The decor as you enter sets the mood for the chinese cuisine. Menu choice is wide and their service is good and fast. Though some of the items are a sort of indianised i would say their menu is close to chinese. Cost is slightly on the higher side,but for the ambience ande taste I would rate them a 4 on 5.

Having been a regular to Chin Chin many years ago, we decided to try it out again.
The trainee staff pour beer like tea into the mugs, the soups taste like starch water and is served before the drinks & starters, the 'crispy' calamari was soft and soggy (they tried to salvage it in vain by refrying and did'nt charge me for it), food quality was very average not something one would expect frm a 'old' place, the decor with the yellow rope lights makes the place look cheap.
Overall a total dissappointment, would never go back/nor advice anyone to go!

we went there with family and our baby daughter. Great ambiance. Lots of private space which i loved the most. My daughter was able to play and move around our table without any disturbance to others. The food was amazing. Easily the best Indian chinese restaurant with good value for money. We loved the complimentary dish offered by the chef made with lotus stem. Recommend for anybody wanting a good dining experience without too much noise and crammed space. The portions are quite generous.

This is where I tasted my first "Fried Ice Cream". Serves standard Chinese fare, don't miss the fried ice cream. Wonder how they fry ice cream? Its a chef's secret.
