Don't use that when making a comparative, say than.

Joanna is an artist from San Francisco who moved to London in 1988. We asked her to compare life in San Francisco and London. Here’s what she told us.
San Francisco is a lovely city in a beautiful bay. It’s got lots of great buildings and places. It’s smaller and much more modern than London, but it’s less interesting. London has a lot more theatres and museums. The Americans are usually more interested in money than culture! The architecture in London is incredible and very stimulating, and the parks and markets are wonderful. London isn’t as dangerous as San Francisco, and it’s less violent. I feel much safer living here – nobody carries a gun, not even the police!
People have a higher standard of living in the States because generally, it’s much less expensive than England. For example, petrol is less than half the price and things like food, clothes, and cameras are much cheaper.
The food
Food in the States is generally much better. It’s fresher, cheaper, and there’s much more choice. Restaurants aren’t as expensive as in London and the service is much better. In some restaurants they put a clock on the table when you arrive, and if they haven’t served your meal in five minutes, they’ll give you the food free! I’m usually disappointed when I eat out in London, although the Indian restaurants are excellent.
