Hakkasan Hanway Place

Cantonese in The West End

Inaugurating glamorous Cantonese dining in London in 2001, Hakkasan now has offspring throughout Asia, the Middle East and the US, yet it still puts everything into the original, tucked away in Fitzrovia's Hanway Place. Classic dim sum include king-crab dumplings with peppercorn sauce, while the wider menu offers simple, perfect dishes such as stir-fried rib-eye with lily bulb and black bean.

Set menus ranging from £33 to £120 per person can be wonderful ways to sample the range of the talented Cantonese chefs behind the fancy, lacquered dining room.
