“So good even the mice can't stay away”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

The food at chino Latino is good. Really good. Unfortunately so good that on my last visit there was a small mouse scuttling between the tables! A small child had dropped some food and the mouse was eagerly nibbling away. Frankly it didn't put me off the delicious food but when informing the staff that they probably should do so something about it were informed that "we're by the river what do you expect?". I would expect not to dine with a mouse?

“Amazing...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012 via mobile

We went here a day after going to yauatcha, and I wasn't sure it could be better. It was probably the best food of ts genre. the food highlight was the sirloin steak on hot coals, it was sensational. The service team were great with good personality supporting movember. So it maybe off the beaten track, but it is well worth the high ranking, so go and visit.

“A little bit of research pays dividends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

After looking through reviews on here I decided to book a table for a Saturday evening. The restaurant is in a hotel but visible to the right from the front door. The principle is to share by having the dishes in the middle, there are tasting menu options but our group opted for everyone to choose one dish each. This worked superbly and everyone enjoyed all the dishes selected.
It is expensive but the quality of the: food;service and experience means for a special occasion it is well worth it.
