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.

Dim Sum Brunch

Friday brunch is excellent. Had a few drinks at the cool bar then on to our table. The place wasn't very busy but it still felt lively. Started with duck rolls and a few dim sum at the live station. Then wave after wave of creative dim sum was brought to our table, all different and delicious... read more

My mom and I had dinner at Hakkasan on 14 January 2016. Unfortunately we were quite disappointed. The dinner started off OK with a cocktail at the bar. But after that we felt rushed for the rest of the night. I was informed upon booking that the table would need to be available by 9:30PM for a second sitting, which... More

We went with friends for dinner on a Friday night - it was pretty busy, although not full and so had a nice ambience. The food was excellent. Our friends went for the set menu for Chinese New Year, which was TONS of food (they were stuffed!), while we went for starters and mains. I really recommend the soft shell... More

I have been there following a suggestion of a friend and it was great. We really enjoy the food, the atmosphere and the excellent service. It is really an upscale restaurant. The restaurant is inside the Emirate Palace and the welcome is very warm even if you came from outside. I would like to thank in particular Karim who was... More

Worth visiting the Emirates palace and dining at Hakkasan. The atmosphere and ambience is something different. As for the bar down the back a must to see and to order a drink from.

A worthy top ten restaurant in Abu Dhabi. Stunning surrounding's, swift service, great waiting staff and very good food. Just need to reduce your margins a bit on the wine list to make this no 1 in town!

Never had a bad meal here. Amazing bar for cocktails and an amazing choice of spirits. Get there early so you can enjoy the ambience before taking your table

Our first trip to Hakkasan - was very impressed. The restaurant itself is stunning and the bar is amazing. Food was wonderful and would thoroughly recommend with great, unobtrusive service. Food for three, two bottles of wine and water about £350. Will definitely return.

We visited here around a month ago when a family member was over from the USA. Firstly, the venue (Emirates Palace, Abu Dhabi) is incredible, such an amazing property and somewhat unlike anything you may have seen globally.. The restaurant itself, as with a number of Hakkasan's is pretty large and when we went there mid week, it did feel... More
