We went at 6.30pm on a Sunday. It was packed. The service was on the slow side as a result. Our chilli soft shell crab was soggy with oil and the chilli appeared to have been forgotten. Other dishes were OK but nothing special. I've had better at decent Chinese restaurants in Chinatown in terms of flavour and there are... More

Very good food (we had an incredible waitress that made some great recommendations), good service but VERY slow, music too loud and spotlights make it difficult to speak to those across the table. This place is an institution though so will always be full.

Went here on Wednesday night to celebrate my boyfriends birthday. It really was a perfect night and he was very pleased with the restaurant choice. The cocktails were strong & delicious and the service was amazing. Dessert was bought out with a Happy birthday written on the plate in chocolate with a candle. Highly recommended!

Happy with the service too. Disliked the 'collar' policy (although was unaffected by it) and disappointing that the tea smoked chicken had sold out by 7.30 on a Thursday but the food, especially the starters was amazingly good. Particularly pleasantly surprised by the decent portions. I'll be back for the next special occasion that I can use to justify the... More

Sitting in our hotel, we decided to go out for a late long lunch, so opened to Open Table app to see what was around. Hakkasan was only 5 mins away, and having heard very good things about it, we booked a table. Upon entering the restaurant, all was good. Coats taken, seated with a smile, menus and asked if...

Still a little sniffy here. I really don't like people looking at my shoes before thay let me in to spend my cash. Good if relatively expensive cocktails. Not a place to come if you want to sink a few beers. I am told that the Chinese style food is good. I am not an afficionado. The grub looked tasty,... More

Food was very good, especially the peking duck was cooked to perfection. The dish I liked least was the abalone salad, the salad was just full of onions. Prices were high as expected and the atmosphere was slightly noisy. Staff were extremely friendly.

We enjoyed lunch here for our anniversary. The dim sum is superb, and the steak main dish was melt-in-the-mouth delicious. Great service and a real experience

Visited a couple of weeks ago on a Saturday night with my boyfriend. We were looking for an impressive venue for dinner and Hakkasan really delivered. The food was absolutely delicious and the drinks were amazing too. The restaurant itself is quite dark and moody - very cool, trendy. It's also quite cold! When I took my jacket off I... More
