They don't do it like Chin's these days. It's a very elegant, relaxing, old school Chinese restaurant. Probably the most authentic fine-dining Chinese in the area. The food is prepared fresh and is always delicious. The menu has a lot to choose from. Perfect for a quiet evening out with a date for delicious food. It has a fine-dining feel... More

I ordered Shrimp with lobster sauce for my wife, and crab rangoon for myself, to go. The prices are 30 to 40% higher than other chinese restaurants, in the Charleston area. That's fine, if the food is good. But, the food wasn't good. The Crab Rangoon was terrible, tasted like it was cooked the day before. Very little filling inside,... More

Mr. Chin and family have been serving up tasty Chinese for years in this little spot. The restaurant is simple and clean, and the food is consistently fantastic - freshly prepared, served steaming hot - egg rolls are not to be beat! They also do take-out and call-ins. Hours are limited to lunch and dinner, closed for a few hours... More

We visited Chin's because of the great reviews, so we were excited to try it. The restaurant decor is very nice and the customer service was great. There were four people in our party, and we each ordered a different entree. We all agreed that this is the worst Chinese food we've every had. Sorry.

Anytime we are near Charleston we make sure to stop at Chin's! The pork fried rice is the best I've ever had! We've never had a bad meal there! The egg rolls are very good and so different from other restaurants. The food is fresh, no buffet!
