I thought that the ambience & service was first rate. The quality of the ingredients was high. As someone who has lived in China, Hong Kong & SE Asia for many years, I thought that the food was only reasonable not exceptional..

I'm so glad I found this place, finally a place in Emirates Palace where you get a great package for your money!

Service: Very attentive, friendly, quick and knowledgeable about the food and the preparation. The sommelier is helpful in selecting fitting wines.
Location: Great view, the balcony terrace is facing the Etihad towers.
Music: Loungy music, inside a little bit too loud for my taste.
Food, wine and cocktails: Excellent!

I will come again and will recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Price for a dinner for two persons:
2 main dishes
3 sides
2 desserts
4 glasses of wine
1 cocktail
1 porter wine
1 big bottle of water
Price about 1100 AED including service fees and tourist tax.

I just have been to restaurant once. I usually dont like chinese food that much for some bad expirence I had in some bad restaurant. But this restaurant made a change. I liked this restaurant. every thing was good but I think its little bit pricy! I would recomend this restaurant for nice event or inviting people.


PS: its very nice for inviting many people or family or co-workers.

This was our first time visiting Hakkasan and we were thoroughly impressed with the whole dining experience. The stylish bar is very well stocked, the decor and atmosphere is top notch. The service we received was friendly and attentive with the food being some of the best we have tasted.

The two of us ordered;
Duck with mango along with the Hakka dim sum platter for starters
For the main course we had Scallops wrapped in prawns and then the Smoked wagyu beef.

The food was fresh, vibrant and surprisingly plentiful.
The menu had so much more we really wanted to try but will have to leave for our next visit.

The cocktail menu is also worthy of note with the Hakka and Chinese Mule being amongst our favourites.

I cannot recommend this restaurant enough, fantastic!
