A client suggested we have dinner at this neighborhood restaurant, had passed it many times but never went in....what a very pleasant surprise. Well decorated, staff very attentive and the manager Jimmy can only be described as "An old style host with a smile, a warm way about him and a great conversationalist- a funny guy" Now to to the...

Was wandering the streets with the kids trying to find a place that would check all the boxes - decent enough for the missus to want to visit and food the kids would like. Saw this place and decided to venture it... that was a good decision. The owner is really friendly and even though we were all dressed like... More

A fantastic meal and very friendly. The portions are large and the food delicious. 2 adults and 2 teenagers (who eat like adults!) 3 dishes with rice was plenty. The price for what we ordered was fine.

We ate here last week and brought our one year old with. They put us in a private room which was probably more for their sake than ours haha! But we still really appreciated that. They brought out food for her promptly. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The chicken I got was perfectly cooked. It was crispy, flavorful, and... More

Had a wonderful meal with my daughter during Restaurant Week. The food was very good and abundant. Ended up taking home doggie bags! The service was very friendly and attentive. Will definitely be going back!

My BFF and I wanted to share a special evening dinner during NYC restaurant week near the hotel she was staying at. After reviewing other Trip Advisor comments about 3 area restaurants, sorry to say we settled on Chin Chin. We were greeted and seated immediately upon entering. The waiter brought the menus which were dirty and had a laundry... More

Friendly staff was able to get us in without reservations and were very attentive. My husband and I shared the duck and my son was very happy with his choice as well

A group of us ate here this past Saturday and never having heard of this place before, I really didn't have too much expectations, since I was told it was a Chinese restaurant. Wow...was I in for a very big surprise! Upon entering, the ambience is very lovely. The host and servers were very attentive and accommodating. And the food... More
