Hakkasan Dubai, the winner of Time Out Dubai’s Best Chinese Restaurant 2018 award, has ceased trading as of Sunday 1st July.
Hakkasan Dubai released a short statement to say that they had “decided to close their current operation at Jumeirah Emirates Towers Hotel as of Sunday 1st July 2018. Please stay tuned as we announce our new location very soon. We’d like to thank our loyal customer who have made our time in Dubai a tremendous success. We look forward to remaining part of the community.”
No other details about the future of Hakkasan in Dubai have been released.
The brand was launched in London in 2001 and it has 12 locations around the world. Hakkasan is run by two Michelin-starred chefs: executive head chef Tong Chee Hwee and international executive chef Ho Chee Boon, the latter of whom visited the Dubai outlet in May for an exclusive dinner series.
