    Very loud but great music. The exact environment we were looking for. The food was absolutely amazing. This place is one of my favorite restaurants around the world. Can’t say enough good things about it.

    We opted for the ala carte menu which was fantastic. We got more of what we wanted and less of what we didn't want.

    A window table was arranged upon early request during the booking process. The dinner was a celebration for my graduation ceremony. Food and services were great. Especially the iconic flaming peking duck. properly roast, crispy skin and great flavor. The sour soup with fish fillet was also a good pick. Again, great flavor and the sourness just opened up your stomach. The staffs were also very sensitive on the capacity remaining in the tea pot, and provided refill constantly. However one criticism I would make, would be for the design of the toilets. Its too much alike of an Asian Halloween setup. Red doors , red paint tiles with a bit of wood sculptures . Not very comfortable for users. :/ Overall, for the food , venue and value. I would definitely recommended this place! Just watch out going to toilets haha

    Very pleased that they actually read the note to my booking, didn’t think they would remember that it’s a birthday! :) It was overall an excellent experience. However, the sun was shining too bright. Just from the very top. The rest of the glasses should never be covered, amazing view!!

    Great food and drinks (especially the sake, it was so smooth), ambience was perfect, service was outstanding, one great point was the view of the 270 degree Victoria Harbour. It would be better if there was 變臉 performance! Would re-visit Hutong once again when the 變臉 performance is available again!

    If only the food was as good as the view. We were extremely disappointed by every dish. We will never go back, and given how empty the restaurant was it seems others may also have come to the same conclusion.

    Easy access location with great view of the harbour. The food is great if you like spicy stuff but there are also good stuff for kids. The bathroom is worth mentioning if you like antique feel. This is particular interesting to have the Master doing Chinese calligraphy drawing for your name. Not our first time here and surely we will come again.

    Went for weekday lunch set, was not crowded and we git a lovely seat by the window. Luckily we got clear skies and the harbour views were fantastic. The food was delicious too. Decent variety and reasonably priced at 228+. Will go again...
