Chinese
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.

Visited Hutong for a birthday treat. The whole experience was amazing! Excellent service, stunning views and the most delicious food. Pricey, but well worth every penny for an unforgettable meal. Would highly recommend.

You do get good portions of food. Value for money. Staff are pleasant and helpful. Could only have starter and main and could hardly finish the main. One of my friends was vegan and her meals were so delicious I didn’t even miss the meat when I tasted it. Need an upgrade on the cocktail list. Apart from that I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Service was poor, no real engagement from team. Requested a table by the window didn’t provided or mentioned it. Pushed us to leave while we have not finished desert yet. I understand every table has a time slot but chasing customer to leave while there’s still food on the table was just poor service. Takeaway in paper boxes but no bags provided, we had to carry 3 boxes of food while leaving. Hygiene wise, Saw them cleaning table next to us using only paper, not disinfection or spray. No hand sanitiser provided on the table, very rare considering prices you pay for and all other similar priced restaurants in London are offering. We’re used male and female toilets both were cramped and dirty. Lots of people taking photos in toilet and no traffic management nor timely cleaning.
Food wise, expensive for the average quality, it makes up with a view. Far away from authentic food and decent experience. Not going back soon or recommending it to others.

We had a very pleasant experience at Hutong. It wasn’t cheap but the service was excellent, staff were very attentive and friendly, food was authentic (the duck is a must!) and the ambience was fantastic (we had a table by the window so the view was great). Lastly, obviously there was no open window but I could feel that the place was well-ventilated. Would be coming back. And thank you to the staff from Indonesia (didn’t get his name) who gave my daughter a complimentary dessert with a candle (we were there to celebrate her exam results).

We spent our anniversary with our two little ones. We where abit nervous taking them but the staff where so good with them made them feel welcome. We had the vegetarian lunch menu and ordered some seperate noodles and duck for the kids which the waiter suggested. There was so much food and it was all so tasty! They brought out an anniversary dessert which was a very kind gesture. Only negative was I wish they had an attendant keeping the toilets clean but if a let down. But overall very good experience.

I visited Hutong for a pre birthday celebration as Boris Johnson had announced we were going into a second lockdown which would see me celebrate my birthday alone. The ambience was very nice however our food and drinks were unsatisfactory. Our waiter wasn’t the friendliest either. Thankful for great company that made this experience because it definitely was not the food and the service.

Dining at Hutong’s is always a wonderful experience for the senses. As well as delicious food to feast upon, you are accompanied by great service and magnificent views of London.
We always leave Hutong’s with a feeling of ‘what a wonderful treat’
Looking forward to returning again when able.

Nice ambience, great views and friendly staff. Food was good - not exceptional, but good.
Very expensive (£250 for dinner for 2 - cheapest bottle of wine over £60).
Priced at Michelin level but not really that standard.
Our table for 2 had one chair with its back to the view which wasn't ideal when you are paying for the view!

There is no doubt Hutong is a stunning restaurant and we were lucky enough to be given a window seat. We started with dim sum platter which were delicious, then Duck, then soft shell crabs -my husband had 1 type of veggie dim sum , a tofu dish and chefs rice without egg. We were advised by waitress we could order more but felt so rushed we were only in restaurant for probably 11/2 hours. Our pancakes for duck were stone cold which was not great and duck not really hot. Soft shell crabs were really good but only 2 of us were eating them and so we had 6 and no rice/noodles or anything else suggested even though I asked. We had nice desserts and a little free birthday desert.basically for what we paid it was very average apart from setting which was fabulous-I feel it is all about the turnover of customers and we wouldn’t go back or recommend it. It wasn’t bad, our waitress was pleasant, food was tasty but......is it special-no! Is it expensive for what it is-yes!

Attended Hutong for a friends birthday and the service was poor from our server. The food/starters are not freshly cooked. The ratio of dried chilli to protein is crazy! So much dried chilli and barely any protein.

As a customer who’s been there before i was disappointed because i spent the same but the service was under expectations. The food menu is very limited which I wasn’t told of when i called them few times prior my arrival, the birthday cake for my junior was just handed on the table, no happy birthday song, no nothing unlike on previous occasions when we’ve been there for birthday occasions. Also, you have no paper menu...you have to scan a bar code on the table and then you have to remember or write down what you want because there’s no way of selecting anything on that menu, is just read only. The good thing is the atmosphere which is still very nice, the food is nice even tho the menu is very limited. Drinks very limited aswell, only 1 type of beer for example. And the main issue was that although they knew i will bring my 8 years old with me it was no food for him. All the chicken is marinated and spicy and they didn’t have any plain chicken for him for example, very very limited menu for him. Overall, avoid Hutong during Covid as if you’ve been there before you will be disappointed.

Our welcome was friendly and current covid 19 procedures evident and explained to us. The menu was varied and absolutely delicious and I would recommend the cocktails, including non alcoholic ones. A special mention should be made to Tiziana who noticed the sun was in my eyes and lowered the window blind and then checked I was comfortable. The views as always were outstanding and all in all, a very memorable occasion.
