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.

Due to late dining because of fasting, we weren't able to dine. We did try PF Chang's instead, located in Dubai Mall.

This is one of the places to enjoy Asian food. Although the price is within the upscale range but it is worth visiting to celebrate special occasions such as birthdays or a fine romantic dinner. During the good weather it is nice to enjoy the outdoor seating. I do not recommend it during summer. The food is excellent and it... More

Although it was Ranadan and the usual music was missing the menu was amazing and on telling the waitress I was allergic to shellfish she advised me on everything I was able to eat. The food was very high quality and I would thoroughly recommend this place for a special evening, the atmosphere was cosy, dark and intimate.

Went for a birthday during a family visit and this place was definitely the right pick. The service is perfect, the cocktails as good as they come and the food outstanding. All this is a contemporary Asian looking setting with great background music. Really good!

Loved Hakkasan, great Asain fusion type food. We had some amazing appitizers and dinner. Try the Buono appitizer. Great place for celebrations. I have been to this Hakkasan as well as the one in Vegas. Both Amazing! I would recommend reservations.

Hamadan is an Asian restaurant within the beautiful Emirates Palace. You will probably need reservations and dining is intimate in an ornate setting. It will cost you about US$ 60 each including drink but the sky is the limit here - Bird's Nest Soup is available, for example. You can ask for a table outside if you prefer. Service was... More

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.
