  • The manager shouts that this is what happens when someone orders the cheapest wine from the menu

  • Each of the dish was appealing and appetizing but by the end we could not finish our soft shell crab and we asked if we could get it packed and they simply refused

  • The place offers a spectacular view of the city and the atmosphere here is quite good

  • The Peking duck is a must have here and is one of the best I have ever had in the city

  • The drinks were awesome and the best I had ever tasted

  • The service was a little slow but the staff was quite warm and friendly

  • The ambience was wonderful with amazing views and wonderful interiors

  • The view here is incredibly amazing

  • Probably the best one in this area

  • The cocktail menu is quite varied and extensive

  • The starters are well presented and look very good

  • They also managed t delight us with their delicious taste

  • The main course was not special

  • I recently tried this bar and was quite disappointed with the service

  • The service was very slow for which the staff did not seem apologetic

  • The drinks were fine but nothing exceptional which could not be found in any other bar

  • The ambience was fine and the crowd was also pretty decent

  • Hutong (London Bridge) is definitely worth a visit

  • We came to Hutong (London Bridge) and were not disappointed

  • Duck rolls and prawns were good as well

  • If you are visiting Hutong (London Bridge) to try out some really amazing Chinese food then you are sadly mistaken

  • The food that is being offered is fresh but the taste is just about average

  • The management wanted to capitalize on the fact that they are located at one of the most wonderful locations but that does not compensate for the average taste of the food

  • Especially the pork and duck which was cooked to perfection

  • The service was quite decent as well

  • The ambience was great with beautiful decor and amazing views from the place

  • We started with a few drinks which were quite good and refreshing

  • The appetizers were also delicious and so was the main course

  • All the dishes were very well prepared and well executed

  • Even though the food is a bit overpriced

  • The service was good and faultless

  • The ambience was great with amazing views and beautiful decor

  • The food was excellent and was cooked to perfection

  • The service I felt was not that good

  • The prices were quite high but still I would love to go to Hutong (London Bridge) again and would recommend others to try it as well

  • If you are wanting to explore a place where you can dine out and at the same time enjoy the wonderful view then this is just the right place

  • I believe that the Peeking duck is an absolutely must order

  • My only concern is that to be able to get yourself a table you have to book it a month in advance

  • They served chicken thinking it is a vegetarian

  • This is not acceptable on the part of the manager who was unapologetic about it

  • The toilets were dirty and the whole place is messy

  • The service was exceptional and the experience would have been excellent had it not been for the oily food that I ate

  • Typically Chinese food tends to get greasy but places like these are suppose to make better food

  • The view of Hutong (London Bridge) is enticing and stunning

  • I and my partner visited Hutong (London Bridge) to celebrate his new job and honestly Hutong (London Bridge) screwed it all up with its pricing

  • If you are in the mood to celebrate a special occasion then there is no better place than this one

  • You could be fortunate enough to see the lovely sun set and you could be seated with your closest set of friends with a glass of wine to just live the moment

  • If you are in the mood to celebrate with a huge group of people and want you own private space then this is the best place to be

  • You can enjoy a wholesome meal and the best part is that you can enjoy a magnificent view from the 33 rd floor

  • The Chinese food offered here is authentic and a treat for the taste buds

  • The restaurant is situated on the level 33 of Shard and provides a spectacular view and a romantic atmosphere

  • Everything was promptly served to our table and the service was great

  • Overall it was a wonderful dinner and a fantastic experience

  • We were greeted with a cocktail menu which included a variety of non alcholic cocktails

  • Next to come were the juciest prawns which each one filled your mouth

  • Red bean paste biscuit with ginger ice cream

  • As someone who was not a fan of red bean or ginger

  • Located on one of the top floors of the shard with stunning views across London makes it a place to visit if not just for the views

  • Open entrance to the restaurant i was directed to a private room with authentic chinese decor with its own private views

  • I visited in June 2014 and this was an absolutely incredible restaurant

  • The experience was highly enjoyable

  • The seating is traditional wooden chairs from China and the decor inside and presentation of food brings an authentic taste of Asia to your table

