Review: Cha Cha Moon
Based in the heart of Soho, just off Carnaby Street in London’s West End, Cha Cha Moon
offers authentic Chinese cuisine in a modern, urban setting reminiscent of many of Hong Kong’s noodle bars and restaurants. The menu delves right across Asia to give diners both authentic street food and classic dishes, all with a generous dash of contemporary flair. The service is fast-paced yet warm and friendly and dishes are plentiful. Cha Cha Moon also offers an innovative cocktail menu – try the sweet Shibaya Casual – a combination of dry sake and fresh and fruity lychee laced with a Martini Bianco.

Eating one apple a day it would take you over 20 years to try all 7500 varieties.
In traditional Chinese cuisine, when eating a whole fish, resist the temptation to flip it over, as that symbolises the capsizing of a boat.
