you don't come to cha cha cha for a gourmet meal. you come to have too much sangria with a group of people and get a little rowdy. some of the food here is pretty tasty--good calamari and patatas bravas--and some really isn't, but that's besides the point. the food is just there to keep you from getting too tipsy.
Awesome food to go along with jars of Sangria. Not a very big menu but you only have chance to try a couple because of the generous portions. I saw a lot of people wrapping up leftover. The menu has a Cuban-fusion thing going. The seafood tapas were very good. Add this on top of the value pricing and the crowd it's a great place to hang out and fill your stomach in Haights before/after you head to the bars.
Coming from the east coast REAL Latin and Caribbean food are a regular delicacy. I have only sampled a couple of dishes at this restaurant but the tastes reminded me of home. Great Food! My girlfriend and I will be back and we encourage others to try this place out.
The Sangria is very fresh and full of flavor. We ate off of the Tapas menu and even though the sauce on the shrimp was a bit rich everything else was excellent. These days when most dishes tend to taste the same the unique latin flavors of the dishes served at CHA CHA CHA were a pleasant surprise and made for a wonderful meal among friends...
