Hutong is situated on Level 33 of The Shard and introduces the fascinating and diverse flavours of Sichuan cuisine to London. According to tradition, there are four schools from which all Chinese cuisine originated. Hutong takes its inspiration from the Lu School (鲁菜) cuisine of China’s Shandong Province, renowned for its seafood. This School was served in the Imperial palaces in Peking, adopting flavours from nearby Sichuan province famed for its fiery peppers and spices. Experience dramatic dishes including Red Lantern crispy soft shell crab with Sichuan dried chilli and Hutong’s signature Roasted Peking duck.
Founder David Yeo carefully designed the sumptuous interior with traditional Chinese red lanterns, hand-carved wooden ‘moon gates’ and a wall of tea-bricks, set against the breathtaking views of the Capital’s skyline. Inspired by the hutongs – or alleyways – of Peking (old Beijing), with ornate doors hewn from dark oak, hand-carved wooden screens and traditional Chinese red lanterns. David Yeo created a spectacular counterpoint with the modernity of The Shard and the panoramic views of London’s skyline and the River Thames
