“Nice spot for people watching but food is hit and miss...”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

The last time we ate here we got a little table outside which is great for people watching during the week as camden is full of interesting people. The service was very slow but they were super busy as it was dinner time. They do a good dim sum offer during the week but none of the food is very tasy

“Delivered our food to someone else”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

Delivered our food to random punters in a pub and didn't bother to phone us when they couldn't find our address. We're starving we've been waiting an hour and a half for food.

“Excellent dim sums!”
Reviewed August 5, 2012 via mobile

Maybe best value in London, it is simple restaurant but if all you look for is a good and cheap platter of dim sum near camden, this is the place to go!

“Yum Cha is top notch!”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

We made reservations for lunch on a Saturday at 12. We were the first customers to the restaurant. We were looking for good, but cheap dim sum and we certainly found it. We tried a few dumpings, with the chive dumplings being the highlight. We also had some of the custard filled buns. The pork and prawn shumai were quite nice as well. I ordered a cheung fun with pork thinking it was a bun, but it was still tasty! The wait staff was nice enough and the jasmine tea was quite good. I literally burned the top of my mouth off, but that was my own fault. I would certainly visit again. It was well worth it. £20 for 6 dishes and tea. Not bad at all!

“Excellent Dim Sum”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

Went to Yum Cha on a Saturday evening, was surprisingly quiet but were really impressed. Staff were helpful and advised us on what was good to order. Food arrived quickly and was really lovely - good choice of dishes on the menu, all cooked really well and reasonably priced. Overall very impressed as was our first experience of Dim Sum and would definitely go again!
