Square Meal Review of Yum Cha ?

While most dim sum joints only serve dumplings until late afternoon, here the snacks are available through the day & until last orders at night. We’ve never been hugely impressed by the quality, but the constant stream of diners suggests that there are many who are. At least there’s plenty of choice, from fried squid cake to crispy chicken wontons by way of steamed Szechuan pork dumplings, prawn croquettes & skewered beef balls. The range of tea (‘yum cha’ literally means ‘drink tea’) is not quite as extensive, but throws up some floral beauties including dried chrysanthemum. A menu featuring the standard array of Cantonese dishes is also available – fill up on substantial noodle & rice dishes before flexing your vocal cords in one of four karaoke rooms.

    We originally came to this restaurant just for tea but then decided to have some dim sum as well. It has a nice location opposite the Stables Market in Camden.

    There was not a great range of vegetarian steamed dim sum but we did have the vegetarian Thai spring rolls. These were crispy and not at all oily. This made a change as spring rolls are normally seeping with oil.

    We were given quite a big portion of crispy seaweed. The steamed pork dim sum was very tasty and all the dipping sauces that came with the meal were really nice...
