A one of its kind dim sum and modern tea house in the city offers the most spectacular range of dim sums. They are power packed with subtle flavours and are nothing short of small amaze balls. The selection of main course is equally enviable with very unique sauces such as the Assam sauce which is a spicy and tangy sauce, some unusual dishes such as crispy golden pumpkin prawns, prawn cheung fun and some bold dishes such as the pork belly with man tao buns. The overall experience of dining in this unique tea house is rewarding.
Since Chinese food has moved on from being a comfort food to serious gastronomy, we have seen an entirely new facet of the cuisine. It’s just not about a bowl of chicken gravy or fried noodles, Chinese cuisine has moved on from its unpretentious perch to something a bit more spectacular. Fine dining restaurants serving Chinese food have become bolder in approach and are changing the perspective of looking at this wonderful cuisine. A similar fancy name from London has set its sight towards India and after opening restaurants in Mumbai and Delhi, with tremendous response, has opened up an outlet at Quest Mall in Ballygunge, Kolkata. ‘Yauatcha’ is a unique modern teahouse located in the heart of old-fashioned Kolkata. Foodies simply adore this place and often pop in for a flavour packed snazzy meal.
Yauatcha is all about delectable Chinese food. They proudly boast of having the best dim sums in town and although their menu is vast, it offers an exciting array of mouth-watering dishes. Ask your server for a pot of Chinese tea to go with your meal or if you like your drink stronger then there is an impressive bar menu to match too. Ginger martini looks especially delicious. Start your meal with, black pepper duck puff, prawn salad with mango, fried charcoal lamb bun, truffle edamame dumpling, prawn coriander dumpling, crispy aromatic duck, Asian greens soup with tofu, sesame prawn toast and vegetarian duck salad. Serve yourself a helping of vegetable stir fry udon noodles to go with the Chinese gravies.

Pamper your sweet tooth with a spread of divine Asian desserts.
