Chin Chin at the Residency has always been a fav of mine - especially for its Fried Icecream. Ive had it in every part of the country, but noone gets the fried icecream right - small enough to pop into ones mouth with the right batter consistency, and with just one bite, allows you to experience an explosion of flavours - delicate sweet honey, creamy vanilla icecream, and the subtle crunch of sesame seeds. Chin Chin gets it right every time!

Decor & Ambience - comfortable but could be upgraded. 1/5

Service - the team performed like a well oiled machine. 4/5

Food - we were a party of 7 - purely Non Veg :) The portions suggested were perfect and we loved the array of starters ordered. The cocktails were yum and the guys seemed to have loved the beer too - which might i add, is quite a rare experience in Chennai. Desserts...*wide grin* fried icecream!

Overall 3.5/5

One week ago we had a family get-together ( around 11) at Chin Chin at the Residency. The ambiance was pleasant. The food was definitely acceptable. I would rate the service as average though. I was curious about the fried ice-cream on the menu and it was enjoyable just for the first try but may be not again. Satisfying experience.

Food quality is just ok, staff a lot for them to learn to speak and serve. Too loud a music.Finally just an average restaurant.

Food is good, but service is pathetic, they don't even serve water, you'll have to complain to the chef only then they serve water, don't even try taking any guest of yours for dinner , the service will irritate them.
