An all-day dim sum tea house celebrating authentic Cantonese cuisine with a modern influence.

Yauatcha operates two restaurants in London; in the heart of Soho and in the City,
along with international locations in Mumbai, Bengaluru, and Kolkata, India, and in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.


Yauatcha is an accessible fine dining experience that fuses dim sum, mixology, tea, and European patisserie to create a unique and social experience that reflects the spirit of a modern-day tea house – or a chatter house. 

The renowned menu includes a wide selection of dim sum and a list of over 24 types of tea. Yauatcha presents authentic Cantonese dishes with a modern influence, offering a wide range of steamed, baked, grilled and fried dim sum such as Scallop shui mai, Prawn and beancurd cheung fun and Venison puffs, also including an assortment or larger menu items of duck, fish and noodle dishes.

The original design concept by Christian Liaigre offers full view of the kitchens allowing passers-by to witness the preparation of the expertly-made dishes.

Customers Dining with Various Dishes and Cocktails


With two restaurants in London, Yauatcha launched in the heart of Soho in 2004 and gained immediate critical acclaim receiving numerous prestigious awards including a Michelin star. Yauatcha City opened in May 2015 following the success of the Soho restaurant.
Yauatcha was the first and remain the only restaurant to combine Chinese dim sum and European patisserie, creating trends rather than following them. Yauatcha embraces the innovative, forward-thinking aspects of modern Chinese culture. Based in some of the most cosmopolitan areas of the world, we bring a worldly vision to the table, always open-minded and cultured.

Yauatcha’s menu offering, served throughout the day, is dim sum dominant cuisine. It is formulated under the ‘core and peripheral’ strategy, meaning traditionally there are about ten dim sum dishes that form the generic definition of what dim sum is all about. These are; shu mai, har gau, cheung fun, venison puff, sticky rice in lotus leaf, chicken feet, char sui bun, taro croquette, pan-fried turnip cake, and congee.
