“Definitely Worth A Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

After hearing amazing things about this restaurant we decided we would go see what all the fuss was about, and we wasn't disappointed. We went for the 'FEED ME' menu which consisted of 7 dishes between the 2 of us. Loved it all bar the 'son in law eggs' great service, and we only waited 5 mins. The queue did build as we were waiting, I'd defiantly recommend going in at lunch. A must visit to all visiting/living in Melbourne.

“AMAZING!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

We have wanted to go to Chin Chin for a while and finally got there on a Friday evening recently. We were going to the theatre so got there at 5.30pm, there was already a waitlist as it is so popular, but that was no problem as we put our name and number down and headed down to GoGo bar downstairs for a drink. About 20 minutes later our table was ready! We had 3 entrees to share and a main of Wagyu Beef stir fry with rolled noodles and a side of chinese greens. The food was amazing, the best asian cuisine we have had in a while. The wine list is also impressively extensive and good. We will definitely be visiting Chin Chin again soon!

“Trendy Asian Fusion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013 via mobile

A 40 minute wait down stairs in the charming bar was worthwhile. The service was very friendly and advised intelligently on how to order. There was a good selection of fish and vegetarian dishes and it was delicious.

The ingredients were fresh and tasty and the 5 dishes we shares between two were very filling. The kingfish wings were a crunchy novelty and the fried sardines were delicious. Tofu lovers will delight too!

I had been recommended Chin Chin a few times and am glad I finally ate there and will do again.

“Yum yum!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

We're shown straight to 2 seats at the food preparation bar at 5:30 on a sat night. Loved watching what they were doing and guessing which menu items they were. Loved the food. Amazing flavours and sauces. Had the raita, pork and crab balls, barramundi and pork salad. The last only had 2 very tiny identifiable pieces of barra but was still good, but not the best we had
