Hakkasan has been one of my all time favorites for many years so I was excited to see what was on offer when I was invited for the soft launch last week. Despite the concept being nearly a decade old as soon as we were greeted at the door that familiar warm feeling crept in along with the beautiful scent that regulars will recognize. True to form I had a fantastic experience – From the gorgeous and attentive supermodelesque waitresses to the familiar feel of the decor it was exactly like the original – perhaps it should be labeled “now with an extra 25%!”.
The food was a delicious as ever – the baby new Zealand lobster tails were awesome – huge portions that made me hope that if they were the babies that please don't let daddy lobster be looking for me. Peking duck stir fry elicited moans of pleasure from my dining companion and the Chilean sea bass with Chinese honey was divine. Dessert (chocolate soufflé) were some of the best I've had. As a regular at the original I was surprised how the whole occasion felt so new and refreshing. Prices are steep however and it is going to be a venue for a treat but I have no doubt that both Hakkasan Mayfair and Hanway Place are going to be packed to the rafters for the next decade as well.