  • I would also recommend the Szechuan beef w/ peppercorn as it was delectable and so tasty

  • I would recommend the bar also as the views are so wonderful and a sight see also

  • Hospitality coupled with stunning views of exciting London skyline made our special occasion a truly memorable one

  • Hutong (London Bridge) itself is so beautiful

  • Stands above 300 metres high with 87 floors housing offices

  • The bar was buzzing and filled with trendy Londoners enjoying a warm and dry Friday evening

  • The bar experience was pretty average &ndash

  • It took far too long to get one beer and one glass of bubbly as the bartenders were all too busy spending five minutes preparing each extremely intricate cocktail

  • I was then tasked with a series of important decisions

  • None of my dining companions were in the mood to do any work whatsoever &ndash

  • I was keen to select a crisp and fruit forward white with plenty of acidity

  • I really do think that Verdejo is an extremely unederrated grape &ndash

  • Many would argue that it is Spain&rsquo

  • S finest white grape variety and is certainly behind some of the finest white wines producted in Spain

  • It is great as both an aperitif as well as paired with plenty of flavourful dishes

  • Skipping dessert is a cardinal sin so my friend (I outsourced this decision) chose for the table

  • The service was attentive and the views were the fantastic

  • Why not have the best view in the house

  • On a separate note (this is a wine blog after all &ndash

  • Best one was a dim sum with rosé

  • Spring rolls were tasteless and soft shell crab was

  • There was only one restaurant I was ever going to choose

  • I mean really it's a two in one an amazing table booked on the day through Uncover with stunning views across London

  • We arrived a touch earlier but were invited to take the incredibly swift lift up to the 32nd floor of The Shard which incidentally only takes 12 seconds

  • We began our meal with two glasses of beautifully fruity Champagne and a good nose around the menu

  • The menu at Hutong is quite expensive with a gorgeous fish and shellfish section

  • The dim sum range is also quite wonderful to read through

  • Throughout both menus Hutong has clearly labeled which are their signature dishes and which were specially made for their 1st birthday celebrations

  • Fried noodles with seasonal vegetables

  • Then began to carve said duck at the table for us to enjoy with warmed pancakes

  • Wrapped up in the thin as you like in our rice flour pancakes then topped with finely shredded leek and cucumber and sticky sweet hoisin sauce

  • The dim sum at Hutong is still very enjoyable

  • All the pastries were incredibly thin that you could see through to the delicious filling inside

  • My favourite was definitely the crystal crab meat dumplings as these has a lovely crunchy texture from the internal vegetables and a sweetness in flavour

  • As I mentioned above the Peking duck is served traditionally in two stage

  • The first was our pancakes and second a shredded duck stir fry with red peppers and onion

  • The meat was finished in a sweet and salty sauce and served up with lettuce cups

  • Twice cooked duck is pretty epic let me say so

  • The beef for me was my favourite dish in this section

  • The beef was served with super sweet carrots and shredded celery which gave the dish some freshness

  • My fried noodles with seasonal veggies was quite nice

  • There was another salty sticky sauce on these noodles which was tasty but by this stage I was in need of a little sharpness or lightness in our dishes

  • Alex loved them though as it was a break from the sweeter dishes before

  • Overall my experience at Hutong was simply amazing and I would thoroughly recommend visiting

  • Those of you like me who cannot normally afford the likes of Hutong there is a great "

  • One of the best Chinese fine dining restaurants in London

  • The dim sums and the fried noodles were the best part of the meal for me

  • The desserts were not so great

  • Good ambiance with a great London view

  • 5 chinese meals in Leicester square is what I&rsquo

  • The soft shell crab is my absolute favourite and I would always order it no matter where I go

  • It came in a huge bowl with a lot of dried red chillies

  • We also went for the spring rolls because no Chinese meal is complete without the rolls

  • I still think that better attention and service is required for the price you pay for the meal

  • The crab dish came with very impressive presentation

  • Tasty as well so is another tick

  • Dim sum dishes were better than average though DO NOT order the spicy pork dumpling

