We loved going to CHA CHA CHA. But... they are closed. There is another CHA CHA CHA in the Hawaii Kai area but they have not been connected for many years. The people at THAT restaurant have no info about the Honolulu-Waikiki location.

Also the pineapple hot sauce....gotta try to copy that one!! So it was to our dismay in October... More

We had an epic mealtime here in September – I’ve since heard it has closed and hope it’s a rumour! Ridiculously huge portions of nachos – the best we’ve had followed by humungous burritos and quesadillas. Lovely food, nice waitress and cool décor.

Closed: hotel front desk clerk at 342 Seaside Avenue said Cha Cha Cha closed down recently. Shame because area could use something in this price range.

Great meal, massive plate of nachos the 2 of us couldn't finish. Looking at the other tables we saw other partons also struggled to finish what looked like enormous portions, Suggest sharing a meal if you are an average eater.

We didn't actually eat here, but met up with friends for a drink. When we saw the food served to others we wish we HAD eaten here! Huge serves that make it a great value choice, especially shared between two, the nachos and fajitas look amazing. What we DID try was more than a few of the margaritas - YUM!... More

Popped in for a late lunch and this was conveniently located adjacent to the Shoreline Hotel. Nacho's with chicken were HUGE and awesome. Just the snack we needed. Great prices for Waikiki.

The food was ok except for the 1/2 a large raw onion in the burrito which made it very unpleasant. Once removed it tasted fine though it and the rest of the food was nothing special. Perhaps it’s enough to say that we stayed in the hotel above the restaurant and went there on our first night and we never... More

If you are a combination of Mexican food lover and a vegetarian, there is no better place to be rather than "Cha Cha Cha 2 Waikiki" for lunch on your Honolulu vacation! My wife and I stumbled upon this restaurant on our walk to another restaurant (which happened to be closed) and thought we could give it a try and... More
