We had lunch at Yauatcha and it was really good. The food is just amazing and innovative. The service is good but they need more attention and focus at the front desk. It looks a bit messy and not attentive. Otherwise, I would highly recommend it. Try to get a table downstairs.

My colleagues had raved about the crispy aromatic duck on previous occasions to the point that I was skeptical. I finally had the chance to try it and they were 100% correct. It is amazing - moist, flavorful, and completely addictive. While all the dim sum, rice, and other plates I tried at Yauatcha were quite good, the duck is... More

Having lunch with my family for my wife birthday. However the food was amazing nothing else comes close to this. A big shame on the greeting on the women in red dress as there don't smile or even talk to you as valued customer. There really need to have some training in talking to customers with a smile and just... More

Came for a birthday lunch for 6. We were 30mins late and we knew we only had the table for 2hrs total so were happy to leave at the designated time but we were reminded at least 5 times of this. Staff were fine, some weren't very warm and welcoming, particularly the lady on the front desk. I had noodles... More

Had dinner here with some work colleagues....worked out at £90 per head with drinks...and we didn't go mental on the booze. Had the set menu, very very tasty ...different quality and experience to Chinatown, service efficient , friendly and polite....often not true of service in Chinatown. Give it a go it's worth it.

Two reason for not frequenting this restaurant were due to 1) doggy bag is not allowed for leftover 2) tea are charged per pot without refill. During the recent visit, we were impressed with the standard of the dim sum although they are more expensive than those offered at the restaurants in the nearby Chinatown. The aubergine in spicy fish... More

Modern Chinese food doesn't get any better than this. We shared the Yauatcha signature menu for £55 each. It was a great meal, with a good selection of meets and vegetables. It doesn't include dessert though. I tried the Hakka cocktail, which was truly delicious. The German Pinot Noir red wine was also very good. For desert we tried the... More

The place is extremely noisy, with tables so close to one another that you can hear all the conversations of your neighbours. The food is good but with small portions and comparatively high price. The venison puffs were absolutely delicious but the rest was less memorable. The dessert is French style, not quite matching the rest of the menu.

We were impressed with the vegetarian options available on the menu - and everything we tried was amazing... We arrived a little early and had some drinks at the bar, the cocktails are pricey at £11 each and I didn't think they were as good as I have had elsewhere before... the bar is at the back upstairs and is...

Neighborhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
