We have been to Hakkasan in Las Vegas and Miami and its usually a must for us if we are in a city where it is. If you are craving top-shelf Chinese this is where to go. I am insane for the truffle duck and also the veggie dish with pea pods and cloud ears. We watched a waitress prepare... More

Simply perfect! Asia flavors, sophisticated cuisine, great attention to the client and impeccable service. We felt welcome and will return. I recommend the duck salad with pomelo, Hakkasan dim sum and the signature saffron dessert with orange flower water ice cream! Yum!

What a beautiful venue. This restaurant is located in the Emirates Palace and has fantastic views when dining on the terrace. My husband and I were welcomed and taken to the bar before dining. We then were taken to the terrace to dine and loved the service, food, drinks and the views. We have been to a few Hakkasan locations... More

Every single time when I'm in AD, this restaurant is in my schedule. Remembering my first time there- my first thought was that this is the most perfect interior ever! Dark, dark wood, discrete lighting, asian stile private dining rooms and best bar ever! When comes to food never but never let yourself to skip dim sum, it's just perfect!

Great view from outside dining area ,outstanding service and very good food .The only negative aspect the loud disco music , not what you are expecting in such a relaxing atmosphere.Also the cocktail area deserves a visit . Pricey but highly recommended.

The first thing you'll notice before even getting near this restaurant is Emirates Palace, an absolutely stunning building! If it's possible due to the weather I would suggest an outside table to soak in the beautiful sights. The food here, while pricey is simply delicious and well worth it, I definitely recommend the spicy duck. Service is fantastic and they... More

We have eaten in three Hakkasan restaurants (the two in London and this one, in the Emirates Palace hotel). All three have a similar decor, namely an uber-cool long bar serving fabulous Gin and Tonics - or whatever tickles your fancy - and classy dining area. This one has an added bonus, namely a fabulous outside dining area with stunning... 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.
