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.

Came to Abu Dhabi for the F1 and was recommended Hakksasan at Emirates Palace. The hotel is amazing and the restaurant the same. Duck Salad and the steamed Dim Sum delicious. The atmosphere was equally good and the evening was the continuation of a great weekend in Abu Dhabi.

Dimsum in chines means touch of heart and Hakkasan touches heart every sunday with their dimsum brunch which is mouth watering . also their chinese menu for dinner is exclusive and so is their hospitality .it is a michelin star restaurant . but at times we have an opinion that most restaurants can only have variety of non vegetarian food...

Simply some of the best Chinese food I've ever eaten, with exquisite taste and presentation. Everything was excellent, from the duck salad, fantastic prawns, beautiful lamb and dim sum delicate little parcels. I've never eaten better Chinese food, including in HK or China, although Hakkasan in London is as good. However, Hakkasan in AD scores higher on location. We sat... More

I visit the restaurant every time I am in Abu Dhabi and as usual the evening was outstanding. From the drinks and food to the service. This is a beautiful restaurant with great atmosphere and overall brilliant concept. I shall continue to come back!

When I first went to Hakkasan a couple of years ago, everything about the restaurant was worthy of the reputation and reviews it had. Since then I have attended this restaurant many times and have seen a gradual slip of the standards to the visit yesterday evening which at times was that far below that expected of a Michelin rated...

Find me a better restaurant in AD and you've found a liar. This restaurant is quite simply flawless. I've eaten in many similar restaurants around the world (Sushi Samba London), Amante Beach Ibiza, etc) and in terms of the quality of the food this is right up there at the top. The menu is fantastic, so much so that you'll... More

We were here for a dinner without a reservation on a Saturday night but were seated at our table very promptly. The restaurant is located at the Emirates Palace hotel. It can be accessed through the hotel and has a separate entrance of its own too. The service was very Hakkasan like- efficient, well trained, non-intrusive. We didn't get to... More

Hakkasan is a great venue. It's seductive and hip. It's also in former palace, which is absolutely worth walking through. I went with business associates for a dinner following a conference. I thought the service was preoccupied. The restaurant was not busy, yet it took FOREVER to get water, then our wine, and our server rarely checked on us to... More
