Contemporary Asian
Little Hutong is one of Sydney's best Modern Asian restaurants, known for our authentic and innovative approach to South East Asian cuisine. We created a dining experience that has an authentic and high standards approach to South East Asian cuisine and a unique approach to how we fuse Eastern flavours and cuisine with Western culinary techniques and ingredients. Ultimately the priority is on taste and flavour that is tasty, impressive and satisfying.

We learn and borrow from the best of the Asian cuisines - Penang, Japanese, Chinese, Indonesian and Peranakan food - and at times fuse them with Western cuisine. “Hutong”, by definition, is a narrow lane or alleyway in Beijing City. In Ancient China, many of the recipes, tastes and cooking styles were formulated and eventuated in these back lanes and alleyways. In South East Asia, they gave rise to the “mamak” stalls, Peranakan cuisines and “hawker” food. We hold dear to these traditions as a standard to strive for at Little Hutong.

An absolute feast. The food is amazing and the service is equally wonderful. Charming little restaurant but full of ambiance and an excellent wine list.
Family run restaurant and very welcoming - do yourself a favour and try it out. It’s now become a favourite place to dine.

Very very disappointed. Talked this restaurant very highly and organised a mums night. I even sent them the Christmas set menu special of $50 each. Once we got there, we were advised that half of the cocktails on the menu were not available. We settled for margaritas, not cheap and definitely not a margarita. It was cordial with no salt around the rim. The drinks were so bad that we ended up getting alcohol from the bottle shop. Then we were advised that the set menu was not available. The have that we booked weeks in advance, they could have advised us that there some of the menu was not available. We paid a total of $400 for a night was bitterly disappointed in.
