitchen will be closing (16.00). This was quite sad as we had just arrived and were enjoying the moment taking in the amazing views and enjoying each other’s company. This effectively indirectly speeded up or time and having to order the food quickly without being able to ask the waitress about individual dishes.
Apart from this the occasion was beautiful and the location was unreal.
It would be a good idea that the restaurant deliver more information about the dining time and kitchen opening and closing times.

We had a lovely lunch at Hutong. The staff were super, helpful but not overbearing. The food was a great spicy trip to taste a few special things - ill definitely be back for more. The mango dessert was stunning! Views of course were excellent.

We took my father for Sunday lunch and had an amazing time. As we made a special request for a nice table we were delighted to find ourselves sitting next to a bay window overlooking Borough Market! Wonderful staff and Sommerlier. Will definitely return!

Amazing ambience and a very good value for money Lunch Tasting Experience. The food was really delicious and the wine list to pair it with was extensive and had some really excellent wines (even though a little on the high end in terms of price). Definitely worth the money - especially given the views!

I wouldn’t hesitate if i say Hutong is one of the best Chinese restaurant that ever seen and visited in London , food, service, value and great staff with lovely smiles makes you shy to give them less than 100%. Hutong the one and the only from today.

It’s a big restaurant...perhaps too big especially when less than half full. I was surprised that it was as when I booked there were limited options for times.

The service was a little perfunctory and they couldn’t do a set menu for one, which as one of us was vegetarian and the other not, made it challenging choosing from the very long menu..which is the whole point of set menus I thought.

In the end we shared the vegetarian set menu with an additional order of soft shark crab, which was really good, in fact all the food was good.

Not cheap but it’s halfway up the shard so what go you expect?

Worst experience ever ! The waiter turned away while we’re still odering food and the new waitress didn’t ask him what we ordered so our mains were missing ! They didnt even say sorry ! We had to wait forever for spoons . The food are very salty and not even that great . Such a shame for this pricing . Should Only come here for the view not the food or service !

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!

Hutong was pleasant, however a bit chaotic upon arrival, we stood for circa 10 minutes at the front desk waiting to be seated whilst a few members of staff fussed over a party in front who seemed to be being indecisive about something or other. We also had to wait a further 10 minutes or so to be offered a menu after being seated, which I eventually after for, but after that the service improved.
The view was lovely and the food was delicious, as you would expect for the price. The decor was nice although it was very, very cold inside!
