Really is the buzz of town ATM. Busy place. Food is outstanding with a great selection. Thought $35 for a serve of satay and a glass of wine was overpriced but both were excellent. Place is always paced so I guess they can charge what they like. Going to try the 'feed me' option next time. Service is excellent with really fantastic staff.

We had to wait over 90 mins on a Saturday evening but at least they take your details down and text you when your table is ready. I have to say the food was sublime, the $66 feed me option is best value, drinks very pricey but too be expected. Def worth making a special trip for, it's extremely noisy inside though.

We arrived at 2:30pm - for either a late lunch or early dinner. Advantage? No waiting! Our party of 4 was seated immediately. The extensive menu was explained and highlighted by (1) what was very hot (2) what was most popular (3) what was good for gluten free.

Totally enjoyed everything offered including the wine which was perfectly selected.

Fabulous place for a food adventure. Great staff! Worth all the accolades I have heard all the way down to Tasmania!

We got lucky. Apparently there's almost always a wait here, but we arrived at 2:30 on a weekday and were seated immediately.

The menu is impressive, BUT...if you're hungry just tell your server "Feed me." For AU $66 pp, you'll get a feast of 7,8, 9 courses. Worth every penny. Every dish was sensational.

Chin Chin is one of my Fav restaurant in melbourne. The food is not cheap but you really get what you pay for. They don't accept reservation for small group, so if you are planning to visit pls arrive early for dinner. Otherwise you may have to wait for 1+Hour.

Although the restaurant is crowded and this is probably not a place for a candle light dinner. But the food is truly amazing. Great Flavour and very Authentic. (With a bit of a twist)
I tried nearly everything from the menu and it's all great.

Expect to pay about 50$ pp for 1 drinks + 1 main, share entree.
