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.

Best Cheung Fun and best Sweet and Sour pork I have ever tasted. Great dim sum too.

Very attentive service and great ambience on the terrace. Nothing was too much trouble.

Dreadful service as always. I come there since 5 years and they still didn’t notice that. You order a bottle of sake, they forget to serve it to you. Why exactly did you pay 50 for a bottle? After you finish food they say, oh, you still have half a bottle. Food comes slowly for group of 4. The manager comes every time to apologize and push some sweets on you even after you said explicitly you don’t want it. They just badly don’t want to take anything off the bill given how bad the service is they would need to give up half or their revenue.

Last time they gave me a wrong bill three times

The time before they served main course in different time and said it’s because they have two kitchens as it was something we cared for.

I brought so many new clients there. It this must stop, I don’t feel like being ashamed of places I invite people to.

The service is really nice and polite, they are very attentive. However, I found it overprice for what it is. We tried the selection of dumplings, which were average. My favorite dish was probably the half fried crab but even that I found overpriced. The restaurant itself is in the middle of a square surrounded by offices so it's also not a nice locations, a very cold atmosphere. The only good think was the service.

I have been going to Yauatcha for years now. From the days where they only had one restaurant in Soho.
I have noticed over the years that the service in this restaurant has gone downhill. This is before Covid-19, it has been a slow but noticeable decline in the quality of service.
The food is good, I will keep going, but more as a casual meal out than a quality experience.

It’s absolutely as good as it always was! Food and service is excellent
Tables were spaced apart and when customers left there was a thorough clean
The down side was it seems they have really inflated their prices! We noticed such a difference and only one of us had a glass of alcohol!

Tried a £40 set menu which was a little bit of everything. If you do that in a group you can each have your own main and try even more. Food was excellent. We will return.

Good food and ok service. Had to keep asking for our wine glasses to be topped up. Very overpriced wine list. I normally pay £17.50 for a bottle for 2018 Chardonnay Meerlust Stellenbosch. They are charging an outrageous £64! Also the restaurant is so huge there is little atmosphere, and the toilets are at the far end, so put on comfy walking shoes for the trek.

We took advantage of the weekend lunch deal - it was excellent value as we had plenty of food and drinks! Staff were very polite and attentive.

Would recommend this restaurant highly!

Booked ahead, shown up 20 mins early to drink at the bar beforehand. Sat down and told our table is no longer available and there's nothing they can do. Not even an apology. Then asked why were sat at the bar when we have a table by a different staff member, very confusing and embarrassing. Great food but very unorganised, ruined our birthday celebration tbh.
