A word from Hakkasan Hanway Place

Hakkasan Hanway Place is the original Hakkasan restaurant. This Michelin starred Chinese restaurant was designed by the famed Christian Liaigre, the intricate wooden lattice screens, carved out of dark English oak, invite discerning guests for a unique dining experience with contemporary cuisine from Chef Tong Chee Hwee. The menu has a strong Chinese ethnic identity with an ethos of Cantonese cooking.

Hakkasan Hanway Place launched ‘Dim Sum Sundays’ in 2013. Priced at £48 or £58 per person, Dim Sum Sundays is a weekly lunch event with music from Hakkasan lounge DJs, available every Sunday from 12pm until 5.00pm, and from October 26th the menu is available up until 6.30pm.

The £58 menu includes a cocktail from Hakkasan’s award-winning list to start, followed by a half bottle of Louis Roederer Brut Premier Champagne per person ( or a Magnum per 4 guests) and concludes with a digestive cocktail to enjoy with dessert.

    The food and service was outstanding we arrived early and were seated straight away. The food was delicious,flavoursome and light and the cocktails were fantastic and reasonably priced. The interior was fantastic and had thE most amazing smell when you entered the building. The music that was played also helped to add to the hip vibe!The staff were extremely attentive and friendly. I would definitely recommend hakkasan to anyone who's looking for somewhere with a modern take on Chinese food for a special occasion.

    So my husband and I had been looking to book this restuarants for awhile especially after reading reviews and it being consistently voted as one of the best restaurants and were especially excited to learn that it also had a Michelin star. The ambience was nice, as you would expect busy, stylish, laid back and not pretencious at all. Food was nice however we expecected it to be outstanding in taste and have a certain finiese to the dishes. It was overpriced and had tried many of the dishes in other restaurants which were equally as good if not better! The service was good but nothing special which it should have been considering its Michelin star! In short it didn't live up to the hype!

    We went on a Friday night to celebrate an anniversary, it was extremely noisy in there with music blasting. The food and service were very good but the ambience really made this no better than dim sum at ping pong. At the prices they charge (we paid 200 for two) they need to offer the right ambience for a special occasion. There are many restaurants in london that deliver this and I would never recommend Hakkasan to anybody for a special occasion. I find it difficult to believe that Hakkasan has a Michelin star.

    Although the food was excellent, the restaurant was very crowded and tables very close together making it oppressive.The service was rather rushed, my starter arrived before my pre dinner drink! I would not go back for dinner and I am amazed that it has a Michelin star.

    Service and decoration was good and the wine list is excellent. However quality of food was lacking in particular given the expectation in light of the Michelin star rating also the value was lacking given the exorbitant price for what was not so great food.

    This place didn't disappoint. Hakkasan is like the love child of NYC's Buddakan and a speakeasy. Great house groove playing all night, very nice pacing to the tasting menu, delicious flavors, temperatures of dishes were spot on when served, very pleasant wait staff, moody and dark interior - all right up my alley! I'd go back in a heartbeat. Do be aware it is spendy and the interior is really quite dark.

    I dined out with a friend and found the food to be very good. The two seater tables were very close to each other but the lighting was low enough that it didn't feel like we sitting with others. The waiter was a little over-attentive and we felt rushed to order but he left us to linger after the meal which made up for it. Will visit again.

  • Not great for dietary requirements
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 19/10/2014
    We went along for the brunch menu offered on a Sunday. We advised our waitress one of the diners was allergic to shellfish so could the brunch menu be altered to accommodate this. This sent our waitress into absolute melt down. I can't believe we are the first diners at Hakkasan to have ever had dietary requirements. To begin with, we were told the diner with the shellfish allergy would simply miss out on the courses that contained shellfish?? We immediately told her that wasn't suitable and a substitute should be served in its place. After much deliberating and back and forth with her managers and the kitchen, the waitress finally realised how to manage the situation. Expect more of a restaurant like this.

    Great restaurant if you're looking for something a bit special or want to impress. Incredible food, just be careful not to over order, the portions are surprisingly generous! We were there for a birthday and without the prompt they brought out a dessert decorated with a personal message and candle, such a lovely touch and really finished the night perfectly.

    Have been at both Hanway Place and Mayfair restaurants in the past. Admittedly during the week on business and this latest experience was on a weekend. However, the ambience was much different than i remembered. Loud "club music" playing and overall ambient from conversations also very loud. Needed to speak loudly to be heard by my companion --it was a birthday celebration and turned out to be a bad choice. Ambience fine if you are in a loud group and wanting to party, but for the money there are better choices if you are looking to be able to have a conversation with your partner.

    I decided to go here for my anniversary as my girlfriend loves Chinese food and it was recommended as one of the best and it didn't disappoint. The food was fantastic and we shared the salt and black pepper squid to start, the best I've had and duck rolls and the pork ribs (falling off the bone). The mains were if not better as I had what can only be described as fillet steak in a black Bean sauce and my girlfriend had the sweat and sour pork which was fantastic. Top that off with a great wine and service (a special desert made for our anniversary which wasn't requested, nice touch) and I couldn't recommend it highly enough.

    Hakkasan comes with a high reputation so I had high expectations. I wasn't disappointed. The food and the service were absolutely excellent, even outstanding. It's not cheap but you really get what you pay for. Service was equally good, always attentative but not overbearing. A great overall experience.

    I went before with friends and ordered from the normal menu. We absolutely loved it (but the bill was ridiculous) so this time I went with my partner before the Opera and we ordered from the "Best of Hakkasan" taster menu. I think that this taster menu is not as good as ordering from the regular one. Portions were small and the food although beautifully cooked, wasn't very interesting (except the scrab starter, that was amazing). I'll definitely go again but I would love to see different taster menus as otherwise, it can be a very expensive night ordering from the regular menu. Service as usual was impecable. I love this place :)

    Ate at Hakkasan with two friends. We had the £35 menu which was good value. The steamed dumplings were delicious and tender and the beef and sea bass that followed were also very nicely cooked. Surprisingly though the highlight for all of us was the desserts - I had the chocolate ginger torte which was fabulous. The ambience is very dark and intimate, would be ideal for a date or special treat. It's hard to find though, make sure you have a good look at the map before you set off! Service was very attentive and pretty speedy. Would recommend.

    We recently celebrated a birthday and had the Dim Sum Sunday menu, complete with 2 cocktails and half bottle of champagne each. The food was very good, though we had to ask for an extra venison puff as we were one short on our table of 5; the waiter quickly brought us another one, and apologised. Though the restaurant was very busy, our glasses were kept nicely topped up and the food kept coming; we were asked if we'd like a break before our main course, which we did. We were also asked if we'd all like the same main, or some of the sea bass and some of the beef - we had some of both and the dishes were delicious. When they brought out the desserts, they'd prepared a plate with happy birthday and a candle, a very nice touch.
