Yauatcha is one of my favourite Chinese restaurants in London. I’ve been to it a number of times in the past, always ordering the same dim sum.
This time, as a guest of the restaurant, I also tried a few of the mains which were designed just for Chinese New Year. I wasn’t disappointed.
That said, if price were a constraint, I’d happily stay with just the dim sum.
