Another Alan Yau production, Hakkasan is the man’s Shanghai-style show-horse. Now with a Michelin star, it serves highly stylised Chinese dishes to a high-rolling clientele of celebrities, dignitaries, and the odd Arab sheik, who no doubt appreciate the expensive surroundings and glamorous, 30s low-lit décor.

Even after all these years and with a sprouting of outlets worldwide, this original location remains one of London’s top (and exciting) dining venues. A very sexy bar and a lacquered, latticed, screened off dining room provide the backdrop for the inventive, modern Chinese dishes including Peking duck with beluga caviar, baked silver cod with Chinese rice water, and Pi pa duck in spiced plum sauce. Suitable for both business and a private night out.
