Hakkasan Group to open five restaurants in Saudi Arabia

Five of Hakkasan Group’s famed restaurant brands are set to open in Saudi Arabia.

Al Khozama Management Company has announced that it is working with the Hakkasan Group to open five new outlets in the kingdom, including Hakkasan, Yauatcha and Sato No Hana, in the next five years.

The move marks first step into Saudi Arabia for Hakkasan Group, which has more than 50 establishments across the Middle East, Europe, the USA, and Asia.

Al Khozama, a hospitality and property management company, said the Hakkasan Group brand will bring new dining experiences to the kingdom, and will cater to growing demand for fine dining.

“Over the years, we have committed to offering our diners and guests in the kingdom unparalleled dining experiences,” said Abdulaziz Al Habib, president of Al Khozama Management Company.

“A number of our restaurants in the kingdom are consistently rated among the top 20 in the country.

“In Saudi Arabia, we are witnessing a burgeoning fine-dining culture. Both residents and visitors have more refined tastes and discerning dining expectations. Hakkasan Group excels in creating dining experiences that are unmatched. We look forward to working together to cater to this segment and introduce to the market a new level of excellence in dining unprecedented in the Kingdom.”

Neil Moffitt, CEO of Hakkasan Group, said Saudi Arabia is an ideal location for the group to open its restaurant brands because of its “flourishing restaurant sector”

“With a dynamic economy and growing numbers of tourists visiting Saudi Arabia, we are excited about bringing a new and fresh dining experience for both locals and the global customer coming to the region,” Moffitt said.

“Importantly, this partnership builds on our global expansion strategy by rounding out our portfolio in the Middle East, where we already have a presence in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Doha, and soon to be in Bahrain.

“For Hakkasan Group, choosing like-minded partners has always been key for us. Al Khozama operates one of the most successful luxury hospitality companies in the kingdom and caters to a similar clientele of well-travelled high-net worth individuals. They have the same focus and passion for excellence in culinary experiences and impeccable service. We look forward to bringing our distinctive offerings to the Kingdom with Al Khozama”.
