The Chinese might be good, but avoid the Thai. First, you get Chinese sides with your Thai dish. For some reason an egg roll, fried rice, and hot and sour soup doesn’t make it with Massaman curry. I want coconut soup, and steamed rice. And the curry isn’t so great either. Massaman is supposed to contain potatoes. This stuff has what appear to be frozen French fries thrown in. My Massaman curry looked like the Chinese chicken and mushrooms with a slightly different sauce. And the curry sauce didn’t taste like other Massaman’s I’ve had. It lacked the richness of coconut milk and the spice of the curry.

The wait staff is the stereotypical Chinese waiter, with little patience, barely polite, and just interested in turning the table. One person in our party just wanted egg fried rice and she and the waitress got into a circular conversation where she was told that she got fried rice with every lunch combo. My friend stated that she just wanted an order of fried rice; again, you get fried rice with every lunch combo. Finally my friend gave up and ordered some kind of eggplant thing. The wait staff is the stereotypical Chinese waiter, with little patience, barely polite, and just interested in turning the table.

If you must go here, stick to the Chinese offerings and don’t dare ask for anything that isn’t on the menu.

Busy place, service is fine, food is average. If you want a place for a quick lunch but don't need it to be expensive or have Top Chef quality, this is not a bad place. Kind of dark in there, might need some sprucing up, but, like I said, if you don't have much time, check it out.

Chin Chin is in the middle of a very busy business area. During the week it is a hub of activity as people come for lunch from their offices. We were there last night, Saturday night. It was very quiet inside, only our party of 7 and another table or two of customers. But there was a steady stream of customers coming in to pick up carry-out and delivery orders kept that delivery guy hopping too! Very busy place.

The food was very good, nothing fancy, but fresh and nice sized portions. The staff is very friendly and attentive. One of our appetizers was a plate of 6 wings. They made it 7, as they saw our party was of 7 people. :) Just a small gesture, but it did not go unnoticed.

I have been a customer here for years and have never had a bad meal here. Family owned and very friendly staff. Hot and sour soup is the best in town. I love the freshness of the food. They have a full bar and good desserts. Give them a try.
