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.

Great food. Exceptional desserts. Service was poor. We were downstairs and tucked on a small table to the left of the stairs, which was quite dark with not much atmosphere. Would recommend trying to sit upstairs or in the main part of the downstairs.

La comida exquisita, sabrosa y sorprendente!! El servicio ha dejado mucho que desear. Entre los dumplings y los platos principales hemos tenido que esperar casi media hora!!! Hemos tenido que quejarnos para que se dieran cuenta!! Nos han pedido disculpas y nos han invitado a los platos que faltaban por llegar y una ronda de cocktails!! Qué menos!!

I’ve been to Yauatcha 3 times now and on this my 4th visit will probably not go again. It had been a few years since my last visit and the crowd has descended into young spoilt instagrammers who thinks it’s ok to dress as if they’re at a backyard bbq rather than a nice restaurant. The atmosphere can only be described as a circus with children running around unchecked and wait staff that don’t know how to prioritise orders. We had ordered our food and had the menus whisked away (including the wine menu) before we had ordered any drinks. The dessert wine we ordered arrived once the dessert had been finished. But the biggest problem was that the air conditioning was ‘down’. The entire night was an uncomfortable sweat fest and made enjoying the food very difficult. The head waiter was a very nice gentleman who gave us a discount but only once we had asked to get the service removed.

Delicious food and really good value, especially for a Michelin starred place. The lychee martini was very tasty. It is quite loud but it gave a nice atmosphere for a special occasion. Would highly recommend it.

This was one of my favorite places for dim sum - food is great, but I must say I was disappointed with the service level - we were rushed to leave the table without any courtesies, while both tables next to us were free. Shame, as food was indeed great. But I generally value a place on the overall picture, so will think twice now about coming back.

Excellent food. Service a little slow to get going waited 40mins for drinks to arrive which put us under pressure to get through the meal for the show we had booked. Service improved after that. Main complaint - just to hot!! Air conditioning useless. Not surprised staff have to work slowly!!!
Food so good though, we will return - in winter!!

I’m a big fan of the food at Hakkasan which is part of the same group as Yautcha, but I find the service and attitude at Hakkasan really not great. For this reason I now always choose Yautcha and have to say the food is just as good if not better. The service was also very good, no snotty up themselves attitude with a limited 1.5 or 2 sitting where they ask you to have your dessert at the bar as they want the table back! The only criticism was the temperature in the restaurant which was on the warm side for a hot day outdoors. However will definitely go back! The food is superb!

Great creative food, impeccable and -for once in London- fast service! Only minuses: a bit too noisy downstairs and air conditioning a bit crazy as usual. Seriously, there was no need for a chilly wind on our heads. But for that, still worth a visit

Having visited the restaurant a couple of times before, we have decided to go there for their dessert menu, which is among the best options of dessert one could find in London, in our opinion.

Since it was our Anniversary we decided to make reservations at one of our favourite restaurants. It was Gay Pride, which meant that I had to walk from Oxford Street to Broadwick Street (and back) on crutches from the taxi. This was not the restaurant’s fault. Once we were seated, we had to wait 30 minutes to order cocktails. After we ordered cocktails, we were able to order food as usual. With the food order, the service returned to the usual excellent service. We did find that if we wanted another libation, we had to flag down our waiter. This is not the normal service one expects at Yauatcha.

Been many times before and loved it. The food was fabulous, but the service dreadful. Waited ages between courses. We were bored we waited so long. The place was so hot inside . We were told it was cooler downstairs but it was like an oven down there. The gin and tonic had no lemon and the beer was warm .

Came here for my bros birthday. Started out with a waitress (or maybe she was just the one who took our drink order) that was not helpful at all and pretty rude. Then our main waitress was amazing!! Very truthful in her recommendations and helpful. Got the hargow, xia long bao, scallop shumai, Duck, bok choy, chicken feet, pork belly spare ribs, and the red bean and pork roll. Everything was phenomenal expect for the duck. Maybe it is because I was expecting the texture to be more like a Peking duck (super juicy and tender). However this was not the case. It was actually quite dry and the exterior was extremely crunchy. I was very dissatisfied and let down by this. Not sure if we got a dry batch but it truly should have never been served.

Warm Friday night, we were yelling at each other over the music (seated on upper floor) and one of the party had to leave the restaurant to stand outside because of the heat. What a disappointment, we would have enjoyed the meal far more if we weren't so uncomfortable. The temporary AC issue that engineers were working on (per the waiter) clearly not true if I look at past reviews - shame, Yauatcha, you're not a cheap hole in the wall restaurant!

The food was good, andI would go back for the cocktails... but there are other more comfortable restaurants in London for the price that I won't be back in a hurry...
