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.

Nice Bar for Drinks

Popped in for drinks at the bar - nice atmosphere. Barman had good knowledge and there was an excellent selection of drinks. Food looked good, wish we had had chance to eat there! Maybe next time!

Great restaurant concept, location in the Emirates Palace gives it a great push and for sure a reason for their pricing structure. The restaurant was full during my visit, i was alone and i have to admit that the service was good, attentive and knowledgeable . I love to taste different things and did try out a few dishes. Al...

I came in a big group of friends for the Dim Sum brunch and never have I before eaten so many types of dim sum at such a high standard. All of them were excellent! The brunch also had a small buffet which had a soup and great duck & pancakes. The service we received was the best I have... More

In keeping with the Hakassan standard, we had an excellent meal here. Everything we ordered was delicious and we also tried a few recommendations which were really good. The service was good, but we felt a little rushed as our food order was taken before our drinks and so we didn’t get a chance to enjoy our drinks before the... More

We have had a couple of special occasion dinners at Hakkasan and it does not disappoint. Special mentions for the bar, great place to relax before dinner and the dim sum is amazing. A lot of thought clearly went into the design and it works. Service is top notch Highly recommended - top marks to the team.

I didn't like my stay at Emirates Palace, the only saving grace was Hakkasan. The food and service was good, the vibe relaxed. It is a great place to have dinner. The menu is a bit pricey, but if you are used to high end restaurants and Hakkasan globally, you will be fine. One of the better restaurants on Abu... More

Loved the food, specially the mixed Dim Sum (steamed). The flavours of each dim sum was magnificent. I love a place if they can make the vegetables taste delicious. I believe that says something about their ability to cook. The vegetable dimsum was so tasty I don't have to tell you about the rest that was on the platter. Each... More

The ambiance was perfect especially I was with my loved one for dinner. The staff were amazingly helpful and courteous which felt genuine and on our part welcomed. The location is also top notch as it's such a top restaurant, it also deserved to be in a very luxurious place, Emirates Palace. I would also like to commend one particular... More

Food is good at Hakkasan, but that's not the reason I would go there. The ambiance is elegant, a bit dark, private and up-scale. The terrace has a nice view at night and if you want to take your sweet hard out for a treat - this is the place. Have a pre- or after dinner drink at the bar.... More
