Har gau were superb as ever here, as were prawn and chive dumplings. Gai lan was beautifully delicate, and wild prawns with chill sauce were carefully cooked and had an excellent sauce, though were a little tricky to eat as they were served in their shells…

At first glance, Yauatcha may look like a swanky cocktail bar, and with its celebrity – or sometimes just attractive – guests, the place can often resemble a nightclub. Nevertheless, it also serves some of the capital’s best and most innovative Cantonese food…

Two fried dishes – crispy duck rolls and sesame prawn toast – were elevated, elegant takes on takeaway staples, the latter whole fat tail-on prawns encased in balls of sesame seed-sprinkled dough, completely unlike the more familiar flat triangles the name brings to mind…

I did enjoy the atmosphere of the stylish dining space, however I think a better way to sample Yauatcha for a reasonable price would be to order just a few of the dim sum…

When it arrives, the food is marvellous. I loved the dark green spinach cube with crunchy prawns and water chestnut, and the har gau – scallop and prawn with fish eggs…

The turnip cake and quail pressed pretty hard, and the slippery, silky cheung fun were as pleasing as they were hard to pick up with chopsticks. The trouble was, I felt I’d come across it all before at Hakkasan…

However good some of the food was, this is the sort of restaurant that makes me want to saw off my foot and leave it on the table until it goes green, just to slap the punters and the staff out of their dopey minimalist trance…

Yauatcha is a treasure, a joy, a wonder. Of course I was going to like it, but I didn’t know I was going to love it…

Dim-sum fillings aren’t all that complex, relying on a small collection of intense flavouring agents such as toasted sesame oil, soy sauce, rice wine and sugar. But the freshness of the ingredients – and their imaginative composition – set Yauatcha apart…

The box dumplings are filled with savoury chicken and have an interesting crunch. The prawn and spring onion cakes are like flattened, stuffed doughnuts — a quick dip in a pool of viscous chilli sauce lifts them to a higher level…

I’ve never had a dim sum quite like it. Gold leaf dumpling with vegetarian shark’s fin looked like a Christmas present, its pearly whiteness tied with gold shards…

Highlights included crispy venison pastry puffs which I think had chocolate in there somewhere, impossibly light and silky prawn dumplings, astonishing scallops topped with bitter kumquat and some superb Cheung Fun, sort of a long floppy ravioli…
