My friend and I saw "Hutong" on Trip Advisor and both decided it was worth a visit
after seeing what a killer view it had:
There's also a few items you could order as an add-on if you are super hungry. The Shrimp and Pork Belly entrees we picked was so delicious! Even though I am a small eater, I am pretty sure I got my money's worth on the Champagne alone. Service was super attentive and the view is just spectacular despite not having a window table. Though in a way it worked out great because we were seated almost right next to the performers.
Originally, we had planned to visit at night time when the Hong Kong light show starts at 8pm so we could eat and watch. But unfortunately, the restaurant was closed for a private function the night we could go. So we took the next best option and made a reservation for their Sunday Brunch instead.
We were very surprised once we arrived. The manager on duty was super nice -- very flirty to my friend but at least it seemed like he was that way to all of the other female patrons.
Hutong was one of the most memorable experiences in Hong Kong. We planned it as a leeway into our Beijing Trip the week after (where we actually stayed in a "Hutong" or alleyway). With the traditional Chinese furniture and music, it makes you really feel like you are truly in China.
We chose the buffet with unlimited Champagne option for $598 HKD + 10% service charge (~$86 USD). If you opt out of the beverage options, the buffet is actually $398 HKD + service charge (~$58 USD ). The Champagne package also includes unlimited wines and cocktails but I was happy with bottomless Veuve Clicquot Brut which they kept refiling like a ninja.
Why do I recommend Hutong?
- Wonderful service and very friendly staff (table side + their willingness to help you take group pictures with their performers). I find the service a departure from most of HK (where they are super cold and could care less).
will run you more than the cost of the lunch buffet alone.
But if dinner is more to your liking, here is their menu. Though keep in mind there is a per person minimum
charge of $400 HKD ($52 USD). Please check with restaurant for current pricing.
Have a look at the full Feng Wei Brunch menu. The Hutong buffet is open from Noon- 3 pm, every Sunday.
