Description: Hakkasan Mumbai opened in June 2011 in the fashionable Bandra district, and has since become one of the most popular dining destinations in the city. Designers Gilles & Boissier combined Hakkasan's signature design elements, such as dark-stained English oak screens and latticing, with a backlit blue glass that surrounds the contemporary restaurant. A 16-metre blue glass and stainless steel bar, along with an open-plan kitchen, add to the restaurant's sense of theatre. Serving an extensive range of vegetarian dishes alongside Hakkasan signature dishes, the restaurant accommodates 120 guests, including a private dining area and the 44-seat Ling Ling lounge.

“Overhyped place.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

This has been the most talked about and hyped restaurant in Mumbai since it opened its doors in Mumbai last year.
We three went there on a four course tasting menu.
We were very graciously escorted to the restaurant and our tables. The ambience was superb! Lit blue the long bar was exquisite.
We were given a nice cosy corner and the waiter was very attentive and efficient. But it all fell apart when the food started arriving - I think the first two courses were quite bland and very average tasting food.
The main course - Indian Salmon in patong sauce was kinda better but really I wouldn't pay this much money for this food.

The celebrity quotient was right there, and the place was buzzing on a Wednesday evening! Except for the great ambience ( so maybe a few drinks) I wouldn't go back here for the food ever.

“Brunch Hakasaan Mumbai”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

Just returned from a disappointing brunch at Hakkasan. Food was good but the service was an unmitigated disaster. Food was chucked on to our table and the cocktails took over 20 minutes to arrive. It was like they were intentionally holding back the bar service so as to control the alcohol flow since it was included in the price of the brunch.
There was no one to clear our table after main course was done and we had to call for the Manager who had absolutely no clue what was happening in the restaurant. Finally we just got fed up and had to leave the table with our main course still lying on it and pass on dessert and headed to the front desk to pay our bill.
Not going back in a hurry....... Please Hakkasan London..... I've been there a few times and have loved it each time I've been there.......Please take control of this franchisee before it goes down the tubes

“Amazing food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013

The ambience is fab. The food even better. We opted for the "Taste of Hakkasan".
Every dish was perfect. The edemame dumplings are to die for. The Indian salmon in patong sauce - yumm!
At the end of the meal we couldn't have another bite. Even though it was a tasting menu, they did not hold back - the waiter kept asking if we would like repeats of any dish.
Alcohol/ soft drinks are not included in the price.

“" Great fine dine place in Mumbai "”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

It was amazed to see the decor and such hip set up. Loved the food, service and ambience. Wine menu is fantastic. Finally Mumbai is having some great Michelin star restaurants. So much choice for vegetarians.

“Inventive presentation and flavor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

Am always surprised when taken out for Chinese food while in Mumbai for business and was even more surprised when my local colleagues told me it was a Michelin star rated restaurant. But what an amazing meal.

The ambience is very hip, club-like, blue light and bar area once you get up the elevator to the restaurant. On a monday night at 8 it was not exactly hopping with business, but filled up a little as the evening progressed.

We had a set menu that include a wide range of starters and mains - all delicious. Menu included veg, fish and chicken. A huge variety for those of us who eat fish and chicken but not a great set up for the 3 vegetarians in our group of 8. They ought to adjust what they bring out based on # of meat and veg eaters, as a lot of the fish and chicken went to waste (and rumor has it they don't allow you to take any left over out of the restaurant).

Be sure to save some room for dessert - the sorbets and chocolate gelato were fabulous.
