SquareMeal Review of Yauatcha Soho

gold award


SquareMeal London Hot 100 2018“Still incredible after all these years”, ultra-cool Yauatcha Soho stakes its claim with “smart, snappy decor” and an inviting patisserie bar out front. The trademark blue-glass frontage gives way to a frenetic grey-toned room, while a glowing fish tank, candlelit tables and twinkling “night sky” lights await diners who descend to the “stunning” brick-lined basement. Wherever you sit, expect ultra-professional service, but with lots of winning smiles. The comprehensive menu is populated by “steamed to perfection” dumplings (try the edamame and truffle beauties) and other luxe Chinese ideas such as jasmine tea-smoked ribs and venison puffs – described by one salivating fan as “the sweetest, most crumbly piece of heaven”. Elsewhere, bigger items ranging from spicy steamed sea bass with pickled chilli or ‘lunar’ chicken hotpot with cured pork to homemade spinach tofu with shimejii mushrooms and baby asparagus are also in demand. “Spectacular-looking” chocolates, macarons and petits gateaux such as a ‘tropical’ dome of coconut dacquoise, passion fruit and pineapple get rave reviews, while a swanky line-up of classy wines, teas, sakés and killer cocktails completes Yauatcha Soho’s winning Michelin-starred package.

We decided to try the 'taste of Yauatcha' menu before a night at the theatre as it seemed very good value for money in a sea of good value pre theatre menus in the area. The setting is stunning with a dark interior flickering with candles and a twinkling night sky. The fish tank bar gives the restaurant a young, modern vibe. The service was impeccable, the kind of service you would get in a stuffy, Michelin starred restaurant, but with a friendly smile. The dim sum is to die for. Steamed to perfection, there is a lovely variety included in the deal with prawns, scallops, pumpkin and mushrooms. The venison puff is the sweetest, most crumbly piece of heaven! Definitely the best value for money at £30 for two people. I would highly recommend it!

Smart, snappy modern décor. Noisy. Low-level seats and tables a novelty. Great fishtank - gives you something to watch while you wait and wait. Food good, when and if you get it. Plenty of staff, but not sure what was going on. They seemed sullen, inattentive, avoiding eye contact. Waited five minutes for a menu, listening to the manager offering apologies to the complaining couple at the next table. After 15 minutes, a waiter appeared to take our order, then rushed off before we could order drinks. The dim sum we ordered turned up spasmodically - the last of them an hour and fifteen minutes after we had started. Our main course order was delivered to the next table, who fell on it and started eating. Replacement main courses weren't delivered together. We ate looking at the food debris on the next table, uncleared for 20 minutes. The bill was wrong and we refused to pay the 13% service charge. To be fair, the manager apologised, then knocked the drinks off the bill and confessed that they were having a "Basil Fawlty day".

Food and drinks amazing, but overflowing paper baskets in bathrooms let restaurant down. Also not best place for people with long legs like us, as the chairs/sofas are very short. Kept having to rearrange legs sideways under table.
