Hakkasan Hanway Place is the original Hakkasan restaurant. This Michelin-starred Chinese restaurant designed by Christian Liaigre, has re-created the luxurious glamour of the past by combining Chinese history, tradition and architecture. Wooden lattice screens carved out of dark English oak invite discerning guests for a unique dining experience with contemporary cuisine from Chef Tong Chee Hwee. The menu has a strong Chinese ethnic identity with an ethos of Cantonese cooking that will be informed by a progressive approach, underpinned by authenticity rather than traditionalism. The bar has created an innovative range of Asian inspired cocktails that can be enjoyed Thursday to Saturday night at Ling Ling, the late lounge. The Taste of Hakkasan, designed for 2 to 7 people is available 7 days a week during lunch and Sunday-Wednesday for pre or post-theatre dining. Hakkasan Hanway Place have recently launched 'Dim Sum Sundays': a weekly lunch event hosted by resident lounge DJs, available every Sunday from 12:00 until 17:45.

Good food but quite rushed

I found a brilliant set menu deal online so jumped at the chance of a more affordable trip to Hakkasan. The deal ended at 6.30 when my booking was so I was told to arrive early in order to still benefit from it. My friend and I both arrived by 6.10 but were not seated until 6.35 and then the... read more

Went with 4 friends as a birthday celebration. Food was gorgeous - tried several dishes - chicken beef fish. All gorgeous! The service was attentive but not intrusive. Waitress was considerate and knowledgeable. Music was pretty loud so conversation wasn't easy but didn't detract for me. Fantastic evening!

My gf took me here on a birthday meal on Saturday evening and we ordered the vegetarian tasting menus with a bottle of wine. Firstly the food was average and definitely not in keeping with what was expected. The starters were bland - the spring rolls were served without any sauce, and the waiters were surprised I asked for sauce.... More

Went here a couple of days ago. The taxi pulled into this little lane which looked suspicious but it lead to this tucked away gem. We were treated promptly, asked for our coats and seated in this amazing low light, sexy dining adventure. The food was incredible. Service fantastic. We needed a taxi for the way home and they had... More

We both had the signature menu with cocktails and champagne. Food was lovely as were the drinks. The tables are close together but the lighting makes you feel as though it is a lot more private. The only downside we found was that many different people were serving us, which meant that one of the courses didn't come out. When... More

Noisy, over crowded, tight tables, smarmy staff and not a pleasant experience. The food definitely comes second to their attempt to make a nightclub environment a restaurant! Turn the music up and remove the tables and you have a better use of the space. The cooking was all very good Chinese fare, apart from the complete lack of value. The... More

The food was every bit as good as I'd hoped it would be, and likely to visit again and again. As most of my London restaurant visits are in locations reasonably close to either business or home, Hakkasan is a place I've meant to visit for years, but as it's not near office, and not near home, and seemed too...

Visited last minute for lunch. They were extremely accommodating. The place looks really unassuming from the outside, yet inside is wonderful. A really dimly lit dark cozy restaurant. The staff are great. Knowledgeable and educated. The sommelier specifically. We had the lunch taster menu. The waiter kindly advised us that depending on how hungry we were, we could add some...

The food was exquisite, the service impeccable, the atmosphere fantastic. This is Chinese food to a new level and none of that gloopy stuff. We had the lowest priced Signature menu which included things I would not normally eat, not being a seafood lover. However the Dim Sum was outrageously good, even the scallop, which I do not normally touch.... More
