Wondering Why We Keep Winning Awards Lately? Do you remember when food used to taste amazing? Days before the supermarkets piled in with their frozen, pre-packaged chemical concoctions. I remember when my Granddad used to make even simple toast & butter taste incredible; thick slices of freshly baked bread, smothered in real salted butter and it used to taste... Just oh so amazing! But somewhere down the line, we've lost this. It seems everyday food's all about speed, microwaves and pre-packaged. What? Day-to-day, we've now become used to bland, tasteless food, to the point where some basic fast food can even be classed as "tasty". I'm not having it...

Enjoyed dinner here on New Years Eve. The setting was cozy and welcoming, and the staff were great about providing directions to a set of lost Americans! Even though the place was fully booked, they didn't rush us through our food and provided excellent service during the entire meal. The menu was set for the night -- including options for... More

Really enjoyed our meal here. Love the idea of lots of little dishes and enjoyed some nice cocktails. Food was great and the service was quick which was impressive for a full restaurant.

Had a delicious Sunday lunch at Chin-Chin yesterday after several recommendations from friends. I arrived slightly earlier than the time the table was booked for but our welcoming waiter/bar-man was very accommodating and prepared my table so i was able to wait for my friend. We were looked after by the lovely staff and never kept waiting for too long... More

Fantastic restaurant with top notch food for a fair price. The food is served as small dishes to share, so you'll be able to taste a number of different things. Great staff. Reservation advised

I came with my partner for dinner out after reading excellent reviews on here. Was not disappointed! Food was excellent, and portions were great (filling!). Staff were very accommodating, and really made the evening. They even humoured me with listening to otter facts (you're welcome!). More beer selection / drinks on draft would have been better, but still easily a... More

We have visited Chin Chin a few times, afternoon tea and dinner. This visit was for a Christmas lunch for 20 on the Saturday before Christmas. Clear plates a good indication of good food. Service was good as always. Thank goodness it was a success because it was my recommendation. See you soon

For our office Xmas party, Chin Chin prepared a hot buffet menu tailored to mix of dietary requirements in the office. It included a delicious turkey stew, a selection of hummus dips and the best brownie I’ve ever eaten. The food was hot on arrival and was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Darren is also very friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend... More

Me and my partner had an incredible meal and all round dining experience here. Would recommend booking as it is very quaint with few tables but I loved that about it. Couldn't fault any part of our evening here.

Eighteen of us from our Kung Fu school went there last night for a Christmas celebration. The atmosphere was great, food delicious and service really excellent. The communication about paying deposits and selecting menu options beforehand was really efficient and I would thoroughly recommend it.
