Expert review of Hutong

If you're looking for a classic Chinese, but not Cantonese, restaurant - this is it!

I once ate dinner here with a party of out-of-towners, who were in raptures over the ultra Chinese interiors, blown away by the view, and blown even further away by the food. And, despite having lived here a good while, I have to admit I was pretty impressed on all three counts as well.

Food and drink: 

It serves northern Chinese cuisine - so expect Beijing and Shanghai, as well as some Sichuan and Hunan. If you don't fancy Old or New World wines, there's a fiery selection of sake and Chinese rice wine.

Recommended dishes: 

The Peking duck is a winner.

Ambience: 

It has retro Chinese furniture (bird cages, lanterns, richshaw) and decor, plus they turn the lights down in the evening to better appreciate the fun and games below.

Service: 

The staff are dapperly attired, and very helpful if you are a tad unsure of the ins and outs of Chinese cuisine.

Location: 

It's in one of Tsim Sha Tsui's most distinctive skyscrapers (it's curved like a sail), and at the top to take in commanding views of both metropolitan and marine goings-on.

Price advice: 

Reckon on HK$400 per head, eating well if not extensively.
