“Incredible Chinese cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

I had a business dinner at Hakkasan in the Fontainebleau. Started out at the bar with Mojito's which were above average. We were escorted to our table by a lovely hostess. The menu was a little overwhelming so we decided to have the waiter do the ordering. All of us (4) were blown away with his selections. We started out with appetizers that included a crispy duck salad that was the best duck I have ever had. Followed by lettuce wrap, and a dim sum platter which were exceptional. The main course, serverd family style (as were the apps) included Prawn with crispy wheat flake, Black pepper beef tenderloin, Wok fried yellow tail red snapper in king soya, Crispy mala roasted chicken, and Baby pak choi. This was the best meal I had during my stay in Miami beach. Truly a must do stop if your in the mood for over the top Chinese fare....

“One of the greatest Chinese Restaurants there ever was”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

There is Chinese food (one of the world's greatest cuisines I am told) and there is American Chinese food (for which no high claims are made though most of us love it). Hakkasan was an extraordinary surprise. We weren't expecting it. It was one of the best, most memorable dining experiences of our lives. Yes, the place is beautiful ... yes the entry through the lobby of Miami Beach's iconic Fontainbleu Hotel is like being on a cruise ship for a few hours (only at night) ... the Chilean sea bass, an extraordinary fish to begin with is raised higher in there non-traditional coating & preparation ... the meat, the fish ... everything was extra-ordinary. We went back twice. It costs the earth and when you can afford it, it is worth every penny.

“A dining experience that should not be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Hakkasan is a place that I think everyone should dine at least once. This was simply the best Chinese food I have ever had, and even probably one of the best meals I've ever had.

The portions are small, so you can order one thing and for many people have an adequate amount of food. But that's not really the fun in going to Hakkasan. The fun is going with a small group and ordering a bunch of things to share.

The hand pulled noodles are great. The sea bass is delicious and just melts in your mouth. The dim sum is not only delicious but beautifully presented. We also had a spicy prawn dish that was out of this world.

As others have mentioned, this restaurant is not cheap. Cocktails start at $17 each and ordering several of even the least expensive food items will quickly add up. However, if you're staying at the hotel, you may get a coupon book and should look for some coupons for Hakkasan. One I had was for 20% off signature dining, Sun-Thurs from 6pm-7pm. That's a great discount!
