Five Fun Facts about Yauatcha Waikīkī

(Sponsored) International Market Place's newest restaurant is dim sum done right.


HONOLULU Magazine stopped by the International Market Place’s Grand Lanai to check out the grand opening of new restaurant Yauatcha Waikīkī. A contemporary restaurant concept, Yauatcha offers dim sum, unique cocktails and patisserie under one roof.


1. The traditional Hong Kong teahouse gets a sophisticated upgrade

Yauatcha is owned by Hakkasan Group, a worldwide hospitality company known for its sophisticated dining experiences. While Hakkasan has restaurants all over the world, Yauatcha is its first Hawai‘i restaurant—but, the group says, not its last.


2. A warm welcome

Rickshaw service, a red carpet and these lovely ladies were there to greet event guests. Um, can we live here?


3. Music, drinks and small bites

The night started off with a bang with a DJ spinning, Champagne flutes of Dom Perignon and dim sum bites delivered fresh from the kitchen. Verdict? Everything we tasted was delicious.


4. Serving all-day dim sum

5. Beautiful pastries made in-house
