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 £58 or £62 per person, Dim Sum Sundays is a weekly lunch event with music from Hakkasan lounge DJs, available every Sunday from 12pm until 6.30pm.

The £62 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.

Please note that the 'Taste of Hakkasan' menu is not available on 14th February.

Priced at £58 per person, the 6-course menu has been created by Chef Ho Hip Wah, Hakkasan Hanway Place’s Chef de Cuisine. Dim Sum Sundays is a weekly event, with the menu available every Sunday from 12midday – 5pm.

The menu encompasses our idea of “modern authenticity” which is at the heart of everything at Hakkasan. We acknowledge tradition while embracing and crafting change.

Highlights include the Crispy duck salad, Chinese chive dumpling with prawn and crabmeat, Crispy smoked duck and pumpkin puff, Pork and prawn shumai and Grilled Chilean sea bass.

Every bit of this dinner was an amazing experience. We were visiting London and wanted a fancy dinner out. Our 5 and 7 year old daughters joined us and the staff could not be more engaging to them as well as us. Impeccable service all around. Food was amazing and brilliant presentation! Our cocktails were handcrafted and they have many non alcoholic fresh fruit drinks. If you are looking for a special night out, we highly recommend! You will not be let down.

With a cool blue theme running throughout, the restaruant is underground (though doesn't feel like it) down a back alley off Tottenham Court Road. The alley is fairly dingy looking, and it is entirely unexpected to find a michelin starred restaurant at the end.

The dim sum Sunday menu is fantastic, and you should leave 90-120 minutes to enjoy it. The cocktails are good also. Great for a date, birthday or special occasion.

Food is always amazing here. Around my twentieth visit in the past 5 years. I go every birthday. Service is amazing. Team always go out of their way to accommodate. This t Me making plain noodles for the 7 year old with us. Have tried premium tasting menu to standard one. Love dim sum Sunday which also comes with 2 cocktails each and half a bottle of champagne per person. Highly recommend.

We went for their Sunday dim sum menu and had a very pleasant time. I'm not entirely convinced by the low lighting and loud music, but it didn't interfere with our enjoyment. The food was of a high standard generally although I don't feel the service was good enough to justify charging 13.5% service as standard.

Usually come here for lunch, the music at dinner is rather loud, night clubby atmosphere. £30 post/pre theatre menu excellent value with cocktail and well known dishes for starter and dessert (duck salad, jivara bomb), but the main of chicken was dry, not well executed and not a great choice for a satisfying meal. We supplemented with another dish. Better to come for dim sum Sunday!

The food was nice but asked for a cocktail to not have ginger but was told they are all premade and can't be changed. The pork belly was very good but the music was pumping rave music and was too loud, left with a slight headache.

Delicious! We visited for a special birthday mean and were not disappointed. The food is outstanding, had one of the set menus and everything was delicious - the chicken satay was especially amazing. One of the strongest cocktails I have ever had as well!
The tables were a bit close to each other and we felt like we were eating with the people next to us (although they were lovely!)
However, I would visit again and have recommended it to my friends already!

Hakkasan has been my favourite restaurant in London for many years, and a place a go with my girlfriend to celebrate anything really. The food is amazing, the staff helpful and it’s a fun place with a vibrant scene. But you go here for the food, or the wine (if you can afford it). Fantastic meal, every time!

Food was good but not outstanding, the service was polite but badly coordinated- three people in a row asking to clear our plates when we were still eating and had no been there very long. They rushed serving main dishes after starters. Lighting takes dark a bit too far, but overall nice atmosphere

17 years of doing the same thing, with the same look in a restaurant scene which has changed immeasurably and for the better in London and yet Hakkasan and its Hanway Place flagship remain absolutely BRILLIANT and at the top of the tree. This is modern Chinese done amazingly well in a super duper setting with great lighting, music and service. Love it.

We had the pre-theatre fixed menu meal and the food quality was exemplary in every detail.
The service was excellent and speedy which is important for theatre goers.
The bar service was outstanding as were the cocktails which were included in the price.
The value for money was great and we shall certainly return with friends to sample their wider menu.

A great dining experience, food was excellent, every bit as good as previous visits, love the ambiance too. Having visited both Hakkasan venues in London, I give this one the nod, it’s a little more cosy, the clientele a little less showy. Very expensive, so one for special occasions only as far as I’m concerned.

I heard a lot of good things about the Hakkasan chain but unfortunately for me it did not live up to my expectations. The service wasn’t the best. Our starters were good. However, when we our mains came out one of the dishes(Mongolian Style Lamb Chops) came out to the table once we had finished the other mains. Also we had heard about the “Jivara Bomb” dessert being the best desert ever. However I found it weird that a ball of rice crispie filled ice cream is worth that amount of money. I didn’t really enjoy the dessert. Overall I think for what your paying it’s not that great and have experienced better places in London. Unfortunately, as this was meant to be a special occasion it was let down by the food and somewhat the service.

Loved the dim sum with its profusion of delicate tastes and the squid starter was beautiful, too.

We enjoyed all the mains. The chicken with its lovely crispy skin and tasty satay sauce was our particular favourite.

Very enjoyable pre-theatre dinner. They were careful to make sure we got served in good time to make the show afterwards.
Cocktails were delicious and food was fresh and tasty. Amazing desert - some sort of parfait chocolate bomb with hot chocolate sauce to pour over.
Quite a dark and moody vibe in the restaurant which was perfect as the weather had just turned stormy outside but would be a bit strange if the sun was shining outside.
Had a great time and will return.
