Expat Chef Chong Chee Loong is the Head Chef at Yauatcha India, having started his legendary career over two decades ago. He has played an enormous role in setting up dim sum and wok kitchens across India for Yauatcha.

Yauatcha made its debut in Kolkata on 7th September, 2014 with a 151 seating capacity, including an al-fresco area offering an all-day dining experience with dim sum, wok preparations, macarons and petit gateaux. Additionally,

The palette of design materials used in Yauatcha Kolkata forms a modern interpretation of the old Chinese teahouse. The seating embodies the atmosphere of a congenially vibrant ‘chatter shop,’ akin to the traditional Hong Kong dim sum restaurants. Beautifully embroidered Chinese motifs on the leather chairs lend an added sense of grace to the restaurant. The lighting of the tables is accentuated with ceramic shades handmade in Scotland.
