The food was normal, nothing special the dim sum is the only thing that is good! The service is horrible, one waitress for the entire restaurant with bad attitude. It is amazing that they bring coffee and desserts to your table when there are still...More

I looked up “best dim sum in Houston” and Yauatcha came up. Since it was so close, I thought I would give it a try. I heard parking was complicated, so I took an Uber. I was happy that I did! The place was hopping,...More

The food and service were very good but I feel we got ripped off. For one order of Peking Duck the price was an unbelievable $118. Our server recommended it without mentioning the price. We later regretted not asking. We complained about the outrageous price...More

The cons: limited dim sum options, it's not really even dim-sum in the traditional sense. It's more "tapas sized chinese". Unpredictable...More

I was expecting more! I’d say 5 stars for the presentation and service but just 3 stars for the food. We stopped by for brunch today with no reservation, there was no wait and the restaurant was practically empty. We went with 5 small dishes...More

We first went to Yauatcha in London, so we decided to try it in Houston as well. We went for lunch and had a fantastic experience. Great food and great service.

I can see why they’re famous for their dim sum—it’s amazingly flavorful and beautifully presented. I shared a few entrees with a group; the chili prawns were cooked well with a good texture. The sirloin stir fry was underwhelming. The truffled pork belly was melt-in-your-mouth...More
