Mark Hix creates culinary triumph at Hix Oyster & Chop House

Giles Coren visits the Hix Oyster & Chop House and finds the former Ivy executive chef and owner Mark Hix has created a culinary triumph in London's Farringdon.

Coren sums up his review by saying "I can't think of a place I'd rather eat right now."

Jan Moir believes Alan Yau's latest Cha Cha Moon demonstrates how clever he is.

The Are You Read To Order? critic describes Yau's take on traditional Hong Kong street stalls as "genius".

But John Walsh from the Independent finds the super speedy experience of dinning at Cha Cha Moon "hip, super efficient and almost entirely soulless", suggesting that if it was a person it would be a Chinese Richard Madeley.
