8 Hanway Place, LONDON, W1T 1HD

2 rosettes

Discretely hidden from the maddening crowds just off Tottenham Court Road and Oxford Street, this original Hakkasan still rocks (there's a sister restaurant in Mayfair). Descend to the moody basement and you're immediately captivated by the effortlessly cool, modern Chinoiserie design and night-clubby vibe: think darkwood latticing, black and gold traditionally drawn panels, and low-slung leather seating, plus a backlit cocktail bar and open kitchen. To match the up tempo vibe, an innovative repertoire of new-wave meets classic Cantonese dishes covers all bases, and everything is exquisitely presented. You might start with some first-rate dim sum (XO scallop dumplings perhaps) or jasmine tea smoked organic pork ribs from the 'small eat' section of the menu, before moving on to something like stir-fried Chilean sea bass with white truffle and black bean sauce, or maybe sweet-and-sour Duke of Berkshire pork with pomegranate. Desserts lean heavily on the West: witness a deconstructed apple tarte Tatin with blackberry, almond and vanilla. A heavyweight wine list and an exciting cocktail selection completes the picture.
