So good EVERY time

We love this place and will find any opportunity to eat here. You do need to get here early to get a spot but there is the bar downstairs which has wonderful cocktails if you arrive too late and need to wait for an hour or two. The feed me contains so much food and has always been good. If... read more

This place pumps and pumps, it's loud it's noisy it's not the perfect place to converse with friends but the food will take you to the bustling Hanoi, be prepared to spend and extra unexpected $60-80 on drinks in the bar whilst waiting for a table. Worth the bucket list but no hurry to return

From the moment we arrived we simply loved Chin Chin. A lovely setting, delightful staff....and of course, stunning food. This restaurant deserves the wonderful accolades it receives. The food is simply exceptional. Flavour, flavour flavour at its best. Would love to have lunch here every week.

A wonderful and tasty dining experience. It was a busy Thursday night...there was a queue and a 30 mins wait for a spot at the bar, but it was totally worth it as the food was delicious and the service fantastic. A nice idea for the share plates too.

Our friends took us to Chin Chin. We were lucky to have the last table. The waiters are very nice and social.

Delicious food, good vibe, great value for money, lovely service. If you can get in within an hour, do it. But really, I just can't justify waiting any longer to be seated at a restaurant - especially when you're spoiled for choice in Melbourne.
