Hakkasan is an Oriental fusion restaurant in the West End of London, England. The restaurant was created by Alan Yau and has a Michelin star.
It is an experience!
I found this restaurant located underground in a dodgy backstreet near the intersection of Tottenham Court Road and Oxford Street. You walk down this dark alley and in a cul-de-sac see the soft but sparkling glow of lights leading to the entrance of this wonderful place. It is a high end Chinese-Pacific rim fusion restaurant. Dare I call it that, it is an experience! The interior is a mixture of modern and Chinese design. The clientele, I have never been in a place where I was able to look around the room and see so many well known people in one place (Liz Hurley was there!). The food is impeccable, and the drinks divine! Afterward, you can ask for a Mercedes cab, or stumble across Tottenham Court Road to get the Tube. It is where I took my wife on one of our first dates, and still continue to since we have gotten married. Remember to pack your wallet though! If you want a more casual experience, the owner has a noodle house (really top notch) off Carnaby Street called Cha-cha moon. Very good prices as well.
