SquareMeal Review of Yauatcha City

One of the standouts on Broadgate Circle’s foodie hub, this deceptively large offshoot of Soho star Yauatcha makes an immediate impact with its stunning interiors and white marble bathrooms, although the biggest gasps are reserved for the sweeping curved glass wall that follows the contours of the building. Highlights from the line-up of meticulously crafted dim sum include spicy Szechuan pork wontons and warm, crunchy venison puffs, while bigger plates range from truffle pork belly ribs and stir-fried beef rib-eye with sticky black bean sauce to steamed halibut with chilli and salted radish. Yauatcha is also known for its gorgeous desserts, so peruse the patisserie counter before sampling, say, the milk chocolate pudding with crunchy breton sablé and lusciously thick dulche de leche crème. It’s undoubtedly expensive, although those in the know rave about the “fantastic-value” ‘supreme Saturday’ offer. In fact, fans think Yauatcha City is “just divine” – despite high decibels and close-packed tables.

Times have changed. Twenty years ago, when I was first in London, in this venue men in pinstripes drank champagne while overlooking an ice rink. Now, the clientele is more diverse, the food multiple notches better, although the views more depressing. Hopefully the scaffolding surrounding much of the Broadgate complex will be gone once Crossrail is complete and then diners can get to appreciate better this outpost of Alan Yau’s ever-expanding empire. The impressive thing about Yauatcha is that its quality remains undiminished and remarkably consistent across branches. My comrade for lunch was a regular visitor to this venue and ordered dim-sum off the menu without consulting it (an impressive feat in itself) while leaving one dish at the discretion of our attentive server. Each arrived promptly, with perfect presentation and that remarkable ability good dim-sum has to taste flavoursome and succulent despite being light in texture – you just want to eat more. Venison and prawn options won my vote on this occasion. Lychee martinis proved an inspired choice with which to accompany the food, although a wide range of teas and wines are also on offer. Clearly such an experience does not come cheap, but it is worth every penny.

This is my second time at Yauatcha City and both times received great service from staff. I ordered the champagne prawn and scallop dumplings - still dreaming of them ! 5 star For mains I had Singapore noodles with chili prawns then macaroons for dessert. Its impossible to order something which is not delicious :)

My friends and I really enjoyed our dinner here last night but I would prefer coming here for lunch rather than for dinner. The staff are attentive and informative. Service is really good. In terms of quality of food, we loved the scallop shui mai, the scallop was perfectly cooked and the meat was tender. We also tried the hand pulled noodles which I was not too impressed about...the quality of the noodles is not as good as I expected. It tasted like ordinary noodles rather than hand pulled. I am not sure if it should be freshly made as I expected?!?! The overall experience was good though I would return but for lunch and not dinner.

The title says it all really doesn’t it? I absolutely loved Yauatcha City and I think it may have overtaken Hakksan as my favourite place in London for dim sum. Not only is the dim sum is superb but the service is spot on, the cocktails are delicious and the surroundings are sleek and gorgeous. They’ve got some really good wines too including lots of cheaper options. Highly recommended particularly for a post work dinner with friends.

Great cocktails, particularly the Lychee Martini, and then the food was amazing! If you love dim sum then this is the place to go. The vibe in the restaurant is great and the service is also very good. I think it is a great location for a business dinner, catch-up with friends or dates!

I was very pleased with all the food, I recommend the champagne scallops & Chilli Squid for starters and the thai chicken for main. The staff was very friendly and helpful If you are thinking of attending you MUST go.

We took part in the Supreme Saturday offer which was definitely the best value for money and made choosing from the extensive and delicious looking menu much easier. Everything was yummy and I would highly recommend

The food at Yauatcha is always great, but the supreme saturdays menu is fantastic value for money. With the free cocktails and wine included in the menu, you literally get the food for free. The portion size is great and despite being an affordable menu, they still serve lobster and truffles!

Loved the location in Broadgate Circle, and not always in London so a real treat. Service was excellent and the food amazing. Clearly there were a lot of regular diners there who knew how to order and what worked well. We were new to the style of cuisine and the menu was bamboozling - but thankfully had the confidence to ask the staff what worked well and what didn't. They were well briefed and spot on, and when they didn't know, they checked with the chef. We didn't have wine, sticking to beer and water. The food is very expensive for the portion size, and the wine really expensive. I guess the city diners were happy to pay these prices. The other issue we had was how close the tables were. Couldn't have a conversation without being overhead. Very noisy - so you had to shout which meant that everyone was doing the same (but without being overhead?!) Overall, really happy with the food, textures, tastes, experience. Could do better on the value for money and table spacing.
