Booked the Dim Sum lunch as an early birthday treat for my daughter. I had seen some negative reviews regarding service, but our experience was fantastic. Service was prompt, efficient and friendly. The Dim Sum were superb and definitely filling (even my daughter chose green tea over dessert as we were so full). My request for a window table on arrival was granted easily, and we had a wonderful view. For my daughter, especially, it was a memorable occasion. I will definitely come again, and will certainly go for the signature soft shell chilli crab that I saw on another table (I've had it at Hutong in Hong Kong, and it is superb). If I had a criticism, it would be that ordering wine by the glass, the servings seemed relatively small. But that's being picky.

Excellent ambiance and great views. Food is tasty but you're mostly paying for the atmosphere (you'll get the same sort of yumminess for much less at plenty of other restaurants not high in the sky). My only complaint is that we were a bit rushed. Our booking was for 2:30, and we were told that the kitchen would be closing at 3pm, which meant we had to order quickly, and couldn't order more later. (It isn't unusual when you're eating dim sum to try a few things, see how hungry you still are, and order some more.) Staff was friendly and welcoming.

had a great evening brought some friends from abroad and we ordered the duck which was perfectly executed. The ambience was great and we had Mandy who served us and she was great and attuned to our needs

Restuarant has superb views and truly an experience to be up there. Went for dim sum lunch, rather disappointed as this high end restaurant is really competing with hakkasan and yautacha yet the dim sun quality falls well below their standards. The prices involved means this is pricier dim sum and some of the dishes do not justify the prices (chicken Siu Mai for example looked as if they came out frozen packet!). However, you go there for the ambience and view and for that I cannot fault it, just expect quality of food to not match the views...

We had a really nice lunch at Hutong, but I can't help but feel that you're paying for their extortionate rent rather than the service or quality of food. The dim sum was good, but no better than you'd have at the likes of Ping Pong. Service was hit and miss - some waiters really explained what we were eating but others didn't seem to have a clue. The view was great though so definitely worth a visit for that alone!
