Other than my wife, I will never cheat on my barber or Chin's! They use quality ingredients to create wonderful dishes. My favorites are the Beef with Broccoli and Sweet and Sour Pork. You won't find food sitting under buffet lights all day. Your lunch or dinner order will be prepared fresh and served hot. Portion sizes are above average... More

Have eaten here many times. Food is always freshly prepared and very good. I have never had a bad meal and have had many of the items on the menu. The family who own the restaurant are very friendly. Enjoy!

Speaking from experience from both coasts, this is good Chinese food. Two different dishes, two different sauces, cooked well and served rather formally (on a cart!). Service was good and the establishment clean. Better than Taste of Asia (any of them) or any of the buffet places. More variety on the menu with some dishes I had never seen before.... More

I just left after a delightful lunch at Chin's. I had never tried them before, but this is my friend's favorite spot. I can see why! The staff is very pleasant & attentive. The atmosphere is quiet & relaxing. The restaurant was spotless. The food is just delicious- and not frozen! The egg rolls were crisp on the outside, &... More

Chin's is a Kanawha City institution. The remodeling has made it even more inviting. The menu has not changed for years, but that is because it is a good menu! Try the Hot and Sour Soup. I really like the Schezwan beef over noodles. The prices are great!

Very old fashioned food and atmosphere - you know, lots of red and gold in the restaurant and the standard American-Chinese menu. The service is uniformly good. The food is made with fresh ingredients, cooked to order and seasoned with an expert hand. It's comfort food - nothing you brag about to your friends, but enjoy eating. Best restaurant in... More

Chin's is a top-notch Chinese restaurant with a wonderful menue. It was recently re-decorated after a fire and the owners have done an excellent job with the decor. It is our favorite place in Charleston for Chinese food. They feature a good wine selection, in addition to a menue that guarantees a delicious entre' and/or appetizer for any patron. The... More

A casual dining experience in a well established, family owned and operated clean and well maintained facility in Kanawha City. Good enough to take home what ever may be leftover and definitely good enough for your next party. As new residents of this city, we have found this restaurant to be friendly, consistently fantastic and a wonderful dining experience worthy... More

Great place. Throwback chinese food before it got hijacked by the Asian version of Outback Steakhouse/Applebee's.
