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.

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..

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.

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!
