HuTong Close to a very busy and famous shopping street, on the ground floor of a newly-build five-star hotel, with the high-quality fit-out, the sister restaurant of Hutong Dumpling Bar in the city was open in December 2009. Since “Hutong” is growing as a famous restaurant brand, the Hutong Prahran was focused by a public long time before its official opening. Retaining the popular dishes of city shop, such as Xiao-Long-Bao, spicy Winton and Pan-fried Dumpling, Hutong Prahran also presents customers Peking Roast Duck and some other authentic Chinese cuisines.

“Hello, winter and steamed dumplings. Visited the nearly-hidden restaurant in Chinatown. Place was quiet. Ordered their favourite dish – chilli dumplings, spinach, and minced pork with bean curd. They were good – the dumplings are quite juicy and soft in texture. Maybe next time we will order the favourite noodles as pictured at the restaurant.”- Theo Tedjasasmita
Oriental Teahouse Inspired by the bustling teahouses that dot Nanjing Road, one of Shanghai’s busiest streets, Oriental Teahouse is designed to be at the heart of social gatherings of all kinds. They believe a great teahouse means more than just tea– it’s where you can bring your friends, your family, or your colleagues. It’s a centre for interaction and relationships, where ‘life’ happens, and where life is enjoyed.
