I've been to Hakkasan a couple of times and the only thing that has been consistent is their "inconsistency". Everytime i visit, the same dish has tasted a bit different. I always order two specific items from the menu - the bean curd curry and the veg shanghai dumplings.

This time around when i visited, the food was good, but i had liked it much better the last time and hence insisted to get my friend along there too....We ordered the Shanghai dumpling which was not as crispy and juicy as the last time (4 months before). Similar for the bean curd gravy dish. I remember it being quite crisp but this time around, in all honesty, it was quite oily and had gotten a bit weirdly soft/soggy-ish by the time it came to our table.

This experience was not that great.

Food was delicious wish the quantity was more per dish.lighting is inadequate.staff are in a hurry but helpful.
Would come back regularly if quantities are increased for the price...otherwise on occasions only.
Staff seems in a hurry overworked??but polite.

Excellent food. Service very friendly, when available, but we often had no attention which was annoying.
We booked non smoking and were seated very close to the bar, which was ok on arrival as we were early and the bar empty. As the evening progressed the bar became busy and the smoke a nuisance. It did not go well done with our guest and bothered me.

This is the temple for refined Chinese cuisine!
It's global trademark won't be suffering a downgrade on account of this outlet, on the contrary signature dishes exclusive to this setting include the Orange flavor macadamia nuts tiger prawns which would score highest on any other top class establishment
Glad to have had the opportunity to get here cause it's worth every bit of the experience

This restaurant was one of the worst restaurants I have ever visited. It was my dads birthday. I EXPECTED a cake but what I got was a cheap dessert. The food was horrible, considering the abnormal costs. The atmosphere was not good. I have asthama and there were smokers sitting next to us. The wort part is that we cannot even takeaway any left over food. This type of restaurant is called " small portion, big price"

I went to Hakkasan on a Tuesday evening. It wasn't too busy, which was great. The food was outstanding and the service fast! The ambience is cosy, dimly lit with a nice, tasteful decor. Only down side was the noise in the restaurant. Two large and loud groups not to far from eachother and near where I was sitting made it a tad bit annoying. Overall, a nice experience.

Excellent ambience and small plate offerings on the menu. Awesome service! The food was very well prepared and the presentations were wonderful! The only minor suggestion is as follows: the wait staff is so attentive that I felt a bit overwhelmed that I was being watched throughout my meal. I little more privacy would be desirable. Thanks much!

My husband and I are regulars at Hakkasan London (Hanway Place) and also have been to Hakkasan in Abu Dhabi. So when we were on holiday in Dubai it made sense to go and try out our well-loved restaurant.

I was shocked at the difference in terms of service and wait-time. We went for the Friday Brunch and before I had even arrived I had had several calls from the restaurant, firstly saying that it was going to be a 'dry' brunch and then later saying it was not going to be a 'dry' brunch. This gave me the impression that they were a little disorganised.

On arrival, there were not a lot of people there, and when we went to help ourselves to the duck starter, we found out that they had run out of pancakes. We then waited 15 minutes for this to be sorted whilst the chef and the wait-staff 'flapped around' not appearing to have a clue what was going on...

We then waited a further 15 minutes for our dim sum and then a subsequent 50 minutes before our second sitting of dim sum. Again, I stress there were hardly any people in the restaurant. There was no real communication, apart from 'it's coming, it's coming' when it most certainly was not 'coming.' The chef as an 'apology' (when the 4 dim sum we had ordered finally arrived) sent out some extra fried squid - which we did not want and had not asked for.

To top this all off when we asked for the bill, my husband quite clearly asked for the money to be taken off his card in Dirhams - the waiter proceeded to take it off in Euros (despite checking with us twice what currency we wanted). This meant that we have had a 10 Euro hit for currency exchange - which in the grand scheme of things is nothing, but after what was meant to be a nice pleasurable experience (as it is normally in all their restaurants) - I couldn't help wishing we went to Din Tai Fung instead!

My bf and I were on holiday in Dubai and we thought why not have Chinese one night @ hakassan before returning back to the U.K.

We both have been to the two Hakkasan in London and New York. Authentic Cantonese food and excellent service.

If we ever return back to Dubai which I’m sure we will, we will definitely come back to hakassan again!

Eating at Halkasan was a dream come true. On my first visit to Dubai, I made this reservation nearly a month ago from India in OpenTable. Despite getting lost to find this restaurant, everyone from the hostess to the servers were kind and welcoming. I ordered the steamed dim sum platter that was better than any dim sum I have eaten in New York City. While waiting for the food to arrive, the server gave me Peking duck with scallions in a pancake. After I enjoyed the dim sum, I had the crispy duck rolls. The server then asked me to help myself from the dessert bar. This was the golden finish to a memorable meal with impeccable service and lovely music.

The dim sum platters are great and a must try, however compared to the appetizers Hakkasan's poultry main courses were not as unique as one would expect. The cocktails are great, also had the chance to try their espresso and cappuccinos which were excellent. However their homemade ice cream was okay, nothing outstanding.
