Hakkasan Abu Dhabi opened in June 2010, bringing Hakkasan’s award-winning cuisine to the landmark Emirates Palace.
Comprising a restaurant, bar and lounge as well as four private dining rooms, the 16,000 sq ft space is separated by carved wooden screens and latticing that echo the rich interiors of the London flagship restaurant.

Long-time design partner Gilles & Boissier designed the space with the Hakkasan ethos of the modern ethnic, interpreting it for the United Arab Emirates. Embroidered furniture and marbled Chinese forms enrich the space, and the main dining area is crafted into a wooden cage surrounded by backlit blue glass and a stainless steel frame.

Signature Hakkasan dishes like Peking Duck with Caviar and Grilled Wagyu Beef with King Soy Sauce are served alongside a set of new dishes created especially for an Emirate clientele.

Unreal... the most delicious food, and I have never experienced such amazingly good service before. We are still dreaming about this food and service. We are veggie and the options were superb. Lettuce wraps and dim sum were exquisite. Would travel half way around the world again for this evening's experience.

a very noisy place where there is a huge number of Chinese tourists, children under 5 years old and others. they shout and litter, for such an institution it is not permissible. very long service, waited about 20 minutes for payment, the desserts were on the table for about 30 minutes. the food was quite tasty and well served, but the desserts spoiled the whole impression. regular ice cream, two circles ... in a restaurant where we gave $ 350 with wine. They expected to see something similar, like hakassan in london, but these are two completely different places.

Hakkasan had a great atmosphere for Thursday night dining in Abu Dhabi. The service was terrific! I will definitely go back. I will need to try more of their food offerings before I can give them four or five stars for food. The food was tasty, but it just didn't meet my expectations. I understand that Hakkasan is Asian fusion, but I feel that the menu would benefit from more authentic Asian items (in addition to the fusion items offered). For example, a few more authentic Szechuan cuisine items, Japanese steaks, or Vietnamese soups.

Volume of music should be adjustable.
Although we requested to adjust the volume, it was rejected.

The food and ambience was really nice but the service was far too slow. The food came out really quick which was fine but we were left waiting for for ages when it came for them to clear the plates and even longer once we were given the dessert menu. We probably wasted around an hour waiting.

Disappointing return to Hakkasan - a romantic outside table was requested on booking but we were given a table in between 2 large families one of which had a young very well behaved little boy but was watch his iPad with sound all during the meal - not quite the romantic table we had hoped for even though plenty of other tables were available

Very overpriced. Visited some hakkasan restaurants around the world and this was by far the most expensive. Food or drinks did not change for the extra costs and service got worse.
