Hakkasan Hanway Place is the original Hakkasan restaurant. This Michelin starred Chinese restaurant was designed by the famed Christian Liaigre, the intricate wooden lattice screens, carved out of dark English oak, invite discerning guests for a unique dining experience with contemporary cuisine. The menu has a strong Chinese ethnic identity with an ethos of Cantonese cooking.
Hakkasan and Lucy Choi London are partnering in celebration of London Fashion Week 2019.
Lucy Choi has created the Hakkasan Collection, three limited edition shoes inspired by Hakkasan, including the Mayfair, a red stiletto, and the Hanway Place, a black flat decorated with an embroidered tiger symbolising power, ferocity and beauty.
To coincide with the launch, the Hakkasan Collection menu showcases signature dishes alongside an exclusive dessert served in a glossy black shoebox as well as a cocktail, the Choi Ling. The menu is available until Sunday 17th November.

Over priced and for the same money could easily have had a Michelin Star meal.
Found the fish courses to be quite dry and wine was expensive
Likely I won’t dine here again

Been to Hakkasan several times in the past. This was the first time the food felt like there was something amiss. The value is never outstanding, as it is rather pricey (especially for the quantity of food your money buys) but this was probably the first time the food wasn't outstanding

The food was ok but the service was poor with staff who made you feel like they were doing you a favour. The menu, and particularly the wine list, is over priced. Tables are too close together at the venue making it a noisy and cramped environment

Great food and great ambiance. However, I felt it was a bit challenging to be charged such a high amount for Dim Sum... I also failed to understand why the waitress was pushing us to leave her a tip as she advised me that the service charge was not a tip but her manager was contradicting her... a bit of transparency would be great... service was a bit slow...

Usually love this place and always come for special occasions. We were really disappointed this time the mains were cold no one asked how our meal was, when we finally found someone and told them they didn’t do anything about it. Service incredibly slow and hardly any staff. I expect better.

We had a booking at 9 o clock. When we came the table wasnt ready and we had to hang out in the bar for approximately 25 minutes before we were seated. Then we didnt receive the menues for additional 10 minutes or so. I had to ask the waiter three times before i got my drink and we didnt get water as requested. That said, the food was very good. The totally experience didnt live up to my expectations for a restaurant like Hakkasan.

An extremely busy restaurant where it is nearly impossible for the staff to make you feel special. In fact when I asked where our first order of drinks/cocktails had got to ( after a 35 minute wait...) I was told that about 300 other guests had all arrived pretty much at once. So from the start , we were told we were a small number in the scheme of things.
Things did get better and the food is pretty good but not outstanding and the whole experience is expensive and my overriding feeling in leaving was one of feeling a bit fleeced. I expected an expensive evening but expected first class service but it was not there.

Food is just ok but obviously expected more from a Michelin Star restaurant. No presentation and some plates were cold.
Service was one of the worst experiences we have ever had. Not clearing plates when we asked (twice). Trying to move us off the table ahead of our 2hr sitting. No hand towels in bathroom. Staff openly moaning about the “complaining customer” in toilets in front of other customers (of which 2 were part of my party).
Just not acceptable for a Michelin Star restaurant. It’s very hard to understand how they have held onto their Star after our experience.
Manager was apologetic which did help a little but it was too late after that many issues.

Hakkasan delivered on most accounts, though there is still room for improvement to ensure the experience really meets Michelin Star quality.
The food was of good quality. The waitress was very friendly and attentive.
Just needs that little bit extra to make it the complete experience, such as ambience and staffing to cover the tables.

I was quite disappointed with my main. The food was watery and lacked flavour. I complained as my partners had more flavour and was less watery. They bought me a new dish, however it seemed like the same dish just rewarmed and overly cooked duck. Very disappointed.

Food was great but the service poor bartender stopped making my drink to prioritise a loud American who was complaining. we arrived separately they tried to sit me on the wrong table I had to find my partner myself. Given the wrong menu as we have booked a TDH offer, had to ask for made to look like cheapskates even though we still spent nearly £100 for two starters two mains and 2 125ml house wine. Served by so many different people some couldn’t get order things and had to get others to help could get anyone to get soy etc it was disjointed. Very loud and packed in tables.

We always come to London and here for our wedding anniversary and it is usually very good. Arrived here on thursday and table wasn’t ready. Told to take a seat at bar but no seats available. Shown to our table after 10/15 mins which was in the middle of the room and right in front of the dj booth. Service slow. Starters came and dim sum gorgeous, salt and pepper squid non eventful. Took a little while for mains to arrive, one dish completely missing and one wrong so asked them to change it to what we asked for. One dish never arrived at all and the dish we originally ordered came over 20 mins later when rice and noodles all cold. At £50 a dish we sent it back as was nothing to enjoy it with. Then asked for the bill as dj had started and big group of girls next to us made the experience even less fantastic. No water was pored for us or replenished when empty, we had to ask for more, which on previous visits would be unheard of. So all in all a very disappointing anniversary dinner let down by mistakes and poor service, along with an inappropriate table. We will return next year and give it another go as hopefully this will just be a blip.

I went for my 21st birthday and their service was delightful. First time attending and I would surely recommend and go again myself. Just as long as you have your money right, it’s worth its price

We were expecting a high level of service but was quite disappointed. The waiters were not as attentive and had to be reminded of our order, for example. The non alcoholic cocktail was deceptive as it contained an awful amount of ice cubes. It was very poor value for the £8 we paid.

I was excited to go to Hakkasan in London as I had been in Las Vegas and had the most amazing time! It was for a special occasion for my cousin’s wedding. I was impressed at the service as we wasn’t keen on our original table so they we’re happy to assist us and move us to a bigger table. That was a nice touch as I wanted my cousin to be comfortable where we sat. Food was exceptional and was so grateful it was just as I had remembered in Las Vegas. Also I asked for a special request for them to write ‘Congratulations’ on one of the plates. They had already prepared this-I was impressed they had remembered! Thank you so much for making it special and a great memory for us!

Sunday afternoon it’s dead, people in trainers against dress code and it just didn’t feel special dislike the £150.

Delicious food, but overpriced and found the restaurant overall a little pretentious. We were there for a birthday celebration, but our experience didn’t feel special as the restaurant was packed and therefore service was not particularly attentive. Had to wait half an hour at the bar for our booked table. Overall a slightly disappointing evening.

Our main courses had not arrived 30 minutes after we had finished our starters. The second time I asked the waitress when our mains would be ready her tone was one of frustration. We consequently had to cancel our meal as we had an event to. The manager was apologetic and professional and did not charge us for the starters or drinks. Nevertheless, this is unacceptable for a Michelin star restaurant and very disappointing for Hakkasan original establishment.

Delicious food, good options for someone on a gluten free diet. I would expect to have my coat taken and put in a cloakroom and we had to order drinks several times over before they finally arrived at our table, having chased them up with 2 different waiters. A really nice overall experience, with the kitchen providing a lovely birthday dessert - very happy apart from the two negatives above.
