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.

Le service est tellement en deçà des attentes, surtout vu le prix, qu’il n’on même pas été capables de s’excuser d’avoir mis deux fois les 4 menus sur l’addition.
Entrées délicieuses, cocktails aussi, reste décevant.
Musique beaucoup trop forte et impossible à faire baisser.

Niestety, jak dla mnie restauracja mocno przereklamowana. Jedzenie mocno przeciętne. A serwis również słaby. Po pierwsze podają wszystko nierówno. W dobrej klasy restauracji powinno otrzymywać się dania jednocześnie, wszyscy obecni przy stole. Po wtóre dania wchodzą bez oczekiwanie na skończenie tego co już zostało wcześniej podane. Bałagan. Nie mówiąc już tu o słabej recepcji. Co do dań dimsum z krewetką - tłusty, choć krewetka dobrej jakości. Jednak mało jadalny. Kaczka sztandarowe danie - sucha, bez wyrazu, słaba. Kurczak na styl tajski bardziej sprawiał wrażenie wymazanego w sosie BBQ niż tajskim. Mam wrażenie, że po pierwszych sukcesach restauracja zaczęła iść na masówkę i odbija się to na jakości.

Food was fantastic and was served in a timely manner. However, the waiters were not very friendly and we were asked to show our IDs multiple times and doubted our legality when ordering drinks.

Very hot restaurant which was uncomfortable, service mediocre. Felt it was very overpriced, food was very good and tasty but felt not worth the money. We had the £60 per person meal, disappointed with the main dish of crispy squid, needed to be a dish with sauce i think instead of dry. Would say only worth £30-40pp.

I’ve been here many times before, recently it seems the food standards have dropped. Food was greasy, the venison puffs which are usually amazing were far too sweet. Disappointing that it seems to have dropped off.

I had some issues with my reservation (on my end) and the staff were completely flexible and accommodating. They checked in again later in the evening to ensure everything had been taken care of. Even in a busy restaurant, they took the extra effort to ensure our experience was wonderful.

Fairly regular visitors to Yauatcha. Food excellent as always. Had two servers for our meal. The second, female was much friendlier and helpful than the first male one.

Cocktails were amazing - overall a thoroughly pleasant experience.

They gave us a table in the basement room, where the noise level was really bad and the tables felt very close.
Having enjoyed our dinner here 4 years ago (ground level room), I was anticipating the same, but this time it was a pricey disappointment.

Nice place with tasty food! We loved the variety of dim sum and there were plenty of vegetarians options. Cocktails were great too. It is quite expensive though and the music was a bit too loud for us but overall we had a good time and I would recommend this place.

Had a fantastic experience on Friday evening the food was excellent the staff were attentive and slick. The overall experience was superb. It is a little more costly than other places but it is well worth it and is to be expected at a restaurant. Owning a hotel it was lovely to sit back and enjoy the experience. I will be returning with my children next time as they were hugely envious when they saw the photos.

Underwhelming - I've previously been to Yautcha City, and had a decent experience, but this was poor. One member of the party had a seafood allergy, and the serving staff were uninterested in trying to help, and were dismissive. Conflicting advice about which dishes contained problematic ingredients, no attempt to see what they could do to improve things "just the vegetarian options", and we were generally made to feel awkward. At the price point, the general disinterest in our experience and overall attitude is unacceptable. We won't return.

Service wasn’t great. The waiter just stared at us and waited for us to order, No hello, no recommendations, no explanation of the menu. The food was decent but not amazing. The squid was strange, it’s looked like someone ha dumped a box of cornflakes on it. The highlight however was the desserts. They were great.

The Soho branch unfortunately has become subpar, in both service and food in comparison to my previous visits and their branch in the City. The staff are not attentive, and there is no attention to detail considering this is considered as 'fine dining', with their premium prices.

Normally the service is good but this time we went and they completely ignored us, served main courses before starters. Took 30 minutes for us to get our bill. It’s like we weren’t there for them.
