Description: 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.

Set on the property of the beautiful Emirates Palace, which is one of the most spectacular hotels in the world, Hakkasan delivers amazing cocktails, terrific food, and solid service...at a high price. Although very unique, the cocktails were prepared perfectly. The food is terrific, and the Hakkasan way of dining (family style) allows your party to try different items from the menu. The atmosphere is great, but if the weather permits, I strongly suggest sitting outside. Although you'll be spending at least $100 per person, the food is terrific. Make sure to make a reservation in order as one is required to enter the premises.

This is a place you should visit and enjoy ya fantastic meal. The place and the atmosphere is fantastic. The taste of the food is delicious. The price is a bit at the high end but this is the Emirates Palace you should know that it is not cheep but it is a must go on an special occasion such as birthdays wedding anniversaries ...etc. I would say that the average meal per person is about AED 500. so pump you Wallet and enjoy ur night.

Wow, what a total disappointment!
Looking forward to a fresh,modern approach to a Chinese meal,and we ended up eating a very poor,takeaway quality meal at rip off prices.
Reviews on here and the reputation of the chain compelled me to book it, but it was by far the most expensive and worst meal we have ever eaten in Abu dhabi.
We were asked if anything was wrong with our meal, as we left most of the main course, and we said it was poor, however nothing was done to rectify the situation.
Squid starter was very greasy, and all food was served with a chilli sauce from a bottle. Utter rubbish, don't waste your money.
