Reflecting the menu’s sleek presentation, is the restaurant’s equally polished interior design. Bringing elements of minimalism into the décor, Yauatcha straddles contemporary lines with tasteful touches of Chinese heritage. Yauatcha is a social space; a modern incarnation of the traditional Chinese tea house; a space to connect – with the environment, other people and the experience. Taking this and its electric blue-lit ambiance, brings Yauatcha’s vision for sleek and contemporary lines to life. The restaurant’s design lends itself to authenticity. From the open kitchen to the convivial seating arrangement to the restaurant’s signature starry sky lounge, Yauatcha makes the unfamiliar, familiar, giving its guests the freedom to create an experience that means something to them.

Across its two floors, guests are privy to the dynamic energy coming from the peaceful aquariums and the year-round, airy and climate-controlled garden terrace that is a nature-filled space with verdant foliage and Cherry Blossoms.

The multi-purpose restaurant space offers private rooms catering for business lunches and dinners, alongside a standalone French-inspired patisserie serving up a delectable array of sweet masterpieces, perfect for all gift-giving occasions.

“Yauatcha’s design allows guests to instantly feel at home. Taken from the convivial nature of a dim sum teahouse, the space inspires a level of camaraderie, which gives a sense of familiarity and warmth with a woven sophistication throughout. It is the perfect setting for a casual catch up as well as a fit-for-purpose business venue with our many private VIP spaces,” adds MacPherson. Yauatcha Riyadh officially opens on 9 February.
