After reading other reviews I was not expecting a great service experience especially on Mother's Day. But I was very pleasantly surprised. Although it was busy, the food and service were excellent. I would highly recommend Hutong and will definitely go back soon.

The back of the restaurant was booked out for a private function which we were attending which was great as it had its own bar section. Service was great. The dumplings were divine with lots of flavour. I filled up quite quickly and decided to skip the mains.

One of the manager ( old and rude Chinese man) put our bill on the table so we did pay with card. He was rudely point the tip amount but I ended up give him nothing. He was snatching his... More

I was at the Prahran market and decided to try Hu Tong for lunch. I was dining on my own. I was sat in a corner away from the other diners. The menu is not designed for solo diners. I asked if I could have a half serve of pan fried dumplings but was told I could not. Why? I... More

Booked by the Cullen Hotel the staff instantly showed us to our table and we had the best Chinese. Water was provided frequently, albeit at $6.00 each to start. Wine list was small and pricy but the food was exceptional

We saw this restaurant in our travel guide and went in without reservation. We had to wait 45 min to get seated, so we went out for a walk. Food was great and service quick! Nice dinner!

This place is great, if you can overlook the always rude staff. Come here frequently for the food, as it's very good. Consistent in both areas: rude staff and awesome food.
