Chinese
Yauatcha Soho, located in the heart of vibrant London, is an all-day dim sum teahouse offering a wide selection of modern authentic dim sum alongside European patisserie and an extensive range of teas, wine and cocktails. The design of the restaurant is a modern interpretation of the old Chinese teahouse. At the same time, the lighting and seating embodies the atmosphere of a vibrant ‘chatter shop’, similar to the traditional Hong Kong dim sum restaurants. The restaurant offers Cantonese dishes with a modern influence, with an extensive range of steamed, baked, grilled and fried dim sum such as Yauatcha’s signature dishes of Scallop shui mai and Venison puffs.

We tried the chefs tasting menu - love the truffle dim sums and the venison puff and the giant prawn dim sum. Duck pancakes weren’t great though.

Our table wasn’t comfortable, cold draft of air coming from entrance door, too much noise and commotion next to us, inadequate space on the table for the dishes we ordered!

Bar area separate to main dining area, facing a frosted glass wall 1ft in front of diners. No offer of alternative or complimentary drink etc in spite of immediate complaint. Left the restaurant and ignored upon leaving, unlike any other Hakassan owned restaurant we have visited.

Avoid and head to Hanway Place instead.

Very good food, not very good front desk staff. Sat us upstairs in spite of me asking twice to be downstairs and having booked in advance as it was for a special occasion. Upstairs is fine for tea and a cake but it’s not as lively as downstairs in the evening. At well over £100 for dinner for 2 - with only 2 beers - did not want to be sat in what feels like an upmarket airport lounge.

The food is worth putting up with the noise, overstretched service and overpriced wine list. The dim sum are the best there are.

Amazing value for money at an upscale restaurant. Wish it was less cramped however, food is the best Chinese I’ve had in a while, tasted fresh. However there was limited deserts as they had sold out.

We went for my mother’s birthday celebration.
There were some mistakes and our food didn’t arrive for like an hour so we were not happy about it.
It kind of ruined the occasion slightly.
However, one of the staff member was extremely understanding and she took good care of us. We really appreciated her effort :)
Thank you very much for everything!

Horrible table service, waiter had issues understanding English so ordering was painful, I had to ask multiple times for wine glasses to be toped up. For a corporate dinner it was not a pleasant experience. One of my colleagues has a food allergy which apparently they could accommodate with ease. First dish that arrived had the allergen scattered on top of the dim sum. Unacceptable and made my colleague weary of eating anything else and she end she just end up eating plain rice - hardly a meal worth £40 as set menu. No apologies were provided. For the rest of us food was ok but not exceptional. I used to think the Yauatcha was comparable to Roka, but after this visit it's completely not the case, Roka's service level is exceptional;. Yauatcha is below a basis dim sum take away. Very poor.

I was there to celebrate my partner's birthday, we ordered a number of dimsum dishes, it took them awhile to deliver the first dish which i entirely understand since they are busy. However, it took awhile before we receive the 2nd batch of food. What's worse was the last 2 dishes took them at least 15-20 mins and when I asked the waiter on the status of the food, he did not come back to me at all and I had to ask a second waiter.

"Your food is coming" was all we were told without given us the extract time. They either have forgotten the order or messed it up and didn't bother to apologise or rectify it.

As for the bill, I had to asked 3 times, the first 2 waiters can't be bothered to even get the bill he was just walking around (didn't seem to even bother to go to the counter to get the bill or even inform his colleague to help out if he was busy).

All in all, it wasn't a good experience.
