A little late on posting my Hakkasan review but better late than never right?
Joe and I jumped at the chance of going here for my birthday – it was when book a table were doing London Restaurant Festival Month for the whole of October!
Last year we went to Hawksmoor in Mayfair who had a deal on too – If I remember correctly it was £30 each for a three course meal and cocktail. Bargain!
Any who, I squealed with excitement because guess what?! Hakkasan were doing a set menu for two for £40 each – this included a dim sum course, a main course, dessert and a cocktail. Who doesn’t want to experience a Michelin star restaurant and be wined and dined like a princess for only forty quid? I wish I could do it every day… #thedream
First of all, the interiors, the scent and the service was absolutely out of this world. Once you enter, you go down some stairs and look out on a low lighted luxurious dining reception, where you are greeted and you hand in your coats, umbrellas and so forth.
Also, the fragrance that they use for the stairs and reception is gorgeous – feels very luxurious and smells like Diptyque candles.
The food is presented beautifully, and we throughly enjoyed the Dim Sum course. There was a selection of fish and vegetable Dim Sum. Super tasty.
Then we had our main courses, we went for the stir-fry black pepper rib eye beef with merlot – seriously gorgeous and out of this world, alongside the spicy prawn dish with a side of rice!
The rib eye beef was my favourite dish, although having said that – every dish was incredible! And, I don’t usually eat prawn dishes, however we demolished them as they were cooked to perfection.
Lastly they presented a beautiful dessert with ‘happy birthday’ written on the plate – how sweet!
The dessert was a chocolate bombe covered in rice krispies, which would crackle in your mouth! Delightful!
Overall I would highly rate Hakkasan a 10/10. It lived up to it’s Michelin star for sure, and made my birthday so special!
Joe and I had the most gorgeous experience and would love to visit again for some other alternative dishes.
Have you been to Hakkasan – what are your thoughts on their menus?
