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.

Nice restaurant with creative food although the interior is somewhat worn and has a slight feeling of a fast food restaurant and the noise level on a Saturday night, still early in the evening, was a bit over the top. In hindsight I wished we would have selected the tasting menu since the dim sum in the end easily ends up being more expensive but with less food and quite pricey considering the standard of the restaurant there are plenty of better options in the same price range which offers as delicious or better food in a much nicer venue.

After having a very satisfying meal in Yauatcha Soho, we decided to try the City branch. We went for the Supreme Saturdays deal. The food was great, especially venison puff and roasted duck puff. Great lively atmosphere. Could not fault a single thing.

Food was good but was not one of the better experience. Siulongbao had a thicker top than ususal. The steam dimsums were like warm, especially the cheongfun.

We expected the price, but the service was lacking. Had to ask for water top-up repeatedly. Had to request small spoons which should come as standard when you order siulongbao

Food was good, atmosphere good (a bit worried it would be quiet on a Sunday but it was reasonably lively but not loud), and while there was a bit of confusion with who ordered what, the service was good too

Apart from the fact that although one can come to dine here on Sunday from 11 am, alcoholic drinks are not served until 12.

The menu is rather limited unless Dim Sum is what you want.

The food however was good as was the service.

This was my fourth visit using the Supreme Saturday offer and although I can not fault the food and service it will likely be my last visit.

The restaurant which previously had always buzzed with a throng of people was quite thinly filled. Why you may wonder as the Saturday deal was incredible...... It's because the price has increased and the last cocktail has been removed from the offer. The service at the table too seemed to be not quite to the standard which we had previously enjoyed. But I must stress the gentleman who showed us to our table and the bar tender for our first cocktail were impeccable in their manners and service.

We did have a second cocktail before the meal and enjoyed a coffee after so were not just out for a 'deal's.

The food was amazing. It was a bit noisy so couldn't hear or understand the staff very well but managed to get the correct food and had a great time in the process with my friends. It was my friends birthday which i noted in my booking and they make it special with the presentation of her dessert, so thank you for that. Drinks are however very expensive!!

Unfortunately the evening started off poorly when we were told they would get our table ready and then we were sat at the bar for around 45 minutes having been forgotten about.

They did apologise profusely and stated that they would pay for our drinks that we had had at the bar. We were seated immediately after we had made them aware of what had happened and once we had been seated the service was impeccable, food was excellent and at the end of the night we had a complete flip as to how we had felt before being seated.

Good food. Good service. Nice atmosphere - fancy. The staff kindly noted it was a birthday occasion and brought a small dessert with a candle and the words 'Happy Birthday' written on the plate. Would recommend for those who do not mind spending a lot of money. However, if you are looking for good value for money, this might not be the place for you.

Excellent greeting from the front to going upstairs and being seated. Table was booked for 5:30 and we were there at least 20 mins early but didn’t have to wait to be seated. However to place an order took a little longer and had to look around from our seats until someone came over, but after that the service was on point and it was brilliant. It was my partners birthday and when booking the table I added a note for them which they acknowledged through confirming my booking and as well as following through which was great.

Got off to a poor start this time. Shown to a dark corner table up against a wall. Then taken to the window seat I had asked for. Very slow to take our order, and then brought food before we had received our cocktails. Once the maitre d got himself together, things got back to normal. Super Saturdays are indeed super. Menu changes little, but is always delicious. They've cancelled the after dinner cocktails now, but the £52 menu is still wonderful.
We ordered a second bottle of the house wine which comes with the meal, without checking the price. Ouch! £37:00. Also a 13% service charge, which with 2 espressos bumped our meal for 3 to £225.
Super Saturdays are for special occasions.

Great food, always deliver on food and service!
1£ added « optional » donation is most enjoying. If you decline it they have to redo the bill which puts you in an ackward position.
A sort of forced donation. Totally unnecessary !
