What Insiders Are Saying
Hutong is the Shard’s ultra-swish Chinese restaurant, and if we were going to throw down on a pricey dinner with a view, this would be on our list.
Excellent views, good and drinks. Will def go back soon.
We sat on an outside window so the view was good but it felt like too close to the back wall like we were in a corridor
The food was excellent the staff very helpful I felt the wine was out priced for what it was
It was my girlfriends birthday and the service , food and view was brilliant !
The food was really nice and tasty and even the portions are good comparing to other fancy Chinese restaurants in London. I would definitely recommend the Red lantern, and crispy prawns.
The view is spectacular, plus we had the chance to get a window table.
On the other hand, I was a bit disappointed cause I specified on my booking that it’s gonna be a birthday dinner, so I was expecting them to bring a small cake with a candle or something symbolic, like they always do in all big restaurants, but they didn’t 😌
The food was mediocre. Though the table we were assigned had a phenomenol view, I felt that we were seated in a very cramped space since right behind me was a wooden wall. Therefore I was not able to slide my chair back and would bang into thw table whenever I would get up. The service was very good but the only issue I had was that the server we had was not very fluent in english and therefore I felt that there was a slight communication gap, as she could answer some of my questions. The food was nothing exceptional though the presentation was pretty good.
Have already recommended
Would have preferred view side table but were not given a choice
Felt slightly rushed when orders were taken
Hutong is on the 33rd floor of The Shard. The view is sensational and the ambiance rather unworldly. As a restaurant, the food is well prepared and very well presented, if on the expensive side. A good venue for a special lunch.
I was enchanted to be there the view was really great
The service is good.
Great service and delicious food. I’m going back!
Had an amazing time celebrating our engagement! Wonderful food, great views, and wonderful service!
The restaurant was good. Not great. The food was good. Not great. Whilst the views seem to be the draw, I’m glad the waitstaff actively remove people from the dining room that just want to take pictures.
Great food, great service and great view if London. They were very accommodating for our baby.
The 33rd floor on the Shard is a delightful place to have lunch with friends and family. Combined with the "Experience" menu, which took ordering out of our hands, we had a great time. The service was cheery and impeccable. The food was great. Will love to come back again.
Definitely a place you must dine at when in London. Beautiful at night. The food is superb and the staff is wonderful. The view is breathtaking.
I have been a few times and I am never disappointed with their exceptional food...
We went to Hutong for my birthday and to help me celebrate they gave me a window table. On top of that, they even gave be a cake with candle on the house.
The view from the restaurant was fantastic and we were left to enjoy the view until we decide to leave. They only gave us the bill when we ,asked for it.
Neither cheap nor especially expensive, we considered this very good value for money. The food was delicious and we were surprised how full we felt at the end of the meal. Service for the delightful Xin was exemplary. She never seemed rushed even though there were lots of other tables she was attending to. her friendliness really added value to our experience.
good view and better food supposed
waitress slip over the juice over my hand and clothes
Terrible service! Server spilled a dish all over and never picked up. Also another server broke a glass.
Amazing ambience and service was food. Food was average. Did not like the soft shell crabs but Peking duck was good. However, you are paying more for the setting than the food as there are many restaurants with similar/better food for a fraction of the price
The food was delicious at Hutong. We went for the signature menu which consisted of various amazing dumplings to start, followed by soft tasty duck pancakes. Bass and aubergine tempura next.. lovely and ‘warm’! Followed by soup and dessert.. all of which was lovely. I feel like they’re missing a trick though as the staff really aren’t up to scratch. Our main server was lovely, a little Chinese lady who was brilliant.. everyone else was below par. We were ignored by two members of staff when we arrived, during food service, food was spilt on the table and floor, they were not particularly friendly ... it was more the type of service you would expect in a much cheaper restaurant. Personally I think the standard of service should reflect the price they charge.
Although (as they say) all seats have a view, half are set back so you can’t really appreciate it. We asked to be moved when a table came available by the window and out little lady made it happen. All in all, it was an enjoyable lunch but I wouldn’t rush back when there are other places to visit.
Amazing food - amazing views and amazing service! I will be recommending.
Tip tip: request a river view table
Cocktails, food and presentation were amazing. Atmosphere is also obviously amazing as you've got an amazing view of London.
Das Hutong wurde uns von Kollegen empfohlen, und wir haben diesen Besuch genossen. Der Empfang war freundlich, das Essen hervorragend, und die Aussicht war phenomenal.
Wir hatten eine nette Bedienung, und durften den Tisch wechseln, als ein Tisch am Fenster frei wurde. Leider konnten wir weder das Menu, noch die Peking-Ente wählen, weil wir nicht 2 Personen waren, die das Gleiche essen wollten. Diese Speisen sind nur für 2 Personen möglich.
Sonst war alles ausgezeichnet, und das Ambiente war gemütlich, mit angenehmer Hintergrundmusik.
Wir werden dorthin zurückgehen.
Iconic London skyline views with a intimate (dark) setting. The must-have roast duck is served two ways, first with pancakes and the second stir fried with green beans. Pork dumplings for starters were succulent and juicy with a craving for more. Egg yolk prawns were light and crispy. Overall, a memorable meal with great views. Recommended for special occasions.
Amazing food. Moved us to a table we’d requested which was very nice of them. Accommodating for my girlfriend who was on crutches. Brought out a surprise birthday treat for her too which was very nice of them. Very good service. Only slight issue was drinks were quite slow to come out but other than that fantastic
We were a party of 4 one of whom was a birthday Gal
The table was booked for 2 pm and we ordered the set menu and drank beer
The service was quick and the lunch consisted of around 6 small but tasty dishes
In the cantonese style. Especially nice was the dim sum dish
The lunch took around 2 hours and as we were in no hurry this was fine
Birthday Gal even got a small dish with candle to bolw out which was annicentouch
Best of all was the stunning view all over london and like all good vistors our
Iphones were kept busy taking memorable pictures
Well done Hutong!
It was an amazing lunch. The team at Hutong were super kind. It was my mums birthday and she loved it!
Service wasn’t great and neither was our main. Very expensive so would expect better TBH. Great view and nice table near the window.
Not in a hurry to go back.
We waited it for over 3 hours for our main course. The starters arrived on time however the main course took a long time. Food was alright, not too great. The staff was very friendly. Not worth spending £100 and asking about the food all the time
The set menu was a very uninspiring selection of dishes and I wish we'd ordered a la carte as everyone else's food looked nicer!
Great view. Overall the food is good, but the steam rice quality is not good.
Service is terrible
Longing for a good Peking duck, disappointing and sparse
We had fine the view was breathtaking however the food was average , not much variety for those who eat chicken and not any other source of meat or fish. Other than that everything was nice. Coke was over priced for £4 a glass. But the birthday plate was free so that was nice of them.
Everything was really nice. We went for the lunch tasting menu, the amount of food and the quality of this was quite good. We add couple of dishes extra: crispy prawn roll and dumpling of scallop and XO sauce which were worthy. Actually the crispy prawn were our favourite! Also de Iberian pork with chili mayo in the menu it's outstanding.
The service was really nice, thanks Nuno the sommelier for being so kind and helpful he did and very nice job!
Then about the ambience...it's the shard, so you can imagine!
Place to recommend and of course to come back!
Thoroughly enjoyed lunch here last Saturday. Of course the view was great (even on a grey winters day), but the star of the show was the food. Soft shell crab and beef rib were amazing mains, dimsung platter for starters was delicious.
