first, the food. dee-lishus. we shared starters: seaweed, really good sized portion and very well cooked; tempura vegetables, perfect flavour and perfect batter; veggie dumplings; the sauce transported them into manna from heaven. my main was the fake duck ~ and frankly it was the best i've eaten. my friend chose chose the real duck, in plum sauce, and said it was the best she'd had since visiting china. after all that, no space for pudding! the service was gently attentive (i'm...

Ordered a delivery from Yumcha on Friday we were told that it would be 40 minutes, an hour later still no delivery, telephoned them and was told it was just round the corner. another 20 minutes passed and still no chinese, 2 more phone calls eventually it arrived and we were told by the delivery driver that it had been in the car for 40 minutes, it was cold and soggy. We spent over £50 and unfortunately paid over the phone with a card. The assistant manager, manager and owner are the most... (read more)

Shockingly bad! Crispy noodle seafood dish tasted like salty water, with some rubbery seafood mixed in and some completely flavourless noodles separately.
Thai Green Curry - murky green salty spicy water, absolutely no coconut milk and no way was it chicken, it was probably turkey and tasted awful, in fact inedible
Very poor, very disappointed (read more)

This was our first visit to Yumcha. Food was ok but average. Service was poor. We had a long wait until drinks orders were taken, the waitress did not appear to know the menu and wanted to know the numbers rather than the names of the dishes, the wrong starter came out and although it was eventually replaced there was no apology and we were made to feel like we had made the mistake, the soy source and chilli dips came out some time after the starters did. Food was slammed down when served... (read more)

nice place - quiet as it's a bit out of the main Surbiton town centre/high street (by about 100m).
Food timely - hot and tasty.
Good value - 3 service staff - barman (excellent), 2 floor/table staff 1 new starter and 1 experienced - like with it, foods great. (read more)

I've dined here many times and always been more than happy with both the food and service. Whether dining with a large group of friends, or just with my two small children, the food has been delicious and the waiting staff delightful. It feels like a family owned business with a range of generations involved in the greeting and waiting. The sizzling steak is to die for. The range of wines very good and very reasonable. Yumcha is on my list of regular restaurants because it doesn't... (read more)

So, this is the second time I've been to Yumcha Chinese Restaurant now and to be honest, the second bad experience.
The restaurant itself is beautifully decked out, great first impressions when you first walk in. Unfortunately that's where the good things pretty much end.
The food itself isn't bad, but it's nothing special. And it should be at the price, Yumcha occupies the upper end of out-of-London Chinese food prices.
So, to the review of today's visit. First off, false advertising,... (read more)
