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.

The food was tasty but the dishes we chose turned out to be fried which wasn’t clear from the menu. Would ask the waiter to clarify next time.

Absolutely delicious and wonderful service as well. We had one member of the group with a prawn allergy and the staff went over and above to make sure they knew what might have prawns in it, and to ensure that they had enough options to eat and be satisfied.

Food was really delicious. The venison puffs, spicy pork dumplings and fried chilli squid were probably the biggest highlights and the macarons for after were also delicious.

Wonderful for Sunday lunch ! The dumpling selection is perfect and the beef in black bean sauce is highly recommended. We will be back soon.

Food is nice, service could be better, slow but it was a Friday night, still, you would expect better from a restaurant of this level.
Worst thing was the complete lack of gluten free dishes, my wife, coeliac, but choose between only two dishes. Not acceptable free a restaurant in central London and in this price bracket. Chef should pay more attention to those less fortunate that have allergies

It is a great place to visit - a bit on the pricier end, but definitely would recommend and come back as well. For special occasions. Keep the Prawn toast coming.

We had to have a quick dinner before our theatre show. The staff guided us through the menu and ensured our food arrived to give us ample time before our show.

Been coming for a while now and as usual the food was incredible. The fried squid with oatmeal was just right this time, and again everything else was delicious. Service was a little slow compared to normal, I had booked a table for 2 at 9.15pm a week ago and arrived 5-10 mins early. My friend and I were told the table was not ready just yet and that we could wait at the bar. Waited til 9.30pm before finally asking a waiter whether the table would be ready soon and he immediately took us to the table.
Our waiter handed us menus and said he would bring some still water but took another 15 mins to come back till we again finally had to ask whether we could order and get some water as we had waited a long time now and we were hungry.
From that point the service was quicker, will be coming back of course and assume the delay in service was because it was a busy night and/or because some staff were new.

I’ve always been a bog fan of Yauatcha. I still love the food in there and desserts are divine, however the service really let me down. There’s no sommelier anymore, the waiter was a bit rushy and after we ordered the plates arrived literally 2 minutes later, all together. It seemed like the dishes were ready and heated up in the microwave. Overall not the usual good experience. I will think twice next time I want to go back. Hakkasan group should go back to the quality they used to have.

Food is great but it is super expensive with quite small portions. There are other places that also do great dim-sum but not as expensive. I think it's good for business lunch or potentially a special occasion
