Dark timber divides carved in Chinese motifs, pale jade-green leather upholstered seats, low pendant lights above tables, dim ceiling spotlights setting the mood. Such is the understated class of über-cool Hakkasan. You’ll feel like you’ve ventured into the super-trendy lair of some Hong Kong mafia don. The mammoth menu is varied, boasting some intriguing dishes. What’s more, they even have separate menus for those with food allergies. The soups are a genuine treat, all delightfully fresh and wholesome, while the steamed seafood, chicken and vegetable dim sum are tender parcels of flavour that melt in the mouth. The crispy duck skin also deserves a special mention, releasing delicious juices with every bite. Portions are large at Hakkasan, so ensure you don’t over order – sides, for instance, are almost too much if you’re already ordering starters and mains. All in all, it’s fantastic food, just beware the bill.
