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.

I had heard that the Emirates Places was an amazing place and Hakkasan was one of the best restaurants in Abu Dhabi and they were right. The outdoor patio was absolutely beautiful and comfortable, it was a little chilly and they offer scarfs to keep warm.

The food was absolutely delicious especially the signature Peking duck and Jasmine tea smoked Wagyu beef ribs, the drinks were excellent. The service and attention to detail were simply outstanding and is by far one of the best dinning experiences in Abu Dhabi and highly recommend.

Outstanding and every bit as good as the London branch where I’m a regular. Delicious dumplings, and excellent service. Absolutely loved it. The best meal I’ve had in ages. I’d give 20 stars if I could :))

Only tiny feedback was that I was seated too close to loud groups. Staff helped facilitate my request to move to quieter part of restaurant.

Food was great, some dishes were already somewhat cold. Biggest issue was that our food didn’t arrive together. So some were eating others still waiting for the main course to come. Attention of the service was ok but I would expect more of a Restaurant in this category.

Hakkasan is definitely one of the best restaurants we’ve been to. Our serve Koh is amazing. As first time guests, we were accommodated with the best service. Looking forward to our next visit at this restaurant.

I went to celebrate my Birthday and I’m so glad I chose this place. The setting was fantastic located in Emirates Palace and the table was outside on the terrace absolutely amazing ambiance. The staff were knowledgeable, friendly and did everything right. The food was fabulous too. My desert came on a plate with Happy Birthday and my name which was impressive and made me feel special. I could not have asked for a more perfect evening. Thank you Hakkasan 🙏🏻

Arrived 7.00 which is too early for Abu Dhabi eating but suits us. Attentive charming staff talked us through menu choices. Chose a tasting type menu. Started with a fish soup with a ying yang theme follwed by starters with the most delicious fried nuts and dim sung. Main course was a deeply unctuos beef dish , spicey fried prawns and a roasted seabass in honey which flaked perfectly. Pudding arrived looking like a large Ferrero Rocher chocolate but was far more delicious. Although we sat inside to eat they took us outside to finish our wine and enjoy the view. Heading back there on Saturday to say thanks to friends who helped us out during our quarentine coming back from UK

The food was luxurious and delicious which is expected of an asian cuisine. Although the price was a little too much but understandable. The ambiance resonates the mood for
a good jazz band (which you can consider in the future). I would visit again if i feel for a fancy evening.

It's our first time at Hakkasan AD. Was just expecting a bit more to be honest. Nothing was terrible but just wasn't blown away by any of it. Not a patch on Zuma IMHO.

Great food, fast & efficient service, good value for a 5+ star dining. The furniture of the restaurant look old and some are falling apart. Scratches and dents and depreciation all around. Not fitting for a high-end dining experience.

There was a mix up with her birthday dessert but the staff made it work. We will be back.

A beautiful restaurant with exceptional food and an amazing bar. I loved the feeling of intimacy even though you could hear other guests that gave the restaurant a warm vibey feeling. The music choice was excellent as was the drinks selection. The bar was a unique experience because they have such a vast selection of affordable and top quality popular and rare brands. Highly recommended.

Our first time eating here and we were very impressed by the drinks, service, food and value for money. We had the tasting menu and were positively surprised how good it was. Definitely the best Chinese food we have had in Abu Dhabi.
