Bar experience was a little poor as the service was virtually non-existent! However once in the restaurant we had a great table, excellent view, good food. What more could one wish for? We focussed on vegetarian and fish options and were pleasantly surprised with the choice and quality of the food.

    Regular reminders by email/ text to remind/ confirm/ cancel booking.

    It is a lovely location with good views from the 33rd floor ( note if you are just going for the view the viewing platform bookable separately via the "view from the Shard" website for payment. It is on a significantly higher level and has it's own lift arrangements ). You can have a drink in the bar beforehand but beware that it is a bit of a scrum for the premier seats by the window and you have to jump in when people move!

    The bar serves an interesting range of cocktails out of what look like jam jars - but the look works. The dim sum and subsequent dishes on the set lunchtime menu were tasty, well presented we left feeling full. We were also given a table by the window - a bit of a must if you are coming here, I think!! We had a bottle of rose to add to the experience - and that set the food off well.

    The staff were both polite and relatively freindly. I was a little disappointed that they automatically add a 12.5% "discretionary" service charge to the price. If I tip I want it to go to the people who served me - not directly to the restaurant proprietors. That felt like a stealth charge - I suppose you could have asked for it to be removed and left something on the table - but how awkward...?? Drops a star for this.

    Would use again and recommend - might try Aqua - which sits directly below Hutong on the next visit.

    The food was excellent & service impeccable. Wine and water were very expensive.
    Views were rewarding.

    We went to the Hutong for lunch and had the set menu. Both the food and service was fantastic and I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

    A group of us came to Hutong for a lunch and went for the 9-course lunch menu. The food was delicious and the decor is very authentic. Wonderful views as well. The only disappointment was the staff. Not particularly friendly or helpful and no smiles!
