Square Meal Review of HKK ?

The Hakkasan group’s first foray into the City (Chrysan) may have ended prematurely, but HKK looks as if it’s here to stay – with a Michelin star now under its belt. The serene dining room is done out in ‘subdued’ grey, brown and cream tones, allowing diners to focus on the food devised by Hakkasan’s executive chef Tong Chee Hwee. Come here in the evening, and you’re obliged to have the full 15-course tasting menu unless you’re in a large group, but portions are bite-sized and service is swift. Highlights include an intense poulet de Bresse puff, deep-fried Australian green abalone in ‘royal’ sauce, lobster in black truffle sauce with mooli cake and the show-stopping Peking duck (roasted over cherry wood). Lunchtime visitors have much more choice and flexibility – not to mention a less ‘staggering’ bill. ‘Impeccable’ service and thoughtful wine flights complete one of the most seductive packages in the City.

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. Hakkasan is now a mini global empire of glitzy fine dining Chinese restaurants and lounges, but it all started with just one restaurant, the original Hakkasan in Hanway Place, off Oxford street. When it opened in 2001, a “glamorous night out” and “going for a Chinese” were concepts with little or no overlap but, overnight, Hakkasan changed the perception of Chinese restaurants in London and the UK. Offering lavishly designed, glitzy interiors, a cool lounge bar, and soon-to-be Michelin starred high end Chinese food, it attracted both foodies and fashionistas, rapidly becoming one of the venues of choice to impress a date (just as Hugh Grant did there in the film “About a Boy”,) With such a winning formula, it was no surprise that another London restaurant was opened in Mayfair, with further openings around the world in New York, Mumbai, Dubai, Shanghai etc...

    vialaporte :: HKK* // Shoreditch // London

    HKK shows what Chinese fine dining can be; it’s as simple as that. Although it’s clearly been created for City entertaining, don’t let that put you off if you’re intrigued to go there for a meal with friends. Expectations are perfectly set at a *1 star level, from the welcome, to the apéritifs, to the subtle yet chic decor – and of course the cuisine. If you want the best out of your experience, you should go for one of the many set menus. Even someone used to ordering Chinese food will find it difficult to recreate HKK’s sumptuous offer from the à la carte menu. Also, rather than have wine with your meal, perhaps opt for a fine white tea to cut through the rich elements of the meal without giving you the distinct flavour of wine...

    FoodiesOnTheProwl FoodiesOnTheProwl :: HKK London, Dec 2013

    I’ve always been sceptical of the idea of Chinese fine dining…until I set foot in HKK. The food is divine, the attention to detail mesmerising and the service spot on. My current favourite place to have elaborate and lush weekend Chinese lunch (although I still like Yauatcha and Hutong a lot)...

    Samphire and Salsify :: HKK

    HKK is a fine dining Chinese restaurant which specialises in seasonal tasting menus and it’s owned by the Hakkasan group – they own Hakkasan, Sake no Hana and Yauatcha. It’s based in a quiet part of Shoreditch – on our Saturday evening visit there was not a soul to be seen and you’d easily walk past it as it looks like an office block. Inside however was a beautiful and serene space which was every bit as elegant as you might wish for...

    Tiki Chris :: HKK’s Exquisite Five Course Duck Lunch

    There’s not a whole lot I can write about my recent visit to HKK for a taste of its five course duck lunch menu without my review coming across as one big gloat about how much I enjoyed it. Besides, so much of what I loved about the experience was getting to sit back and allow Chef Tong Chee Hwee, sommelier Miguel Hernandez and all the cordial HKK staff encountered to provide their deliberate best to ensure I had an exquisite meal. The months old HKK is a brilliant extension of the Hakkasan brand and welcome addition to another rather desolate stretch of ambiguous hinterland straddling the professional City and hipster Shoreditch...

    Fd Over LDN :: HKK

    First things up, the decor. This was a key component of the experience at the other venues, particularly at Hanway Place, still I think the most fantastic use of space (it used to be an underground warehouse) in London. HKK is certainly more subdued and more professional. The target audience seems to be high powered local business types. Personally, I would say that the food is more the focus of the attention here than at the other branches...

  7. I MUST share with you the culinary wonder that is HKK restaurant, the new East London outpost of the Hakkasan Ltd. group in Broadgate West, near Bishopsgate. We went for the 15- courses tasting menu (there is also an 8-courses option); if £95 is not exactly cheap (it certainly isn’t for me), it is still a bargain compared to the a’ la carte prices and for the quality and quantity of food, the offering at HKK restaurant it didn’t feel extortionate...

  8. Hakkasan was one of the restaurants that helped foster the idea that Chinese food in London wasn’t just greasy take away fare. HKK is a new City spin-off of the Soho original, but with an emphasis on expensive tasting menus that befits its location in the shadow of capitalism’s gleaming towers. If you’re expecting the handsome dark woods and aromatic scents of Alan Yau’s other restaurants, then HKK’s surprisingly plain, understated decor will be a disappointment. The generally generic grey glossy gleam is designed to avoid offending the homogenous, monochrome, easily startled suits that prowl the nearby streets. The only real hint of character is the usual flower bulb-shaped ceiling fixtures in the centre of the room...

  9. Bespoke Cantonese fine dining from the Hakkasan Group” is the claim from HKK, the second Hakkasan venture to open in The City this year. Does it deliver? Most definitely!
