Square Meal Review of Hakkasan Mayfair ?

‘A hypnotic experience’ from start to finish, Hakkasan Mayfair is essentially a devil-may-care, home-from-home for high-rollers, oligarchs and ‘overly perfumed non-Londoners’ who come here to splash their cash in a sleek, moody-blue basement throbbing with cacophony. Not surprisingly, it’s sometimes accused of ‘overpriced snobbery’, but most people reckon this Michelin-starred Chinese is a ‘compelling treat’. The wondrous culinary approach refines familiar Chinese themes with dazzling flashes of originality: chicken is smoked with jasmine tea, crispy duck appears in a salad with pomelo, pine nuts and shallots, and there’s Duke of Berkshire pork in the old sweet and sour, with a dash of pomegranate, too. Elsewhere, dim sum is in a class of its own, the ‘indulgent’ silver cod with Chinese honey and Champagne sauce is a gentle nod to Japanese star Nobu, and ‘addictive’ desserts such as chocolate marquise with kumquats always raise a smile. Despite protests about ‘dull-witted staff’ and extortionate bills, Hakkasan still ‘matches the top giants of Hong Kong’ – high praise indeed!

Group Wine List of the Year 2013

Hakkasan Group’s wine lists share the same innovative overall structure, with wines separated by quirky categories, like ‘new classics: genius without a château’, or ‘blends: the art of the winemaker’. All have a superlative range of wines, with a heartening willingness to go off the beaten track, as well as reassure diners with a strong selection of Burgundy. An object lesson in professionalism and imagination.

  1. After all the talk of my friends telling me how amazing this place was, I finally, after about a year got around to going for my birthday dinner. Located at Bruton Street in Mayfair, I almost walked right past with very limited signage apart from one security guard to open the massive dark wooden door for you. We started the evening with abit of home away from home – a nice bottle of Hawkes Bay, New Zealand wine. The menu for both starters and mains seemed decent with plenty of variety. I was in my normal ‘indecisive’ mood but I had been informed about how amazing the Dim sum was so my first thought was to of course order the 8 piece selection for the starter. We also went for the Vegetarian option for comparison...

    Edible Travel :: Hakkasan…5/5

    It’s incredibly inconspicuous – on arrival the bouncers and clip board clad woman make you feel convinced that you’re about to join an expensive club queue but after looking at them a few times they said in hushed tones “Hakkasan?” and look at you quizzically to which I nodded uncontrollably and didn’t dare say another word in case anyone would notice us disappearing through the dark door and down the corridor to what looks like the most exclusive club on the prestigious Berkeley Square...

    Brunch etc. :: A romantic meal for two at Hakkasan

    The entrance is fashionably discreet: stepping through an unobstrusive doorway on elegant Bruton Street, you are waved past the bouncer down a short corridor to the reception desk, where you are greeted by a veritable swarm of pretty girls*, dressed to the nines in fuschia and black frocks (and causing the attire of the up-market clientele to look almost shabby in comparison**). Hakkasan - owned by Alan Yau of Wagamama fame - has a reputation as one of the best Chinese/dim sum eateries in London, and being a huge fan of his other restaurants (Yautcha, for fantastic dim sum, cocktails, pastries, and a stunning aquarium; Busaba Eathai for Thai food with a twist - great if your group is large enough to commandeer one of the large 'communal ' table; and of course Wagamamas - quick, cheap, and reliably good ) I was extremely excited to finally go there...
