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.

The Taste of Yauatcha menu is designed for two people to share and is offered from Monday to Thursday between 2pm and 6pm for £28.88.

The restaurant is very beautiful and the staff very kind. The food is perfect to share and very tasty. Negative points would be the small space between the tables. Our table was in front of the staff table which was a little bit uncorfortable. Also, prices generally speaking were OK but wine was excesivelly expensive. However, the experience so far was very good.

Divine as always! Love the ambience - relaxed and cool! Every mouthful is pleasurable, bursting in flavours and whilst familiar yet surprises every time. Eating consistently great food in a familiar restaurant is like turning to the warm cosiness of the blanket by your couch that you turn to...

We had a great time last Saturday at Yauatcha- the food and cocktails were fantastic. The design of the restaurant is enchanting, combining both modern and traditional Chinese elements. The service was impeccable with very friendly staff.
The only thing I would say is that it is reasonably expensive and that it can be quite noisy, because of how busy it is.

Extremely pricy, the music was too loud, to the point where it is uncomfortable to have a quiet conversation.
The desserts are the best the restaurant offers.

My wife has a MSG intolerance and we were advised that nearly all the dishes have added MSG. The waiter though was very helpful in identifying the small number of appropriate dishes. Very noisy with guests outshouting each other.

Very special Daddy&Doughter working night out... After a very important meeting we needed to relax and enjoy our free time in London. We have been suggested to go to Yauatcha by a friend and thanked her so much. Couldn't stop having the crispy duck: it was the yummiest thing ever. Thanks to Roberta for the precious suggestion and for the exquisite service. We will come back for sure next time we'll be in London!!

Efficient kitchen. Outstanding food from the chefs as usual. Shame about frontline staff.
I ordered tea and a glass of tap water. Tap water never arrived.
Food from kitchen arrived before the pickles and sauces.
Had to ask for the bill twice. Also tried catching someone’s eye to request for the bill. The girl who shows people to the tables saw me but ignored me. Got up and went to someone at the machine to request it in the end.
I had a doggie bag to take back my leftovers. Collected it at the front desk. Got given someone’s leftovers instead. I only realised it when I had left the restaurant for abt 10 minutes. Went straight back and requested for the right bag. The girl just took the bag back and handed me my correct bag. I’m slightly concerned abt this. So I could have poisoned someone’s leftovers and handed it back to the restaurant and it’d go back to the rightful owner? Not that I had done so but the current procedure/attitude of the staff leaves much to be desired. I’d rather that they give me an empty box and I pack it myself! Extremely poor shoddy service overall. Food from the kitchen was excellent though.

Yauatcha is always a good choice. If you want to get a feel for their cuisine try one of their menus, they offer a good choice of dishes. Make sure to try the venison puff, it's delicious! The bill will quickly get pricy-ish if you go for their cocktails or several drinks, but it is possible to get a great dinner for a reasonable price. One of my go-to restaurants in London!

I should first start off by saying that I prefer Yauatcha in Broadgate Circle. It has more space, feels less enclosed and tight and the service was far superior. The food at both establishments is fantastic and second to none for elegant Chinese cusine in London. The final act as well is the desserts which are sublime. Soho was a very loud and boisterous atmosphere, where Broadgate is a more elegant form of restaurant ambience. Would I visit the Soho location again, no. Would I visit the Broadgate location again, in a heartbeat yes I would.

fantastic place. I did not like that we had commercial water brought to the table without being asked if we wanted tap water. Also I find absurd paying £4.40 for 750ml of water.
Other than that I was a awesome experience.

This booking was for my daughter aged 17 and her friend as a treat after a theatre trip. The staff offered them water at the table with their food whilst they ate, but didn’t tell them it wasn’t free. At the end of the meal the bill for water was £17 which is disgraceful. For dim sum and water with service the bill came to £80.

I am a big supporter of Yauatcha and use you at least once a month between Bradwick st and City so I’m disappointed you took advantage of the girls like this

Really appreciated the portion sizes and attention to detail in every meal. I thought we could have used a little more guidance as far as ordering went as we under ordered, which is a first as far as Chinese food dining goes! I would love to come back now that I know how to navigate the menu! Would recommend.

Had been to this restaurant once before and found it a pleasant experience, this time it was very busy on a Saturday evening, and I felt the standard of service and the food suffered from this. The vegetarian menu did seem limited and the whole table were not impressed by the taste and texture of the vegetarian duck.

My favourite dimsum restaurant in London. Modern pan asian dimsum. Inventive, creative, delicious. Good service, lively restaurant. Great cocktails. But really it's all about the food. Beautiful desserts too. Not cheap but very much worth it. A cut above the rest. You need to book.
