Tucked away in one corner, the restaurant is is partitioned into different sections, like the lounge, party area with a bar, private dining areas, the regular bar which is very long and well stoked and the wine cellar. The outside seating was closed owing to the hot weather. I was very kindly taken all around the restaurant after I had ordered for the set lunch menu. Also ordered for the scallop shumai from the regular menu.
The food was fresh and served steaming hot. The taste was good but not outstanding. The location is impressive and the ambience is good and the food going by the regular menu, well, pricey.
Set lunch AED 120
Scallop shumai AED 45
Voss AED 28. Total with tax AED 231.

Hakkasan is one of my favourite restaurant in Dubai, i have been there on a few occasions and always have received the best service this city can get(amazing!!!), incredible food, great atmosphere,...it is not coming cheap, but if you compare to the other big restaurants in the city it is good value, the non-smoking policy in the main restaurant is a plus, they have the most fantastic Terrace in town.
Food wise, the Dim Sums are succulent, my favourites "Starters" are Crispy Duck Salad, Wagyu Beef Ribs, Salt and Pepper Squid, Grilled Shanghai Dumplings,...name it.
For the main courses, you would die for the Chilean Seabass and Chinese Honey, most of their Duck dishes,...
Great desserts, well-matched with pudding wines or Spirits. their drink list in the Bar is amazing and their wine list the best in Dubai for sure.
i wanted to react to the above reviews as they are very harsh on this special place.
you should give it a try and get converted!

We were in a group of 8 ladies who went to the restaurant for lunch, the food was below average,the soup we ordered was passe, and the vegetarian soup was with a peculiar unpleasant smell to it.
The Spicy thai prawns were doused with coconut cream and very little commercial thai curry paste,with no flavor of anything in particular, all that we were tasting was creme and blob. The taste of the prawns was just not there,the fried rice we had ordered was glutinous mass of oil,dark soya sauce and no vegetables at all.The chicken was in a claypot again
with an overpowering five spice flavor. We were really disappointed with
the food.The service was okay.

My wife took me there for lunch, and the food was delightful.
Prices are about twice what we would pay in Vancouver for the same quality. Staff well outnumbered the diners at lunch.
It seemed very odd to me that menu prices DID NOT include tax and service, which has been the norm in Dubai for some time. When I mentioned it to a guy in a tie (floor manager or captain maybe?) he did what I don't like - he told me I was wrong and started arguing with me. That is NOT what I expect at this price point. We rarely dine at Jumeirah establishments as there always seems to be a spoiler. Oh well!

I went to Hakkasan on my birthday and I have to say that as all the standing alone resrtaurant in Dubai, Hakkasan is not an exception that is amazing,
truly expensive but worth every single penny.
The dim sum platter is a must and the duck with foie gras is an ultimate experience for an Chinese restaurant.
Service is attentive and sure still need to improve with time.
Please book the terrazza because you will feel to dine somewherelse than in Dubai.
