Hakkasan Hanway Place is the original Hakkasan restaurant. This Michelin-starred Chinese restaurant designed by Christian Liaigre, has re-created the luxurious glamour of the past by combining Chinese history, tradition and architecture.
Wooden lattice screens carved out of dark English oak invite discerning guests for a unique dining experience with contemporary cuisine from Chef Tong Chee Hwee.
The menu has a strong Chinese ethnic identity with an ethos of Cantonese cooking that will be informed by a progressive approach, underpinned by authenticity rather than traditionalism.
The bar has created an innovative range of Asian inspired cocktails.
Hakkasan Hanway Place have recently launched "Dim Sum Sundays": a weekly lunch event hosted by resident lounge DJs, available every Sunday from midday until 6.45pm.

Hakkasan is one of those places that just has "IT." It is kind of hidden down an alleyway off the main road. A woman at the door checks your name and then sends you in and down the stairs. There is a little bit of smoke and incense on the walk down and it just adds to the aura.

If you like Chinese, you will love this place... and even if you don't like Chinese, you will do by the time you have visited here!
I must admit that I am not usually the biggest fan of Chinese, but I can honestly say that my meal at Hakkasan was one of the best meals that I have ever had. The food was absolutely out of this world. It's hard to put a finger on why it was just so good - but it...more
The only Michelin-starred restaurant we have been to in London has been Barrafina, but a year or two before they were actually rewarded a star (I know, so much foresight). So it seemed to me that not having eaten at one before we leave for good would be a mark on our soul, so I looked up...Yahuatcha...due to my own love for dimsum. But after perusing through their menu, I became unsure as to...more
This is essentially overpriced Asian food off Tottenham Court Road. I've been to both branches of Hakkasan in London and this is pales in comparison to Hakksan Mayfair in terms of service, food quality and also general decor. Even walking to HHP feels a little eerie given it's at the end of a dark side street. Unfortunately, the inside also suffers from the same poor lighting.
This is based...more

We came here for my husband's birthday as he loves asian/chinese food.
I thought they had a michelin star but I think it's only the mayfair branch that does, which may explain the sub-par service.
Anyway, we arrived and were escorted to the bar which is pretty cool. Took a while to get served for drinks but when we did they were very good.
