LPV's Top Selection for Chinese

Executive Head Chef Tong Chee Hwee has been at the helm since Hakkasan burst onto London's dining scene in 2001 with the Hanway Place branch. At our Top Selection branch in Mayfair, he draws on his culinary prowess to deliver a menu that is true to traditional Cantonese cooking techniques and yet delivers innovative flavour combinations. Stellar dishes that have earned him his accolades include the Dim Sum - a dazzling jewel-like array of silky morsels, sublime Roasted Silver Cod with Champagne and honey and a golden nest of crispy fried Soft Shell Crab. For a mesmerising culinary tour of the flavours and textures of the Orient, opt simply for the Signature Menus and be led on a tantalising taste journey: highlights include the Peking Duck, Hakkasan's version cleverly deconstructing the classic duck roll with bite sized squares topped with reserve "Qiandao' caviar and, served separately, a second course using only the prime cuts of meat with a choice of sauces from rich XO, luscious black bean or warming ginger and sping onion. Sesame prawn toast with foie gras comes light and crisp and the Wagyu beef supremely succulent. The decor is no less seductive with sleek black laquered screens and inviting, dimly lit booths. Sheer quality and stylish touches are in the details here, like the delicate dragons forms embroidered on the smooth creme leather banquettes that seat the equally chic clientele. Service too is polished and the competent professionalism of the staff all add to the restaurant's hypnotic allure. In particular, the talented team of Sommeliers meet with aplomb the challenge of matching wines to the complex and often punchy flavours. Their 'Tasting Tuesdays' ensures a comprehensive selection of wines are regularly tried and tested against the menu to ensure perfect pairings. Altogether, a prime example of finest innovative Asian cuisine in an equally prime Mayfair location. Look out for more interantional openings as Hakkasan continues its rapturous rise.
