Really really good dim sum. The fried we ordered rice was ok and the sweet and sour pork was good, maybe too well cooked. The server was knowledgeable. The dinning room got really noisy and it made it difficult to hear our conversations. Overall it was a pleasant experience and the dim sum was just beyond. Worth going.

We were 8 people having our Xmas lunch. The food and wine were fabulous. The staff were very attentive and helpful with explanations about the food. Everything that we ordered came out quickly and an eye was kept on our wine bottles so that more could be ordered. Everything is very professional.
The decor is also very cool.

We were celebrating our anniversary. We felt really uncomfortable ordering the food because the waiter was really impatient and rude and couldn’t help us at all deciding the food though we asked for recommendations. We ordered then jivara bomb for dessert and she just splashed the chocolate over, still she saw that we were taking a video. Hakkasan has been my favorite restaurant for a long time but this completely ruined our night

Furthermore, we have implemented refresher training focused on awareness, communication and guest experience to ensure this lapse of attentiveness does not occur again. We hope we will have the chance to redeem ourselves soon. Kind regards the Hakkasan Team

They had removed the Taste of Hakkasan menu from their Christmas offering which was a pain (it makes life very easy), and the next set menu up was £88 which is a significant jump. But that aside, our waitress was unfriendly and at the end of our very expensive lunch she said they had another party booked on our table and could we take our tea and move. It seems a shame, Hakkasan has replaced Kai for my family and I as our favourite Asian restaurant in Mayfair and the food is always exceptional but when spending a few hundred pounds on a lunch I don’t expect to be hustled out after two hours and leave feeling like there isn’t a friendly face in the whole restaurant.

Hanway Place is the better option in terms of ambience and food. Although you would expect the food to be of the same quality, Mayfair was a slight let down. Service is fine, but bringing about 15 dishes for four people in one go is over the top, and of course results in one or two cold dishes. I do not recall Hanway Place ever doing that.

Set menu for 2. Dim Sum excellent. The 4 mains were all served almost simultaneously which means they get cold. Rechauds are sorely needed. The duck dish was very heavy, the cod in champagne and the venison outstanding. Dessert nothing special - some apple concoction and a pineapple dish. Service very good and the ambiance is great. The restaurant in Shanghai is far better though.

The quality of the food was good, except the dessert. Only chocolate. So for a 'signature' dessert it was very disappointed. It was also too expensive taking the quality of the food into account. Too noisy. And also, the service was to 'pushy'. We really needed to get out so other clients could take our table. So we did not really felt 'welcome' at the restaurant.

Wouldn’t let us sit downstairs despite booking a month ago - seems they are giving priority over later bookings. Host snatched our coats out our hand and was generally rude (I.e not welcoming). Was 40 mins before I got my first drink and ordered only to be told there was no duck (half 7 on a Tuesday night) with no pre warning as we were sat and no apology. Music was way too loud upstairs. Sea bass was amazing though! Service wasn’t memorable..staff seems flustered and over worked: avoid in busy season

We usually had great experiences with Hakkasan. This time the service rushed us through with the menu and even wanted to take the plate from my friend whilst she was still eating. The food was rushed whilst the wine took long...

Some of the dishes were outstanding, while others were more average. Very good coctails. Did NOT like the way we as customers are first sent to the bar, and then rushed through a 7 course meal in just two hours from arrival until you get the bill at the same time as dessert are served and are more or less asked to hurry. Reminds me more of a money machine than fine dining.

Party of four. Sat on the ground floor for the first time - where the music was horribly loud. Hard to maintain a conversation. Good advice from waiter to order from 2 set menus. I said I would like to order extra rice as I have big appetite. Waiter twice insisted I wouldn't need it. (I did and had to order it later). During payment, there was a transmission problem with the card machine and the waiter went to speak to the manager which made me feel uncomfortable - especially when he referred to the bill and so revealed the cost of the meal to my guests. The food itself was excellent. But it made us realise that on a previous visit two weeks earlier - also 4 people with a set menu - some of the food did not arrive! We had several more items on the second visit. When you're paying more than £500 for a meal for 4, I think it should be smoother than this. The dreadful volume of music on the ground floor makes it unlikely I would choose the Hakkasan again.

Again a great te at Hakkasan Mayfair. This time we took the Pearl menu. Highlights of this menu are the Peking Duck and the signature dessert (chocolate treat in overdrive). One tip for the team: next time, if one of the table guests is in the restroom, please wait a moment with serving out until that person is back. Ranking comes with obligations I would say!

The food was (and is) always outstanding. The service was terrible. We arrived five minutes early for our reservation, introduced ourselves at reception, and were brusquely told our table wasn’t ready and we’d need to go to the bar and wait. We did so, and fifteen minutes passed. We walked to the front and asked, politely, if our table was ready, and the man at the front told us, rudely, “no, I would have told you if it was”. Fifteen minutes later (twenty five minutes after our reserved time) we asked again, and he wordlessly walked us, a group of three, to a table clearly meant for two, and walked away. We then waited ten minutes for our server to arrive. The food itself arrived on time and delicious, but the getting there was beyond disappointing.
