Yauatcha, London

Why did we dine here? – Yauatcha is a fancy Chinese restaurant chain with several locations in London. They are the more inexpensive sister of Hakkasan. We came for dinner and found it packed, with a loud clubby atmosphere. There are locations in India and Saudi Arabia.

Insider Tip – Avoid the $$$ cocktails. Use Crispy duck to get full.

Cuisine – Chinese
Location – London Soho
Opened – 2007

Service – Yauatcha had an overloaded server. She meant well but had too many tables.
Verdict – Yauatcha had better food than we expected. If you want decent Chinese food in a sleek, clubby, sophisticated atmosphere, come here.
