“Good and interesting food, but a bit overpriced”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

My wife and I tried Hakkasan for the first time during our most recent visit to South Beach. We usually eat only at SoBe restaurants when we stay there, but we heard good things about Hakkasan, so we ventured out of SoBe to give it a try.

Overall, we enjoyed the experience. There are lots of interesting items on both the food and drink menu (it was hard to decide). The food was very good, the ambiance and decor were very cool, and the service was great. The price was a bit high for what you get -- you're paying a premium for eating at the Fontainebleau.

For cocktails, we both ordered the Far East Margarita, which was really good and really spicy. For starters we shared the Jasmine Tea Soaked Beef Short Rib -- it was very tasty, but it was served on the bone and very fatty, so we didn't enjoy it as much as we might have otherwise. For entrees, we shared the Stir-Fried XO Prawns with Pineapple and the Crispy Chicken with Orange Sauce, with a bowl of Jasmine Rice on the side. Everything was very tasty, and the presentation for all the dishes was excellent. The portions didn't look huge, but we were full by the time we finished -- we couldn't finish the rice, and we didn't have room for dessert. Our server Antoine provided exception service throughout.

The Hakkasan is worth trying if you don't mind paying the price, and I'm glad we tried it. I don't know if we'll be back, especially since we can't walk there from SoBe, but you never know.
