Food is excellent, however the strictly enforced 2 hour time limit made the meal feel rushed, given we were a large group.

great dinner with warm wonderful service! ChinChin has its own sydney style vibe now, and its a great experience. Service is warm , casual (in a nice way) , and very attentive. There is a great vibe amongst the crew here that creates a great feeling. The food is zingy, tasty and beautifully presented. The social distancing table set up I think makes it better than before. Highly recommend dining here !

Small portions and very expensive. Food was similar to your average local corner thai spot but triple the price and half the size. More of a place to add to instagram to say you were there.

Lovely fresh food and good service. Music was too loud and felt like I was in a nightclub. They did turn it down a notch after requesting, although still too loud making conversation laboured.

Enjoyed the varied and delicious food otherwise.

Very good food and extensive wine list. Reasonably expensive and very good service given the food limitations we gave them.
Quite loud. Could turn down the sound level.

I have been to Chin Chins in the past and been underwhelmed however last night was a very pleasant surprise. We chose from the menu and all dishes were super tasty, particularly the pork roll ups, chicken wings and Tom yum fried rice. The staff were super friendly and knowledgeable and this time we did not feel rushed in any way. I will be going back!

Booked an early table at 5 for a quick bite to eat. Great music but I still found I walked out with sore throat from yelling to be heard- very busy.
Food was excellent. Butter chicken was delicious. The service was good but felt it was a little stand offish when we didn’t order a lot of food.
The only thing that bothered me was that when the bill came, there was a “R U OK day $2 donation “ on the bill. They didn’t ask for consent anywhere at any time....happy to donate but automatic addition?

The food was extremely salty. Between 3 people, we had ordered 4 dishes - the rendang curry, barramundi and pork salad, pork roll-ups and the pork and Thai basil with crackling. However, despite not ordering very much, we couldn't finish the food as it was too salty. For the portion and quality of the dish, the food was overpriced and overhyped on social media. My friends and I will probably never go back again.

Pork and Barramundi both totally overcooked, dry, bit burnt, waiter distant, rude, unhelpful. Overcrowded during Covid.

Every. Single. Bite. was met with “yum”, “oh my god”, or soooooo good”. The Hawker Hall yum cha menu was great value, with just enough food to leave with a full belly, and not stuff yourself silly. The cocktails were exceptional. Highly recommend the Tommy Says Relax.

We have been to ChiChin several times, and each time the food and service has been excellent. It has a great vibe with great music play list. Whilst its a little on the pricy side it's wonderful experience.

Staff were very helpful and cheerful. Constant check-ins without being too much which was nice. We ordered the ‘Feed Me 1’ set menu and dishes were delicious, even got to choose a couple from the menu which restaurant was accomodating. Finally, dessert came out with a candle as we told the waiter earlier in the night, we’re celebrating an anniversary - loved this!! All in all, 10/10 night for us

Good food, average service. Didn’t feel welcome!!! Kingfish was amazing. Would come back however not any time soo as we felt staff were not interested and couldn’t speak to the menu when we had questions on what to order. We eat out a few times of week and had expected a high standard but disappointed.

Highly disappointed made a booking still had to wait in line outdoors freezing then waited again indoors on a couch for our table. We ordered 3 dishes, when ordering one of our dishes our waiter asked us how we like chilli we told her no chilli at all and the dish ended up coming out drenched in chilli it was too hot for us to eat. The pad see ew tasted like plastic and one of the beef pieces were uncooked it was uneatable. We only enjoyed the pork pancakes and our alcoholic beverages.

We had an excellent meal from the “feed me” menu in January 2020 and were excited to return. We felt that the quality of the meal had dropped significantly on the second visit. We left feeling disappointed and a bit ripped off. The highlight of the meal was the panacotta dessert and the king fish sashimi. All I remember from the rest was piles of green leaves and carbohydrates. There was barely any protein in e rest of the meal. I felt this was a cost saving measure on the part of the restaurant