  • A 8 pounds dish it was a disappointment in presentation and taste

  • Tables by the window are understandably placed close together to maximise space but come on

  • If you're planning to do fine dining then the experience is also v important

  • Kudos to them for remembering my request of 3 months ago that it was a birthday lunch and bringing out an ice cream with candle at the end

  • I thought it came free but nope it was charged to the bill (would have been nice if it's free lol)

  • I like the wall of lanterns as it leads to the washrooms and you can oversea the other side of the river with the Walkie Talkie building looking right back at you

  • The restaurant features beautiful views of London (on the other side of the restaurant and we were given the view of &lsquo

  • The cuisine is inspired by the dishes you find in Northern China

  • They are primarily focused on using heavy spices and if you are a diner who doesn&rsquo

  • Then there are some options available

  • As an individual who enjoys spicy and hot foods I was happy that there is a heavy influence of Sichuan spices

  • Wine enthusiasts might not be happy with the wine list

  • There is a selection of steamed dim sum for starters which would make great starters to your meal if you are there for dinner

  • S between 12noon to 2.45pm there is a choice of any four savoury dim sum for £

  • Golden Tofu filled with Minced Prawn (Hutong&rsquo

  • We wanted as there is also a dish named &lsquo

  • It was tasty and the hint of spice really made me hungrier than I was at the time

  • The Hot and Sour soup was a little disappointing

  • The prawns tasted nice but I was surprised with fennel seeds in the dish too

  • The restaurant was very warm with very limited air conditioning which usually makes people uncomfortable especially eating Sichuan and spicy foods

  • The Golden Tofu filled with Minced Prawn was delicious

  • The best dish and I was glad this dish was chosen

  • T have imagined that eels could be battered but this was a surprise and I assume the sweetness came from honey

  • Because it was a little sticky but it tasted comforting

  • The dinner tonight was for two but it was enough to fill three people&rsquo

  • The service was pretty much hit and miss

  • The table for two was booked for two

  • Exactly two weeks beforehand as the restaurant is often fully booked unless you prefer having dinner at 10

  • I phoned up a week before the meal requesting for a window seat if possible and whether it was possible to wait by the bar and having a drink if I arrived early

  • The response was that there is &lsquo

  • Window seats and we will be seated wherever there is a table spare by the window

  • It was very fair I suppose but from my experience of booking a table I was always told that it was possible as long as there is a space in time which sounded more friendly than the lady on the phone

  • I was the first person on the seating because the booking system was slow I thought my booking was lost so I booked a table for both 18

  • I was also told that I was not allowed to enter the restaurant for drinks as I will be seated at my reserved time in a very prompt manner and therefore I was requested to wait outside

  • I was disappointed by the telephone manner of the restaurant especially with the Hutong is a part of the Aqua Restaurant Group

  • 30 booking as I was sent text messages by the Hutong to confirm my booking which I believe was pretty handy as I do not fancy speaking to someone every time just to confirm a table

  • 45pm and I was offered to have a drink at the bar before the meal or I could choose to sit at the window seat

  • It was hardly a window seat to be fair but it was better than in the middle of the restaurant and I couldn&rsquo

  • T help but think that the management should be made aware that the service is very hit and miss

  • Our waiter was friendly and attentive

  • T very atmospheric and the service could be improved but it was a success but not worth the hype unfortunately

  • You pay for the food and the view (if you are lucky) but the atmosphere and service wasn&rsquo

  • What you do pay for is the atmosphere

  • Figured now is as good a time as ever

  • My high hopes of the duck were not lived up to

  • Extremely disappointed with the service and the overall experience

  • Rice was not served with the mains but arrived at least 10 15 minutes after

  • Contemporary Northern Chinese with epic views of London city from the 33rd floor of the Shard

  • Second in the evening and this visit was also in the evening

  • Eating amazing food while staring at the breathtaking views of London whilst the sun is setting &ndash

