Hutong is renowned for its delicious spread of Northern Chinese cuisine. The restaurant’s famous dim sum platter for lunch and dinner is a treat you simply can’t miss.

Calling all the meat lovers out there! Come check out The Grill Room, a modern steakhouse featuring French and Australian cuisine (how’s that for a pairing?). 

Expect fine cuts of meat prepared using secret homemade marinade and sauce before char-grilled over searing flames. We liked the USDA Prime Charcoal-grilled Sirloin and Roast Half Lamb Rack.  

Anyway, if you want to make the most of your dining experience, we suggest you sit at the section with high tables so you get the best view of the restaurant’s open kitchen.

But before we jump to all that booze in Aqua Bar, let’s look into their food offerings first. The restaurant features two kitchens – Aqua Roma and Aqua Tokyo. Of course, it’s quite obvious which kitchen the Italian and Japanese dishes come from, right? 

If it’s your first time dining here, we recommend you  go for their tasting menu. This menu is just perfect for you to try a range of seasonal dishes as well as both Japanese and Italian specialties. 

Anyway, to secure a window seat and get an unobstructed view of Victoria Harbour, you have to book a reservation at least a week before your visit. There’s only a few window seats here.

Next is the dining area opposite the open kitchen, which is a good choice if you enjoy watching the buzz in the kitchen as your meals are prepared.
