What better way to kick off The Assistant Room events than an amazing afternoon in Mayfair with an incredibly inspirational group of people exploring the new Tea and Dim Sum lunch menu at Hakkasan on Bruton Street?!
As masters of Michelin star Cantonese cuisine, Hakkasan has always held a very prestigious place on my list of venues to book on both a corporate and personal basis and on this occasion (unsurprisingly) they certainly did not let us down.
Founded in London in 2001, Hakkasan has since become one of the world’s most distinguished global restaurant, lounge and nightlife brands.
Executive Head Chef Tong Chee Hwee has led the Hakkasan kitchen since its inception, and his dedication to Chinese cuisine has achieved the group numerous awards including multiple Michelin stars at Hakkasan locations across the world. Leading its global culinary expansion is International Executive Chef Ho Chee Boon, a Michelin-starred Chef with over 24 years’ experience. His traditional techniques use fresh local ingredients to ensure his contemporary dishes retain the essence of conventional Cantonese cuisine. With signature dishes such as the Roasted silver cod with Champagne and honey to the Crispy duck salad, his international expertise creates an impressive epicurean experience.

Inside the Mayfair venue, Hakkasan’s atmosphere is vibrant, intriguing and inviting. Originally designed by renowned interior designer Christian Liaigre, the space embodies the modern ethnic now found in Hakkasan restaurants worldwide and with a moody/sexy ambience executed perfectly, Hakkasan transports you away from London and into a world of its own.
We started with a Summer inspired mocktail at the bar in the lower ground of the floor, palettes cleansed and refreshed leaving us ready to take on the immense variety of dishes we knew were ahead of us all. With Hakkasan inviting so many different guests to dine with them, all requirements are catered for not just when dining but also when drinking with an array of non alcoholic options on offer to suit all tastes. With some of the best mocktails in London and an exciting new addition of non alcoholic gin to their bar, those from certain cultures and parts of the world, those who are teetotal or who are expecting a new addition to the family will be able to enjoy an experience no lesser than the person has a glass of wine or lychee martini.

‘Setting the group alight with excitement, we were joined by two of my all time favourite brands the amazing Maison De Fleurs and Leeming Brothers.’
After an amazing afternoon, our guests left accompanied by a bunch of Narcissi and a box of Leeming Brothers finest.
