Hakkasan New York
A great special occasion choiceWent here after my graduation at Radio City music hall. Due to the prices, this place would only be picked on special occasion and it was so worth it! The dumplings were superb, the cay pot dishes were creamy and tasty and the dessert, especially black sesame was out of this world. Would definitely recommend! Oh and of course, the drinks selection were great. I had one of their speciality drinks which tasted great, but was a little weak. I would still recommend trying the creative cocktails tho!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWent for brunch and was pleasentlyWent for brunch and was pleasently surprised! Menus was 39 dollars and was great!!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best!Went to Hakkasan in London, same great food here but much better ambient and music!
A must go!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAn Unforgettable ExperienceI enjoyed my brunch experience at Hakkasan,. Everything from restaurant décor to food to service truly lives up to its Michelin star. There is not one bad item in the menu that we ordered. I will highly recommend it to anyone I know who is visiting NYC. Perfect for special occasions. I booked the brunch as part of my birthday gift to my niece, which also included watching the musical Wicked. I am sure she had a birthday gift she will never forget.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent in all aspectsI've been twice to Hakkasan now and I have nothing else to say but: "almost perfect"... The chef is the Robuchon of Chinese food! Creative, different, quality ingredients and so good! A pleasure for the eyes and the palate! The decor and ambiance are top notch. A couple of nights ago we had the steamed dim sum platter... sooo tasty... their jamine tea leaf smoked ribs... unbelievably good. For entrees, we had the spicy prawn entree... five star... and their Wok-Fry Duck Breast with tangerine peel, which is the only reason why this review is a 4 stars not five. It was good, but not mind blowing! Overall this place is great in all aspects, I will go back when I want a special time.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food&service are amazingI been here couple times, I always have a great time. They signature dumplings is wow, and the duck too.
I try to go there once a month!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ambiance off Times Square.You can't go wrong with great Chinese food served in super cool setting...well priced....consistent and good value in a place where many restaurants can disappoint...5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMNice place with good service.The restaurant is lovely and not too loud, and the service was very good. We are vegetarians and there was no shortage of offerings. The dumplings and vegetarian chicken dish were particularly delicious. It was great that it was not loud so we could hear each other speak.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMNeed more professional waitressWaitress should be better trained to give recommendations. When I asked her how was the duck dish with the tangerine peel cooked, the response was " I don't know and I don't eat duck". I continued to ask her if the duck dish have a sweet flavor or is it salty. Her response was "all Chinese food are salty"'. Inappropriate responses took points off my rating for Hakkasan.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMHakassan is INCREDIBLE!! aHakassan is INCREDIBLE!! a wonderful and chic dining experience. I've now been to both Miami and NYC Hakassan's are both are equally as fantastic.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent!!! Great food, fantasticExcellent!!! Great food, fantastic service and beautiful decor. Can't wait to return.
Fabulous dining experience.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMI was immediately impressedI was immediately impressed with the ambiance of the restaurant; love the decor. I was afraid the tasting/pre-fixe menu would be small and I don't like macaroons. So I ordered the hot & sour soup with chicken and my entree was the green tea smoked chicken along with an order of bok choy (obviously for 2 to share). I ate everything and it was delicious!! Obviously no room for dessert. I did order jasmine tea (the pot was for 2 people). It all added up to an expensive lunch (& I didn't order a drink), but I decided I was treating myself. Chatting later with a few women in the lovely ladies room, they said their pre-fixe lunch was delicious and plenty to eat and the drinks were fabulous.
