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.

    Been meaning to try Hakkasan for some time so decided to Book as a treat for my wife, we Arrived and were rushed to our table, started off with decent cocktails placed our orders we ordered a couple of starters and our waiter advised we would need 2-3 mains between us to share which we ordered with sides of noodles and veg. Beware the portions are large, 1 main and sides would probably have been sufficient especially if you are going to eat desert, as it was we had a couple of dishes that were untouched suggested they wrap these up for us however told they do not allow this, would have thought that given I had paid around 100 for these dishes alone I should be able to do exactly what I want to with them!! Anyway not wanting to sour the night I let it go, the ambience here is busy you are close to the tables around you, serving staff were very attentive in fact constantly leaning over us pouring wine throughout. Bits of the food were good some fell well short, wine was pretty poor for the price, all in all very expensive for a pretty underwhelming experience there are many other restaurants in this price bracket that are far better.

    I visit the Hakkasan Hanway Place location 2-3x per year and am always very happy with the food. This is the first time that I have noticed a quality drop. First, they removed the strawberry ginger belini from the drinks menu. It had been the best aperitif on the menu. Why get rid of it? Next, the Thai chili soft shell crab, which used to be one of the most amazing foods I had ever eaten, was extremely disappointing, almost ordinary. Another staple appetizer, the jasmine tea smoked ribs, was also not up to its usual standards. They were slightly dry and the bone was flaky. The main course salt and pepper stir fry rib eye in a merlot sauce was excellent. no complaints there. It also seemed as though the already high prices had gone up. At this point, I would not pay those prices for the quality I received. I will likely give it another try at some point, but if they disappoint twice in a row that is it.

    I believe if you want high end dining then this is your place. The ambience was beautiful and the service was probably the best I have seen for a long time. Our waiter Eddie was well presented and made us feel welcome. We were first asked to sit down at the bar to have a drink which was a nice contrast but had arrived whilst their was a shift briefing for staff which was the reason why we were not sat down immediately. The food was tasteful and full of flavour. I believe there needs to be more on the menu but we were content with what we had available. I would reccomend this place to all friends and family.

    Hakkasan is great, truffled duck is amazing, the Dim Sum is not as nice as Yauatcha though. Make sure you try the Scallop siu mai, the sticky rice, and the prawn and bean curd cheung fun ... oh, and the jasmine ribs are so good too!

    The food here is fantastic. The service was average at best (bringing drinks we didn't order, leaning over diners, forgetting an additional order). The payment machine failed during first payment and the restaurant then charged for the meal twice which I'm yet to see sorted out.

    Absolutely stunning food - cannot fault it. Service on the other hand is a bit inflexible and disjointed. Multiple waiters, servers, cleaner up-ers. Once settled in though, great experience. Not as formal as some restaurants. My pet hate of this restaurant are the bouncer and clipboard girl at the entrance. Making it seem overly pretentious. Really puts me off the initial experience to the restaurant.

    Hosted family party of 6 to celebrate daughter's 30th birthday. Great choice of cocktails and we all chose the £60 fixed menus and good Burgundy wines. Atmosphere totally ruined when waitress stated company policy was we had to leave the table as time was up. So no time for coffee and after dinner drinks. Made us all feel like a commodity for their benefit. Yes they state in the reservation about maximum time and if they are going to be rigid they should advise, say 30 minutes before and not just at the end. We wanted to enjoy and relax as a family not spend our time clock watching.

My bf got the dessert with a candle and "happy birthday" written on the plate. He was so surprised and loved it! We can't wait to come back for more! For me, the dessert was the best I have ever had! :)

    My girlfriend and I had a nice meal at hakasan, but you kind of expect a bit more. The best things were the desserts and you dont go to a fine dining chinese reataurant for great western desserts. We had the taste of hakasan menus, and whilst pleasant it wasnt wow. Most disappointing were the portion sizes. I ended up having to order an additional main off the a la carte, which was much bigger. Could imagine that this place would be great with a group of friends all sharing mains and enjoying the innovative cocktails on offer.

    Weekday lunch time dim sum menu is fantastic. Food was delicious especially the sesame prawn toast and scallop dumplings! Booked online and mentioned we were celebrating a birthday, without any prompting or reminding they brought ice cream with a candle for my partner. Our waiter Vincenzo was extremely friendly and very helpful in explaining what was what on the menu. Even the maitre d' wished him happy birthday (tiny things make a difference). Definitely heading back for their Dim Sum Sunday special.

    We had the taste of Hakkasan Menu which is great value for great food. We enjoyed our starter and main very much. You can then choose any dessert from the menu. We had the chocolate bomb (I forgot its exact name). In comparisson to the rest of the menu it wasn't as refined. It really was a "bomb" and it filled me to bursting. I don't really like leaving the table feeling absolutely full. But that's the only remark I can make on an otherwise perfect dining experience.

    Hakkasan has been on my "list" for a little while now, but as my bf is not that keen on "posh restaurants" it's taken a while to get around to it. The food was amazing - very tasty and good sized portions. The service I found a little odd. We were seated at the bar to have a drink as we arrived a little early and promptly ignored for 10 minutes. We were seated at a table which was awkwardly lined up over the crack between 2 sofa edges, which was impossible to sit at comfortably, & although I commented it was uncomfortable to the waiter, it was ignored and I was left to perch awkwardly. I would have liked someone to have checked if we wanted to add any veg to our meal - but we only realised when our meal arrived our mistake.

    It's cool, funky and modern but also quite Hipp. Food is fantastic. Service is also very good. My one complaint is our table was booked for 6.30 and they put pressure on us to leave at 9. We needed to go anyway so no issue but if I hadn't I would have had a row with them as the booking didn't mention this.

  • Delicious Birthday Dinner

    Dined on 5/11/2014
    My boyfriend's birthday dinner was an amazing experience from the delicious, flavourful food to the attentive staff and chilled ambience. The vegetarian options were very enjoyable and I showed it by cleaning my plate! Although a neighbouring diner knocked my glass of water on me with her giant handbag, the dining experience was still one to remember. About 4 members of staff came rushing to me without being called for, and assisted in cleaning up the spill and offered me hot towels. Without them my temper would have been uncontrollable and the whole evening would have been ruined. Thank you all for making our evening a special one to remember. We will definitely be coming back again.

    Second time at Hakkasan. First time was for dinner where I thought the ambience was better than for lunch ie more vibrant, hence down rating ambience this time. Couldn't fault service and food was great. Perhaps our expectations were a little high in expecting a taste extravaganza. Thought it expensive. Would go again, but would try somewhere else in between like the Cinnamon Club. Overall very good though.
