Delightfully Delicious

My good friend and I were in Melbourne this weekend for shopping from Sydney. We had a quick lunch here before going to see Anything Goes! The food was amazing. Loved the cocktails as well. We sat at the station where the food was being prepared! So much staff and all of them working hard. Service... read more

Chin Chin had been recommended by friends. We were expecting a wait and yes, there was a queue outside the door. We went down to Go Go Bar and enjoyed a drink for around 40 minutes before our table for two was ready. The menu is extensive and it was useful to get some recommendations from staff. The food we...

This is my third visit to Chin Chin and - as before - I wasn't disappointed. The kingfish sashimi, barramundi/pork dish and sago pudding with sweetcorn ice cream were amazing. The green beans were, however, disappointingly bland. The wine was good, but it's difficult to find a reasonably priced good bottle. The staff were very attentive and friendly. Overall, all... More

I love this restaurant! Relaxed feel with amazing food and service. Tip, go early 11.30am for lunch or 5.30pm for dinner. You can put your name down and they will call you when a table comes up. The wait time can be up to 2hrs on a friday or saturday night!!!

It is unfortunate that bookings cannot be made, however its was wort the wait of 45 minutes. The menu and flavors are fantastic. Rather hip atmosphere. Good fun to sit at the bar watching meal preparation.

The first time I went to Chin Chin i was thrilled. The food was delicious, amazing flavours I really couldn't wait to go back. The food was still good but the meat was definitely overcooked just spoilt the experience a bit.

There is a lot of praise for this place and for good reason. It's not just because it's hot and trendy, but because the food is really delicious. The DIY spring rolls were fun and delicious. I usually don't like making my own food in a restaurant but this was an exception. The Rendang beef curry had so many delicious... More

I went there with my children and brother and we were amazed by how good it was. We only had to wait 5 mins to get a table and were served very quickly. I would strongly recommend this place.
