    The team here were very helpful. I changed my booking twice eventually growing my party from 2 to 6 in the space of an two hours. Thankfully this was no problem. We shared some small plates including some excellent dim sum and added a couple of plates of the outstanding chilli prawns. All the food was exceptionally good and the service impeccable. Thanks very much.

    The bookings are strictly for two hours so forget a long relaxed dinner experience- you gulp the food and wine down and then pay a small fortune for being urged to leave when the two hours are up. Go to the centre point just nearby - nice views from the bar!

    I took my wife for a post theatre meal at Hakkasan, a great place to go as was still buzzing at midnight. The food was absolutely superb, couldn't fault it. However, having arrived at 10:20 for my 10:30 table, we weren't seated until until 10:50, and our main course came at 12:30. I had to ask where every course was and where my drinks were - my bottle of wine took 20 minutes. Considering the cost, this was very poor. We were also advised to order significantly more food than was necessary, but I was not allowed to take it away with me. If you have plenty of time and don't mind waiting, then i would highly recommend, but don't go post-theatre and expect to get away before 1am. I left disappointed...

  • Vegetarian Chinese food at its best
    MissusMiyagi
    Dined on 26/9/2014
    I wanted somewhere special to take my partner on his birthday. I reviewed the menu and thought, as vegetarians, it would be hard to justify spending that much on a meal, especially with a 13.5% service charge but had read food things so..... Yes - it is comparatively expensive but I have to say I couldn't fault a thing about the evening. We were a little early for our booking so were escorted to the bar. The décor is dark, slick and atmospheric, there's a great selection of cocktails, the service was excellent and the vegetarian set meal really showed how different chinese food can be. I'm definitely not a foodie (generally food is food to me) but even I raved about it afterwards. My foodie partner did too, so thanks Hakkasan!

    Venue and service were highlights of dining experience. Some dishes really had the WOW factor that you would expect and other dishes didn't live up to expectations. We didn't get to sample a lot of dishes however, so I guess it came down to our choices. The drinks menu was very extensive too with some very tempting cocktails.

    Had dinner with old friend who is a senior business figure. We shared about eight starters between us and we were full. Food was delicious and came quickly. I have been here before several times and it is always good. It is a bit pricey - but all top London restaurants are. Ambiance is striking and could be too dark for some diners.

    The service was attentive and our waiter was very engaging and attentive without being intrusive. Food was ok but not Michelin status, but the ambience and vibe was lovely. Shame about the little tables and trying to cramp as many tables as it would be a great ambience for a romantic dinner. They did indulge me with a birthday ice cream scoop despite not ordering dessert.

    Having recently had a baby an evening out was not an option but a lunch date with hubby was perfect for my birthday lunch. Hakkasan did not disappoint - we went for ribs and dumplings for starters. Absolutely gorgeous especially the one with the caviar! For mains the pipa duck, chicken satay and rice - again all cooked to perfection topped off with a crisp while wine. Amazing food, service and ambience - worth every penny!

    We went to Hakkasan as part of our 1st wedding anniversary celebration. I had high expectIons of Hakkasan and though the food was nice I wouldn't say it was good value for money. Also we found the tables are rather close together so you don't feel you have much privacy, which affected the overall ambience. Overall it was nice but I don't feel the urge to rush back.

    I was dining with an out-of-towner friend who is an omnivore. I am a vegan. My friend was happy with her soft shell crab and pork belly stir fry and I had options available which included 4 vegetable stir fry and an asparagus and lotus root side dish. Both very nice. Cocktails were good. Ambience perfect - great background music and a good buzz about the restaurant. The lighting perfect for first dates/couples and it compliments the dark wood decor of the restaurant well. Our only gripes: my friend wasn't able to order a single portion of egg fried rice (serves 4) so was limited to the steamed rice and we were greeted with a bit of a cold front from front of house when we floated the idea of a pre-dinner drink before going to the table.

    The food was very well done. Tasted super. Roasted chicken was exceptional. Soft shell carb starter and Fish were a little too oily but still good. Portions are quite generous, therefore there is a good value for price. Ambience was loud around 10pm as the restaurant was full. Chic ambience but also relaxing. We went late on a busy friday night but the service was still good.

    Hagemann
    Dined on 12/9/2014
    Ok, in the reservation was written that the table was reserved for two hours - but when we were about to order a dessert wine to pair, we were said that they expected us to leave after two hours. At this point we were on the table for around 2:20 hs. It didn't matter that we order the best course for six and had 3 bottles of wine. When my wife asked a tea, they refused to serve in the table - only in the bar. Never heard of this kind of thing. And wonder if all the restaurants follow this kind of "psychiatrist appointment" time policy. Ridiculous. If you go there, RUSH to enjoy your meal.

    The food is amazing but the staff can be rude sometimes as they are very busy and have a very limited time you have to stay in the restaurant so if you want to eat on your own time, book later and make sure you can have the table for the entire evening. If you are looking for a restaurant for special occasions, this can't be the one as you have a very limited time to finish the meal, otherwise, wonderful food!

    Visited the restaurant with my friend and my daughter(4years old)for dinner, this was our second time to dine there but we loved the whole experience. Ordered Dimsum platter to start with, then ordered the Duck with Truffe which was super delicious(and looks good too). Please keep it in mind that hey can provide only whole Beijing duck (no half or quarter),so ordered the roast duck with truffe instead, but I was very happy for the choice we made. Atmosphere is cool and special, I'm sure that your guests will be impressed.

    We have be en to the wonderful Hakkasan Hanway Place on numerous occasions, and have always marvelled at the consistent quality an greatness of the experience. Our lunch on Thurs Sept 11th was very disappointing. Even at peak service time the restaurant only had 20 tables taken, which was surprising, the service was slick, however the real disappointment was our food. Wagu beef £(61) and Silver Cid (£35) was way below par, lacking the usual wow factor. With wine the meal was just shy of £350, for which I expect the best. This may have been just a blip, or given how quiet the place was, maybe Hakkasan has had its day? I hope not.

    I originally thought it's the 'Chinese food' for foreigners but found that unexpectedly authentic. They offer a big variety of food and the presentation was amazing. I like the dessert with crispy rice, which is a creative fusion idea. The only downside is there are too many tables and the place is a bit noisy. I would expect a more spacious and quiet restaurant paying this price-a fine dining.

    We were on a 2 hour turn around but the service was slow for drinks and starters. Then they pushed us to order pudding before we were ready and tried to refuse us coffee and presented the bill without being asked for it. I explained we had waited 20 mins for cocktail in the first instance so should be allowed coffee. The stroppy manager came and took our coffee order. Overall food and cocktails were absolutely lovely, service was rude, pushy and lacklustre.

    too dark and music too loud for a 1star Michelin restaurant. Service forgot to bring us warm towels and also champagne we ordered. Champagne was only brought after we reminded the lady. We waited so long for ordering the dessert and coffee so we paid without ordering it. Restaurant cannot compete on an international level...works out only in London. Nice but not more.

    Having heard good things, Hakkasan had been on my "Go to" list for quite some time but i left feeling disappointed. The food was nice but not outstanding and given the prices of each dish, I was expecting to be wow'd. Prawn balls for starters were big and meaty. But go to any chinese restaurant which serves Crab balls and they'll taste exactly the same. The soft shell crab was very dry yet oily at the same time. The black truffle roast duck was cooked well but nothing special. Highlight was the Rib Eye Beef with Merlot which was amazingly tender and full of flavour. Waitresses also couldnt wait to get us out of there as the restaurant was extremely busy. You'll find the same quality in any decent chinese restaurant for half the price.
