Description: Hakkasan Abu Dhabi opened in June 2010, bringing Hakkasan's award-winning cuisine to the landmark Emirates Palace. Comprising a restaurant, bar and lounge as well as four private dining rooms, the 16,000 sq ft space is separated by carved wooden screens and latticing that echo the rich interiors of the London flagship restaurant. Long-time design partner Gilles & Boissier designed the space with the Hakkasan ethos of the modern ethnic, interpreting it for the United Arab Emirates. Embroidered furniture and marbled Chinese forms enrich the space, and the main dining area is crafted into a wooden cage surrounded by backlit blue glass and a stainless steel frame. Signature Hakkasan dishes like Peking Duck with Caviar and Grilled Wagyu Beef with King Soy Sauce are served alongside a set of new dishes created especially for an Emirate clientele. The restaurant is headed by chef Lee Kok Hua, who was previously at Hakkasan Hanway Place where he worked under Head Chef Tong Chee Hwee for five years.

I have been 2-3 times at the restaurant and it was love at first sight! First time we chose to stay at the lovely terrasse opening a great view over the city. The other time we were inside and we enjoyed as much as outside. In late autumn and winter terrasse should be your choice! The food is simply amazing,... More

Went here with high expectations and was extremely disappointed with sub par service and even worse food! Certainly a case of emperors new clothes with this one, gloopy and greasy Chinese dishes that could have been from a cheap take away. We left most of the food and were not even asked if there had been a problem with it,... More

An evening sitting, almost outdoors, looking over The Emirates Palace at the Abu Dhabi Sky Line is almost surreal. The food was superb, the flavours tantalising. The cost, whilst not negligible. was value for money

Maybe I had too high expectations due to the reviews I saw, but I got a bit disappointed after having dinner there. Let's talk about the pros: - Location is great - Excellent selection of Wines - Creative food and some dishes are really superb - They have a gluten free menu Then what was wrong? Well, the soup I...

Great food and service. Restaurant was dry because of eid, which wasn't a problem, but think it was quieter than normal and no music. So will have to go back to sample the amazing looking cocktails

I simply loved the ambiance and the great hospitality offered . Our server was extremely well trained and gave us a full view of the menu offer. I totally agree that this is one of the best Chinese restaurant in Abu Dhabi and I will go there again very soon.

First time I tried Hakkasan I was really disappointed. The food was under seasoned and I was sure they had put MSG in the rice, which is a huge no no for me. You can expect that from your corner Chinese place, not from an establishment like Hakassan. I've been back twice since my first bad experience, and the food... More

Sit and be served in the lounge (minimum table charge applies) or just relax at the bar and eat however many portions of bite size nibbles you need, what ever takes your fancy, experience it with good friends for memorable social evenings. If you have a run on a particular favourite liquor then the question may come...... "would you like... More
