Two months after one of eight signature restaurants at the International Market Place shut down, Yauatcha Waikiki will serve its last dim sum on Aug. 31.
Since its February 2017 opening, Yauatcha has consistently ranked among the top best new restaurants — offering all-day dim sum, as well as afternoon tea.
News of the impending closure comes after Baku Waikiki was shuttered in June.
“It’s because we just weren’t making enough money to pay for the restaurant,” a Yauatcha employee said.
Hakkasan, which owns Yauatcha and Herringbone, also on the Grand Lanai, plans to keep the latter open.
