      Hakkasan is a fancy and fashionable Michelin-starred Chinese chain that comes to Shanghai via London. This is the latest branch of the international chain which also boasts branches in New York, Miami, Vegas, San Francisco, the UAE and even Mumbai. The soul of the menu is Cantonese and features traditional status ingredients like abalone or bird's nest as well as more Western notions of luxury like crispy roast duck with caviar. There are other simpler standbys like salt and pepper squid or pepper steak stir-fried with merlot. The beverage program is huge, with voluminous wine list and extensive cocktail program, too. But it's most striking feature is the space itself. It's beautifully appointed with dim lights and intricate wooden screens which create cozy little alcoves. Best for a splurge or to impress important people.

    Hakkasan is a brand that was started in my home city of London by entrepreneur Alan Yau but has since expanded across the globe to the US, middle east and surprisingly even China. I did wonder how they would manage, bringing a British Chinese brand to China, but they have done an amazing job with every little meticulous detail to replicate the original UK restaurant.

    I've been several times, but my last dinner visit was on my wedding anniversary and I was lucky enough to get a Bund view table overlooking the Pudong skyline. We deliberately arrived a bit early as it was a Wednesday night which is Hakkatini night where specific cocktails are reduced to 48 RMB (normally around 90 RMB upwards).

    After a couple of aperitifs we moved to our table and started the anniversary meal which consisted of assorted dim sum followed by roast duck with caviar, pork belly in steamed buns and some seasonal vegetables. I wanted to order more butt the waiter advised that it was already enough.

    Everything was done to perfection. This was never going to be a cheap meal and for our anniversary I wouldn't want it to be. Many of the dishes seemed to be luxury equivalents of dishes I was already familiar with.

    If you have room, you should try their desserts. The chocolate sphere was delicious and they give you some hot chocolate sauce to pour over it which eventually makes it collapse.

    All in all, a great dining experience. Not necessarily an every day destination but when you want something a bit special, I would recommend Hakkasan without hesitation.
    Great meal on the Bund, service could be improved

    The wife and I recently ventured to Hakkasan to treat visiting family to a fancy Bund meal. I wasn’t sure about her choice at first, but the wife insisted as Hakkasan had been recommended by a number of friends. The concept is pretty simple – upscale Chinese with a focus on Cantonese dishes. The menu selections looked really good and we ended up ordering some dimsum, pork belly, sanbeiji, eggplant, lamb, veggies and fried rice. Everything was really good and tasted very fresh. When I first thought of paying Bund prices for Chinese food, I thought it was crazy, but the quality and presentation was unlike anything else I’ve had in Shanghai.For dessert we tried their chocolate sphere – which was incredible and easily shared among our party of four.

    While the food was really enjoyable, the service was less than desirable. To be fair, we ended the night on a good note, but the evening started off a little rocky. When we arrived we were told our table wasn’t ready yet. This seemed a bit surprising as we had an 8:30 reservation. It wasn’t a huge deal though and we headed to the bar for some drinks. The drinks were pretty tasty, and the nuts at the bar were also pretty addicting, but it was some 45 minutes later until we were finally seated. If this had been a restaurant in NYC I’m thinking they would have comped a drink or two, but this didn’t happen. The service was also a bit spotty off and on during our meal - bringing the wrong drinks and having to wave down waiters/waitresses to get orders.

    The decor and environment definitely matches the Bund scene, as well as the prices. For drinks and dinner for four the damage was in upwards of 2000 RMB. It’s hard to shell out that kind of money when you’ll pay a quarter of that at a place like Charmant or Belagio. Yet all in all, it was a really nice experience and definitely a great place to treat and impress friends, family or guests. They should just remember that the service should match everything else that comes with being on the Bund.
    FORGET IT!!!

    If you want to be challenged when you ask your waitress (Rose in my case) for a small soy sauce dish and be told you can put your food in the bowl and not in the soy sauce dish you may come here. If you want to have the only pot of tea in Shanghai where they don't keep the tea leaves in and won't add any hot water to it you may come here, so you can order more pots of tea one by one! If you want to pay 10% service charge and ask to see the manager twice and be ignored then you may come here. If you want really slow service to top it all off, then Hakkasan would surely be your choice du jour.

    The food was nothing special, I expected more of a twist on the traditional dim sum but sadly this place fails all expectations.
    Too loud but great food

    Saturday dinner for 2. Special occasion. I knew it was “classy” but I didn’t expect the person on the phone to remind me of the dress code “smart casual”. It leaves me uneasy but my girlfriend thinks it’s good, that it sets the tone.

    We walked in, I wasn't much impressed. It’s visually low-key, and quite loud. Loud with laughter and people speaking at unnecessary voice level for that kind of restaurant. Nothing wrong with people being happy and cheerful, but I guess I was expecting something more quiet.

    Unfortunately we got seated right next to a table of 2 young Chinese girls with an older (Western) man, and listening to their shit was not an option for our romantic diner, so we asked to change to another table. It took 5 to 10 minutes and had to ask 3 waiters of different ranking, but we got what we asked for: a quieter table which made us relieved and happy.

    Ordered 2 glasses of champagne, poured from a magnum bottle. I liked that.

    My first “wow” came with the food. The fried chicken and the crispy prawn came first. They looked good and tasted even better. Then came the tofu and aubergine clay pot, followed by the lamb shank. The claypot was good but nothing amazing. The lamb was crazy tender, melting in my mouth, really good.

    Dishes were not small and those 4 dishes did the job for the 2 of us.

    Final bill: RMB 1460 I think, for 2 glasses of champagne, 1 glass of Chilean pinot noir, a bottle of still water, 4 dishes, and steamed rice.

    Conclusion: louder than I expected, if I knew I would not have chosen that place for that night. But I’ll maybe go back on different occasions with colleagues.

    I went here on a whim after not getting into Mr & Mrs Bund because of Bingo night. Really? There are more sad people in this city than I thought.

    Being honest I never knew about the Hakkasan international branches or it's reputation. It sounds Japanese for crying out loud!! As you walk in the first thing that strikes you is the crazy high ceilings, the sparkling decor, and a trip to the bogs make you realise you are in a place where the owners have spent some serious cash. The menu is comprehensive without being overwhelming. We ordered hot sake (just to keep the Japanese theme going) which was troublesome but after that the service was excellent. The dishes came quick and were well presented. All good for sharing. No dish was poor and actually the duck was excellent. Damage was 500 per head which for what we ate and drank was pretty good.

    Give this place some time and it will be popular for locals and expats. Don't bring your bingo card though.
    Solid dining experience

    Went for dinner with a group of friends,

    Service was spot on throughout, attentive helpful and smiling. Interestingly constructed wine list with the sommelier coming up to explain it when he saw me studying it.

    Food was tasty and we shared dishes to get an idea of the variety on offer. Whilst not cheap, you're paying for the overall dining experience.

    Good restaurant to impress whoever you're taking there!
