Situated on level 33 of The Shard, Hutong at The Shard serves the fascinating and diverse cuisines of Northern China and is based on the much-loved restaurant of the same name in Hong Kong. Hutong at The Shard’s cuisine takes its inspiration from the dishes served in the imperial palaces of what was then Peking. Based on the ‘Lu school’ cuisine of Shandong Province, the menu artfully captures the subtlety and surprises of Northern Chinese cooking. A cocktail selection inspired by ingredients used in traditional Chinese medicine and stunning interior, complete with traditional Chinese red lanterns and beautiful hand-carved wood-panelled ‘Moon Gates’, offer London diners a new destination restaurant with panoramic views over London’s skyline.
We currently do not accept OpenTable dining cheques.

We was seated in a nice cabana and had a wonderful experience, on this clear bright day. The beef Tenderloin tossed in green chilly was particularly tasty.

Service was excellent.

Really downgraded... People in other tables were so rude and noisy but no one did anything about it. The place is amazing, but the atmosphere was totally ruined.

Pleasant. Nice food but doesn’t justify the price tag. £90 for the tasting menu was excessive based on meal. Everything was very nice but clearly paying for the view.

Food was ok and the service was good. Naturally you’re paying for the views rather than the food. It’s the classic tourist place. Depends what you’re looking for. Soft shell crab was delicious!

The first I was sat in front of the sun, which management has to think as it very feels uncomfortable. I asked to put blinds down, but the open corners still blind my eyes, so I have asked to have another table, which is nice they provide another one.
It was a dating with the partner. We’ve ordered starters, calamari flowers and king crab & chilled tofu, which was really nice to be honest. Then mains : I’ve ordered lobster and the first thing which waiter was asked me, if I’m aware about the price, which is absolutely unprofessional, He just made us feel poor that we can’t pay the bill (and price was shown and the menu anyways). My partner ordered Red lantern, crispy soft crab - which was absolutely non sense, the presentation of dish is pure, like a big old fashion kettle covering all table so we even had no space for another dishes. The dish was absolutely not crispy, just dry, And absolutely no taste. I would even say it’s a dry pepper was served with a bit of crumbs (looking as fried chicken legs). Lobster was ok, I’m enjoyed it, but also was very dry, and not for that value.
The waitress even wasn’t bothered to ask if our food was ok, no check backs at all. Very disappointed, spend £300 for 2hours, and not excited about this place at all, to compare with Aqua or Gong. Sorry, but I might never come back to this restaurant again, rather go to the same building but different restaurant. View is a nice, as all Shard venues got them.
Sorry I’m not the person ever leaving complaints, but this experience wasn’t my best.
P.s.: Pure range of non-alcoholic cocktails, but barmen was really cool and made perfect one on request!

Amazing food as always. But service is very pushy. The waiting staff kept coming in to ask if we needed anything. We said we will order once ready. And then still kept coming. And then at one point said we have only 2 hours total for the table. Which is fine, but the issue is we were only 45 mins into our dining!

But otherwise the food is deliciously spicy. Its disappointing they had limited menu because of COVID which gets even more limited for vegetarians like me. But the options they had very really delicious!

The starters were great, really set up our expectations for the mains. However the mains didn’t quite live up to the expectations. Overall we had an amazing time. Great service. Amazing view.

It is worth visiting the restaurant just for the views alone. A chic place filled with beautiful people taking selfies. However, it is a great place. The decor and food are amazing and the London skyline has never looked so good.

A place you should say you have eaten at.

Below average food. Over priced. Notified the restaurant early that it was my son’s 13th birthday and we didn’t even get a candle on his dessert. We were really looking forward to it but left disappointed with the whole experience.

Due to social distancing the restaurant was a bit quiet, but the view was spectacular. Food was excellent - easily the best Chinese food I have had in London (I lived in China for 20 years, so I might be a bit more critical than many people!). Service was excellent and only slightly impacted by covid related measures. Normally Hutong is booked well in advance, so now is a good chance to go at short notice.

Everything was great as soon as we entered thr restaurant. However the Reservations team are very poorly looking at clients requests.
I have put in a note as it was my mom's bday to have a table by the window, and that didn't happen although the restaurant brought a small dessert for her bday.
That is dissapointing as why else would you book a table at the Shard if not for the views.

Pros. We showed up 2 hours early for reservation. Very accommodating. Had mocktails drinks at the bar View was impressive. Despite the rain. Food was so good. Prices super high. Had to pay for the view, smile.

Restrooms had a cute stall door. Noted by my teen daughter.

Great food and fantastic atmosphere. Servers were extremely attentive and the food gets 2 thumbs up. We requested to be moved to a window table when one freed up, and they did that for us. Quality of food and the taste was awesome. Rather pricey at £25-£40 for main dishes, but the food speaks for itself and the atmosphere is second to none:

Hello, with my family we booked an afternoon lunch however we were seated in the bar area not the main dining area. Loud music , noise from the bar destroyed all the ambiance and relaxing atmosphere. Additionally the waitress was so pushing to book an order ( I guess she wanted it on her account before leaving) that we couldn’t focus on the menu and play with choices.

Dining option in the bar area should be cancelled or at least while booking guests should be warned that it won’t be what they expect: good ambience, cosy atmosphere.

Was such a shame a windy day as the whistle this creates through restaurant was ear piercing at times. I asked the manager to turn the music up which he did.

Food was really lovely but not sure why lettuce and lovely beans served up after duck is presented as normally altogether in a wrap.

Cocktails gorgeous- expensive treat but worth it

Brilliant experience. We were there to celebrate our anniversary along with one other couple. Food was fantastic. So were the cocktails. Service was good too. They took care of allergies and vegan requirements.
Roast duck was the best.

The food was average. There were a lot of staff standing around, but it took us 10mins to catch their attention for the bill and another 15mins for them to bring it. The view is spectacular, of course, if you are lucky to catch it on a sunny day
