Description: 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.

Wow! So good! We wanted to visit the palace and figured no better way than to have dinner along the way. We pick Hakkasan based on the reviews and we were so glad we did. We started with a drink - they have a terrific and creative menu. They were delicious! I had the BBQ Prawns for dinner and they are among the most memorable foods I've had in a while. Service was pretty good and the atmosphere was cool. It was a bit on the expensive side, but it was worth every cent. There are a lot of great places to eat in Abu Dhabi and I'd count this among the best!

Dined in this famous outlet in 2012 along with two friends. All people with hospitality background. The service and quality of food was one of the best experiences. Atmosphere is amazing, especially when sitting outside if climate permits. Special thanks to Aurelian for his great service. Also visited the bar many times and it was always a memorable experience.

Seriously good food. We really enjoyed all of our dishes at Hakkasan. The duck salad was a stand out, one of the best dishes we have ever eaten! Expense doesn't matter when the food is this good! Hakkasan is a stylish venue. The atmosphere was nothing remarkable, the restaurant was fairly quiet when we visited. There was no alcohol on offer as it was a religious holiday, so we can't make comment on the cocktails. The food was exception, we will be returning on our next visit to AD.

Hakkassan is on our regular list of must dos when we have visitors. Consistently good and one of the few restaurants in Abu Dhabi where you can guarantee there will be other groups and a level of atmosphere. Best seats are out on the Terrace. Cocktails are delicious. We actually find it good value for money if sharing dishes (compared to other restaurants in AD). Service is normally wonderful (although a little slow at our last visit but it was very busy). Our visitors always love it.
