Hakkasan London is one of those “places in London” that you must visit while living there or even visiting for a couple of weeks. One thing that you must keep in mind about “Hakkasan London” is that, if someone is taking you there on a date then, they are definitely trying to get into your pants. There is this weird blue lighting in the main hall that interferes with the attractiveness of both punters and food. May be they have kept it this way because footballers used to “eat in Hakkasan London” and they needed this kind of atmosphere to keep their spirits up.
On the other hand, if you “visit Hakkasan Mayfair”, they have got relatively low lighting which is not too heavy for eyes as well. One interesting thing about this place though is that, when you look at the floor, you will see your own face. They put a lot of effort to make it this way but hey, who am I to complain? After all, I’m the one who decided to pay visit to “Hakkasan London” right?
If you are visiting Hakkasan London for a date then you will find yourself disagreeing with your partner most of the times. You see, there is a natural difference between men and women when it comes to preferences. While men like to eat a place that has got vivid lighting (weird in case of women), women like to eat a place where there is bright lighting and romantic music playing in the background (weird in case of men). The point I’m trying to make here is that, if you are really in a mood to have some weird yet interesting night with your date then you should pick “Hakkasan London” but if you are one of those people who would like their day to end like normal people then you should probably find some other place to have a date.
In Hakkasan London, they will serve you with soft-shell crab but you may not like it. I personally didn’t like it because they served it with noodles. Now, you tell me, who in the world serves soft-shell crab with noodles? Well, who am I to argue again because these are the same kind of things that people like about Hakkasan London. I may be one of those people who didn’t really liked this place but the presence of so many couples was an indication that I may be wrong. There might be a possibility that in the beginning, you hate Hakkasan London but when you keep coming back again and again, you start loving it.
Well, coming back to crab in “Hakkasan London”, the texture of the crab made some sense and that is the main reason why I agreed to eat it in the first place. If the texture hadn’t attracted me, I would have simply sent the crab back and beat the hell out of management for making such kind of food combinations.
If you ask how I did found the overall experience of visiting Hakkasan London then I would say that, it was a mixed experience. In a sense, I liked it but in another sense, I hated being there. All in all, Hakkasan London is definitely a must visit place because it makes you decide for yourself whether you like it or not.
