SquareMeal Review of Hakkasan Mayfair

Gold Award

Known around the world and with a legion of famous fans including Drake and the Beckhams to name just a few, the Hakkasan brand has become synonymous with high-end glamour. This Mayfair outpost certainly lives up to the brand’s reputation, offering up a scintillating, seductive and downright intoxicating dining experience.

Whether you are splashing the cash in the pulsating bar with a nightclub feel or playing it cool in the sleek ground-floor dining room, you are bound to have a good time here (and run up a hefty bill too). Prices may be sky-high, but devotees of the house style can’t get enough, with one reader labelling Hakkasan Mayfair as “always delicious and great for a special night out”. Diners are in heaven as they drool over “incredible east-meets-west platefuls” of steamed langoustines wrapped in glass vermicelli with chilli and garlic sauce, spicy lamb salad with peanut dressing (one of our favourites) or stir-fried Norfolk quail with winter chestnuts, basil and lemongrass – a dish that is unique to Hakkasan Mayfair.

“Divine dim sum” such as steamed har gau crowned with gold leaf, homemade pumpkin tofu or smoked beef ribs with jasmine tea crank up the thrill factor even further (especially at lunchtime), and the whole Michelin-starred shebang is fuelled by premium sakés, brilliantly chosen matching wines and ritzy cocktails (“unusual, but in a good way”).

As you would expect, staff are immaculately groomed. Occasionally, there are complaints of lacklustre service but we’ve always found that Hakkasan Mayfair’s pretty young things are not just there for show, with most of them being on the ball. While it is true that eating at Hakkasan Mayfair may be a wallet-emptying experience, it is also a fact that dining at this flash spot will make “you feel like a billionaire for a few hours”.

Still deserving of a Michelin Star!
Once Hakkasan opened in Mayfair, we swiftly switched our bookings from Hanway Place, simply because it is geographically easier for us to get to. I last reviewed this venue in 2013 and my review would change little now - testament to a consistently good 'formula'. The concept seems as fresh as it did back then. My only criticism this time - service could have been more attentive given that we dined off-peak. Not sure if I am the only sad case to remember these, but I mourn the loss of the Singapore Vermicelli noodles, and would dearly like to seem them back on the menu.

Nice, but not that nice…

Nice, but not that nice. If you want to spend £450 on lunch there are much nicer (Michelin starred/or not) ways to do it. If you order a taster menu as we did, don't be surprised to still receive the majority of the food all at the same time. This makes for a much quicker eating experience than we would have liked and made it feel a little too much like a very expensive fast food restaurant where they are too keen to get you in and out. Service was 'ok' but definitely not worth the 15% discretionary service charge which seemed to be assumed would be paid. As I say nice, but not that nice.

Delicious food!

 We dined here to try the 'Taste of Hakkasan' menu, £39 for 3 courses and a cocktail. This is excellent value for a restaurant of this quality! I had 'The Hakka' cocktail (with vodka, lychee, coconut, passion fruit )....delicious! Then steamed dim sum, stir fried beef, sticky rice, and asparagus, followed by an amazing chocolate parfait 'ball' with hot chocolate sauce.....truly yummy! Great service, and a terrific experience !

Never disappoints, moody vibe, exquisite food - duck watermelon salad, shredded beef and dim sum my forever favourites. Great service but you can be rushed when you're approaching your 2 hour table limit.
