SquareMeal Review of Yauatcha City

Silver Award

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 at the patisserie counter. It’s undoubtedly expensive, although those in the know rave about the “fantastic-value” ‘Weekend Yum Cha’ offer. In fact, fans think Yauatcha City is “just divine” – despite high decibels and close-packed tables.

Exceptional food

Go for the exceptional food and extensive drinks menu.  The service is also really helpful yet non-intrusive.  Just don't expect cheap eats and remember you're in prime banker land.

Great Chinese New Year dinner!

There was a dragon dance to celebrate with a special year of the rabbit menu. Very cute rabbit cakes!

Busy, noisy but amazing dim sum

We had a delicious business lunch. Always busy, sometimes too noisy.

Food is great. Wide choise of dim sum and Chinese dishes, ribs, meats, sea food.

Beautiful cakes which can also be taken away.

Great dim sum!

A great selection of dim sum and the restaurant caters for vegetarians and vegans.

Pretty cakes! 

It can be very noisy when the restaurant is busy but when we visited on a Monday in August it was less busy so not a problem.

Downhill with terrible service

Ive been dining here since it opened in 2015, including some company events. Since Covid the prices have increased, the service decreased (think an hour to order, wrong food, dropped food, staff arguing next to your table and an incompetent and rude manager Michael who has no desire to provide any level of customer service) I wont be back personally or for any events, neither will any of my guests. Its a shame as the food is still good, but you get better service at a Mc Donalds drive through!

Really expensive but generally excellent food

Nicely loacted in Broadgate - am a regular.  The food is generally excellent bt the prices are really high.  Portions are big and the dim sum really cannot be beaten.  The dessert menu is limited and the would advise to keep away from the snow pea and enoki mushroom salad as there is hardly any of eithre - it is mostly seaweed.  Everything else however was superb - the sesame prawn toasts are worth the trip in themseleves, the prawn har gau and edemame dim sum was excellent as was the spicy steamed seabass.

Service was prompt and good.  Overall a great night out particularly for a special occasion.  Be warned there is a £50 per person upfront charge/minimum spend  - whilst credit card is taken on booking - the amount was maybe not so clear when booking.

Fancy Chinese and Dim Sum restaurant

Service can be slow at times as when the restaurant is full. It was very noisy when we visited post lock down. 

It is lovely to sit out on the terrace when the weather is sunny.

Many good vegeteritan dim sums available.

Food presented well, very good tasting, decor peaceful feeling and ambience just right. Had the Tasting Menu with a cocktail, definitely worth the money. Have been a few times. On both occasions had to take remainder of food home as there was so much. So enjoyable and would have been very sad if I could not take this home with me.
