We stayed at the Emirates Palace and ate at Hakkasan for my sons birthday. Food was ok, but the service was very confused. Partly my fault as I have a certain food allergy. I was not confident that the staff were knowledgable over the ingredients, so much so the chef and the waiter were giving conflicting information at the table.

A good spot for a smooth evening with friends for laughs and talks. Recommendable warm alcoholic tea at the bar! The appeal and unique food tastes give this place separates it from its competition.

We booked the private dining room for my wife's 40th birthday. There were 16 of us and the room was great. The service was not though. Thirty minutes into the lunch (1230) we were still waiting for the first drinks orders to be taken. The drinks were very slow all day and there was no proactivity in the service. We... More

The appetizers were excellent. One was a duck and mango and the other a duck roll. I highly recommend either. We had the Orange chicken and the beef cheeks as entrees. These were slightly disappointing after a great start to our meal. The orange chicken was almost all breading and the beef cheeks were very fatty. It's not a bad... More

Best Chinese in AD! The duck salad is one of the best I have ever tried. The outside terrace is amazing in the cooler weather.

We visited Hakkasan whilst staying at the Emirates Palace for my 40th birthday. Considering the disappointment that was the Emirates Palace, Hakkasan came as a welcome relief (it's situated within the hotel). Beautiful décor, excellent bar (I write this knowing I'm going tonight after work as we live in the UAE), good staff, great food, decent wine selection. So why... More

I joined friends here for a birthday celebration. The cocktails are terrific and food delicious. I would recommend this restaurant as one of the Top 10 in Abu Dhabi.

We went for dinner to Hakkasan, at the Emirates Palace Hotel. Even before we went there, we were impressed on the way from the splendor of that Hotel. We really liked the interior of the restaurante, all was a bit dark,...a bit too dark...but still very nice and we liked it that way. The service staff brought us to the... More

LOVED the fired Dim Sum platter! We had a couple of cocktails at the bar and then shown to the table. Amazing selection of food without being a very extensive menu. Waiter was very helpful and knowledgeable about the menu. He made an excellent suggestion of ordering different meats around the table so we can share and enjoy different dishes.... More

Located in the impressive and enormous Emirates Palace, this fusion restaurant definitely deserves its stellar reputation. The architectural design is beautiful, with a private feel. In a group of 4 we ordered many starters, which we all fabulous, as we're the mains that followed. Service was very professional and attentive. The dinner was on the expensive side for sure, but...
