Description: Yauatcha Soho is a Chinese dim sum teahouse in the heart of Soho and part of the Hakkasan group, offering an all day grazing experience. Launched in 2004, Yauatcha gained immediate critical acclaim and received its Michelin star within a year of opening which it continues to maintain. Yauatcha provides a unique dining experience, offering authentic dim sum with a contemporary influence. The renowned menu includes a wide selection of dim sum and a list of over 60 types of tea. The design by Christian Liagre offers full view of the kitchen allowing passers by to witness the preparation of the expertly made dishes. Spread over two floors, the 160 cover restaurant offers a light environment on the ground floor, emulating the vibrant 'chatter shop' atmosphere of a traditional dim sum eatery in Hong Kong. Its subterranean level offers deep booths and low lighting, providing a captivating dining space for evening.

My third time here. As usual good food and nice atmosphere. But why a Michelin star I wonder. The food is good, but nothing special. The service is normal, some tables offer a horrible view over the kitchen and no comfort. The bar is very very good.
Still way better than terrible Hakkasan!!!

I have been with friends on many occasions.
The cocktails are to die for and the miniature desserts outstanding.
Food is fresh and healthy dim sum in a soft lit environment.
Will always go back for more. Really is impressive!!

One of the best dim sums I have ever tasted in London.

Almost on par with Hong Kong's Sheraton hotel/ Ritz Carlton ( obviously lacking in view and grandeur compared to the hotels).

But food was absolutely spot on and service was great. Ended up having a 4 hour lunch dim sum here with friends!!

Highly recommended!!

I came here for my birthday, the food and service was good. My favourite part was dessert, there's so many cakes to choose.
