High up on Level 33 of The Shard, the food at this sexy proposition from the Aqua Group is "nearly as spectacular as the view", according to one fan – although he did add that the whole experience is "eye-wateringly expensive". Relaxed lunches revolve around luxe dim sum (think baked Wagyu beef puffs), while dinner turns the dial to romantic, with dark sultry vibes, "low key" service and a menu inspired by the regional cuisine of Northern China. Recent hits have included full-flavoured lamb and fennel dumplings, crunchy blanched asparagus dressed with white sesame and the signature soft-shell crab served in a giant red lantern filled with Szechuan chilli – although nothing can match the spectacular Peking duck dissected at the table in all its glory and surely worth its hefty chunk of the bill. Flamboyant presentation is the norm, while drinks include thrillingly exotic cocktails and a long list of spice-friendly wines.
How would I describe Hutong? Contemporary Northern Chinese with epic views of London city from the 33rd floor of the Shard. This is my 3rd visit to Hutong. The first was at lunchtime, 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 – can’t think of a nicer way to eat Chinese food!

I made a lunch reservation at Hutong a couple of weeks in advance but at the last minute my friend had to cancel because of work. Luckily, my sister was free and after getting my friends blessing (and disappointment that he couldn’t go), my sister and I rocked up to the 33rd floor of the Shard. We were met by friendly service and of course, amazing views of London. We had first class seats, right by the window looking out onto the river and trains wizzing in and out of London Bridge station. We couldn’t have asked for a better backdrop to our meal. At lunch, Hutong have a dim sum set menu, where you can choose five...

Hutong London, a restaurant located on the 33rd floor of The Shard, is the younger sister of the well-established in The Hutong restaurant in Hong Kong. Diners access the restaurant via a dedicated lift (that also serves Oblix and Aqua Shard) from the base of The Shard.The décor uses similar design from the Hong Kong restaurant, there is a strong use of dark wood which reminds you of a cage. 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...

Hutong, located in The Shard at London Bridge, is an incredible restaurant. Serving food from Northern China, Hutong is locate on the 33rd floor of The Shard and features uncompromised views over the London skyline.With floor-to-ceiling windows (even in the toilets!), this restaurant really does boast the most impressive location. The views are incomparable and I could talk about them all day. There’s absolutely no chance of getting bored in this restaurant, and the only warning I would give is that conversation could be a bit slow - considering most of your attention is caught up with admiring your surroundings.
