Restaurant description

Bringing ground-breaking northern Chinese cuisine to one of London's most famous buildings, Hutong is housed on the 33rd floor of The Shard. From the sultry dining room at this restaurant in The Shard, floor-to-ceiling windows frame jaw-dropping views of the city. Enjoy creations inspired by dishes from the imperial palaces of Peking.

Inspired by its famous namesake restaurant in Hong Kong, the Hutong menu features favourite northern Chinese recipes served with contemporary flair. Head Chef and Sifu ('master' in traditional Chinese culture), Fei Wang, showcases his vast culinary experience honed across China and the UK. Enjoy acclaimed signature dishes at this Shard restaurant, like Chinese asparagus heart with hula dressing, and Red Star noodles: watch the waiter open a crown of red peppers to unveil a Sichuan broth with perfectly steamed halibut, rice noodles and gong vegetables. Hutong restaurant at The Shard in London also offers a delicately crafted selection of dim sum, and the menu's showstopper dish is Sichuan-style deep fried lobster, served with fresh red and green chillies, dried garlic and salted crispy black beans.

Offsetting its glittering glass façade, the Hutong dining room features traditional oriental décor, like smooth dark-wood panelling, and delicate patterned lanterns. Head to the glossy Shanghai Bar at The Shard for unrivalled views of the London skyline, and enjoy oriental-style cocktail mixes inspired by traditional Chinese medicine.

    The location is the star here. We had a lovely evening. It’s expensive, but it was for an 18th. Drinks service was a bit slow, table service very attentive. Good food. The only downside was the disgusting lavatories. Broken loo seats and generally really shabby, used towels overflowing in the bins. Not nice, let’s the place down

    It was an 18th birthday celebration. Great view of London, great ambiance. Food was delicious especially soft shell crab & crispy duck which came in two stages. Only negative was the toilet- needs updating & lighting.

    good table by the window, good food. We waited too long for our coats when we left. It took for ever for them to bring them to us.

    Very disappointed with the quality of food at Hutong. We had the set menu which at £88 we had high expectations, however the food was mediocre. You are paying for the view so my advice would be to come up to Aqua for a drink which would work out much cheaper.

    The dining experience was amazing and the views are lovely, so the restaurant is worth a visit for that definitely. But the food was a big let down, not worth the money whatsoever.

    Really nice restaurant decor and views. Overall a nice experience, the lunch menu was a decent price however for the same money I feel like I could have got a much more enjoyable meal elsewhere. The dim sum was an odd choice of flavour but cooked well! Unfortunately I found a stone in mine (the staff were very apologetic and did discount our drinks) The beef salad was dry. The mains of fried fish, rice and vegetables were ok but not something I would order again. There’s a lot of chilli on everything, luckily we liked that! The dessert - a fried rice square was awful, a very aquired taste and I’m surprised that the restaurant would serve that over something more palatable. We were celebrating a birthday and they brought out a mango pudding with a candle in which was really nice! I wouldn’t go back we but has a nice experience and the staff were very friendly and helpful but I personally would rather eat in Chinatown for that type of menu.
