Tokyo welcomes a modern dim sum bistro by famed restaurateur Alan Yau, who's best known for his restaurants Wagamama and Hakkasan in the UK. Located in the Marunouchi Nijubashi Building, Yaumay offers a well-curated dim sum menu that has both the classics and new creations; steamed favourites including shrimp har gao and siu mai feature alongside original items such as venison puffs, Peking duck dumplings and grilled ibérico jamón.
The interior design also reflect this updated approach to dim sum. The spacious restaurant is anchored by an island counter surrounding the bustling show kitchen, a concept inspired by many a Tokyo counter-style (ramen) restaurants. The table dining space, on the other hand, is a nod to a classic Parisian bistro – think leather arm chairs, huge windows with little curtains, and a fireplace framed by bookshelves.
