The bbc blog diet: Cha Cha Moon
Don't believe the (bad) hype. Cha Cha Moon is actually quite good.
When this Alan Yau 'casual dining' restaurant opened, there was a special offer of any dish for £3.50 which is no longer available but it's still worth paying a visit. My duck noodle soup with plump goji beans was very nice and the Hong Kong style milk tea was fine although it didn't seem as strong as the real thing. They even do warm Vitasoy in bottles just like in HK.
Could this be further evidence that Western food critics don't really know how to assess Chinese or Asian restaurants?
