I have been meaning to write a review about Chin Chin after my third visit. Everyone rightly raves about it as the best Asian restaurant in Melbourne. Even when busy you can always find a seat; we most recently sat by the kitchen and as I watched the dishes come out I thought "there is nothing I would not eat".... More

Came here for a late night dinner with my wife. They only do bookings for large groups. Even showing up at 8pm on a Monday night we still waited over an hour. But the GoGo bar downstairs has a great vibe and even better drinks menu. Food menu is vey unique and hard to decide. We had the kingfish sashimi,... More

We went for the "feed me" option. Over a couple of hours we were served way more food than we could eat. Each dish is unique. The service is outstanding and attentive. I was expecting a long wait since they don't take bookings, but we got seated in around 10 minutes. This is one of the finest dining experiences in... More

Went to Chin Chin for a small work Xmas lunch. Arrived early so we were easily seated. We chose the "feed me" option. Everything was delicious. Extra praise for the kingfish sashimi. The meat eaters at the table loved the beef short ribs. Efficient, friendly and accommodating service (including replacing our plates with bowls that they don't usually use for... More

Innovative, modern Thai cuisine, in a busy but friendly space. Good service. No bookings a problem, best time an early or late lunch. Reasonable range of wine by the glass at affordable prices.

The food here is out of this world, the 'feed me' menu is amazing and amazing value; make sure you go there hungry! Only down side is no reservations but I actually quite liked this, we got to go to the bar downstairs and have a few of their great cocktails and whiskeys before eating. I couldn't recommend this place... More

My friend took me here last week for lunch and even though the restaurant was really packed we managed to be seated right away. The food was amazing and so was their Coconut Crush drink (highly recommend). I snuck away from my table to pay for the bill and skimmed read the bill because I trust that everything was correct,...

This is a terrific place. Huge portion sizes - the rendang was the best I've ever had but there's no way I could finish it! The house wine is excellent and while it's busy, there's a great atmosphere and as a solo diner I was happy seated at the bar. I was quite a bit older than most of the... More
