The Harwood Arms
Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons, A Belmond Hotel, Oxfordshire
Fitzrovia, London - West
This is the original Hakkasan, the other being in Mayfair, which opened in 2001 as the high design modern Chinese restaurant. The interior is immediately impressive with its dark wood furniture and panelling contrasted by striking blue screen lighting dimly seeping through. Perfect as a romantic destination with the welcome distraction of the theatre of an open plan kitchen visible to the diners. Cooking is multi award-winning Chinese cuisine and has held a Michelin star since 2003.
