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.

“Simply fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

The selection, quality and value at Hakkasan is brilliant; the restaurant is subtly lit and the tables well spaced but its really all about the food. A little expensive on first look, but once you have tasted the flavours and the quality you realise its about the value not the cost. The service was impeccable, and this is the only Asian restaurant other than Essensia in Prague that would draw either of us back

“Great but a little dark”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

Loved the food and service but it's a little too dark to read the menu! Can't remember what I ordered but everything was really good.
