Very good

Great atmosphere, buzzy and lively. Sat at the chef's bar watching them knock out dish after dish. The pulled pork pancakes were my highlight. Very good

Chin Chin has been on the bucket list for quite some time and it did not disappoint. Catching up with a group of friends, we decided to try our luck at Chin Chin on a Wednesday night. We put our names down at about 5.30pm and only waited about 40 minutes for our table (we were expecting the wait to... More

Chin Chin is the type of place where you need to get there REALLY early otherwise you'll be joining the punters in line on the street...and probably wrapped around into the next street too. The Asian fusion menu is a serious contender for some of the tasty food in Melbourne. The atmosphere is turned up to 11 and it is... More

Have been to Chin Chin a few times now but last Saturday night was our first dinner We were asked to wait in the bar downstairs for about 15 minutes before we were offered a seat at the bar. Bookings are not accepted For the first time at Chin Chin, we felt like we were rushed through our meal and... More

Great night out. Order the "feed me" menu. They continually bring you food until you say stop. What a fantastic way to sample the food. Taken here by friends who have been before. Long cue, but give you number to the staff then go down stairs for a pre dinner drink. They text you when your table is ready. Dont... More

Chin Chin is the best asian fusion restaurant I have ever been to. The restaurant was busy but I was so focussed on the food I was lost in the taste. We chose the option (I can't remember what it is called) for the staff to bring out as much food, of their choosing, for as long as you wanted.... More

We were fortunate enough to get a table without queueing on a Thursday afternoon. We ordered a noodle dish & a curry dish to share. The Pad See Eu with braised wagyu beef was perfectly cooked. The beef were succulent & tender, the rice noodles were soft & silky, both stir-fried with right amount of seasoning and good "wok hei"... More

We were recommended to eat at Chin Chin and to line up and wait as it would be worth it! We did and fortunately we didn't have to wait very long, we were seated very quickly downstairs which is much quieter atmosphere than upstairs we had the most friendliest lovely helpful waitress who knew the menu very well and assisted...

Good service and nice food, at the upper end of the price scale. But seems to have a lot of hype about it, I failed to see what all the fuss was about. Give it a try if you are keen, but if there is a queue outside then don't spend your time waiting in line.

4 of us went there for dinner last night and OMG we were not disappointed. We took the "feed me" option which basically means about 10or 12 different dishes from entree to dessert all amazing Thai fusion food. It definitely surpassed our expectations. Get in there early because tables are quickly taken.
