Very friendly staff...even though the place was packed with Christmas parties we were attended to immediately... The price... More

We were visiting Bristol for the weekend and found this restaurant online so booked a table. We were both really impressed. Firstly, what a brilliant idea english tapas!!. The food was excellent, we ordered 4 meat/fish dishes and 3 vegetable dishes and found this to be plenty for us, along with some bread. The complimentary amuse-bouche was a nice touch... More

Having pre-booked an afternoon tea here for 6 people to celebrate a birthday, we all entered with high hopes. Unfortunately, as scrumptious as all the food tasted, (particularly those cream and jam scones) for £12.95 per person, I couldn't help but feel a little hard done by. Though there was more than enough bite size pieces of cake, a few... More

We managed to get a last minute booking for four last night and were treated to a fantastic feast of tapas style British dishes. The place has a great atmosphere and the food and service was excellent, faultless in every respect. I'd recommend ChinChin to anyone who likes a friendly, well run locally owned independent place which offers something that... More

From the minute we got there the staff looked after us really well. They ran through the menu with us and explained it as it was a really interesting grazing/tapas menu with some amazing dishes on. There were 4 of us having dinner and we had about 3 dishes each but we shared them all and then as the night... More

A very small restaurant (almost like someones front room) so be sure to book in advance. Great service and amazing food! You can see why it won an award at Bristol food awards (which is how we found out about the restaurant). A tapas style restaurant so my boyfriend and I tried the haggis, squid, australian stew (to name a... More

Recently visited for a 'date night' with the other half on a week night evening. We pre-booked and utilised a £10 off voucher which we received through being on their email mailing list. I had walked past many times and had been intrigued, so was very pleased that the experience of dining here did not disappoint. Upon entering this cosy... More

The grazing menu is a great way to try a range of small dishes. The thing about the cooking here is that every dish has such a special flavour that stops it being ordinary. Great service - friendly and interested in their guests without being obtrusive.
