I was very excited to discover this restaurant of which I heard so much. Unlike everybody else,I will not report on the food experience as there are already plenty of comments, but on the wine list which is in my opinion as important as the menu. The list is very large and give you the impression that you are ready... More

On 20th Feb was the birthday of my wife. I had heard about this restaurant but never visited. I decided to go there with my wife for her birthday surprise. I was wonderful. Very good food, good services and overall very good atmosphere.

Again out for a business meal with clients, went early to enjoy the bar, and what a bar it was - simply stunning array of drinks and cocktails to enjoy. The food was also top notch and hard to fault - we all enjoyed our meals. Also set in the stunning Emirates Palace Hotel - itself a landmark building in... More

Me and my man wanted to spend just a lovely evening together with some good food and a nice atmosphere. We went without reservation to the Emirates Palace and went to Hakkasan. Good for us, it was not that busy (anymore, it was around 9:30pm) and we got a table. I just really love the style of this restaurant, it's... More

My husband and I went here last night on Valentine's as a special treat to ourselves. We went in knowing that it would be expensive which we were fine with. Almost everything we ordered (Steamed Dim Sum Platter, Crispy Duck Roll, Wok Fried Short Ribs in Seafood Sauce) were wonderful. I would comment though that the Charcoal King Prawns lacked... More

I love Hakkasan in London so this was a must on my visit to Abu Dhabi. Such a great entrance driving into the Emirates Palace - definitely has the wow factor. Lovely table outside with the Etihad Towers as a back drop. Food and service were excellent and my wife was given a red rose as it was Valentines Day... More

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.
