Yauatcha City opened in May 2015 in Broadgate Circle, just outside Liverpool Street Station. This is Yauatcha’s second UK location following the success of its award winning restaurant in Soho.


Yauatcha City is an all-day dim sum teahouse, where friends and family gather to catch up over a wide selection of dim sum, wok dishes, tea and cocktails. To complement the cuisine, the drinks menu comprises nearly 40 types of tea, as well as cocktails inspired by Chinese ingredients and a broad wine and Champagne list.


Yauatcha’s first standalone patisserie, Yauatcha Patisserie, is located just below the restaurant, where Chinese heritage and modern European cooking techniques have inspired the pastry team to create a range of unique macarons, petits gateaux and chocolates.

Great meal, able to.order as soon as we arrived for the table, before they arrived which meant food arrived as they did. Came together, even though warned it comes as it is cooked. Good experience and well priced.

Asked to be served 5 times. Food came cold and waited 20 minutes for friends main to arrive, so we couldn’t eat together. Side orders were also forgotten. Not what you would expect from Yauatcha.

Surprisingly good when considering how excellent the Soho original Yauatcha is. Often the ‘cool City’ versions can lose a bit of flavour for pizzazz, but despite a great buzz, layout, attentive friendly staff, clean facilities, the food was excellent. Just order whatever you fancy, can’t go wrong with a load of dim sum, duck, veggie dishes and so on. Venison puffs are a favourite!

Food was very good (except the dessert, this needs a rethink on the Signature menu). Service was abysmal, not was it just one server, but each server screwed something up and were not attentive.

We came in late for dinner and Yauatcha was very accommodating - we also had to add more people to our booking unexpectedly. The waiter we had was very good at recommending items.

Better than I had expected. The menu is quite dim sum focussed (and for dinner time too) and some familiar dishes with some interesting original additions making for a pleasant change. Cheung fun was enjoyable especially as the prawns were much better than usually find. Noodles were light and didn’t taste overflavoured. The tea smoked ribs made a nice change but not sure would order again. Little noisy inside but what should expect given the location but with a great view over the area. Maybe not for the traditionalist but if want a change worth visiting.

We had a really lovely meal in Yauatcha, due to it being a Sunday it was extremely quiet in the restaurant. Food was great and the staff are were really lovely. We did feel a little rushed as the staff kept telling us the kitchen was closing despite us asking us to slow down the service as we had booked the weekend brunch menu. Overall I would recommend this to others but I probably wouldn't rush back.

It was the first time that I had dined at Yauatcha and I can definitely say that I will be returning. I had the set menu and so glad I did, I was able to try dishes that I would not normally pick myself. Such good value too. I have recommended Yauatcha already to all my friends.

Excellent food with generous portions. The soft shell crab with almond in particular is to die for.

The only reason I’ve not given a 5 star review is that the venue is a little pricey in my opinion.

Took my parents - was buzzy but not too noisy. Waitress was lovely, explained all the dishes (though the drinks could’ve arrived a little quicker after ordering). We’d booked the special weekend / Father’s Day menu, but were still given the option of a la carte - we all opted for the set menu which was light, fresh, tasty, and good value, including wine, cocktail and dessert. Is a lovely light airy space, making the most of the changeable sunlight on the day. I’ve been several times with friends, or for work and has never disappointed.

Service was really excellent. Staff extremely attentive and knowledgeable. Initial steamed dumplings were excellent - otherwise, food was ‘clumsy’ and not of standard expected at all. Set meal on a Sunday so rather overpriced.

I took my mother and we had the weekend set menu. The food was excellent and the restaurant was busy but not full. There was an extended delay of service between the dim sum items and the main course which meant we had to change our plans for the afternoon but overall would go again.

The food was good, but the service not great. Among the other things they forgot to bring us the drinks. When they finally brought them they just apologised, but they made us pay for them full prize. They could have, at the very least, given us the one coffee we ordered on the house, but they didn’t.

We had a lovely time at Yauatcha City and the food was really great. The only damper on the evening was the way some staff spoke to the staff working on the bathrooms. They were speaking in Spanish assuming customers wouldn't understand but it was pretty degrading and vulgar the way one member of staff was telling the other to clean the unisex bathroom. I almost said something but it was already uncomfortable as I was the only girl with those two men in the washroom with me.

We have been before and had a lovely meal. This time we probably chose badly. Had the medium price set meal at £60 per head. Starters and duck were very nice but we weren’t wowed with the soup or sticky rice or squid
