Because ChinChin is so popular we tried for a late lunch and we were able to go straight in. We sat at the bar which is fun as you get to chat to the staff! The food was totally delicious, the staff...charming and the atmosphere...More

Visiting from Perth, I knew a little but not a lot about Chin Chin other than the fact it was a go-to. Boyfriend and I allocated the Friday night to go for dinner and didn't plan too much on time. We got there to a...More

Worth all the hype and raves I heard about it. We enjoyed the chefs selections, and thoroughly enjoyed every morsel. We had about an hours wait for a table but spent that catching up with our friend in the downstairs bar.

They have had lovely food but suffer from complacency after so long at the top. Food should have been awesome as in the past but dry and soggy tonight.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary

even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
