“Gets Better”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Another fantastic meal at what is clearly one of the outstanding restaurants in Doha. Quality of food and service remains first class , special mention to Ravi and his team, looking forward to the wine tastings. It is always difficult to move away from the Duck, which is well established as the signatory dish.
The staff are both friendly and knowledgable about the dishes on offer and I can only say keep up the high standards. Food and service in Doha does not get any better than this.

Dear Julduf777

Thank you very much for your kind review.
I am glad to see that you appreciate our selection of specially imported spirits from around the world, and urge you to visit us shortly after Ramadan as we should be having a large shipment with some interesting products coming in then.

I hope to see you back at Hakkasan Doha soon

“Atrocious service - waited one hour 15 mins for entrees”
Reviewed May 23, 2014 via mobile

My colleagues and I are regulars at Hakkasan. Two nights back we had to wait an hour and 15 mins for our entrees which is unacceptable - half our table had to leave as they couldn't wait. We asked to see the manager Joel, who wasn't apologetic at all and who said 'I didn't know you were in a hurry'. Seriously? Ridiculous.

This was hugely disappointing for us as we otherwise love the food at Hakkasan. Please improve your service and train your manager in better customer service.

“Outstanding!”
Reviewed May 21, 2014

An authentic and unique dine experience! My fellows ordered the food! Every thing remarkable; one on all...the duck salad...simply delicious!
Service? Outstanding...not many words to say, but a very little negative spot about the outdoor veranda which doesn't feature any fan or vaporiser.

Keep it up!
