On recommendation of a colleague we dined at Haiku and let the staff do our ordering for us. What followed was a gastronomical journey through Southeast Asia with a twist. In between courses the waitress kept checking whether her choices were right. In our case they were spot on, but I am sure that if they hadn't been, she would... More

5 of us visited on this occasion and felt it best to order a large selection of dim sum, Sushi and main dishes to eat as they were cooked and served; what a fantastic idea ! Food as good as ever, great wine list, nice champagne choice and fab service; always a favourite and we'll be back soon.

The restaurant was recommended by friends and we enjoyed everything we experienced. The variety of food was great and with the variations on the menu from different kitchens we have to return to taste the rest of the menu. The peking duck with pancakes was the star of the evening. The should however ensure that the wines on their wine... More

Haiku has always been a favorite of mine with great service, great food and a great vibe. My last visit however was quite disappointing, there was so much on the menu that was not available, our waiter was very undertrained but sweet nonetheless. The food was still good but one thing we noticed when looking toward the open kitchen is... More

Excellent food inspired by numerous Asian themes and full of flavour. Service was incredibly friendly (Werner was a star) and was particular to point out to us that all the meat is halal, which is important to us.

The food and service was fantastic, we shared several dishes. The favourite was chicken yakitori, definitely a must!

I enjoyed lunch at Haiku. This is a good time to come as the restaurant is not terribly crowded. Even dining alone, there were plenty of tasting combinations on the menu, making it possible to enjoy a wide variety of their offerings. The sashimi was out of this world, each fish with it's own sauce. Salmon roses too yummy to... More

We had a wonderful meal, the waitress was extremely attentive and explained the menu very clearly and made some excellent suggetions which we accepted. Our only complaint would be the noise the kitchen is open plan and it became extremely noisy as the resturant became busier.

I started from  a negative perspective because this restaurant was recommended by our concierge, whom I presumed had an angle! I couldn't have been more wrong. This was s sublime meal. We didn't have a duff course. Despite FOUR of our choices being unavailable (a good sign on a big menu), everything was delicious especially the sashimi, tempura, green salad... More

We visited in a Friday evening having booked a table, the place was quite busy but it was service and the setting that let the place down: Our waitress was disinterested, didn't care and had no personality, The wine we wanted was out of stock The washrooms were dirty and bins overflowing... The food was nice though, not amazing -... More

The Haiku concept is exotic Asian cuisine. Chinese dim sum, wok and barbeque; Japanese robata grills and sushi, served tapas-style, are some of the dishes to be shared and enjoyed in a stylish setting.DescriptionThe Haiku concept is exotic Asian cuisine.
