I really do not know what has happened to this restaurant. It used to be great, but the food on this and our previous visit was truly appalling. The starter sizes are half what they used to be. The three mains we chose we all dry and overcooked, it really felt like the food was precooked then reheated. It is a shame as this was a regular restaurant for us, I doubt we will go back
Dear Redman, thank you for sharing your feedback. We are truly sorry about your experience; which is not at all the type of impression we wish to give our guests. I regret to read the food fell short of expectations. This is not the standard we work to, and we regret that we could not wow you on this occasion. Our Chef will review and address your comments. I hope we can welcome you again, and win back your trust in us in the future! Best Regards, Federica
Great food. Good service. Good value for money on the whole but sadley for us, way too noisy.
Thank you for the review, Thegrange. We are happy to read that you liked the food and service! We regret you found the atmosphere too noisy for your liking though. We hope this will not deter you from having you again back in the future! All the best, Federica
Lovely atmosphere. Very professional and attentive staff. It features a customer facing kitchen in which you can see the chefs which increases your trust seeing them hard at work cooking
Thank you for your lovely review, Tamika! We're very happy to see you enjoyed your experience with us thanks to our friendly team. We look forward to seeing you back soon, Warm regards - Barbara
The staff were absolutely lovely but the food was very basic & in some cases poorly cooked.
The rice was extremely sticky & the salmon I ordered lacked flavour. For a £30 meal I probably could have got the same standard elsewhere for half the price
Thank you for sharing your feedback. I am happy to see you found our team friendly, though I am sorry to see the food fell short of expectations. This is not the standard we work to and we regret that we could not wow you on this occasion. Our Chef will review and address your comments. I hope we can welcome you again and exceed your expectations in future. Warm regards, Lucy
A lovely meal again, with very good service for us (but not a neighbouring table, where they missed an entire meal for one guest!). Tables are spaced well which is good for Covid adherence but makes the atmosphere less vibrant. The menu is very much reduced for food and wine which is a shame, but what we had was very good.
Thank you for sharing your review, StevenB. We are happy to hear that you had a lovely meal with us and enjoyed the service as well! We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future, and we hope to turn that four into a five the next time. Best Regards, Federica
Not what it was.... must be post lockdown... new chefs or something... food was bland, tastless and seemed ready made... no buzz ot the place ... kitchen dynamics very flay... wine list too small... Black.cod no longer on menu... after many years of great experiences ...sadly we will no longer be attending...
Dear AndrewC, thank you for sharing your feedback. We are sorry to hear we have fallen short of expectations and that you did not enjoy the food as you did before! This is not at all indicative of the standards so many of our guests have come to know and love and will share your comments with the Restaurant Manager for review. Nonetheless, we're disappointed you didn't have the stay you hoped for as a whole and we hope you'll choose to give us another chance in the future. Best Regards, Federica
Lovely food, fairly reasonably priced for that tier as well. Left incredibly full and the bill was 2/3 what I was expecting so that’s good! Our waiter was very friendly and they made a nice gesture as I’d mentioned it was our anniversary. The interior is modern looking but feels a little bare and empty. This could be due to it just not being that busy on the day we went, though. Music was on point and not too loud, appreciated that. Overall had a lovely meal. Highly recommend the Korean Pork Belly although ordinarily I would have a veg option - there just wasn’t too much to choose from on that front. It was worth breaking the rules for though ;)

Thank you for the review, markf. We are happy to read that you liked the food and enjoyed the service, even though we regret we didn't really amaze you on this occasion. We hope to welcome you again in the future, and impress you better the next time! Best Regards, Federica
First time back to this restaurant after many many years and felt very disappointed, ambience felt more like a cafeteria, fish platter as starter 8 pieces of fish each about the size of half a matchbox .. !! Beef rib for main lacked any kind of spice , and jasmine rice no hint of jasmine and clumped together, in balance they refunded the price of the rice , not been out for ages and was looking forward to a special anniversary meal .. left feeling very disappointed..
Dear Carl, thank you for the review. I am disappointed to see your recent experience at our restaurant did not meet your expectations, this is not at all the impression we would like to leave! We appreciate your valuable feedback as it helps us identify the areas we can improve the guest experience. I do hope that despite your experience on this occasion, you will choose to visit us again, as we would love the opportunity to really wow you and win back your trust in us! Best Regards, Federica
Food barely had any flavour. The beef taco starter was the smallest taco I've ever seen, and all it had inside was cold minced beef. Sushi was not nice at all you could tell it had not been made fresh and had been sitting in the fridge for two days. Beef salad tasted of nothing. We left after the sushi and went somewhere else for burgers. Crazy prizes for incredibly bland food, was really surprised and disappointed as the reviews from other people had been so good. Nothing chino or Latino about the food.
Dear AlessandraW, thank you for the review. We usually receive such praise for our food, it is disappointing this is not your experience on this occasion. I wish we would have heard about it during your visit, as we would have loved to turn it around for you and ensure you had a wonderful time. I sincerely hope we can welcome you again and exceed your expectations in the future. Kind regards, Federica

