Average experience - everything just felt really rough around the edges - service was basic - the music choice really odd - enjoyed the food but no real incentive to go back again.
Food was lovely, really enjoyed it but the set menu lacked a vegetarian option. The waitress had to check , and luckily they could oblige.
We had the set menu and it was very good value for money. The rest of the menu looked really exciting and I would definitely return to try some of the other dishes!
The food was amazing as always, especially the dessert. The waiter was kinda rude though and we had to ask for things at least twice. But overall, it was a good experience.
Highly overrated. The food we had (Chines New Year menu) was not very good - the dessert was probably the worst dish.
Overall overrated and overpriced.
Food was amazing, service was excellent. On the expensive side but worth every penny.
Everything was great! Strongly recommended
I must admit I don’t like to write a bad review but am a fraid to say it just wasn’t worth the money , me and my partner had the special Chinese New Year menu , the starters was lovely but they did forget one to which they relised and brought it about 10mins after we finished the others. I hadn’t finished it yet and one of our waitresses already started cleanering my partners plate and laying down mains which I don’t know about everyone else but to me its is a bit rude to start clearing the table if someone is still eating, the mains were not great, I think it lacked in a lot flavour and the dessert was okay. It was quite loud but I exspected that as it was Chinese New Year. The restaurant looked lovely tho and the rest of the service ( the bar , and being seated ) was brilliant. But am afraid for the £160 bill including an service charge which was around £18 I was a bit Disappointed as I wanted a really special night for my partner and I.
The venison puffs and duck salad are amazing.
Great restaurant, food perfect, service good but not great.
Fabulous food with great service. A great way to celebrate the Chinese New Year.
Impeccable service. It was pouring outside on Chinese New Year and the hostess took pity on us and allowed us in 45 minutes early. The service went from good to great with nothing being too much trouble......right down to children's chop-sticks. I'm happy to say that this place seems to have matured from "hot" London restaurant into - gradually - an older statesman of the restaurant scene. A bit of an institution. Great food and......we even got our celeb-hit as we were sat next to Christian Bale. Our kids couldn't quite believe how much Batman likes Dim Sum.
Great dinner, I do not miss the opportunity every time I come to London
Weird discrepancy between quite refined food and the vibe of happy hour at the Travelodge. I used to like this place it was fun, but stylish. Now it’s just naf. The food still quite nice but hard to enjoy given the atmosphere.
Excellent dim sum, great embrace and wonderful services
Overall very good
Professional and well run.
The good exceeded my expectations, and the dim sum were of very high quality. Too often dim sum are leaden and dull. These are not.
It was a nice place - but I think I have better dim sum else where.
Group of friends on a weekend away. The food was excellent - interesting, delicious and well presented. The welcome staff were lovely but the staff in the restaurant itself were off hand and I didn’t feel very helpful or interested. They were however to give them credit good at checking for allergies as a member of the group had an allergy. The tables are low to sit at but the restaurant is beautiful and well thought out.
Overall thoroughly recommend the food!
The food is good as usual, service is also okay. Just the decor is getting old, and the space is quite crowded. People are all talking loud, it gets a bit annoying after a while. The music is also quite loud, I think that is why people are talking loud, cuz they have to.
But overall food is good as usual.
Our waiter Roshan is the best!
I have dined here many times and on this occasion the service felt slow. The bill was incorrect twice but the staff were friendly. More gluten-free options are required, as all Yauatcha could offer my guest was Vegetable Fried Rice.
Roshan was very sweet & helpful. He attended to all our needs & anticipated them as well.
Very good service!
A bit pricey x food was average x more for younger age
The food is not so great. We had the menu for the new chinese year, the rice was very sticky and sweet and we couldn’t eat it, the fried rolls weren’t very nice and overall not so great food. The only thing we like was the desert. The price doesn’t reflect quality at all. In top of this they asked us to release the table before 2hrs because there were others waiting. Overall extremely disappointed. It supposed to be a great experience
It was lovely, our only issue was that the table and chairs were so low, we were all cleaning!
pricey, small portions - would not recommend it
we were allocated the downstair floor
Hadn't been here for at least 12 years but really enjoyed the experience
One of my fav restaurants in London and it’s a cool joint without the snobbiness you get in other places full of posers and wannabes, which includes the staff.
The squid, dim sum and the desserts are always on point.
I can’t fault this place but the ONLY thing is the MINOR fly problems on the basement floor which really needs to be sorted!!!
We came for a Chinese New Year lunch .
Food was exquisite , delicious .
Service exceptional. 10/10
A great experience
Food was amazing and the suggestions of the cocktails from the person who took our orders were amazing.
Just a suggestion the waiter should ask if we have been here before and explain the concept, which wasn’t done, luckily I have been there before so could explained my guest.
Food was really good quality. All the house specialty items were great! I gave it 4 out of 5 for food because some dishes were fabulous and others were pretty plain. (Ie. CNY sticky rice with sausage and some of the dumplings were not as tasty as others). Would definitely recommend it to friends and be back.
A really fantastic restaurant. The food is great, the staff very attentive and the restaurant setting is perfect for the cuisine.
for the 3th time in a row, I had an amazing experience
very noisy, too crouded and feels like one big mess. workers are to busy to hand a good service, thefore although the food is good - we did not enjoy.
Scrummy dim sum which is a cut above the run of the mill stuff available at most Chinese restaurants. Delicious alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails. It's busy but service is good. I've enjoyed every visit.
The booking was made at 8pm, but waited 20 mins for the seats. The restaurant is very busy, staff are not enough. We asked several questions but no one get back to us. And waited for 10 minutes for the dessert menu. Overall food are very nice, but the service is not good as a fine dinning restaurant.
The food is just wonderful and almost every dish was a delight. It is a busy restaurant so the service is efficient rather than engaged. Not the cheapest but I cant fault the food so all over a very good experience.
The service wasn’t so good and to be honest I expected more of the food
Cocktails were great but that’s all
The food is really very good. The service is ok but one would expect better from a restaurant fetching these prices. The ambience is far too loud (very loud club music) to be able to enjoy any form of conversation.
We went to Yauatcha to celebrate our daughter's 18th birthday. The food was fantastic. Our waiter, Roshan, was so helpful in explaining the menu to us and made our time very special - Thank you!
Food was great but other than our main server the rest of the staff was very clumsy
