Hakkasan Mayfair is the second site of the very successful Chinese restaurant originally set up by Alan Yau. The new location is on Bruton Street and while it features a lot of the old favourites from Hakkasan on Hanway Place, executive chef Tong has created some new signature dishes for the Mayfair site.

"I don't mean 'I remember thinking it was good'; I mean it was so good I can almost recreate the taste from memory. How often in life does that happen? Not often enough!" READ REVIEW

"I’ve nothing against the rich (I hope to join them when I grow up) but without wine, we paid more than £150. I repeat: without wine. You could be looking at a ton a head without breaking sweat."

"...once you arrive it’s almost exactly the same as the other one: a sort of futuristic, slatted lacquer and bamboo nightclub with tables, where Blade Runner meets Tenko but the catering is way better" READ REVIEW

"We enjoyed the simpler items the most - benchmark har gau dumplings were plump and fresh, if unconventionally large, while xiao long bao had thin, delicate wrappers and a rich porky broth, though none of the flavours of the advertised dried scallop." READ REVIEW

"The main requirement for Chinese food is “xia fan” which means, poorly translated, “goes well with rice” – no complaints there. And, as my friend admitted, Hakkasan delivered well on the sixth taste, umami, which is a particularly delicious type of savouriness and a crucial part of Chinese cooking." READ REVIEW
