    We had a very nice meal, one of my favourite spots every time I visit London. The dim sum and the cod were oustanding, sesame prawns and sweet and sour pork a little too ordinary for a place like this. The people set was a little less happening than usual, I guess the hype crowd migrated to the Mayfair one. Service very attentive, we even got a very professional Italian waiter.

    The good: Fantastic food and great drinks though a little on the sweet side. Good service. The not so good: Very odd wine suggestions with the food. Flat champagne (got a new glass when pointed out to staff). Cold coffee (got new cups when pointed out to staff). All in all we had a good experience, but a place that has a star in the Michelin guide shouldn't serve cold espresso and flat champagne in the first place. Also, the wine suggestions were far from what I have experienced at other restaurants. Still, this is place I would come back to, just spend a little more time with the sommelier when selecting wine.

    2nd time at Hakkasan. As expected the food was good, though considering we spent twice our first time it wasn't stand out as I'd hoped. The presentation of the signature menu was below that of the cheaper taste option, which we'd had the 1st time. Sadly there was lack of attentiveness. Besides cocktails ordered at the start (which were amazing) we weren't asked again for drinks. After we'd finished desert we were left for 30 mins. Would have ordered more drinks but in the end just got the bill. I expect better service at a Michelin star restaurant. Not a complete let down but when it's not busy and asked for 13.5% service on a £150 bill, it's reasonable to expect not to be left for so long. I'd return, but prepared to ask for help.

    Great food and value (taste of Hakkasan) but the service was fairly poor (e.g. bored and uninterested waiter, no alternative suggestions made when some dietary requirements were mentioned, waiter seemed bored and uninterested, no apologies or offer to change an overly sweet cocktail which we ended up leaving almost untouched, etc.).

    Great value Dim Sum Sunday lunch which included 2 cocktails and half a bottle of Champagne per person. The food was excellent and everyone enjoyed it. Only small criticism is that the staff removed plates from the table when some of our party were still eating besides that everything was perfect. Highly recommend, and we will definitely be visiting again.

    My partner and i with our 6month old baby went to Hakkasan for sunday lunch. Even before we arrived the service Hakkasan showed by offering to seat us at a 4person table to accomadate our pram was much appreciated and noted. We had the dim sum sunday menu that I have to say is extremely good value given the amount of alcohol that is included in the offer. The food too was excellent, although i did expect a bit from from the crispy duck salad, everything else was excellent. And no we were not pushed out after 2hrs, but in fact only had unobtrusive and efficent service for as long as we wanted to stay. All the staff there were very friendly and accomodating. I highly reccomend this resturant for foodies with babies and everyone else.

    We went to Hakkasan after the theater to enjoy some crispy duck. The duck we had was amazing amazing amazing! However, there was only one option and we had to order one full duck for two people. Needless to say, it was too big and we felt a bit uncomfortable afterwards despite the amazing taste of the food. Still, I definitely recommend it as it was delicious, juicy and served very nicely.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 23/8/2014
    The Hakkasan is pretentious, over-crowded and over-priced. We booked a table for 9.15pm on Saturday for 4 people. The Hakkasans' confirmation email states that if you're 15 mins late your table will be given away. We were 5 mins early but at first told by the receptionist that we were late, then when her error was corrected by another receptionist she offered no apology and we were then kept waiting for half an hour for our table. To make matters worse there was only standing place at the bar and the bar staff refused to add our bar tab onto our booking, so had to pay cash for our unwanted pre-dinner drinks. This is our third visit to the Hakkasan and our Last!

    Hakkasan is a restaurant l have been to quite a few times and enjoyed over the last ten years, but this time l felt the food was lacking. l found it uninspiring and overpriced for what it was. The restaurant is very noisy and you cannot hear what your guest is saying! Two hundred pounds for 3 people without wine or desert is pricy which I would not have mind if l had a brilliant food experience!! The service in the restaurant was ok, we ask if we wanted drinks and our order came very quickly however it took twenty mins to take our order for food, bearing in mind Hakkasan only gives you a two hour slot on the table, lt's like there policy is 'get them in get them out' !

    This restaurant serves delicious food in an terrific, New York style ambience. The service at the table is good but both times I have dined at this restaurant I have been profoundly put off by the rude ladies at the doorway who regard their list of reservations as if you are a leper and will never be allowed in. I have found them to be strikingly rude and quick to try and turn me away despite my reservations both times. This was particularly off putting before my dining experience had even begun. Fortunately the atmosphere, service and cuisine once inside made up for a lot but I'm wondering whether to ever bother again. There is too much fuss to even get into the restaurant. Not sure why.

    AMAZING! I'm out of superlatives. We went for the signature Dim Sum Sunday menu - half a bottle of champagne and two cocktails plus some of the best dim sum I've had in London. Great underground setting - the place is buzzing. Beautiful food, beautiful place and beautiful people. Great value for money too - have been to other Michelin starred restaurants and paid three times as much for no better. Will be going back again soon.

    We'd been recommended the Dum Sum Sunday arrangement and we were definitely not disappointed. Online booking was easy and communications about the booking went smooth. Food and the dining-experience lived up to Hakkasan's Michelin star-reputation. Service was quick, friendly, attentive and professional. The Dim Sum was simply delicious. Our favorites, in which we could 'taste' the M-star, were the crispy duck salad and the steamed dim sum dishes. The other dishes were also tasting great. For GBP 58 pp including two (excellent) cocktails and half a bottle of champagne pp (GBP 48 pp if you exchange the champagne for tea), we think that the Dim Sum lunch on Sunday is an outstanding deal. But don't expect to be doing much afterwards ;-).

    Went here for lunch and had the Dim Sum Sunday option. Food was great (we loved the crispy duck salad, dim sum dumplings and dessert) and cocktails were nice too. Waiting staff forgot about our champagne but this was quickly rectified and we enjoyed this towards the latter half of the meal even though we ended up spending at least 3 hours instead of the usual allotted 2 hour period. The waiting staff were friendly, helped explain all of the menus/offers and were attentive throughout the entire duration of our meal. Will definitely go back for an evening meal and drinks. Fabulous!

    Thoroughly enjoyable meal at Hakkasan - had the £118 tasting menu. The crab and duck to start were out of this world - could have happily had these all night long. The lobster, sea bass and vegetables that followed were delicious. The sea bass in particular was a taste sensation. Didn't really enjoy the mushroom stir fry but that's just personal preference, nothing wrong with the food itself! The Wagyu beef and peking duck were also amazing but by this point, we had had enough - so much food, too much for just two people really. Desserts were also good but didn't really register as we were so full! Excellent and extensive wine list, the sommelier was knowledgeable and very helpful indeed. Not a cheap night, but a lovely treat.

    And I would never go back. No only the food has become ordinary and boring. Now, the service is pushy and in a rush to make more money. it is like being in China's restaurants. I lived in Hong Kong for 2 years so I know what I talking about it. The food comes fast that it becomes adequate and just plain boring. I used to say that this place was one the best and creative in the London restaurant scene but cannot say it anymore. If you go for the cheap set menu maybe you will be happy as that's what is worth. We arrived at 8pm and were kicked out by 10. Spending almost 600 pounds on a dinner for 3 it cannot be called fine dining. So, anyone should go for the 3 meal special and you will be better off.

    Had a nice meal, food was good. We booked late so had to eat early !!! The meal was very rushed (obviously wanted us out) Went for a cigarette (or vape) after the main course When returned they had served the deserts including pouring my hot sauce over Ice Cream !!! - They replaced the pudding, so I eat alone for that one !!! Not really a Michelin Star experience at all I;m afraid Would not return.
