Yauatcha

15 Broadwick Street, LONDON, W1F 0DL

2 rosettes

An amazingly colourful array of pātisserie opens the show in Yauatcha's ground-floor 'tea house', but down in the basement dining room things are lively and loud. There's a long, illuminated fish tank (its occupants are not on the menu), a black ceiling studded with a firmament of star-like lights, candle lights flickering in crucifix-shaped alcoves in bare brick walls, and low-slung turquoise banquettes lining elbow-to-elbow darkwood tables. Staff are well versed in the extensive menu, which impresses with its excellent ingredients and exciting blend of traditional Cantonese favourites and more intriguing contemporary compositions. Venison puffs are Wellington-style flaky pastry dim sum with notes of hoi sin, chilli and sesame, while traditionalists might stick with prawn and chicken shui mai dumplings. Larger plates also deliver exhilarating flavours, as seen in a dish of stir-fried scallops with lotus root, or for meat fans, there may be hakka-style pork belly with cloud ear mushrooms. Not normally a high point of the oriental repertoire, the creative fusion-style desserts here are a real treat.
