You may have to put your name down and go away for 2 hours but you can prepare for that! The food is outstanding! You almost dont realise you are eating asian inspired food... the names of the some of the dishes may be a little intimidating but the staff were very helpful at providing advice on whats really good...

Down from Sydney for the tennis and headed back to Chin Chin as we always do. Around the tenth visit, and food was world class. Had our first hiccup with the barramundi and caramelised pork, where it arrived at first without the pork (which our waiter noticed and resolved immediately) - although on return, the pork seemed to be the...

The ambiance, service and above all the food is amazing at Chin Chin We arrived at 6.20pm and were added to the waiting list. We walked down stairs to the bar area and ordered drinks and the chicken wings whilst we waited for our table. The wings were absolutely amazing - so we couldn't wait to venture upstairs for more...

Partner and I happened to walk past chin chin in search of lunch. What a stroke of luck!! This place is unforgettable. We were seated immediately even though the place was packed! Drinks came out fast after ordering. So many amazing options on the menu so we opted for the "feed me" option. Soooooo much incredible food. We could not... More

I would return to eat here time and time again! The food is beautiful, quirky yet delicious! The service was great, very quick and attentive. We did have to wait an hour or so to get in, but that was fine as we went to the bar for a couple of drinks. Love the way the space is designed aswell!

Without a doubt my favourite Melbourne restaurant. The food is outstanding, amazing flavours and interesting meals that keep you excited for the arrival of each and every dish. Great value for money. Arrive early, as it fills up fast.

My wife and I went to Chin Chin Restaurant after we say the head chef cook on Master Chef. We weren't disappointed. Brilliant food, service was quick and good, mainstream on the wine list. Could of had better selection of boutique wines. But overall it was excellent and we have no hesitation in going back there.

Chin Chin certainly doesn't need my review in order to encourage people to line up for a chance at a table, but I had to note what an outstanding experience Chin Chin provided for our very unsophisticated group of 6. We got to Chin Chin at 8:30 on a rainy night dressed in very tired traveling clothes (not upscale Melbourne... More

We were told by the locals that it's a very hard restaurant to get in, they don't take bookings at all. We happened to walk pass on a Monday night and we accidently got in, we totally enjoyed the meal, was awesome - each dish has a very unique flavour.

We came here during our business trips, things that we liked was the foods were delicious but may be because we ordering similar dishes, seems the taste was around "Sweet and sour" kind of flavor but it was delicious especially their honeycomb lava. I think its a little bit overrated though. I haven't tried their other dishes yet. We tried... More
