Visited last night - and had an incredible meal - we visited at the beginning of the year and had a great meal, but if anything, this was even better. Fantastic dim sum - particularly the spicy lamb and the mushroom ones, great duck, amazing crab on chicory leaf. We also loved the lamb, the bresse chicken soup and the wagyu beef and truffles (husband did, I don't like truffle). Service was really warm and friendly - dim sum whilst we waited for our dining companions was a nice touch. We're really looking forward to trying other restaurants in the Hakkasan group - we've been to the original Hanway Place premises a few times (great - although not quite up to HKK levels) and are planning on trying Yauatcha......

was taken here as a birthday surprise and despite being alittle lost due to poor signage, what was awaiting inside was just excellent. We were warmly recieved and attended too straight away without any air of arrogance as you can sometimes come to expect this restaurant category. Love the interior, design and fell although alittle cold. The food and cocktail matching was simply sublime and delicious. the food is just so delicate and refined in the execution and delivery, all stunningly displayed. It has to be one of my most memorable meal being more special because it is modern asian cooked so well. Congrates to everyone at HKK, and thank you.

I recently visited with a very important new client and all I can say is, I want more. Not the easiest of places to find and it is set in an understated street, but once you are inside you will not be disappointed.

Service was very good, with welcoming staff. Had the full tasting menu with non-alcohol drinks pairing. Overall we enjoyed our food and drink. But being of chinese origin, I probably won't order the tasting menu again. However, I would definitely go back. Definitely the best peking duck in the UK. More than enough things I would like to have to go back many more times from the a la carte menu!

Had a Saturday night 15 courses tasting menu with my wife and 2 other couples. The cocktail was fantastic. The food was excellent and the service was terrific. We all feel very full midway through the dinner but it was so delicious you just can keep eating it. After the dinner we visit the kitchen and also received the menu with the stamp of HKK which is quite special. Our friends love the food and restaurant, even my wife and myself are Chinese we cannot agree more that this is the best Chinese food we have had in London.
