Visited Chin Chin on a recent trip to Melbourne at the recommendation of our kids. I'm not really one for queuing to a restaurant but we had a voucher so we were going whatever. Went on a Tuesday night thinking it would be a bit quieter but a wait of 30 minutes if we were happy to eat at the... More

I attended a hens night at this restaurant and was told that because of the number of guests we would have to have the 'feed me' option whereby you pay $69 each and get what given. I am pregnant so emailed them before the even to let them know of my dietary requirements. Although the email was acknowledged my request... More

The food was really good and everything was served really quickly, maybe even too quickly! But yea I do get that if you have that much people coming in its the only way. Then again, it made us feel a bit rushed! Over all the food was great and we enjoyed the evening alot!

A gem and not to be missed. The service staff are fantastic, and food is great! Go for early lunch on a weekend if you want to avoid a crowd. The queue was crazy on sunday for dinner, so reservations would be necessary.

Prepare to bring some time as you can not book a table. It s a very busy restaurant with very professional and friendly stuff. They offer Asian fusion food which is just amazing

You would come to Chin Chin for the food. it is fabulous. A wonderful selection of starter dishes - pulled pork parcels were great, the kingfish sashimi was delicious, and the larb gai was also tops. The mains were also really beautiful combinations of flavours. We were able to share a couple of desserts, and for me the coconut sago... More

Yes, it's busy and there is always a wait, but it is sooo worth it. Get your name in (my details were still there after last years visit), and head downstairs for a drink. Our 90 minute wait turned out to be a little under 30 minutes. Got a nice table by the window and ordered a mix of seafood... More

Lovely atmosphere, kind of cosmopolitan, great selection of food, very tasty, very obliging staff, right in the centre of Melbourne, only downside is that you can't book, need to queue to get a table
