    On arrival we were given a window table as requested, which was great as the weather was good so the view was amazing. The waiter was very pleasant and helpful with recommended choices. All the food was lovely and well presented. The drinks were very slow in coming and also quite expensive for what you get but that's to be expected in central London. The restaurant overall was a little disappointing in decor, a little tired looking and not as opulent as you would expect in the Shard. Overall a pleasant experience.

    Delightful experience. Everyone was friendly and polite, especially our waiter, Kevin. We were celebrating a birthday and it was great to have a candle and waiters singing happy birthday to my embarrassed nephew. The dim sums were really tasty and interesting, well served and scrumptious. The view was spectacular. Every little detail was superb.

    The food we ate at Friday lunch at Hutong in the Shard was of a high standard, but the lunch experience itself was much less good.

    We both had the 5 Dim Sum for £28 deal, and there was plenty of food provided that was interesting and varied. However, the time slot allocated for your meal is made very clear, and you are encouraged to order, eat, pay and go.

    Perhaps I should not have been surprised when one of the very uncomfortable, wooden, folding chairs collapsed under a guest., However this must be a frequent event as there was no apology to the lady who landed in a heap on the floor, and none of the staff rushed to her aid, She was just pushed into another identical chair and these are obviously designed to discourage a leisurely meal, or any level of comfort for the seated guests..

    The waiters were keen to refill our wine glasses unnecessarily, but they were very slow to refill water glasses with tap water, even when requested. Is there a reason for this I wonder??

    Do be careful if you do go to this restaurant not to drop a chop stick, as I unfortunately did. The only way to get a clean one was to find an unused place setting and to help myself from there, as the passing staff just ignored my requests for a clean chopstick.

    We will not be returning, as I prefer to eat where I am made to feel welcome and valued. There may be a wonderful view from this restaurant, but we could see little of it from our table, so we will also not worry about not seeing the London sky line again from this perspective.

    Hutong, dim sum lunch - would suggest a pre lunch cocktail as the bar below hutong as the views are more favourable
