“Amazing quality, albeit expensive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

The food here is delicious- especially the corn fritters with chilli jam! However, the price point is quite high for the portion sizes.

“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

We arrived about 7.30 pm on a Monday night and were told there would be an hour wait for a table. So we went for a walk and had a drink at Young & Jacksons and then went back at 8.30 pm. The place was crazy busy and was still that way when we left at 10 pm. It was a little noisy and a little crowded but had an awesome vibe and seemed like THE place to be. The food was fantastic in taste, size and presentation and came out quickly. The drinks were also great and the service was was very friendly and efficient. Loved the decor and music as well and will definitely be back when next in Melbourne. Highly recommended.

“Fire in the Belly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

Even when the line is out the door, don't fear. Chin Chin's know how to keep it rolling without you feeling rushed when you're in there. This place packs a punch with its cuisine though. Tasty but with a good head of fire in your belly. Their Thai influence is dominated by chilli so it helps if you love them chillies back.

“This is why I live in Melbourne...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Can't recommend this restaurant enough. Food is absolutely delicious, highly recommend the barra & pork salad and also the main beef dish. This would have to be one of my favourite restaurants in Melbourne....perfect service, great atmosphere but get there early to avoid lining up for hours.
