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.

    Stunning views, nice food, good service, but extremely pricey. Duck pancakes are delicious.

    Excellent service and views. Fav was the crispy duck & soft shell crab. Would just say that on set menu the extra hot beef dish should not be available as not to everyone’s taste. But other than that we will be back

    Excellent food, great value for a tasting menu. Our waiter was not as enthusiastic/pleasant/warm friendly as I have experienced in other fine dining restaurants. Given the fact that it was not a busy period (lunch time at 2.30pm) - you would expect that the waiting staff would be available to take the time out to provide that special customer service that important to a fine dining ambient service, where you don't just come for the food, you come for the whole experience. We also waited for our bill a while, and in the end my partner went up to the waiting staff desk to pay.

    Not worth the money. Ridiculously overpriced for the service, food and drinks received.

    The food was good but the service was poor for what you would expect at the Shard. My daughter also booked this as a surprise and told us after she requested an Anniversary dessert plate for us but we didn’t receive this. It’s a shame the service isn’t good enough when you pay such premium prices.

    Had the set lunch meal it was amazing Duck was fabulous and the aubergines fantastic we were surprised how big the portions were as I had two larger appetite individuals as my guests I was very surprised when they couldn’t finish The server was really attentive and explained ingredients as one of the group doesn’t eat pork which was easily accommodated for. He was very friendly and efficient. Loved the food, the service and amazing experience which was reinforced by the very friendly staff
