About Hakkasan Hanway Place

SquareMeal Review

Gold Award
“Wow, wow and wow!” exclaims a fan of Hakkasan, who reckons it’s definitely the “sexiest restaurant” he’s ever frequented. Certainly, there’s a “sultry charm” to this “sensual”, barely lit basement, with clubby VIP vibes, easy-on-the-eye staff and black-lacquered interiors making it “perfect for a hot date”. Kick off with Asian-inspired cocktails at the bar, then try definitive versions of takeaway classics and “impressive” ‘small eats’ such as jasmine tea-smoked ribs or “amazingly light” Shanghai dumplings boosted by chilli and vinegar. To follow, readers rave about the gigantic spicy prawns with asparagus, almonds, lily bulbs, spring onion and water chestnuts (“a riot of colourful tastes and textures”), but we’re hooked on the salt and pepper squid, the duck braised with truffle and the “riveting” crispy lamb salad with peanut dressing. No one escapes the top-end pricing, but readers agree that “you pay for what you get”. Multiple tasting menus can keep the bills in check, although the ambitious wine list might push them back up again. Either way, it’s “absolutely outstanding”.

Once we’d become accustomed to the darkness of the dining room, it was possible to discern the care with which it has been laid out and decorated to hint cleverly at the style of cuisine and to make diners feel comfortable from every point of view. The front of house staff, surprisingly all non-Asian, were very professional and constantly on hand when needed. The Taste of Hakkasan menu looked very good value and we started with one of their special house cocktails, a concoction comprising Belvedere vodka, Akashi-tai sake, lychee juice, lime, coconut and passion fruit which were mixed so as to produce a marvellously creamy, fruity introduction to the meal. The “small eats” to start were an impressive crispy pomelo spiced duck salad with pine nuts and shallots, and amazingly light chicken and prawn dumplings boosted but not overwhelmed by chilli and vinegar. We both chose the spicy prawn main, which was a colourful riot of tastes to accompany the gigantic curried prawns, including asparagus, almonds, lily bulbs, spring onion, and water chestnut - a beautifully and cleverly designed combination of textures as well. Our dessert was a perfect light variation on lemon tart with a sablé base for the sesame meringue, fresh lemon sorbet, white and black sesame seeds, candied lemon and white chocolate disks - a great way to end the meal. Altogether a very satisfyingly unpretentious and high quality dining experience.

Absolutely outstanding. Excellent in every field, food, service, ambiance. It was also my husbands birthday and the staff were very complimentary.

I fancied something different from the usual Sunday brunch, coupled with a craving for Dim Sum and it seems Hakkasan had the answer! Their set menu for £58 per head includes a pre meal cocktail, a bottle of Louis Roederer to share and a post meal cocktail, as well as 6 courses. We were utterly defeated by the food, to the point that I opted to forgo dessert. At which they promptly returned with 3 handmade macaroons for me to take with me. The food is delicious, the only complaint is that the chilean sea bass was incredibly oily, which overwhelmed the flavour. Other than that, the duck salad is scrumptious, the dim sum delicate and exquisite and fabulous salt and pepper squid. The service seems to be a bit like an energy saving light bulb - takes time to warm up - with water taking 10 mins to arrive, but once they are rolling it's fine. The lovely thing was they didn't turn our table. Admittedly it wasn't that busy, but it was great to be able to linger for a lazy Sunday. I think that this is £60 well spent!

I've visited Hakkasan Mayfair once before, ordered from the main menu and loved the food, atmosphere and thought the service was decent enough. This was my first time at Hakkasan Hanway Place and we decided to sample the set menu. I have to agree with prior reviews, this is a seriously sexy venue, you really do feel quite special. I can honestly say that the Taste of Hakksan menu is the best set menu I've had anywhere in terms of taste, quality and price. You get a huge amount for £35, including a cocktail. I loved the strawberry and basil martini and my boyfriend had the Hakka (not to my taste but rightly a very popular choice). There is a choice of two starters - dim sum and duck rolls which were both excellent and 3 mains (we had the beef and cod which were both divine). In terms of dessert, you can order anything from the main menu which is extensive. Everything was beautifully presented and overall, I was very impressed. I felt the service was a little more refined than the Mayfair branch which was an added bonus. I actually prefer the Hanway Place venue to the Mayfair one. It's a little more intimate and well laid out. It's also feels less busy and is quieter, worth bearing in mind. My only criticism is that the wine menu is set out in a muddled way although it's good in terms of offerings. A great opportunity to sample exquisite Michelin star food without breaking the bank.
