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.

A spectacular addition to the London restaurant scene, Hutong restaurant at The Shard is found adjacent to London Bridge Tube and Train stations.

    We had a seat at the window which was fantastic. Every seat has a pretty good view however. Food was ok but nothing to write home about. We had the fixed lunch menu for £39 including glass of bubbly. The dim sum was excellent but mid course was beef salad which was not so good - just slices of cold beef with chillies and fresh coriander. I would suggest vegetables course instead. Sea bass was in breadcrumb so not very imaginative. Greens were in sweet chilli sauce (same sauce as you can get in supermarket) and were impossible to cut so tricky with chopsticks. Perhaps the a la carte menu is better but I'm not inclined to go back for rhe food, only the location/view which is worth it on its own.

    Opted for the set menu for lunch. Varied and included signature duck and enough for two people to share, Service was excellent and food came at the pace requested so never felt rushed. Wine steward excellent and was knowledgeable.

    We had the set lunch and sparkling wine. All the food was served well and was very tasty. This was food we might not normally order, however, it was all lovely!

    Food delicious. Waiter really helpful - eg told us one portion of rice would be enough for 5 of us and it was plenty - we couldn't finish it!! We were lucky to get a table by window on a really sunny clear day and saw sun set! Views from toilets fantastic too! Suggest arriving at least half hour before booking to allow for security checks. Disappointed not to be able to put confetti on table as we were celebrating my daughter's 21st - nor could we take a helium balloon to table but she was given a complimentary dessert! It was an otherwise perfect day!

    Lovely dining experience for my husband and I’s anniversary. Felt truly special. We opted for the signature lunch menu which was delicious. The Peking duck was out of this world, would return just for this dish. Cocktails were also great. Pricy but worth it. Only thing I would that the two hour time slot isn’t enough.. we felt rushed toward the end, they should increase this by at least half an hour for ease.
