Chinese food doesn’t get a whole lot better than what’s being served up at Hu Tong Dumpling Bar, and you’ll be happy to know that the menu is huge. Although dumplings are the obvious draw card here, you’ll also get to choose from other Chinese specialities including roast Peking duck, king prawns in Szechuan sauce, salt and pepper squid, pan-fried cod fish with soy sauce and Mongolian lamb fillet. The main courses are a little pricier than the dumplings, but they’re well worth it. Go for a banquet if you want to get the most out of your experience, and be sure to finish up with dessert if you manage to save room – try the pumpkin cake with ice cream for a unique sweet treat that won’t let you down.
Food was excellent, and service also. The only downside was that the restaurant was noisy, largely due to a group of 6 at the next table. I wouldn’t however let that put me off, and would go back again.
Brilliant dumplings - especially the wontons in chilli oil. Great service too.
It was our first time and everything was according to our expectations. Very nice xiao long bao, peking duck. Good pro-active service. Looking forward to go back.
