Yauatcha Soho

Last Saturday me and my family went out to London for my brothers birthday meal.. he is now 19 and I can't believe it, he's almost in his 20s and as the older sibling that freaks me out! Lol. He had found this restaurant on google just at random and we decided to book it straight away due to the great reviews and rating. 

We went to Yauatcha in Soho, this restaurant is actually a contemporary dim sum tea house but it also serves quality Chinese food. I was instantly impressed with how nice it looked from the outside, we arrived about 20 minutes early so we were waiting outside for our table to be ready (we were offered to sit at the bar but we just decided to wait outside instead). I really liked how you could see into the restaurant, the lighting was quite dimmed further into it but right by the window you could see all these pretty desserts which I of course had to take a snap of.

I really liked the theme of this restaurant, it reminded me of ocean vibes, everything designed throughout is very modern, simple, sophisticated and just perfect. I wish I could've taken more photos of the interior but you just have to go there to really get the feel of the place. 

They have a great selection on their drink menu, very unique cocktails but me and my brother opted for their ice tea.. again, these were unique flavours that I never thought I could get as an iced tea. I went for the Strawberry Vanilla Ice Tea and my brother went for the Cucumber and Lime, they both were so yummy and reasonably priced too. 

The way the menu is set is slightly different to your normal restaurant, it's not as clear as "starter, main, dessert" well, there's a separate menu for the desserts but for the starters and main, I pretty much guessed which was which by looking at the prices. Everything is put into a different category, for example my main meal was under Meat and Poultry and I had to order the rice separately. I really enjoyed my starter, I went for the Shanghai chicken dumpling.. so good!

For my main I went for the Thai Style Chicken, this was divine! Filled with so much flavour and not too heavy on the stomach, the portion size is perfect too but what I loved was just how flavourful it was. It was a good balance between sweet and spicy, the mango for the sweetness and chill for the spice. 

Singapore noodles vermicelli.. my mums favourite! 

I know the photo doesn't show it properly but my uncle's meal was presented beautifully, it really reminded me of something you'd see in Masterchef, you know how they love to get fancy with their presentation lol.

We all really enjoyed our food but we didn't order dessert because we were so full! After our empty plates were taken away, a few minutes later one of the waiters came to our table with a slate saying "Happy Birthday" and two macaroons with a candle lit. My brother isn't someone who likes having that kind of thing done for him for his birthday but I couldn't resist asking they do something special for him! The funny thing is, I was told that if he was to order a dessert they would write "Happy Birthday" on the plate for him but even though we didn't order any desserts, they were still kind enough to bring this out. I was so impressed by this because it shows that they really want to make the guests feel special at a time like this. 

So there you have it, as you can already guess I would 100% recommend you try out the food at Yauatcha, I'm sure you won't be disappointed. It's not the cheapest I must say but it's also not crazy expensive but if you're looking for a quality restaurant without spending a fortune then book yourself a table here!
