Hakkasan to host Michelin celebration dinner series in the UAE

Chefs from four Michelin-star-winning Hakkasan branches will create eight-hand menus on 9 and 10 June

In celebration of Hakkasan holding a Michelin star at each of its locations in Dubai and Abu Dhabi in the UAE, and Mayfair and Hanway Place in London, the modern Cantonese restaurant group is hosting a special dinner series that's coming to Dubai and Abu Dhabi in June 2023.

Taking place at Hakkasan Dubai for one night only on Friday 9 June 2023, and then in Abu Dhabi on Saturday 10 June, the Hakkasan Executive Chef Dinner Series brings together four executive and head chefs from each of the Michelin-star-winning Hakkasan branches to create an eight-hand collaboration menu.

This celebration is especially timely for Hakkasan Dubai, which recently retained its one Michelin star during Dubai’s second edition of the Michelin Guide 2023 in May 2023.

Hakkasan Dubai and Hakkasan Abu Dhabi join London’s Hakkasan Hanway Place and Hakkasan Mayfair as Michelin star recipients within the Hakkasan brand.
