Trusted Reviews:

According to Newsday, “Succulent Hong Kong Shrimp just melted in the mouth, a very spicy Chili Fish was delicious and the Konjee Crispy. Chicken is a specialty. But there are a host of other great tasting spicy, not so spicy and non spicy dishes from which to choose.”  [Trinidad & Tobago’s Newsday, February 2010]

MACO Magazine also has kind words for HAKKA. “In a country that boasts a roti shop and a Chinese takeaway on almost every corner, it was only a matter of time before someone attempted to cook two pots with one fire. Hakka does it beautifully. If you’re looking for food with flavor, Hakka is the place you want to try.”  [MACO Magazine]

HAKKA is an Editor’s Pick for Conde Nast CONCIERGE, which said, “If there’s a thread that unites these dishes, it’s their deliciously fiery kick (highlights include Hong Kong shrimp and whole chile fish).”  [Conde Nast Magazine]

  1. I had tasted Hakka on a few occasions when my daughter brought me a “doggie” bag and I liked it. Since then I have purchased my own meals there and I absolutely love it! That melongene though, simply love it, cannot remember what it is called.


  2. I love their food and I love the taste of the kongee chicken but it is always so tough, then you realize all the taste is in the sauce. Why is it so tough and dry. I’m yet to taste a tender kongee chicken.


  3. I honestly did not believe Hakka was going to survive from my last visit two years ago. Lo and behold, this past Sunday when I drove by it is still in business. No. I did not go in. Having had two bake and sharks in Maracas Bay beach earlier I have no room for any more food. Late Sunday afternoon Woodbrook, where Hakka is located, is almost completely deserted.

    I must say the food is pretty average from my experience two years ago. I am Chinese, and of Hakka decent no less. The dishes are pretty salty and spicy, too much for my palate. Then again, I go to Trinidad to have street food such as bake and shark, roti, buss up shot and the like. Sorry I did not mention doubles because double is the only Trini food I do not care for. Sit down formal dining is not Trini food is famous for.

    I am also a traditionalist. I want my unadulterated Cantonese light fares. Steamed fish with scallion, fresh seafood and stir fried veggies. Fushion is not my cup of tea.

    So there you have it. If you do not like fusion you will not like Hakka. Believe me if you go there to search for Hakka (dishes) you will be very disappointed.


    • Had dinner one week ago..the food was pretty ok…but to my surprise i had barely finished my dessert (was having the last mouthful) when a waiter (and not the one who served us) came up to say that he needed the table for another customer. It was my first visit to Hakka and my partner actually said that I would like it there, but i must say I have never had that experience before and was visibly embarrassed. My partner apologized to me but the damage was already done, and of course it was not his fault, Needless to say that was my last visit….


  4. The Management at Hakka Restaurant & Bar needs to revisit the policy regarding Service charge on Takeout orders! it is unfair for pick up customers to be paying the same charge as the partons who sit and dine. Are you all so dishonest and desperate to capture every dollar that you find it necessary to impose ridiculous fees on unsuspecting customers? You may decide to delete my comment but it does not matter because many would have already seen it and it would not change the fact that you all are unethical and dishonest! if it is on the system it could come to hell off!


    • Hi Ria, just for the record we are not affiliated in any way with Hakka. (TriniChow is a blog that covers the food scene in Trinidad & Tobago.) With that said, we encourage you to contact Hakka directly to share your feedback as most restaurants are keen to hear feedback directly from customers.


      • I did. i called the next day and the manager said that the charge is on the system and that he told Management about it on numerous occasions. so my comment here was to simply bring more awareness


    • Ria, I completely agree with you that paying this service charge is ridiculous and unethical since no service is being provided. It’s probably illegal as well. I called in a pick up order and I challenged the person taking my order about the service charge. She said that there is indeed a service charge for pick up orders. Her exact words were ‘We get many complaints about it. but the owners say they not changing it. I jus taking the orders that is just how it is.’ So yes we need to make everyone aware and more.
      It’s a real shame since it is one my fav restaurants and the food is absolutely delicious. I really hope that management step up to the plate.


    • No, this is Hakka in Woodbrook.

      And, the Hakka in Gulf City was NOT “closed by the city corp. for being unsanitary.” (Hakka Express ‘not ordered to close’ – Trinidad Express, August 15, 2013)

      HAKKA’s name was mistakenly included — “The Public Health Department of the San Fernando City Corporation yesterday advised that Hakka Express, a fast food outlet at Gulf City Mall, La Romaine, was NOT ordered closed, as initially reported.”


  5. Amazing experience at Hakka last weekend. Ambiance, service, food A + plus it didn’t leave a huge dent in our pockets.
    I would definitely recommend this place.


  6. Went there for my birthday,BIG MISTAKE!!!! The Kongee Chicken was not crispy but HARD and very sweet and all the other dishes had no taste, just the same brown sauce with different meat. Won’t be doing that EVER again!


  7. What’s Happening i am new to this, I stumbled upon this I’ve discovered
    It positively helpful and it has aided me out loads. I
    am hoping to give a contribution & aid other customers
    like its aided me. Great job.
