Squaremeal Review of Hakkasan Mayfair ?

Squaremeal London Hot 100 2016“What a place!” exclaims a fan of Hakkasan Mayfair – a Michelin-starred bolthole with “incredibly high expectations” and a certain measure of sleek, party-inspired grandeur to match its elevated Cantonese cuisine. Downstairs has the pulsating feel of bars in sister locations including Las Vegas and Shanghai (a DJ “brings the place alive in the evening”), while the ground-floor dining room functions as both high-end dim sum pit stop and convincing full-meal destination. The food is overseen by group chef Tong Chee Hwee, although some dishes are unique to this Bruton Street address: try the wok-fried pork belly in lychee sauce with plum and kumquat, Szechuan-style langoustines with eryngii mushrooms or grilled Rhug lamb cutlets dressed simply with soy, coriander and chilli. At lunchtime, superior high-spec dim sum might include scallop shu mai with tobiko caviar, crispy beancurd cheung fun or sesame toast with foie gras (what else?). When it comes to the sophisticated wine list, seek advice from the “excellent” sommelier. Overall, Hakkasan is guaranteed to “lift your spirits, no matter what time of day or night” – despite the 13.5 per cent service charge.

Former Group Wine List of the Year

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.

More night club than culinary experience...

by   (1)

Jan 2016

My wife and I have a monthly date night - usually at a starred restaurant but occasionally at places like this (which I was surprised to discover after the event did have a star). This is a very buzzy place - probably great with a crowd on a major jolly, where the food is a bit incidental, less good for a considered foodie experience. The food is good but not memorable: salt and pepper squid was below the quality of our local takeaway; duck salad was very good; main courses of king crab and black...

Editor's pick I had a wonderfull dinner at Hakkasan on Saturday. I arrived a bit early and enjoyed a drink at the bar and chit chat with other customers. Table was ready exactly at booked time, recommendations for food and wine were just spot on: dumblings, spicy srimps and crisp duck were really good. Service was attentive and swift and the bill quire reasonable. Atmosphere and noise level were just right for late night dinner. Quite perfect

Almost Perfect

Editor's pick I reviewed the Hanway Place restaurant a long time ago under the name SilverSurferS5. This is better in the sense of being more easily accessible, in a trendier location and looking more fancy outside than its predecessor. Apart from that, not much is different. Without a doubt this location attracts more stars but that does not matter to me or how much anyone is going to enjoy the food there. The food is pretty much the same; not a bad thing! I have been to this restaurant over 5 times...

Chinese gem

by   silver reviewer (27)

Editor's pick Went there for a celebratory dinner. Though very dark and quite noisy, the restaurant's ambience is excellent. The decor is elegant and comfortable, very stylish. Service a bit rushed, but attentive, polite and helpful. Food is excellent, absolutely delicious. We can highly recommend the melt-in-the-mouth seabass, soft shell crab, salt and pepper squid, and the duck rolls. Dim sum is OK but not brilliant (go to Yauatcha for that). Wonderful raspberry souffle for desert - a must! Bill for 2...

I went to Hakkasan with my Dad; we share a love of fine dining but his tastes are slightly more formal than mine always are. His favourite restaurant is Le Gavroche, which I adore but I was keen to try Hakkasan for the reason that I've heard it's quite the opposite – modern and buzzy. I wasn't disappointed. Hakkasan feels a bit more like a nightclub than a restaurant when you first enter – it's sleek, dimly lit and all dark wood and granite. We had a drink in the bar first which is beautifully set...

Going to Hakkasan is an experience, from beginning to end, and while not cheap, it is undoubtedly worth it. The sense of anticipation and occasion is heightened on arrival. While the exterior of the building is relatively nondescript, in an office block to the side of Berkeley Square, diners are forced to walk down a relatively long, delicately-scented black passageway lit only by small sparkling lights in order to reach the dining room. Even though this was my fourth time here (but the first in...

    angloyankophile :: angloyankophile: Birthday Dinner @ Hakkasan Mayfair

    Ok, Alan Yau. I get it. I take back all my former hesitations about selecting Hakkasan as my birthday dinner choice. You win. The food is utterly incredible. The atmosphere is ... meh ... but the food. Oh, the food. Can one even refer to it as food? I think it's deserving of a term that denotes a higher form of praise.

    Just last week, as I was walking past Les Trois Garcons on my way back from the launch party for Hair: Fashion and Fantasy, I looked inside and thought, maybe I should come here instead for dinner on my birthday, instead of Hakkasan Mayfair. Who needs pretentious Chinese food when you could...

    This week our friends Christa and Candy are over from Cape Town (all nicely alliterative) so we treated ourselves to dinner at Hakkasan. The first one of this now global restaurant brand was in Hanway Place behind the back of Tottenham Court Road Station and it opened in 2001. I remember going to try this new style of contemporary Cantonese Chinese food with great excitement.
