Ring In The Year Of The Tiger At Atlantis, The Palm With Specially Curated Chinese New Year Celebrations At Hakkasan And Saffron

A time for fresh beginnings and welcoming a new year, diners can enjoy a festive dinner with loved ones at two of the resort’s most popular restaurants

In celebration of China’s most important festival of the year, on Tuesday 1st February Atlantis, The Palm invites diners to usher in the Year of the Tiger, and to celebrate the occasion with family and friends at Dubai’s most stylish contemporary Cantonese restaurant, Hakkasan from 31st January to 15th February or at Saffron on 1st February.

Otherwise known as Lunar New Year or Spring Festival, the annual event marks the first day on the traditional lunisolar Chinese calendar. On 1st February this year, the animal sign will switch from the ox to the tiger, symbolising that 2022 is a year for making big changes, taking risks and new adventures – possibilities that are definitely worth celebrating.


World-renowned Cantonese restaurant Hakkasan will welcome guests with a special edition signature set menu and individual dishes specially created for the Chinese New Year celebration. The set menu, which is priced at AED 498, starts with a ‘Yu Sheng’ smoked salmon salad as a welcome from the chef and a Xingfu dim sum trio boasting a baked truffle duck puff, tiger prawn dumpling, and wild mushroom puff. Main dishes include baked cornfed spatchcock with morel mushroom, wok-fried seabass, Wagyu rib eye with osmanthus sauce, and XO sauce lobster egg fried rice. A gold tiger-striped orange dark chocolate firecracker and mandarin sorbet will round the evening and mark the end of the luxurious feast. 

Keeping with the theme, diners can also indulge in a King of Fujian cocktail inspired by the Chinese tiger’s original habitat of the Fujian province, created in partnership with Ketel One vodka. Priced at AED 80, the tropical serve includes kumquat, a symbol of good luck, passion fruit, lychee, lemon juice and basil leaves, beautifully garnished with edible gold leaf in a coupe glass, featuring a playful tiger print.

The long-standing tradition of constructing a wishing tree within Hakkasan restaurants worldwide will continue this year, bringing good fortune in the Year of the Tiger. Guests of Hakkasan Dubai are invited to write their wishes on a red ribbon before tying it to the restaurant’s wall latticing in hopes that they will come true in the coming year.
