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.

“Gorgeous Restaurant and Pashminas!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2012

We had a wonderful meal at Hakkasan recently on a visit to Abu Dhabi and Emirates Palace. Gorgeous restaurant with a beautiful terrace overlooking the Abu Dhabi skyline. Food was very good, especially the fried vegetarian appetizers - yummy! Why steam when you can fry! They were beautifully presented little morsels. The roast duck with Mango was very harmonious and delicious together. The sweet and sour chicken with pommegranate needed a little more depth of flavor, however. But the Hamour in black bean sauce served in a clay pot was beautifully cooked and flavorful. The lotus root and asparagus combo was right on target - crunchy yet tender vegetables. Best part: They gave the ladies pashminas to wear as the night was a bit chilly. Very gracious!

“Very upmarket...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2012

As with everything at the Emirates Palace, definitely over the top. A "must do" if the object is to impress! VERY pricey... Don't expect to come away without a significant bite being taken out of your wallet. Should be on the Abu Dhabi "bucket list".
