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.

The was a bar visit and not a dinner. The bar scene was slow and not too crowded but the setting and the music were perfect. The service was super professional and friendly enough; the barman knew what he was doing and he also knew the ingredients in all the small snacks available. He also allowed for a minor exception...

This was a treat for my birthday so a very special evening anyway. The restaurant decor was a bit nightclubish but very tastefully done. The food was exquisite. The butterfly prawns were absolute bliss. Service was impeccable - courteous, prompt and efficient. The price was acceptable for such an excellent meal.

The Hakkasan never fails to impress! The outside terrace is quite stunning in the evening with wonderful views of Corniche, Abu Dhabi. The Bar is a must to have a pre dinner drink as they serve the best olives we have ever tasted. These olives are not for sale anywhere and are especially brought in from Italy for their Restaurant.... More

Set within the Emirates Palace if that isn't enough to blow you away the food at Hakkasan will. The flavours are truly amazing, sea bass wow! Excellent friendly service with a warm welcome. Try a Hakkatini in the bar before hand, a truly great night.

Hakkasan is one of those restaurant that serious foodie must visit at least once, to find out what all the fuss is about. It is beautifully appointed, has amazing food, particularly Cantonese fares, including their dim sum. Service is also exceptionally good and the overall restaurant ambience always make you think everyone is having an exciting time there. Absolutely recommended.

Great business dinner at Hakkasan. Creative menu, excellent service and good ambience. The only critique I would have is the temperature of the food, it is unfortunate that the food was not hot as it should be. Other than that, great experience again and highly recommended

Tasty morsels traditionally presented in woven bamboo baskets - unfortunately the vegetarian options aren't as tasty as the seafood dumplings... As expected. Looking forward to attending their yum cha brunch held every Friday, 12-4 PM. Other highlights - Duck Salad and pictured - Lemon Pot dessert. 4NOMS.

With the ambience typical for this restaurant you are not disappointed. We started with a drink at the bar and then were escorted to our table. The Sommelier was very helpful and suggested a wine I would not normally have chosen - and he was spot on. The food was served hot and in a timely fashion. The food was... More

ok so I scanned 97 reviews, if you complained about quick service go to McDonald's . If you complained about slow service go to Wendy's , if you complained that the restaurant light was toooo low try Starbucks. However if you want really good food, lovely ambiance your in luck. If you complain about the price go to Arby's .... More
