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.
We currently do not accept OpenTable dining cheques.

Everything was great as soon as we entered thr restaurant. However the Reservations team are very poorly looking at clients requests.
I have put in a note as it was my mom's bday to have a table by the window, and that didn't happen although the restaurant brought a small dessert for her bday.
That is dissapointing as why else would you book a table at the Shard if not for the views.

Pros. We showed up 2 hours early for reservation. Very accommodating. Had mocktails drinks at the bar View was impressive. Despite the rain. Food was so good. Prices super high. Had to pay for the view, smile.

Restrooms had a cute stall door. Noted by my teen daughter.

Great food and fantastic atmosphere. Servers were extremely attentive and the food gets 2 thumbs up. We requested to be moved to a window table when one freed up, and they did that for us. Quality of food and the taste was awesome. Rather pricey at £25-£40 for main dishes, but the food speaks for itself and the atmosphere is second to none:

Hello, with my family we booked an afternoon lunch however we were seated in the bar area not the main dining area. Loud music , noise from the bar destroyed all the ambiance and relaxing atmosphere. Additionally the waitress was so pushing to book an order ( I guess she wanted it on her account before leaving) that we couldn’t focus on the menu and play with choices.

Dining option in the bar area should be cancelled or at least while booking guests should be warned that it won’t be what they expect: good ambience, cosy atmosphere.

Was such a shame a windy day as the whistle this creates through restaurant was ear piercing at times. I asked the manager to turn the music up which he did.

Food was really lovely but not sure why lettuce and lovely beans served up after duck is presented as normally altogether in a wrap.

Cocktails gorgeous- expensive treat but worth it

Brilliant experience. We were there to celebrate our anniversary along with one other couple. Food was fantastic. So were the cocktails. Service was good too. They took care of allergies and vegan requirements.
Roast duck was the best.

The food was average. There were a lot of staff standing around, but it took us 10mins to catch their attention for the bill and another 15mins for them to bring it. The view is spectacular, of course, if you are lucky to catch it on a sunny day

Fabulous location and a very good standard of food. If you like Yauatcha the food is of a similar standard. We were lucky to have a clear sunny day which afforded us great views. You pay a hefty premium for the privilege of eating and drinking at high altitude but as an special occasion place you are less likely to be concerned. I found the service a bit rushed and pushy but otherwise it was a very nice experience.

Awful service. Staff seem either not happy to work or had no customer service training whatsoever. Felt uncomfortable from the beginning until the end being served by the lady who waited our table.

The service is terrible, the hostesses are not very helpful. The food is not tasty and not all is available. I with my family arrived at the appointed hour and waited 40 minutes for our table. Came to try the vaunted duck and it was not available. I can’t recommend this restaurant.

Good, but not great. While the staff was more or less polite, it seemed as though they were all in a rush to get you in and out as quickly as possible - which can take away from a nice evening. View was beautiful and the food was very good. We were right up against the window, which provided an excellent view, but it can get a tad cold. You're going for the view more than anything else.

Great food, excellent service.
Things to improve: We were sitting close to the bar and most people would go past the bar and walk between restaurant tables (which is not pleasant when it happens a number of times during your meal) to sneak a look at the view on Tower Bridge. An extra screen should be considered to avoid disturbing restaurant guests.
Despite this, overall it was a great experience.

Food quality and dish sizing were above expectations. Most of the menu has a spicy element in it, but delicious nevertheless. Service could be somewhat improved for this price point, especially around menu knowledge. Price was on par with our expectations for such a location.
Would likely return for another special occasion.

Great dining place with a view, but food is kind of disappointed. The duck slice are cold and wraps are dry. Not the quality that we expected. Overall, high-end and decent Chinese food place to go to.