Definitely returning, but for the pre-fixe dinner4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMHakkasan is an elegant andHakkasan is an elegant and superb dining experience; highly recommend for every occasion.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMhighly recommendable!We had a great time.very efficient and rapid service. Unbelievably good food. Great ambiance. We'll be back and bring more people!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMCreative (but never weird)Creative (but never weird) modern Chinese cuisine. Striking decor. The signature cocktails were innovative and delicious.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMHakkasan is ExceptionalExpensive, but exceptional Chinese food. Not for "the egg roll crowd" or "Bridge & Tunnel" tourists who are better served by going to Shun Lee West. This is an over-the-top circus of interesting food for people who appreciate really creative, exceptionally prepared food. The bar makes some of the most outstanding cocktails anywhere. Try the Smoky Negroni or the Hakka. By 9pm - 10pm the place is rocking. The service is sexy, attentive, and well informed. Dinner for two is easily $200 to $350 depending on your selections. It could be a lot more too. Worth it? Yes. All the time? No. But who cares.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently excellent, HakkasanConsistently excellent, Hakkasan doesn't rely on its hype, it keeps delivering.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMBest, most authentic, andBest, most authentic, and finest Chinese food in New York4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding everything isOutstanding everything is almost perfect. You pay what you get for.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb Peking DuckThe decor was exciting. The service was excellent and attentive. I have food allergies and even when my very exotuc cocktail was mistakenly made by the bar tender the waitress caught it in time. Best of all, the Peking duck, which was what we came for, was simply superb and just the best we have ever eaten anywhere.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is as beautiful asThe food is as beautiful as the ambience! Love that place!!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI've been three times overI've been three times over the past month and it's among the best food (chinese or otherwise). The Bartenders are extremely knowledgeable and they can mix a serious cocktail. The Smoked Negroni is worth a trip to the bar for the show. The wait staff is helpful and gracious. Wonderful.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service and food. IGreat service and food. I little loud for me but very vibrant environment.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious and trendy. VeryDelicious and trendy. Very cool vibe. Very inconvenient for those commuting via Port Authority (actually why we chose it). Everything was great, but it is pricey.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, this place is fullAs always, this place is full of energy and vibrancy. The lively bar scene, the good selection of cocktails/wines, the just-right service manner, the well prepared and flavorful Chinese food, all makes Hakkasan my most favorite niche Chinese restaurant in NYC. As a Chinese food critic, I find the fusion here being very delicious; unlike most fusions which are for the looks/feel and not the taste.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I have been thereMy wife and I have been there and done that. But we were shocked. This was a great restaurant with superb food and outstanding service. We took the time to personally thank the manager. I have not done that in years.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best Chinese restaurantsOne of the best Chinese restaurants we have been to in years. Fantastic ambiance and superb food. Great service as well. This restaurant has a Michelin Star and it is well deserved.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMa jaded New YorkerGreat Ambiance and design, we had a Saturday 6 pm reservation, to our surprise the restaurant was not full when we left at 8:00 pm,
Steamed and fried Dim-sum were great, the soft-shell crabs where outstanding, so where the curried shrimp, the steamed redsnapper was a flop, no distinction
The side dish of tiny Bok Choy with garlic was superb
we were not offered the Pre-Theater menu which is on the website, had to asked for it
Would come back anytime, will try Sunday Brunch or weekday Lunch next time4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat location close to timesGreat location close to times square. Decor and ambiance is great; it has a trendy busy vibe but you can still have a quiet conversation at your table. Bar area is a must see even if you don't dine, great cocktails. Food is very good and the staff are very knowledgeable and make great recommendations. All in all a great night. Would recommend to anyone visiting New York.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, vibrant scene.Great food, vibrant scene. Food a little pricey... Duck salad was great and as the Chilean Sea Bass. Will definitely go again.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFabFab food. Took our 14 yr old with us - maybe not his scene really, will be in another 6 yrs! A tad noisy but it's a clubby kind of joint.

Great for people watching!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMI went to Hakkasan beforeI went to Hakkasan before a show. It is located in the theater district and a walk to any theater. Very upscale. Beautiful decor. Outstanding food and service. Portions are on the small side. Main courses are more like appetizer size. On the pricey side, but good for a special occasion.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAn elegant, cool and classyAn elegant, cool and classy place. Contemporary Asian food, amazing.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother great experience atAnother great experience at Hakkasan! Food and service are always outstanding. Definitely the best Chinese in NYC.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMIf I could dream up a secretIf I could dream up a secret spot in the heart of the city for delicious luxurious Chinese food, this might be the spot I had envisioned. Though we went for a quick Dim Sum visit, we cannot wait to return for dinner to appreciate the entirety of the menu. The space has a beautiful Carrera marble architectural entrance and creative cuttings in marble and wood create the illusion of both privacy, intimacy and appreciation for the spectable that can be fine dining. From our table we could spy into the kitchen where dishes were meticulously prepared. It is a treat for all senses.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMDefinitely great for lunch/businessDefinitely great for lunch/business lunch as it is quiet.For the evening, better be with a group as it is loud and vibrant.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMOur server guided us withOur server guided us with selections for 2 children and 2 adults.
All his recommendations were spot on.
The crispy duck roll, the jasmine tea smoked chicken, crispy fish fried rice were all favorites.
For some reason, this Chinese restaurant had macarons for dessert? But they were wonderful.
The atmosphere was inviting, but the temperature was chilly. We asked to be moved to a table that was less drafty.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMOnline reviews seem to beOnline reviews seem to be mixed -comparing this unfavourably with London or with other more 'authentic' Chinese restaurants in NYC, but to my mind missing the point of this excellent restaurant.
Go there with an open mind. The food is Chinese with a very well executed and imaginative spin. Easily as deserving of its Michelin Star as the London original. I had the Sunday Brunch menu (incredible value for money) and the experience was so good I went back the next day for Lunch.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAs good as Chinese food can get.A very welcome addition to the NY dining scene!!! Maybe the best dumplings I've ever had. Note, portions are small, and prices are high, so expect to pay accordingly.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMMust go listBest Chinese style food I've had in a long while.
