Review : New set lunch at Hakkasan, Mumbai

A lot of people consider Hakkasan to be a pricey dining option but they are trying to break away from this with their latest offer of a set lunch menu priced at Rs.1200 + tax. The set lunch menu is on till the end of June and included 3 small eats, 2 mains, 2 rice/noodles and 1 dessert. Apart from the set lunch they also have a weekly lunch menu with new dishes added weekly along with the favourites.

We started off with a large spread of small eats and a round of refreshing cocktails. See what our table looked like!

After all these we moved on to the mains. My favourites were the crunchy stir fry french beans in a nice soy sauce, chicken Ho Fun Noodles were perfect, steamed salmon in black bean sauce was amazing and tasted really nice with the fried rice. For the vegetarians Ho Fun Noodles with mock meat is a good option.

After the mains we still wanted to try the desserts. We did decide not to eat for the rest of the day! I enjoyed the three chocolate bavarois with coconut and lemon sorbet and from the a la carte the coconut panna cotta with pineapple coconut sorbet was light and refreshing, though I’d wish for more panna cotta in this dessert. We also tried the white chocolate parfait with blueberry sorbet. I found the parfait too sweet but the blueberry sorbet was a big hit!

We enjoyed the lunch thoroughly and felt that the set menu is a great deal to go for.
