This Michelin-starred Chinese restaurant designed by Christian Liaigre has recreated the luxurious glamour of the past by combining Chinese history, tradition and architecture. Wooden lattice screens carved out of dark English oak invite discerning guests for a unique dining experience with contemporary cuisine from Chef Tong Chee Hwee. The menu has a strong Chinese ethnic identity with an ethos of Cantonese cooking that will be informed by a progressive approach, underpinned by authenticity rather than traditionalism. The bar offers an innovative range of Asian-inspired cocktails that can be enjoyed Thursday to Saturday night at Ling Ling, the late lounge. The Taste of Hakkasan, designed for two to seven people, is available seven days a week during lunch and Sunday-Wednesday for pre or post-theatre dining.

This was second time here and from being received at reception all the way through the service is first class. We sat at the bar as we purposefully arrived a little early to have a cocktail.

A romantic getaway to London with my girlfriend. We wanted to try Hakkasan, but we were disappointed. The waitor could not make two of the courses from the menu without meat (girlfriend is pescetarian). The food was good, but not for 250 pounds. We got a menu each, two cocktails each. After 1,5 hours they told us, that we could... More

The taxi driver said "don't be alarmed Im going to drop you off in the alleyway and its the door in the Corner" , not the usual information preceding a visit to a Michelin starred restaurant however our minds were put at ease by the friendly doormen, the entrance to the restaurant is very nice and once inside its like...

Knowing the Abu Dhabi Hakkasan well and loving it I thought that a return visit to HK London is a must during my short trip. Since for all of my evenings the restaurant was fully booked I opted for a table at 5pm (would not do this for any other restaurant). Our mind was set on the a la carte... More

A blend of east & west, the staff meets you at the entrance to greet you, you walk down a few flight of stairs and hand in your jacket to the attendant. The decor is simply beautifully with modern fixtures. This restaurant has been going for years, so they do know a thing or two about running a large restaurant.... More

This place just oozes class. From the moment you walk in and are greeted, well trained employees point you in the right direction....it would be good if they smiled?? Almost robotic looks, or was it 'I'm bored' look? Anyways, they were very efficient. We went to the bar first....NICE, impressive. A big long bar with everything you can think of.... More

We had dinner here at this very stylishly decorated venue and chose the menu option. I have to say that the portions were quite large so we definitely didn't leave the table hungry. The setting does give you the impression you are dining at a delicate, more refined style restaurant but I believe the food, as delicious as it was,... More

I visited Hakkasan Hanway last year for my birthday and it was the biggest mistake of my trip. We had a table booked for 2130 but fancied a drink so phoned ahead to check it would be okay to turn up early. When we arrived we were told abruptly 'well your early, you'll have to wait in the bar and... More

I like the ambience and service at Hakkasan but the food just did not live up to standards this time. The dim sum and vegetarian starters are absolutely lovely but I wasn't impressed with the mains. We also felt a little rushed, which is of course quite frustrating considering the amount you pay! They should extend table allocation times to... More
