Chinese
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.

The food is heavenly, the service is very very good, i’d recommend anyone to go! The music is a bit loud and too club style for fine dining. It’s definitely a must visit

Good Food, Great Ambience, NO committed manager - has no idea how to treat customers or deal with problems.

Manager runs away from problems...NO idea how to manage.

Had the set menu and was a bit disappointed. As some of the dishes were great, some were very disappointing.
For a Michelin level restaurant and for this price, I would expect a much better experience

The dim sum package is packed with value! We got eight delicious baskets delivered very quickly, super fresh and steaming. The salt and pepper squid is a must! The xiao long bao was delicious as were the har gau which didn’t need the gold flake but guess it’s part of the theatre for it. Really wanted to love the chicken taro fried dumplings as they are my favorite kind, but was disappointed in them. Service was exceptional. We’ll definitely be back.

Love the food and great service. The ambiance was dark and sophisticated. The negatives are my sister was bitten by a lot mosquitoes and it was on pricey side. Still recommended to visit with a date or friends and fam

We have just celebrated our 40th Wedding Anniversary at Hakkasan Emirates Palace this weekend and it was amazing.

We had a 7:00 p.m. reservation booked ahead of time by my husband. It was relatively quiet upon arrival and our table was ready and waiting. Our hostess/server Jenny was very helpful in explaining our options. We chose the EID fixed menu which suited our appetite and food preferences to perfection.

From the soup starter to the delicious dessert, every platter was a delightful assortment of very tasty morsels with accompanying sauces and dips. Everything was freshly prepared and of top quality.

We had expected the small platters and courses to be light and suit our small-ish appetite. In fact the multi-course meal added up to a substantial amount of food by the time we arrive at dessert.

Service was extraordinary. Not rushed, just right. Each course was a culinary delight and piping hot...just how we like it.

By the time we had finished dinner, the restaurant inside was probably at capacity. I didn't notice any dinners at the outside terrace area.

The decor is exciting with its rich colours and assorted materials used. The music was apropos. We will be paying another visit in the not too distant future. The fixed price menu was excellent value for money.

We were very disappointed with the overall experience. We had a hair in our food. We were rushed through the food service. Plates removed with food before we had finished abs then when asked for more were told it was a once only food offer. So value for money and experience there are better places

I had the dimsum platter, it was out of this world! My companion had the Australian lamb rack, and was equally blown away by the taste, the tenderness and the presentation of the food. The staff are professional, and smiled with their hearts! We will be back for sure.

Excellent Friday night brunch. We were accommodated quite last minute and got wonderful seats with lovely view. Food was great, drinks also. Service fast and friendly.
Unfortunately there was no music playing as there was a state of mourning, but we could hear the UFC fight next door.

Hakkasan has excellent food and it is definitely one of our favourite restaurants to go to. The Dim Sum Platter, San Pei Chicken Claypot and Hand-Pulled Noodle were the great stand-out tasting dishes however we definitely did not like the fact that Pippa Duck has been removed from the menu.

Our late dinner sitting was let down by the slow service - it was far too long in between timing of courses. The staff did not pick up on this annoyance or give any explanation.

Overall an enjoyable evening although a few points could be improved:

Outside seating was damp and seemed to get worse during evening. Perhaps due to weather conditions however not the most comfortable for a high end restaurant.

Parking was unclear and we were not aware it would not be possible to leave our car overnight until leaving the restaurant. Ended up having to go to hotel reception and taking with valet tram at end of evening to arrange.

Service generally good albeit slow at times.