  • Had one Gin (don't be fooled with the prices in the menu

  • Went there with my fiance as a birthday treat

  • Each time we have tried to contact them to take them up on their offer they are strangely silent

  • My favourite was the soft shell crab with sichuan peppers

  • The cocktails are superb specially the Lychee Power

  • The the crispy de boned lamb ribs are greasy so I don't recommend this dish

  • The champagne was great Moet Chardonnay

  • It's food and service offerings were a little lacklustre leaving us less than satisfied

  • The cuisine they serve is northern Chinese and the best thing about this posh place is that the cost for three is only about £

  • The full review is on the blog

  • If you do you be awarded with the panoramic views of the London skylines

  • I decided to treat my cousin who was holidaying in London and the family to some dim sum lunch

  • The view of the restaurant is stunning even in the bathroom you can enjoy an amazing view while you are washing your hands

  • I ordered Dim Sum and was really taste and delicate

  • The dumpling were light and filled really well

  • We ordered as starter some spring roll and was a good idea they were special

  • Nothing that you can compare with the one serve in china town

  • The restaurant is lovely a bit to much dark for me and the service is not a service for 5 star restaurant

  • The dim sums were really nice and the cuttlefish main

  • We had quite a few signature dishes and they were all delicious

  • It is a little expensive and you can get a lot cheaper same standard elsewhere but then again it is the shard and it's probably the best restaurant in it

  • It's on the 33rd Floor of Europe's tallest building is a classy oriental restaurant

  • The Wasabi prawns were Crispy and the Wasabi was Wasabi all the way

  • Do order the minced lamb and fennel seed dimsums these are the best dimsums I've ever had and I have eaten extensively in China

  • This is for the men the urinals in the men's loo are on a glass wall and you experience as if you are showering London

  • Good Chinese food with a great view

  • Shanghai style siao long bao skin of dumpling was very thin with lots of soup inside the dumpling

  • Apple something with sesame seeds (interesting and nice

  • The food took me by a surprise because I thought it was pretty good for a Chinese cuisine place

  • Lauren and I have become such good friends over the past year and we thought it was time to introduce the blogger boyfriends / husbands to each

  • Had booked lunch with my family on the occasion of my mom's visit

  • The experience was average with the exception of the views

  • Most tables are clusters of four and if you are a family of 5 you cannot be accommodated together

  • Our tables were waited on by "

  • Eating out is an experience of all senses and here was a man who clearly didn't like his job

  • Overall the menu selection is below average and food is average

  • Combine this with a poor service

  • One is left with only a view to look forward too

  • We were sat next to a window with a great view of the Thames and St

  • It seems like a party of two is the ideal number because the

  • The food went down well with a fruity Hainan Island cocktail and a few Tsingtao

  • We walked away full but the amount of food is thankfully not over the

  • The service is excellent and the views are spectacular

  • The setting is spectacular

  • The experience is certainly one to remember and will come back to Hutong (London Bridge) for special occasions

  • I had the pekin duck and it was one of the best pekin ducks ive ever tried

  • Staff pays a lot of attention to detail and the place itself is incredibly beautiful

  • The only thing was that the duck came a bit cold and we had to send it back the first time but they promptly brought a new one

  • Since its the holiday season it was a bit crowded so although we had a reservation we had to wait for 20 mins until we got our table

  • Mind you the food is lil on the oily side

  • A good lunch option if you are in that area

  • Service was exemplary with all dishes introduced and outlined as we progressed through their set lunch menu

  • The food was delicious and attention to detail was impeccable

  • The view alone was worth the hefty price tag but since it was for a birthday it was worth it

  • Special mention to the servers that day who were polite and welcoming

  • Amazing food with amazing food

  • A lot of sichuan food is usually too oily for me

  • The dumplings were also great

  • They are very strict with the booking though

  • The view from the restaurant is going to take your breath away

  • So our dining experience was upgraded instantly

  • Our hostess was friendly and knew a lot about the food being served

  • The quantity served for the price is less but then the overall experience makes it worth the visit

  • We had the set menu and all the dishes were exceptional
