It's a catchy name for a restaurant, even if it's never entirely clear quite what the Crowne Plaza's in-house Chinese eatery has to do with cricket. No need to consult Wisden; just put yourself in the hands of CCC's ‘attentive and helpful' staff. The kitchen's focus is ostensibly Szechuan cuisine, though it's rare for a meal not to include some dim sum – perhaps black cod gow gee or prawn and chive dumplings. It isn't purist either, offering user-friendly sections (‘small plates', ‘from the wok' and so on) to make ordering easy. Cricket Club specials, from dry-sautéed green beans to crispy orange beef are generally good, likewise ‘impressive' twice-cooked pork and a salad of cloud ear mushrooms. The restaurant's ebullient manager, on hand with ‘perfect' wine recommendations, makes up for the subdued character of the dining room.
