    It really is a bit too noisy, and they play club music pretty much all the way from lunch to dinner. They have a good selection of tea, my parents are also quite happy with the food, but the music just wasn't allow them to enjoy the meal very much. I must say, it's a very hip and fun ambiance for younger diners, but not recommended if you are trying to enjoy a conversation, it really is too loud, and too dark for my parents or older diners to even read the menu.

    My wife and I and daughter went as we had been told by a friend that the food was good and convenient to theaters. Unfortunately, only the proximity was true. When we arrived three different people came to our table and asked if anyone had a food allergy, three times seemed like servers were not on the same page. The place is huge and somewhat cold with New Age music being pumped throughout. Seemed odd to us for a Chinese restaurant. The dim sum was good, not great. Peking duck also just ok and sea bass excellent. The real issue we had was the price. We could have gone to a french or good italian place at the sme cost. What ever happened to the concept that Chinese food should be affordabl? This place not a Budahkan. Same some $$ go Hurleys

    If you desire fine Asian food Hakkasan is a consistently great place. If you are looking for a great place to eat in NY's theater district, look no further. Great food and service in a lovely venue. Our Chilean sea bass dish with Chinese honey was outstanding and the banana pearl pudding we had for dessert was one of the finest desserts we've had this year.

    Thursday night dinner. Bar very quiet what was somewhat surprising. Quick service and good food. Sharing is caring and some nice dishes. Relatively dark, but noise level moderate and secluded tables. I believe the place is loosing some of the buzz it had before and is quieter now. It remains a good place for business or romantic dinners. Still too pricey for what you get, but that is NYC......

    We hoped we had found a new option for pre-theater dining, but Hakkasan, which opened in April. proved a disappointment. For an expensive upscale Chinese restaurant, the food should have been distinguished, but the chicken and corn soup was lacking in flavor and overly thickened, and although the Hakka noodles were flavorful, they were lukewarm. The crispy chicken with mango sauce arrived some 15 minutes after my companion's main dish, and when it did, it was cold. With no waiter in sight, there was no way to send it back to be reheated. On the plus side, when we mentioned these issues as we were getting ready to leave, the management took the chicken and drinks off our check without our asking for any consideration.

    I'm surprised by how expensive this place is, considering the three main ingredients: msg, sugar and salt used in every dish are realitively inexpensive. Maybe since they use so much of it they have to drive up their prices. I can finally see again after a ranging migraine, which I'm certain is from the food at Hakassan. I will never eat there again.

Our waiter got our food out so quickly and we had extra time to make our show afterwards. We can't wait to go back

    9:30pm reservation, no table for me even at 10:30pm. Another lady at the bar had a 9pm reservation,got there by 8:30pm and finally got her table at 10:30pm. I had ordered vegetable steamed dumplings and Onion fried rice. Halfway through the dumplings, I bit into something stone hard and came up with something like a stone. I showed it to the waitress and she went looking for a manager. Half an hour later, a manager apologizes and offers to comp the dumplings & a drink I had ordered. It was supposedly part of the dishware used to make the dumplings. Definitely not something I expect from a restaurant like Hakkasan. Also being a vegetarian, anything weird that comes up in my food tends to leave a bad experience.

    This place gets great reviews, but I was really disappointed. Very cool ambiance, but the food was lukewarm, rubbery and not interesting. I've lived in China for 9 years, so I know a bit about Chinese food. The server was chirpy and nice, but came by too many times and each time completely interrupted our conversation to say "Wo how is everything?". This place is VERY expensive, so I was surprised by the low level of food quality and service. Won't be going back.

    We came in 15 Min. early. It seems to be the policy to let the people wait to take a drink at the bar, even they have many tables ready. The service is professionell but not very friendly and the following of the courses are quick. Food is excellent, good wineselection but a little too expensive.

    I'm guessing we had a fairly new waiter. We were given the wrong cocktails, one of our 2 appetizers was forgotten about & one of our entrees was incorrect, too! Even so, everything was fixed quickly & professionally and our food and drinks were excellent. We're willing to chalk the service glitches up to an off night. We'll definitely be back.

    This is my third time at Hakkasan since they opened a couple of years ago. The first time we visited the experience wasn't great and felt it wasn't worth the price. The last visit however seemed to change that opinion. Everything we ordered was absolutely delicious. Maybe wee ordered better as well but everyone really enjoyed every bit of it. Our server was also extremely helpful and friendly which definitely helped.

    1st October was the 65th anniversary of the Founding of the People's Republic of China and Hakkasan organized a special celebratory dinner, beginning with excellent dim sum and Peking Duck pancakes through a variety of main entrees and ending with hot steamed dumplings with chocolate sauce and ginger tea. The meal ended with a gift of chocolate-coated macaroons with gold-dust topping. At US$138 the meal would not have been for everyone, but it was absolutely top quality and well worth the cost. We understand that all of the restaurants Hakkasan has around the world were serving this same menu for a two-week period. It was quite magical.

    Excellent food, which is served as it's ready, not in standard course order, and meant to be shared. Perfect service--our server reminded US that we might want the check to make the theater in time! Food is somewhat familiar but never exactly what you've had before--top notch ingredients prepared thoughtfully. I can't wait to go back!
