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.

This place was TERRIBLE! It came highly recommended, and I adore fancy Chinese food, but to me, everything was gummy feeling and tasted pretty much the same. The chairs were uncomfortable, the service was slow and inattentive. I never really knew who to ask for anything. It was never clear who my server was. I did a sake trio, and the only roughy two. To the restaurants credit, the did take the sake and the dessert off my bill. I would personally never go back.

this is my favourite restaurant in London, recently though the service has not been as good. The waiter forgot a drinks order and one seemed more interested in looking at his phone than serving.

The restaurant itself looks beautiful and the service staff was friendly but the food was disappointing. We chose the Dim Sum menu - the duck salad was way too sweet, the fried squid super oily....the dessert was delicious though.

Welcome hostess was very unwelcoming and just not at all friendly. She guided us to the bar as our table was not ready yet. But there was no welcome or anything. Just a bad first impression

And in the way out not even a thank you and have a great evening from the host stand

Was charged £1 for a charity without knowing. I know it is a small amount but would be nice to be advised in advance versus being forced to donate. That should be voluntary

This is why the rating is just average

Good food but poor service. Staff instantly dismissed us as unable to afford the menu, I.e recommending the set menu 1 as it was the “cheapest”. No suggestions as to the food itself. Very corporate feel and not very attentive staff - had to ask for a drink 3 times and none was brought. We ordered most expensive set menu, spending c.£200 between two people only to be told we weren’t eating quick enough and that our time at the table was soon up (while we were eating the main course). When we asked to remove the service charge as a result the head waiter did not even ask us why/for any feedback which is very poor.

I came to have lunch alone. Because I was alone I asked to have a lunch menus but was refused. I was given an explanation that the lunch menu was for a party of two. I ended up paying 68 pounds for lunch instead of 28. Needless to say I felt very bad and feel that I was mistreated

The Dim Sum was delicious and the ambiance of the place was great. However, we were really let down by the service which is why my review is only 3 stars. Our server seemed annoyed to have to be serving us - he was short, dismissive and unaccommodating.

We were a group of 4 people and ordered a la carte from the Dim Sum menu. He informed us that 3 pieces came with each order. We asked if we could have 4 so each of us could try everything (and obviously we'd pay more) but he said it was not an option. 5 minutes later we saw the table next to us was receiving 4 pieces of everything. We politely pointed this out and asked why they were given the option and he said (again, seeming very annoyed) "Oh, well they ordered from the tasting menu". He didn't inform us of this when we ordered and showed zero interest in accommodating us. We were drinking water throughout the meal - the water glasses were very small and we would have to wait to have them re-filled. We asked him if we could just keep the water pitcher on the table and again, he said no. I have a hard time believing this was a restaurant policy. And if it is, it is a very unfriendly one.

Would have expected a little more from the standard of the food. Everything was presented nicely but lacking in flavour. However much worse was the atmosphere with very loud music. Overall impression is that of a money making machine and not necessary a culinary destination.
