The Emirates Palace where the restaurant is one of the most prime hotels in the UAE!! The food here is absolutely superb & there is plenty for vegetarians to look for!! A visit here is a must for the food as well as to see the Emirate Palace & its magnificent architecture & the man made beach!!

Consistently good. Cocktails, starters & mains. The claypot chicken was not as good as the Aubergine & beancurd & a shame that the crab fried rice has gone. Excellent service though. Good for a special Occaison

We have been to Hakkasan in Dubai and this one before, so we hoped it would be as good as we remembered as we only come once a year when on holiday. We had a sharing dim sum platter for starter which was divine and the next level up from the usual sui mai and har gau etc. We then... More

This was the first time to Hakkasan in Abu Dhabi and the food is just as good, if not better than dare I say Hakkasan in London which we go to every month. Whilst it's not cheap, the food is amazing and if you're looking for somewhere different to eat whilst in Abu Dhabi I recommend here.

My wife loves dining here. I personally think it needs to do better based upon my last two visits. However, to be fair one also has to take account of and responsibility for what one orders! Service can be patchy but, good in the main.

This was a small celebration for four. We chose to eat outdoors, which was lovely. We were warmly greeted and had a very good table. We chose a variety of starters, including the delicious steamed dim sum platter and the duck rolls. For mains we particularly enjoyed the charcoal grilled cod and the stir-fry black pepper beef. These were good... More

Hakkasan is located inside the Emirates Palace facility and they serve Cantonese cousin. I cannot remember a Chinese dinner that good. If you are not a connoisseur i suggest the tasting menu. Very good value for money even if it is on the high side, but i guarantee you have never had Chinese food in this way. Very cozy atmosphere... More

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.
