I have loved and loathed Yautacha and have considered it one of my favourite places to indulge.
The food is excellent and i always come away thinking i've had something very special. Im not a huge dim sum lover myself but the selection on offer changed my thoughts on this. I've tended to go for the crispy lamb in the past but companions have loved the venison dim sum with a passion. I also love how they have the tea house link to it so i can also indulge in a lovely beautifully presented cake on show in the window. In the past, i've always neglected desserts at Chinese restaurants but Yautacha is somewhere where you can't say no. Ill certainly be giving vouchers to friends for afternoon tea there, just to experience the indulgence on offer!
Decor should be mentioned as the downstairs is stunning – like Busaba Ethai but more moody lighting. I'd never sat downstairs before but i realise now it's the place to be if you have a few friends with you.
The only big point i have to make is the service – aside from maybe one person ive been served by, the service has been very poor. I've had the same feedback from several friends who have been completely put off by table turning or rude snobbish staff. I haven't had such a worst case scenario but i have had offhandish people serving who do make you feel very unimportant and do tend to put you off rebooking and on one occasion has tended to demand the service charge be paid when the service was pretty poor.
At the moment though, im in a ‘love it’ stage and as with most people in love, a bit of a sucker for it so will still go back – certainly very highly recommended!
