Let me start by saying I love Hakkasan in London and Mumbai - have been there several times for their wonderful food and cocktails, and in those locales it is a joy to spend an evening, albeit not cheap its perfect for special occasions. So having moved to AD recently I thought I'd visit home so as to speak (in... More

Been here few times for a drink with friends but haven't tried their food. We thought it would be superb as it is not cheap. We spent almost 1,400dhs for 4 mains, 2 appetizers, 2 rice, 4 glasses of red wine, and 4 Asian beers. Food was ordinary and rice that size should be a complimentary. Rice is ridiculously small!...

We were given a gift of a meal and drinks here when in Abu Dhabi. First the bar staff were great, very helpful and friendly, then the waiting staff maintained the standard. We eat out on the terrace, very comfortable although be warned they seem to mix smokers up among everybody. We thought it was a Japanese restaurant but actually... More

I expected something beyond the usual since there had been so much hype around this restaurant. The staff was very friendly and the starters was really good, the main course was ok but nothing special. We had an overall pleasant evening but I did not get that wow experience that I expected.

Went here for drinks with some expat friends, good atmosphere, music pumping and a nice crowd to mingle around with. Obviously its located in a killer setting, the only let down was the rude bouncer/door man that for some reason figured he is more important then the guests, A little welcome with a smile wouldn't kill you.

After all the hype we decided to give it a go. Went with my husband and parents tonight. Food was ok, rice was stone cold, for the price I would expect perfection and hot! The place is so dark it's ridiculous, you have to be directed to the toilets, once inside trying to find the right door is a mission... More

Whilst visiting Abu Dhabi on golfing holiday I booked a special family evening meal at the Hakkasan. We had a wonderful evening, great food, excellent service and a stunning location. If possible book an outdoor table as the view of the Etihad Towers really adds to the whole experience. The whole meal was rather pricey, but no more than I... More

This is a wonderful restaurant in an amazing hotel. The food was superb and the service outstanding. Prices are very reasonable for the type of restaurant it is and its location. I strongly recommend it.

Amazing Chinese food with a nouveau twist. Personally I prefer the outside dining when weather permits as the views are good. The decor was my least favourite thing about this restaurant as it is dark and quite noisey with a prominent bar. Service was very attentive and the bill reflects the standard of venue, food and service.
