I have been wanting to go to Chin Chin for a long long time! After many unsuccessful attempts (not wanting to eat around 10.30pm) I finally made it! We had a few drinks downstairs at Go Go Bar which was nice - tastefully decorated and attentive bar staff. We then headed upstairs for a late Sunday lunch. There was five... More

We were told about this by a friend who suggested the "feed me" option - it was amazing - excellent variety and we has seats overlooking the kitchen and that in itself was entertainment - did not see a meal I wouldn't eat - we were lucky - walked up at 6pm on a Monday night and seated straight away...

We ate with family and chose the all you can eat option for $66. This was a great way of trying all sorts of food that I would normally not eat. Very busy restaurant but staff were very helpful and attentive. Enjoyed all the dishes we were served.

From the fit out, to the service, the wine and beer list and last but not least, the food - it was all beyond exceptional. Came on a Sunday afternoon around 2 - it was still busy and they could only fit us at the bar, which was not a problem, in fact I think it was better than the... More

This is a terrific restaurant. Great ambiance, great food, good wine list, and outstanding service. Very busy and booking essential - but don't, and I really really mean don't miss out on the Sushimi starter - absolutely sensational. The rendang main course is likewise excellent - washed down by Central Otago pinot noir from a typically priced Melbourne wine list.... More

The queue told me straight away this restaurant must be something and I wasn't disappointed. The food was fabulous. Huge tastes with perfect balance. The pork rolls were a perfect starter and absolutely delicious. The barramundi and pork main was outstanding. I couldn't recommend Chin Chin highly enough.

We were visiting our daughter who wanted to share some of her special places in Melbourne, Chin Chin being one of them. We went last Sunday around 2 ish. We were told there would be about a 15 min wait and so worth it. It was bustling and rather noisy but we were soon engrossed in the menu. The staff... More

Long wait to get a table but so worth it (tip: the gogo bar downstairs is fantastic with delicious cocktails that are meticulously prepared). Awesome atmosphere and funky decor. Food is absolutely stunning — some of the best asian fusion I've come across. Full marks!
