Great food and great customer service. One of my favourite!
I am a regular to Yauatcha, but my last visit was terrible. Grumpy waiter, too busy to take orders, then once you finally make the order not all the food arrives. Dim Sum was cold. Probably one of my worst visits in a long time. A shame as this used to be a great experience.
The restaurant ambience is quite dark. We knew the menu was pricey before we booked. Saying that the food is very flavoursome and the staff are friendly and attentive.
A family lunch that did not disappoint. The food was exemplary and lots of it. The service was very good and the staff were all very welcoming and friendly, including the gentleman charged with taking temperatures as you enter. My only criticism is that the tables seemed a bit too close to each-other (from a corona perspective). Will definitely return very soon and HIGHLY recommend. One of the best meals I’ve had in a long time
The place was quite empty due to the global pandemic which was actually nice as we have been few times and it was very noisy. This time it was pleasant and we were able to have a conversation.
We got seated at a table but been asked (in a very clumsy way by a lovely waiter) to change table as a lady sitting behind us was very uncomfortable having people 2meters away from her. We got moved somewhere else but as people were starting to arrive, we ended being surrounded and social distancing wasn't respected.
The food arrived quickly but wasn't very warm and as good as I remembered. Good thing was we got asked if we wanted to take away our left overs.
It is a bit overpriced for a few dumplings and sparkling water.
I was a big fan before but I found that the experience wasn't as great as when I came last in March.
I went years ago and I loved it but when we went Saturday it has changed a lot.....very loud and underneath masks makes it very hard to hear people. We were left at the door not knowing what to do, We got given the wrong food and we sat for quite a while without being noticed. Things weren’t explained very well at all!
Service was very appalling and really put a dampener on our night. We were rushed out at 9.50 and starters came at different times took over an hour for mains to come and were rushed to eat.
We went to use the restroom following our meal. We were then demanded to leave whilst using the restroom by a male barging into the ladies room absoloutely awful and unprofessional.
Don’t waste your money here !
Fantastic service by Sergio - great food and wine - always a favourite. Excellent Covid Safe practice when dealing with customers. Thus is one of my favourite restaurants in London the food is on another level - thank you
Really enjoyed our evening & food was rather good. Only disappointment was the gluten free options were very limited. Great atmosphere and would come again.
Amazing food and beautiful place in Central, the menus available are great value as well, it was hard to finish everything though !
My main course was overcooked with the chicken tough and tasteless. The price of water was extortionate and the service indifferent.
I went to the restaurant anticipating a great meal and came away thoroughly dissatisfied with the fare I was served.
The finest quality food. I have never had a dish that I did not like. A fabulous culinary experience.
Still the best place in London for dim sum. Not cheap but you get what you pay for.
I’ve always been a huge Yauatcha fan. I’ve celebrated birthdays, anniversaries, every days at Yauatcha and what made me return was the ambiance and the food.
I was especially keen to celebrate my birthday in a restaurant during these tough times to help out.
However as a vegetarian I was so disappointed with the choices, I might never return again.
ALL bar one option had mushrooms in them. How very unadventurous and single minded. Almost like a menu put together by someone who not only isn’t vegetarian, but quite obviously has no imagination. I understand the need for a limited menu during COVID-19 times, but please don’t become mediocre and unimaginative. Have faith, times will get better and your customers will return. Don’t serve up such a uninspired limited menu that they might never return.
Wishing the team safety and good health. We will all come out of this. Soon.
Yauatcha was my favourite London restaurant and some aspects are still good. But similar to another review we had plates taken seconds after taking a mouthful, strange as it was almost empty. The lunchtime deal was good £29 including glass of champagne but little touches such as only 1 macaroon for desert each and the green tea being charged to refill (not previous policy), take the shine off.
Their crispy duck still takes some beating though.
Food really excellent but not cheap.
Waiters not keeping their distance.
Menu choices complicated
Fine cuisine in the modern neo-Chinese style. Excellent dim sum at the time we ate (14.00), and subtle green jasmine tea. Attentive (but not over-enthusiastic) service. Reasonable distancing, although the table alongside us was a little close. Noisy background music required slightly raised voices when ordering, and in conversation.
The service was poor. It was a struggle to get any sort of service. Very disappointed seeing as I have been coming for almost a decade
Fantastic food, drinks and atmosphere. The staff are amazing. They looked after us incredible well!
We were there to celebrate birthday - food was amazing as always, however the interior of the restaurant wasn’t great as I expected. I’d only been to the City one which looks nicer, I wasn’t sure if it’s because COVID the restaurant made some changes to the layout and decoration, but we were sitting on the ground floor which looks like a waiting area rather than actual restaurant, the table wasn’t comfortable and lighting wasn’t nice. It wasn’t great experience for a special occasion. However we were still happy with the food and service.
Poor service despite lots of people moving around. Restaurant feels past it’s prime. Food was fine but not great.
The food was great especially the crispy duck!!! !!
Tried the explore menu. Too many dishes required to pay an additional price; the dim sums were fine, but the staple dishes like fried rice and noodles were not worth it.
The best and most varied dim sum in London. Great cocktails, too.
Food good as always but found the staff very slow and not very friendly
The food was amazing and we had a good waiter he was so lovely
We went for Sunday lunch. The food was extremely good. We had 4 dim sum between 2 of us to start with, which was plenty as they do vary in size between 3 pieces and 10 pieces. Then 2 mains, some steamed vegetables and egg fried rice. We were pleasantly full and had no room for the desserts, which looked so good.
Yauatcha has been my favourite restaurant for over 8 years, but I will now never go back. The consistency was always there, but this time I knew things had changed. The recipes and quality of ingredients had changed and were super disappointing.
The food and the ambience never disappoint me! Outstanding food, everything is always delicious. Service is good sometimes they are really busy it takes longer for drinks. Cocktails are some of the best I ever tasted. Everyone is really nice
This restaurant has changed significantly in the few years since I last visited. The quality of food has plummeted yet the price has stayed the same. Worse than my favourite local Chinese takeaway at triple the cost. Extremely disappointed in the lack of social distancing and mask adherence by the staff despite the appearance of following guidelines with temperature test and app scanning on entry. Server would pull his mask off his face and lean over to talk to me as the music was so loud. Another hakkasan rip off it seems; concerned with making money over providing a quality experience.
Food was good overall, but we the soft shell crab dish should have been crispy which inspite of sending it back came back a little soggy.... There was no social distancing being observed within the restaurant, tables are usually very close together at Yauatcha and unfortunately this was not changed to make the venue covid secure...
Last time we visited Yauatcha was 2015 when it held Michelin star.
Restaurant has changed somewhat since then, food was good but restaurant standard inside had gone down which is disappointing
They’ve hiked up the prices again.
Unless you are feeling charitable or someone else is paying the bill avoid this restaurant. You are not only paying for the meal and service you get, it seems you are also covering the cost of lost revenue from the pandemic. Fixed menu is full of add in prices, the so-called dessert is a thumb sized joke of a tester the supermarkets give out while trying out new products. The highlight of the food was baby pakchoi. The rest was mediocre. The three women sitting next to us were carefree about their loudness and no one bothered to warn them.
Extremely interesting food.
I needed to choose a place to celebrate two birthdays and graduations in these difficult times, and this restaurant was exceptional. The food was delicious and the drinks were perfect.
Always a great meal. Everything was cooked brilliantly and the set menus allow for a lot of small dishes.
Absolutely fantastic food, will definitely go again. Superb 👍🏼
Truly authentic and high quality Cantonese dimsum in a modern restaurant setting. Great service too.
