Hakkasan isn’t just a reg­u­lar din­ing place. It’s an up­mar­ket, lux­ury Can­tonese din­ing joint fre­quented by celebri­ties such as Jac­que­line Fer­nan­dez, Shahid and Mira Kapoor and Sunny Leone. Their food menu is tightly cu­rated while the drinks menu is ex­haus­tive. In fact, the lat­ter is a tome, and if you are spoilt for choice, the place of­fers plenty of op­tions. But, to be def­i­nitely tried are the new dishes cu­rated by Chef Andy Toh Chye Siong, who works as an Ex­ec­u­tive Chef in Hakkasan, Mid­dle East. Their new menu com­prises soups, dim­sums, wok dishes, desserts and dishes like black truf­fle roast duck, lob­ster shu­mai, mapo sauce veg­etable dumplings, grilled black cod with truf­fle sauce, sweet and sour chicken with pomegranate, wok lob­ster in Chi­nese and honey and black pep­per, truf­fle bean curd roll and steamed tofu with veg­eta­bles in lo­tus leaf, to name a few. Some of these dishes are al­ready stars in their Dubai and Abu Dhabi out­lets. We sug­gest you to pair these new­bies with some Mum­bai spe­cial drinks, es­pe­cially Chumo Shen, a turmeric cock­tail that has a burst­ing flavour of raw turmeric to it. Speak­ing about ser­vice, it’s fluid.

The servers are en­thu­si­as­tic, knowl­edge­able about the menu, but not ob­tru­sive and an­noy­ing. A din­ner at Hakkasan goes be­yond food, it is an ex­pe­ri­ence, touch­ing upon var­i­ous sen­sory points: smell, sight, taste, touch and hear. Go, if you want to ex­pe­ri­ence an evening that goes be­yond ‘ba­sic din­ing’. Be­cause, Hakkasan, is any­thing but ba­sic. It’s sets a new stan­dard.
