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.

Very slow to bring our champagne to start with and asked 3 times if we wanted it ?! Dined on the £42 pp menu but everything had an additional charge. However , the food was faultless as always so a super luncheon.

great service, I don't think I asked the waiter's name but he was really pleasant. The food is always good it never fails. Tried the little desserts for the first time which were also great. Only slight criticism I would have would be the club music playing, would be better with the volume a little lower especially as we were sitting outside to be able to talk a little more. Apart from that though everything was great will be back

Table booked for 6.30. Lovely polite greeting by staff. Very attentive especially the young man who served us,(I didn't get his name)
Starters were amazing,mains and cocktails were EVERYTHING!!!!
Deserts absolutely tiny but we loved it anyway. Beautiful experience. Thank you for making my hubby's Birthday Special.
Would have loved for there to be a wider range of deserts as I have allergies and there was only one option for me.
Otherwise perfect.

After being shown to a poor table on the inside we eventually sat on a nice heated table on the terrace which was very nice

The food was amazing, as usual.
However the staff were rude.
We asked if there was a closet to hang our coats and jackets and was told no. Later finding out as we exited the restaurant, there was a coat closet at the entrance.

We are in a pandemic, restaurants need all the help they can get. We love to support businesses during this time. Being met with such hostility, made me feel extremely uncomfortable and I doubt I will be returning to this location again.

food ticket was misplaced after we had received three out of five dishes, service was inconsistent. we booked an earlier table due to the curfew and still ended up having to rush our dinner and leave before dessert as it was nearing 10pm

Food was very good as always however I was disappointed to see that tables were not properly distanced from one another given the current situation. We had people sitting next to us at what appeared to be less than 2m. The restaurant was very busy at peak time with no open windows for ventilation.

For a relatively expensive restaurant with a good reputation I was expecting a lot lot more. The service was really quite bad, from the minute you walk in downstairs until when you leave. Dim sum was good but the rest of the dishes were really quite standard at best. For £80 a head you can do a lot lot better in London.
To be fair I visited with the 10pm curfew so I appreciate there are many more pressures on restaurants now.

Lovely service, impeccable food. It's not the cheapest meal you'll get but given the attention to detail and preparation, it merits the cost.

Great Yum Cha style menu, best I have encountered so far in London. Great food, but was more expensive than I thought it needed to be. Staff and Venue were also great.

Great food as always but seated next to the terrace on a cold evening and the door left open, which was uncomfortably cold. Very boisterous crowd.

Overwhelming number of set menus to find the one we went for over half of the items listed came at a surplus charge. Food was hit and miss - dim sum was great but egg fried rice was bland and hand pulled noodles overbearing like chow mein x1000. Dessert was smaller than my thumb. Cocktails were fantastic though and sake was good value. No social distancing between tables however. Was sat down and told we had 1.5hrs at the table to be given the bill 20 mins before and asked for cloakroom items swiftly after. Had a great experience here before but may reconsider another visit given the amount you spend here.

Have always loved this restaurant. But this time round it felt a little stale and not so accommodating. Obviously with everything going on, it is hard. But this is a high end restaurant with prices that reflect. Just didn’t feel it this time

Our waiter was most unhelpful and was about to refuse serving dessert claiming we hadn’t ordered it although we placed our order at the start of the meal. After we complained to the Manager it turned out that two glasses were still left in our bottle of wine which he hadn’t bothered to pour as he was keener on settling the bill. The Manager was very helpful.

Great venue, albeit service tends to be a bit slow at peak times and junior service staff is no too familiar with bespoke requests for drinks.

Due to the new COVID curfew (10pm) the kitchen were very slow with our courses and had to wait for about an hour for each course. The server was very kind and tried to keep on top of it , but because the kitchen was inundated with orders, we didn’t get our meal on time, which ruined our experience.

Food was tasty and amazing !!

Customer service could be better.
The receptionist made us feel unwelcomed as we didn't have a mask.
(we didn't know we had to wear one)
The waitress who took our order couldn't recommend me any tea because she said they have a lot of choices and that she didn't know what I like. When I ordered my tea she asked me if I would like to have it at the end of my meal. She should know the etiquette of the restaurant to provide better customer service.
And she would take the empty plates without engaging with us (it didn't bothered me but usually waiters ask if they can take the empty plates)
The head waiter or manager has an excellent customer service, he was polite and friendly.
In my opinion it is overpriced but the food was exquisite and good quality ingredients.
I will go back for the food but I would like the food to be accompanied with good customer service as it is an expensive restaurant.
