Food was good and plentiful. Restaurant was very loud and rushed - definitely not the place for a relaxed evening. Service was good but staff were very distracted as they were clearly overworked.
The food and cocktails were outstanding, I cannot wait to return.

Chinese food doesn’t get a whole lot better than what’s being served up at HuTong 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.
