    DESSERTS TO DIE FOR! Flavours, combinations, texture, everything is spot on. Every single one I've tried was amazing. Whenever I eat at Soho, I go to Yauatcha and pick some desserts to take away.

    One Michelin star. Top dishes: venison puffs, lobster and caviar steamed dumpling, spicy soft shell crab with almonds, duck salad and Jasmin tea smoked ribs. Blue tea and desserts are excellent.

    One of the best meals ever! Steamed vegetable dumplings, jasmine tea smoked ribs, and baked chicken aubergine are not to be missed. The raspberry delice is the best dessert you will ever have.

    One Michelin star establishment serving excellent dim sum ala carte dishes. Practically everything is great on the menu. Try the divine Venison Puff, Pan Fried Turnip Cake & Jasmine Smoked Pork Ribs.

    Have as much dim sum as you can or can afford to have, enjoy a cocktail or two and make sure you leave room for desert: you get to cherry-pick them from the counter upstairs.

    Good dim sum. Get the venison puff and crispy prawn cheung fun. Solid har gau. Prices are reasonable even for dinner if you order a la carte and share with a group. One Michelin star.

    Forget about the main course, just focus on the dimsums. My favorite list: Scallop shui mai, Har gau, Spicy soft shell crab, Prawn and beancurd cheungfun, Jasmin tea smoked ribs.

    Some of the best dim sum out there - definitely have the Venison Puffs. I'd say the more non-trad dim sum is better. Service is wonderful. Pretty awesome cocktails too!

    King prawn with tofu roll and crispy mushroom spring rolls are my fav main. For desert I love the Raspberry the most, it shapes as a rose which is so pretty

    My favourite in London. Order the venison puffs, jasmine tea smoked ribs, char sui (pork) buns, crispy duck roll, some pak choi or gai lan and whatever else you fancy plus a tea based cocktail! Oh yes

    Scrumptious michelin dim sum with a wonderful variety of treats (dumplings and the like) right in the heart of soho. The duck salad was my favorite as it's absolutely fantastic. Top-notch service.

    EYUP rocks, go find him! Eat CHEUNG FUN (prawn&beancurd), SESAME PRAWN TOAST; SCALLOP SHU MAİ; Drink ginger martini OR kura mi ami martini OR citrus martini (lots of passion fruit in it). PERFETTO!!

    The dim sum at the specialty, just try what you like. The idea is to share. My favourite is the Crispy aromatic duck, pulled and served with pancakes, cucumber and spring onions and hoisin sauce

    Large range of amazing pastries for dessert. They all are truly marvellous, I like to come there only for the cakes. Highlights were Inaya lulo & Cherry chocolate.

    The chic Asian restaurant with a very cozy atmosphere. It actually feels like a warm Italian restaurant but it's all Chinese. Very contemporary and delicious. Be sure to make a reservation beforehand.
  • Natalia Q.
    Michelin starred dim sum? Yeah, we're game. All of the dumplings are worthy of the rating, but the Peking spring rolls, sticky rice in a lotus leaf (with chicken and shrimp) are also amazing

    Amazing place... The ambiance is outstanding... All the different appetizers and main dishes we have tasted were delicious. Although it is a little bit expensive, it is worth all the money you spend

    Best Chinese in Soho. Dim sum aside, the sea bass congee is really really good and the raspberry delice tastes as awesome as it looks. Non-alc-drink-wise definitely get strawberry vanilla iced tea!

    The 2 dishes everyone seemed to recommend (venison puffs and king crab dim sum) didn't live up to the hype. Crispy duck and lobster dim sum were amazing. For a refreshing cocktail try Sweet Khandala.

    The dim sum here is amazing. I think this might have been my favorite in london. Amazing food, doesn't matter what you get, very authentic. Drinks are amazing too. Highly recommended

    I don't know about the dim sum but the dessert bar is perfect if you want to have a different night out. Incredible atmosphere and spectacular dishes. Go for Raspberry with Lichee ice!

    Seems you always have to book. We came early weekend morning so we got a place. Very good dimsum but a bit pricey. Cakes at store front are out of this world pretty (shown in glass cases).
  • Savannah P.
    the large dishes are nothing to write home about- come for the dim sum. the spicy wontons are great, as are the xiao long bao. the portions are small and expensive- dim sum plates are 3 or 4 pieces.

    Dim sum taken to another level, everything's delicious, with some inventive/creative twists on the conventional dishes! Also a fun and vibrant venue with great service & ambiance!

    Very satisfied with the dim sum menu. The venison puffs are fantastic (though not traditionally Chinese). And if you like orange and pistacho try the dessert Baba, superb.

    the teatime set is great value and offers a good selection of yauatcha specials, such as scallop shu mai and venison puff. Sadly they forgot to serve us one dish from the set menu. Good cocktails too!

    Alan Yau of Hakkasan's other place. if you love dim sum & green tea, this is the place for you. Every detail was so thought out. Mango jelly, coconut mousse, raspberry sorbets. Absolute divine.

    REALLY delicious dim sum and great service. Hero dish: beancurd cheung fun. Loved: scallop shui mai, chinese chive and prawn, har gau. Disappointing: duck spring rolls.
  • Suzi E.
    Really quite spendy but utterly delicious. Venison puffs and har gau were stand-out dishes. Only a beef and enoki cheung fun missed the mark. Good non-alcoholic drink choices.

    Sit downstairs, try sweet potato/mushroom dimsum + prawn and bean cheung fun + duck w/ pancakes + raspberry chocolate dessert + a virgin mandarin + chilli cocktail. Best dim sum in London!

    Table of 9 so we had to have a set menu. Service good overall apart from an odd waiter who was quiet disorganised and inattentive. The veggie dim sums and dumplings were very good.

    Loved the Poached Peking chicken dumpling!! Stayed in the lower room which has a great ambience due to the balanced lightning and the large fish tank.

    Michelin-starred restaurant has a great selection of teas to go with hundreds of dumplings. Ask to be seated downstairs, cool as no chinese spot so far!

    I agree with the others, venison puffs, though a bit oily, are extremely delicious. wild mushroom dumplings are OK, spinach balls are nice. green tea is top class.

    Dim Sum was pretty tasty. It's more refined than traditional dim sum (aka less oil and smaller portions) but the flavors were decent. The atmosphere and service were also quite posh.

    Not the original dim sum but more western posh fusion version of dim sum, like lobster dumplings and venison puffs. Bit pricey but the place to go for celebrations. Brilliant wine and cocktail list.
