    **WE HAVE SOLD OUT SO QUICKLY, WE HAVE DECIDED TO ADD A 2ND NIGHT - THURSDAY, JULY 21!** Join Yumcha on an exciting 5 course journey from the southern sea-breeze of Hiroshima all the way to the harsh northern winters of Akita. With each bottle of sake comes a story of a certain legendary poet, who, after a bottle of sake, could tell a hundred tales. With a sip from another, comes another ancient folklore of a fox who was to be wed in the deep mountains of Kirin.   Inspired by sake, Chef Lon & Chef de Cuisine Justin are bringing you an exclusive 5 course Japanese inspired tasting menu paired with sake on July 20th.   Join us as we present 5 deliciously creative courses that play off the flavor profiles of each sake!

    The dumpling casing could be thinner. In a traditional Chinese soup dumpling, there is much thinner dumpling skin. The flavors are spot on and delicious!

    We loved this place. The general Tso's soup dumplings and fried pork dumplings were great! We also had the scallion pancake ban mi, the ramen and the wage beef and chinch broccoli. Every dish was great and we will be back! We came in during happy hour before an Avalanche game and had a great time!!

    We attended happy hour on a Saturday at 2pm. For a while we were the only ones in the restaurant so it was very quiet and easy to have a conversation. The staff were as amazing as the food. Our server, Olivia, was PHENOMENAL! She described the dishes and offered suggestions with supreme knowledge. We tried at least half of the happy hour menu and a few main dishes. All of them were so good we could not stop eating! We loved the dumplings that we saw on Instagram- which brought us into the restaurant in the first place - but our favorite were the crab Rangoons!! I think we had five orders of them over the course of our meal! Also the Bahn Mi flatbread was truly unforgettable. For main dishes we loved the Buddha bowl and Curry! So delicious! We can not wait to come back! Everything was so amazing! Thank you to the whole team of YumCha for our experience!

    They had some very loud country music playing that was not the best fit or ambience for an asian dumpling house. Really kind of distracting and annoying. Food was good and service was great but a bit pricy for the portions. We had 7 dumpling and appetizer orders and split an entree between 2 people and were still a bit hungry.

    We went for happy hour and had a reservation, which made things smooth. We sat at the bar and tried one of each appetizer off the happy hour menu. The pork and soup dumplings were so tasty and flavorful. Signature cocktails were delicious with the Mandarin Dragon being the fav of the group. Great service from the bartender. Unfortunately, they were out of the Pom Pom Shrimp. We will definitely be back!!

    Our server was AMAZING. So helpful and friendly. Really enjoyed dining here. The food was really good, at least at first. All the starters/shared plates were delicious. The Pad Thai was really sad. And we asked for more sauce/toppings but that didn't help. Wasn't asking to have it removed from the bill but again our amazing server took it off. Overall a really great meal.

    Went for restaurant week, and overall it was ok. Appetizers were great , I’d go back just to have some shared apps next time. Drinks were ok but a little overpriced for what they were. Entrees we’re eh - I had the chicken curry and that was good! The other entrees were not great… and dessert were underwhelming at best

    YumCha was very busy when we went there, but the staff was very professional and courteous, so it wasn't a problem to wait at all. The restaurant is small and feels cozy, and the food was very good. I think this is a great option for a casual restaurant experience on the 16th Street Mall.
