    They nailed it with the jerk chicken omelette and chilaquiles. Great beans and rice. Great people and authentic vibe.!!

    My daughter took me here while visiting her. This is an amazing breakfast place. Ginormous portions, and deliscious! I would love to try for other than breakfast. My daughter has only gone for breakfast.

    I went here for lunch with 4 colleagues and everyone enjoyed their food. From the veggie plate, sweet corn tamales to the jerk chicken and shredded jerk chicken pork. the food was excellent. The service was good. We stayed for some time chatting and taking care of business while we had a relaxing lunch. The atmosphere is casual dining in a patio like setting. Parking is challenging in this busy city location but they do have valet. Their lot only has about 5 spaces that has stacked type parking. But the food is worth it if you like that savory, sweet, smoky, spicy, tang.

    Cha Cha Cha is so much fun to visit and eat at. Wonderful Puerto Rican food (I think?) with a vibrant atmosphere. I'd love to go back! And featured in the first Fast and Furious movie as well!

    Had the best sweet / spicy corn tamale here. Has a variety of tasty food, nice quiet place and friendly staff. We always order the appetizer platter (can't remember the name) with a variety of delicious food and tamale on side with the grilled plantains. The picture I posted does not justice but believe me it taste way better than it looks.

    I have had a late diner at this place. Nice, friendly personnel, tasty food (I had sopes con carne) and good mexican music. Not expensive.

    Found this cute spot on my Happy Hour app, and was surprised to find there is no bar, and no real cocktails. Charming decor, but we were seated at a small table next to other diners, when we had just gone in for a drink. Turns out their drinks are made with soju or agave wine. The margarita tasted vaguely like a margarita, but the mojito was unidentifiable and undrinkable. I'm sure the food is probably great, they do have a food "happy hour" but we had gone there after lunch just to have a margarita on National Tequila Day. Fail! I blame the Happy Hour app though - do your research people! Will not use that app again.

    This unsuspecting restaurant is tucked away in the middle of Los Angeles, not far from Griffith Park, Hollywood, and Downtown. They have excellent cuisine from all around the Caribbean, from Jerk Chicken to Chuletas to Paellas. Great food, their rice uses real saffron, plantains are crispy and sweet, all their food is great. Their Paellas are delicious. A small decent beer selection (adventurous try the Brazilian Xun Gi its dark ale but really smooth) Sangria is good but small amount for the price. Great service, Bright, vibrant atmosphere, even valet parking.

    I never had tapas before. So I have nothing to compare this restaurant with. That being said, the food was excellent. Four of us went and I was the only newbie. Everyone else loved the food. We went a bit overboard with our order. From Jerk Pork to Jerk Chicken Pizza. Everything was tasty and overall excellent. We tried a couple Paellas and they were also very good. As it goes for restaurants, this was one of the cheapest ones in L.A.! Both inside and outside seating was decorated nicely setting a nice ambiance. The service was some of the best, Next time I will visit L.A. I must stop back for an encore.

    Recommended by a biz associate of ours. We arrived at about 7:30PM and it was still happy hour so we had terrific sangria and a guava and cheese quesadilla and dirty chips and salsa. All were terrific. We had an amazing paella. We would recommend all. Not an easy place to get to - and you eat on oil cloth. Good for a group of friends or just a twosome.

    They have pitchers of sangria half off during happy hour. I had the jerk chicken which was cooked excellent, comes with rice, beans, plantains and salad. The only thing I didn't care for was the salad, it tasted good, but was a warm due to the hot plate, so it was kinda wilted.

    I used to love this place but yesterday's lunch... $14 for a salad that was 2 tostadas that covered 1/2 a medium sized plate. It was lettuce. chicken and beans, a little salsa and a little guac=$14. So lunch for 2 came out to $30 something. The waiter was having trouble waiting on 3 tables. Had to ask for water 3 times had to ask for the check 2 times. VERY DISAPOINTED!

    My Kids first visited Cha Cha Cha because it was a set in their favorite movie " Fast and Furious" On the second visit, they brought along us, their parents, we loved it. We just visited Cha Cha Cha again this weekend on vacation a year later. Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Had the Red Snapper Vera Cruz, Yum. See you next year Cha Cha Cha !

    I've been to Cha Cha Cha for the first time in San Francisco, and I was impressed then. But when I came to LA and learned that there was one only 4 blocks from where I was staying, I had to check it out. From the outside, it looks very down home and almost "hole in the wall" like. On the inside, still has that type of feel, but once the food hits the table, you forget all about the ambiance! I came with some friends and we ordered a pitcher of Sangria (which was way cheaper than the one in SF) and the brunch. The entire menu was mouth watering and the service was great. The only thing I would say to keep in mind is the parking situation. The parking lot is very small and you could get trapped in your spot, but that doesn't seem to be a big concern. Will definitely visit again on my next trip!

    The years have been good to this place. Used to go there a lot 10 years ago and went back last week - they haven't lost their touch! Great brunch! French toast and bacon and pancakes and great coffee. Going back for paella!

    Perhaps it's a little bit salty but it sure is good. Really good jerk dishes. Get the combo platter for a taste of several things. They also have a nice brunch on weekends. Parking can be a challenge in that neighborhood but you can find it. It just takes a little time.

    Visited Cha Cha Cha again last night and it never disappoints. Service was friendly but not over-attentive. Food was just what we were looking for. My BBQ shrimp salad was good - the shrimp was cooked perfect. My husband's shrimp negros was delicious. Very plentiful and he shared with me - the sauce is spectacular. Add to that $ 3 coronas and $ 3.50 mojitos for happy hour and the bill was even reasonable.

    Fun, Funky, a feast for the eyes and the food a feast for the palate! The Location still boggles me, but if you get there early you can park on the street. We have found that if every one picks 2 "Tapas" each and shares the, you get a great variety of nibbles and you won't leave there hungry.
