Had the Jamaican Jerk Chicken @ both places. At Coley's in No Ho months ago, and just recently @ ChaChaCha in Silverlake. No comparison! CCC being a "Carribean" restaurant, not necesarily Jamaican makes the best Jerk Chicken I've had in The L.A. Area.
It's a true, pathetic shame that Coley's...Being a Jamaican restaurant in plain and simple English...sucks. I'm not Jamaican nor have I ever been to Jamaica to be able to compare it to Authentic Jamaican Food, but in all honesty comparing Cha Cha Cha to Coleys for Jerk...Coley's just plain sucks across the board. Food, service, value portions, everything.
This was my experience back in November:
Been back once in March, in all fairness to give them a chance to "redeem themselves". Not a chance...no improvements in any aspect.
I welcome any comments, pros/cons on either establishment, and/or recommendations for good Jamaican food in L.A.-O.C. area. I would strongly recommend Cha Cha Cha in Silverlake if you like great Jerk, good portions, great service at a reasonable price.
