We had a gluten free person in our party
I was very specific when I make the booking & also when each meal was served we asked & confirmed if it was gluten free
However unfortunate the gluten free person in our party fell very ill overnight with a gluten attack & was sick most of today
I chose & booked chin chin due to the good gluten free options & was very disappointing

The dining experience I had with my partner was abysmal from the outset we felt rushed to order without even been asked to start with a cocktail/drink. We ordered a papaya salad that the menu stated it included chilli. We are tolerant to chilli on a mild level but this salad was ridiculously hot beyond enjoyable. It was so hot that we were unable to enjoy our next dishes due to our palate still having the affect of the extreme amount of chilli this salad contained.

Beautiful food.
Accomodating staff.
Unfortunately music too loud. Felt more like a nightclub if you are unfortunately placed under speakers. Staff did move us but music still more suitable for a bar than restaurant. Shame as they could probably turn it down several notches and they would still be booked out as food is always amazing.

I love ChinChin. The food is just so darn tasty.

It is an equally good place to have a meal with a friend or impress a client.

I was excited to go to Chin Chin again as I had only been once before for a drink and small meal.

I was happy with my entrees and cocktail but the mains were nothing special.

We had the panang curry and singapore noodles for the mains. The flavor profiles were average at best and quite disappointing.

We had $120pp banquet unfortunately lobster tails were over cooked and flavors over powered them. Entrees were lovely and fresh panacotta was perfect way to finish !

Food is exceptional!!! And very good value for your money! Only probably thing to be better is the music! It was a little loud and you can’t hear each other on the same table.

What started as a disappointment being sat right on the end of the kitchen in the hallway turned out to be a blessing in disguise. The place was literally pumping like a nightclub, both in music volume and in chaotic foot traffic - far from a nice and relaxed vibe. The music was so loud we couldnt hear the waiter and was screaming at the person sitting next to me. While most of the food we had was nice enough, I would consider it overpriced, especially the dumpling special (6 for $30).

Absolutely outstanding service by a young energetic wait staff. The food was amazing, full of flavour and perfectly cooked and well presented with good size portions. Only down side, albeit minor, is the level of noise especially for our 6.30 booking (plus we're old). But this did not detract from a great meal and I have no hesitation in recommending Chin Chin and we'll be back.

I just want to say how great our waiter was (gentleman with dark hair) at Surry Hills. I took some important clients out and he sorted the menu out for us so well, and had such a lovely attitude. He truly made the experience for us, thankyou!

Have been to the Melb restaurant many times. I felt the pressure to order the banquete which was way to much food and clearly other tables felt the same way as i saw many brown bags popping up as people left.

The chicken was dry and we got an extra desert as a result

Feed me is great value and we couldn’t eat it all. COVID set up was very good but staff too close and touchy feely. More a place for the young who already have poor hearing from loud music but we still had a good time and the food is worth the visit!

Fantastic!
Food was excellent, service was excellent.
Would definitely go again and recommend to others!!!
The only thing is we went on a Friday night and to talk to other people at our table we had to speak quite loud as the music was loud over the speakers. Would recommend turning down 1 level so we can at least speak across the table.

I love Chin chin and the food but was a bit disappointed with our night out. We only were allowed 90min booking and it was very rushed. We ordered cocktails and basically got them at the same time all our food came to the table. We then only had time for another glass of wine before told we had to leave. I understand there are restrictions but it should be two hours. I would not go again or recommend till you can stay for longer.

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!
