Chin Chin Sydney
Chin Chin restaurant is open 11am till late, 7 days a week and focuses on South-East Asian cuisine with Benjamin Cooper at the helm as executive chef. We're modeled on the dining halls of Asia with a shared-eating concept and therefore operate on a walk-in only policy for groups of less than 8.
Awesome food and good atmosphere
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!
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.
Exceptional creative tasty food with an asian slant.
Very friendly and attentive service
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.
What a experience!the place is pretty cool, good music, beautiful people, the food.. OMG, I can’t remember last time I went on a rest and enjoyed every single dish.. cheff you’re another level! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 Thanks to Lina our waitress she made our experience way batter, so kind, always checking in on us ♥️ Joy another lovely and helpful waitress, always asking sure we were having the best service. Can’t wait to go back to this place and enjoy those AMAZING drinks🍸
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!
Food was amazing, we had a great table for 10, our waiter Tom was awesome and fun. Favourite lunch spot !!
Always a favourite and feel so lucky to live in Sydney and have it here!
The second time I visited Chin Chin and never been disappointed. Last night was amazing. We enjoyed everything we ordered. The staff are friendly, helpful, accommodating and approachable. Overall, we will recommend Chin Chin and surely will come back. Thank you again.
We had a blast and were well looked after for our Fathers Day celebration
Amazing food and ambience!
Chin Chin never disappoints. Yum :)
Loudest restaurant have ever been in. Food wS nice but it was a relief to leave. Music was so loud I couldn't hear my husband speaking from half a metre across the table.
Very good food provided by efficient & effective staff in a friendly & helpful manner.
Plenty of food choices on the menu and vegan friendly. Dj created a fun atmosphere and the place had a great feel.
Great menu, and meals were outstanding. Such eclectic menu choices
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?
Excellent food but noise levels are intolerable.
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.
The music was too loud, wine choices were unavailable and the staff could be more hospitable
So glad we have a Chin Chin in Sydney. Def one of my favourite restaurants. Service is great and food is even better. $69 100% worth it. Thanks for an amazing experience as always
Wonderful lunch at Chin Chin . Would highly recommend
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.
Yum Cha Cha Cha!The music, the food, the cocktails! The most fun you can have in a two hour seating!
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.
