Hakkasan Hanway Place


| Soho, Fitzrovia, Covent Garden

The original Hakkasan is tucked down a tiny alleyway just off Tottenham Court Road. Step inside though and you're transported to a Chinese den of black laquer and gold. Awarded a Michelin star two years after opening, it's retained it every year since.

"Boasting the first Michelin star ever awarded to a Chinese restaurant, Hakkasan is a long- term front-runner that’s up there with other famous names like Nobu and Zuma." READ REVIEW

"I am probably more in favour of the nooks and crannies of the deep-fried pig's oesophagus and steamed eel with preserved plum sort than most, but here much of the food was so delicious in its own right that I felt perfectly happy to eat more." READ REVIEW
