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 service was okay, the starters were most impressive. Bear in mind, there are two ways to access the restaurant: either through the hotel main lobby which is a bit of a walk. Or, if you follow the signs, you'll reach to the main restaurant entrance which requires you to walk up a flight of stairs.

we eat as a family here and really enjoyed some outstanding food, served as it was made and left in the middle for us all to pick on. The Wagu ribs were the best I have ever had.

I like the ambiance of this restaurant at the Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi. The terrace is wonderful. The food is good, maybe not excellent but a visit at this restaurant is worthwhile. The bar is a must to visit, there Martinis are very good.

By far the best Cantonese restaurant in Abu Dhabi. It's located in the magnificent Emirates Palace Hotel with a great outdoor seating area. It's wise to book a table before going there, as it's often busy. The food is amazing and the service is great.

Seems that everyone raves about Hakkasan and reckons it's the best in Abu Dhabi - probably so considering we do not have that many choices when it comes to Asian cusine. For me, I find that the restaurant and its food is good, but considering the value, I think it might be overrated.

Food was great, especially the duck salad. Service was good, interior outstanding. The only thing I did not like was AC very cold. You can not sit inside with short sleeves. Ask for a table outside if possible.

It was my first time in Abu Dhabi and Hakkasan! Went to the restaurant with a group of friends and keen to experience the good about what's been said of this restaurant. Started at the bar with a Smokey Negroni and I sincerely feel I could have this drink everyday! Moved on to the terrace where the view oversees the... More
