Liutaio is a place where anyone and everyone can meet up and enjoy our food and drinks

Liutaio is a name that carries many meanings. It originates from the Italian language, and in olden times would have been translated to mean ‘lute maker’.

All our dim-sum is steamed fresh to order so will take around 15 minutes. Dim sum is a style of Cantonese food that is inextricably linked with yum cha, or the act of drinking tea. The unique culinary tradition began thousands of years ago. Those who travelled along the ancient Silk Road through China would often need a place to rest before continuing on their journey. In response to the increasing amount of people passing through, teahouses opened up along the roadside of Southern China. It was later discovered that tea aids digestion, so teahouse owners began offering bite-sized snacks as an accompaniment, and thus yum cha was born. Dim sum means ‘touch the heart’. The small portions were designed to merely touch the heart, not sate the appetite, and as such were first enjoyed as snacks.
