Chinese Restaurant Holborn + Cocktail Bar Holborn | Cha Chaan Teng Holborn, London


Genuinely Inauthentic
Eastern Hustle

A sensory mash-up of East and West, old and new.

This is ‘Cha Chaan Teng’ reimagined, remastered, and given a playful twist.
The spirit of a traditional Hong Kong Cha Chaan Teng with a heavy dose of contemporary London attitude – serving comforting Chinese classics, alongside curious fusion concoctions.

The sumptuous and kitsch subterranean diner, fuses 1950’s Pan Am decadence with the buzzing cafe culture of the original Cha Chaan Teng. With a shot of modern Asian street art and a 1970s soul/funk soundtrack, our Cha Chaan Teng has been brought kicking and screaming into the 21st century.
