Carnaby Street's Cha Cha Moon to call it a night

Asian fusion noodle bar, Cha Cha Moon, located in Carnaby Street’s Kingly Court, has been brought to the market by specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co.


The premises, spread over the ground and first floors of a three-storey terrace, currently caters for 165 covers across communal tables and benches with an open kitchen to the rear. It has access to both Ganton Street and Kingly Court with external seating areas at both frontages and currently offers fast, casual Asian dishes for both eat in and takeaway.

The current tenants, who established the restaurant in 2008, have decided to sell the lease to focus on other business interests.

Simon Chaplin, Head of Restaurants at Christie & Co comments, “The Carnaby Street area has evolved into a destination retail and hospitality location which attracts some 44m visitors a year. Kingly Court is a great draw in its own right having been developed by the landlords, Shaftesbury Estates, into a multi-level dining venue with many new and innovative operators located within it.

“This is possibly one of the most exciting restaurant sites that has come onto the market in recent years – opportunities for operators to acquire premises in London’s West End are extremely scarce. We therefore expect high interest and fierce competition from both independent and corporate operators both nationally and internationally.”

Christie & Co is seeking offers in excess of £700,000 for the leasehold interest with all fixtures and fittings and an annual rent of £410,000. The first round of offers is sought by Tuesday 25th October 2016.
