Changed our table due to a bright light, when one of our party asked about wheat free food a course of dim sums arrived just for him and the main course came with a gluten free option, nothing seemed to much trouble for the staff and the service was excellent.

We booked the restaurant for a group of 12 in November and all would agree that it was a great night, food service and atmosphere all were spot on. Some the dishes chosen were just spectacular, particularly the duck starters and Silver Cod main course. A great spot for a special night out.

Order Peking Duck as we did and request replacement if it's not perfect (as we did). The second one was perfect as the apetizers, wine... Adding realy high price we came to 4 stars only rating, but I'll go again if I'll stay there!

This place is fantastic if you like decent tunes with your high-end Chinese food. Superb wine list and lovely service. The food is just as good. The location makes it special. My only quibble is the Peking duck is not quite 'real' Peking duck. But who cares if the pancakes can be rolled for you? Marvelous terrace also. Pricey but... More

First of all I asked when I made the reservation to have a nice table for a birthday celebration. They gave us the worst table (entrance to the kitchen). Some of the dishes we ordered were very good but some far away from expectations. The Haka steamed dim sum plater is excelent. The Pekin duck is OK but the price... More

This is a great restaurant with some caveats. We had the Peking duck which was quite good but not overwhelming as we have had similar cuisine at other places. However the lotus root with asparagus was outstanding as was the tofu and mushrooms. We finished with a baked yogurt and pineapple sorbet and saffron date for dessert, quite nice. The... More

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 restaurant is headed by chef Lee Kok Hua, who was previously at Hakkasan Hanway Place where he worked under Head Chef Tong Chee Hwee for five years.
