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.

I can't say enough about this place.
It turned out to be an extraordinary venue to celebrate our anniversary.
You'll find amazing dishes, atmosphere, and service.
Simply the best!

This restaurant has a great atmosphere and decoration with excellent food. Weather permitting the outside area is preferred. The menu will take time to read, but the helpful staff will assist.

Friends recommended this restuarant, and as we were staying at the hotel, we gave it a go.

I called the day before to make a reservation, very efficient! But when I asked, if they had any "Set menu's" the answer was: "No" - not true, and we nearly missed out on it!

When we arrived and get the menu's we could see, that they indeed had a set menu, and it looked really good for the price, but it's only possible to order from 6-7.30 pm, and it was already 7.30... we made a quick decision and ordered the menu. Great choice!

The soup arrived quickly after ordering together with the included sake. We ordered a white wine from the long list of wines, and the wine was excellent.
we barely finnished the soup, before starters were served - the best dim sum I have ever had! Usually I do not like dim sum, but theese were delicious, my only problem was, that I did not even have time to finish them, before the next food was presented... no sense of "timing" at all, and that is a must at a restaurant of this caliber...

We asked to wait a bit with our mains, so had time to talk and enjoy. When the main arrived it was devine! One of the best mains I have ever had - so tasteful in every bite with flavors popping out in your mouth.

Finally it was time for dessert; my favourite, Chocolate fondant - not really sure, what this has to do with chineese/asian cooking, but OMG it was amazing!! Totally loved it!

So all in all a fantastic meal, but they should look at timing the dishes better.
This is a high end restaurant price wise, we paid around 500 aed per person, for food, water and wine.

We enjoyed a wonderful meal at this establishment. Highly recommend the Wagyu ribs for a starter option. Unfortunately the outdoor area was fully booked but still a good ambience within the restaurant. Attentive staff. Recommend & will return on our next visit.
