The staff were always ready to serve and assist us and the decor and ambience of the restaurant were good, possibly a tad too dark to be able to read the menu comfortably. The food was well presented but nothing really outstanding for the price...More

We arrived early in the evening and there were plenty of empty tables, which was a surprise as it was a Saturday evening. However, the ambience was good, lighting just right, the eating areas are screened off with just a few tables in each area...More

Excellent food and atmosphere, the service is great, it is one of the places you can go with kids and there are a lot of vegetarian options in the menu. The food and drinks are overpriced, taking in account the offers of European similar restaurants,...More

Hi, We're in Abu Dhabi soon and are staying very close to the Emirates Palace, so the Hakkasan is convenient to visit. However when we went last time we were less than impressed with our food choices. As we would like to try again can you recommend any particular dishes. We enjoy almost all Chinese food apart from dim sum. Thanks,

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.
