    Went for bottomless soup dumplings. Delicious. Always came out piping hot with very little wait. Will definitely be back. The chorizo harissa on the eggrolls was bomb, BTW.

    We were excited to try this restaurant but were disappointed. The food was marginal: fried food was greasy; soup dumplings under-cooked, flavor was ok but soup part was gelatinous and dumpling gooey and undercooked. Service was grudgingly provided; won’t be going back.

    Thank you Paul, for sharing your feedback. We are sorry that we didn't hit the mark for you on your visit. YumCha is known for its flavorful, Asian inspired food and friendly service and it seems like we weren't on our game the day you come in. Please reach out, if you would like, to our General Manager Monica to see if we can get you back in here to try the food that Denver raves about. Especially our Soup Dumplings. We hope to hear from you soon.

    Absolutely one of our favorite restaurants in the united states. Chef years ago was extremely warming when I meet him years ago and that flows into the food and service. Consistently being great is hard to accomplish but they do it here

    Tasty food but a disappointing food experience. Overall service was lacking and absent. Yumcha has a restaurant week deal that is meant to be shared as a couple for $35/person or $70 per couple. Although, this is no deal even though they are advertising it as one; if you order the most expensive items on the restaurant week menu, you save a total of $1 (cost of regular priced menu would bring you to $71). Also, on the restaurant week menu, you share an entree. We ordered the curry which is soup like but they didn’t bring out individualized bowls or spoons. Our waitress was absent and had to be asked to refill water, bring utensils, etc.

    Went for restaurant week and got to try a little of everything and everything was great! Personal favorites were the sweet and sour dumplings, crispy shrimp appetizer, and the kimchi fried rice.

    Disappointed! When we chose this restaurant from the Restaurant Week website, it said $35 for 3 appetizers, 1 entree, and 1 dessert - I assumed for each person, but when we got to the restaurant, we learned that the price was $70 for a couple who shared the 3 appetizers, 1 entree, and 1 dessert. And we found out that one of the desserts was already sold out by 5:30 on a Sunday evening. And to top it all off, we validated our parking at the Sugar Cube apartments only to have the waiter put the validation QR code over the code to get out of the garage so we had to call the attendant who made us pay for parking. Poorly advertised, managed, and executed experience from YumCha restaurant.

    Anonymous We are sorry that your experience for Denver Restaurant Week wasn't what you were expecting. Our menu has been well received as it offers a shared experience, which is what our restaurant is all about. We hope that you did enjoy the food and hope you come back in the future. As for the parking validation, we do apologize and will talk to the team about proper placement of the validation stickers.
