Yum Cha was hit and miss. However loved what was a hit namely the squid, rice and spring rolls. Would definitely go a la carte next time.

Chin chin used to be amazing. Now the food is below average and it’s ridiculous pricey. You’ll get better food at a cheap Asian restaurant for 1/4 price. $20 for 4 ting cold spring rolls. All the food came out cold and lacking in flavor or wow. Really really average and disappointing. A complete waste of money

This is the second I've had a team dinner here and it was just as good as the first time. They've got a great banquet menu that catered to all dietary requirements, an extensive wine list with delicious cocktails, friendly service and everyone enjoyed themselves. I would highly recommend.

Words just cannot describe how amazing & creative the dishes were. Never tasted anything like it. Every bite was magical.
And what made it even more delightful was the incredible service provided by ALL staff.

Food and Service excellent. We were group of 7 and placed in a booth which worked really well as far amount of room. However, and there is a however, we could not hear each other even if we talked loudly and we did not hear the waitress as she explained how the evening was going to work. Part of going out with a group is the ability to communicate and this really did not happen. However good the food and the service which i felt was excellent I cannot recommend this place until the background

I was disappointed with the food. I have dined several times at the Melbourne restaurant and expected the food to be of the same quality, but sadly did not experience that same quality.

I went to Chin Chin last night for my second visit in 3 weeks. We went with a group of 18 for a birthday celebration. The food was NEXT LEVEL amazing.We had the "Feed Me" banquet and it did not disappoint. Every dish was better than the last and we did not leave hungry. The atmosphere was perfect and service even better. Thank you Chin Chin. I will most definitely be returning....Again and again!

My boyfriend and I had the most amazing experience at Chin Chin, all thanks to our server Molly. She was energetic, attentive, knowledgable, personable and just an excellent human being.
I’m vegetarian and she took the time out to explain all the meals I could have, and what could be made vegetarian if I wished.
We dine out quite frequently and it’s rare to have a server with such care to her customers, she is an excellent addition to your team there.

Have had many lunch sessions at Chin Chin but this was a disappointing meal. Staff somewhat attitude poor. We asked if the herb salad on the pork dish could be on the side our waitress looked at us like we were from another world. Salt and pepper squid poorly cooked and batter clumped together, prawn spring rolls overcooked and tasteless.

This is the 5th time I've eaten here so I was keen to take my guest...but we just had too many people asking us how everything was and for our orders, so that seemed a bit mixed up. My wine didn't arrive, and most notably was that two out of the three dishes we ordered were REALLY small. The smoked salmon betel leaves and pork stir fry were tiny yet we received a bowl of rice suited for 10 pax. I think they served us the foodsize for a banquet...ie a muck up. Sorry I normally love you guys.

This was my partner and I's second time dining at Chin Chin. We originally dined with a large group a few weeks ago, then chose to celebrate our anniversary there on Friday (27/09), because we love it so much!

The gentleman who greeted us at the door both times is the epitome of good service, and great customer experience.

I continue to adore the ambience, music selection, drink offerings, ridiculously friendly wait staff and of course, the food!

The Feed Me Banquet is a must!

Lack of service, food took forever to come out between courses, very average, not worth the money. Vast difference between this place and Chin Chin Melbourne, which I highly rate.

I have been to Chin Chin for multiple corporate events and have thoroughly enjoyed it but last night I went with my partner and we had a spectacular time. The servers were very friendly and attentive. The food was spectacular; special mention to the prawn noodle stir fry and the twice-cooked short rib - it was to-die-for.

We got the 'Feed Me' Option, which gives the chefs free rein to feed us whatever they felt like and it was amazing value for money.