We were given a table that seems to be unwiped as you can see lots of fingerprints around. Our first starter was placed on our table and by then the waiter noticed we don't have plates and cutleries yet. After 5mins second starter came. We ordered sides with our main course but we ended up eating it first as our main course arrived half an hour later. On the other hand, the manager I guess offered a complimentary glass of wine to compensate us. Our table were cleared and no one offered if we want a dessert. We need to ask for the menu again. It was such an awful evening for us. It was our first night in Nottingham and we were so disappointed. It's very pricy and we left the restaurant not even half full.
Great food as usual, we are fairly regular visitors to Chino Latino. Had temperature taken on arrival and then taken to socially distanced table. A little slow to deliver food at first but this is understandable in the current circumstances, when we mentioned the delay to the staff they were quick to respond.
Dear David, I am delighted to learn that overall you enjoyed your visit at Chino Latino Nottingham. I am glad to hear that the staff were quick to respond on your waiting time. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Kind Regards, Marc Gomez Chino Latino Restaurant Manager
Having been to the restaurant on many occasions I found this visit to be less of a special occasion. The menu was not as extensive as normal the food was only average yet the cost was the same.
Dear Tony, I am sorry to hear that in this occasion we have let you down. Please contact the Restaurant directly should you wish to discuss your visit further. We hope you choose to dine with us again in the near future. Best Regards, Marc Gomez Chino Latino Restaurant Manager
We had gone to Nottingham to eat at Sat Bains' restaurant. On the 2nd night we decided to try Chino Latino.
This was a truly delicious experience. Great welcome from a young woman (it was her first night) and excellent service from our server. The menu was eclectic and it was difficult not to choose everything!
We are foodies and were a bit cautious because this restaurant is part of a hotel and that can mean variable quality. Not Chino Latino! It was really delicious - everything cooked to order. Even a couple of hiccups with items taking a bit of time didn't matter as it was all soooo good.
I'm seriously considering another trip to Nottingham so that we can visit this restaurant again.
Dear HJC37, I am delighted to learn that your server provided an excellent service and that you enjoyed the food. I have shared your compliments with the staff and they were happy to see you enjoyed your time with us. We look forward to welcoming you back soon! Kind Regards, Marc Gomez Chino Latino Restaurant Manager
Excellent food and attentive service. We were well cared for and shall definitely return.
Dear gdutczak, I am delighted to learn that you enjoyed your visit at Chino Latino Nottingham. We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future. Kind Regards, Marc Gomez Chino Latino Restaurant Manager
Limited menu options which was a shame but food was fantastic as normal
Fantastic dishes , flavours complentary , the beef was succulent a real pleasurable experience. However on my return I would expect something more exciting on my desert platter .
OTHER A 10 food sensation.
Dear Barry, I am delighted to learn that you enjoyed your visit at Chino Latino Nottingham. I am sorry to hear that we did not meet your expectations with our dessert platter and we hope we can impress you with it on your next visit. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Kind Regards, Marc Gomez Chino Latino Restaurant Manager
2nd visit to this restaurant and chose the same set menu since we enjoyed it so much last time. Starters and mains were just as good as we remembered but the dessert was disappointing - defrosted cheap strawberry cheesecake instead of mango; chocolate orange fondant wasn't fondanty - it was overcooked; fresh fruit was fine but no sorbet. Restaurant was quiet and was very bare - presumably due to covid? Staff paid good attention to Covid safety measures - cutlery in sealed packages so cutlery not touched directly by staff. Tables well spaced. Friendly attentive service.
Great tasty food , nice ambience and service was really good ! We very much enjoyed our dinner and will be back !
Dear Barbora, I am delighted to see that you enjoyed your visit at Chino Latino Nottingham. We look forward to welcoming you back. Kind Regards, Marc Gomez Chino Latino Restaurant Manager

Dear EmmaD, I am delighted to see that you enjoyed your visit at Chino Latino Nottingham. We look forward to welcoming you back. Kind Regards, Marc
First time open in a while and under strange circumstances but the front of house staff were good help apologetic the food starters were awesome small plate was disappointing bland tasteless the mains while looking great tasting great served on cold plate puree with the salmon was stone cold and spoiled the dish how ever it is the first time we have had any disappointment so will be back and put it down to reopening teething problems hot food should not be served on cold plate
Hi, the starter was lovely, the wine was good apart from a bit expensive..... but the chicken Thai curry was terrible!!!! Luke warm and just stuffed full of vegetables that it was like a weak stew .......... + there was some sort of hair on one of the glasses!! 🤦♀️.. don’t think we will be going back for a long time or recommending..
I’m afraid very disappointed with everything, we were two of us for a Saturday evening meal , ordered bottle of white with the £45 tasting menu, service was slow, wine arrived and was warm, was put on ice at the waitress insistence, we asked for the manager to whom we have to explain the unacceptable fact that a £38 white wine bottle was tabled warm, he offered 3 alternatives we went for the mediocre same price Pinot Grigio, food arrived in a patchy way, the starters were Unpleasantly fridge cold, then waited long time for the mains, the meat was over cooked , we asked for medium rare, and the rest over spiced. Deserts were decent though. The worst, the atmosphere at first was lovely then around 9.45 pm the lights went up and they started setting tables up for breakfast, we were not yet finished with our meal, it looked as if we were kicked out from a busy Mac Donalds in the middle of nowhere. Definitely not worth £120. Service was reasonable and have to say polite, but perhaps management should consider better training for its staff, and better overall customer experience. Finally the toilets were shockingly dirty, too gross to explain in here. We were very disappointed indeed; we will not come back.
Nice food and settings.
The music was a bit too loud and we couldn’t hear ourselves talk at times.
The food came out very random. The service from the waiting staff was also very poor.
