Hakkasan Hanway Place is the original restaurant of Hakkasan which was founded in London in 2001 and has since become one of the world’s most distinguished global restaurant, lounge and nightlife brands.
Designed by famed designer Christian Liaigre, Hakkasan Hanway Place embodies the Hakkasan design ethos of the modern ethnic now found in Hakkasan restaurants around the world. Wooden screens and latticing made of dark English oak is the same material used for the 16-metre bar, and the Ling Ling dining area evokes traditional Chinoiserie decadence, punctuated by black and gold traditionally-drawn panels. An open-plan kitchen is visible from the restaurant, making the activity in the kitchen part of the restaurant’s theatre.
Executive Head Chef Tong Chee Hwee has led the Hakkasan kitchen since its inception, and his dedication to Chinese cuisine has achieved the group numerous awards including multiple Michelin stars at Hakkasan locations across the world.
Leading Hakkasan’s global culinary expansion is International Executive Chef Ho Chee Boon, a Michelin-starred chef with over 24 years’ experience. His traditional techniques use fresh local ingredients to ensure his contemporary dishes retain the essence of conventional Cantonese cuisine.
With signature dishes such as the Roasted silver cod with Champagne and honey to the Crispy duck salad, his international expertise creates an impressive epicurean experience.
A dim sum, dessert and lunch menu are also available, as is Hakkasan’s award-winning wine list and signature cocktails. In 2003 the restaurant was awarded a Michelin star, which it has retained to this day, continuing to place Hakkasan at the forefront of Chinese cuisine.
