Great spot for a family celebration. We ordered the feed me menu and were not disappointed. Service was attentive and efficient and made for a great night. Highly recommend Chie Chie though it is extremely noisy so may not suit someone hard of hearing

Perfect date night well spent! I have been to Melbourne Chin Chin for lunch but Sydney dinner is 100x better. What an experience will definitely be coming back :)

We had the yumcha banquet. There was a long gap between the dishes.

Nutella bun was a great concept but the bun came out very dry.

There was six of us, 5 of us had yumcha and 1 had ala carte. The yumcha was average, felt mass produced and flavours where covered up with spice and oil. Compared to previous times i have been i was disappointed. The Ala carte meal was good and drinks were also good for the price point. Staff were leaning over guests and service was not the best, for example asked for the menu to order another drink, received the menu, then no one came to take the order so had to track down the staff

Excellent food and service however the two issues were that even though we had a booking we had to wait in line outside and there were clearly no social distancing regulations in place.

Always excellent food but the service just lets this place down every single time I visit there!!

We did the $55 yum cha special and the food was delicious and at a good price too but from arrival until departure the service is slow, inattentive and seeped with attitude. It’s such a shame because my chin chin Melbourne experiences have consistently been very good.

Couldn’t have been more disappointed. Took my partner for her birthday and the food was average, so saucy and poorly plated. Service wasn’t very attentive, plates took ages to be cleared.

Nothing like the Melbourne chin chin. We booked Chin Chin yet were seated in Go Go Bar, so we missed the atmosphere of chin chin dining. Not impressed and will definitely not be recommending.

The staff were so accommodating to our taste and made changes to our “Feed Me” banquet to suit us. The banquet was so generous that we took home a whole untouched plate and many other plates were hardly touched. We would recommend to others however be ready for some chili and fried foods.

Asian fusion at it's very very best!! Amazing variety of tastes and textures with lots of little surprises. My kingfish sashimi was the best I have ever eaten .... ever! The beef pad seuw was exceptional. Great vibe, though be prepared for the loud music.

Dining at Chin Chin is always brilliant. We now have our set favourites to order but each time we go, we try to order one thing we haven’t had before. Never disappointed.
I had received a voucher from my hubby and boys for Christmas and this was the first opportunity to go in this crazy year! The fact that my family were all there, enjoying excellent dishes altogether, made it special. My eldest son loves dumplings so he was wrapped the yum ya menu was available.

Service was poor, it’s like a conveyor belt. The first couple of courses were good and came at the right time. As the night went on the last couple of courses were poor especially an aubergine dish that was sloppy and greasy. Towards the end we were waiting a long time for the final courses.

Food is always exceptional at Chin Chin be it Sydney or Melbourne. We chose the $89 set menu and it was delicious 😋. One tip - they bring too many dishes all at once, so ask them for only 2 at a time.
One gripe. We asked 3 times for them to turn the music down as we were shouting across the table to talk. This was met with blatant disinterest and completely ignored. I kind of think that it’s a service industry and you want ensure your customers are enjoying the ambience.

This was my first time here and I was very disappointed. Very over priced and the food is definitely not worth what they charge. I got the prawn egg noodle dish with hellfire chilli oil which was $35.5 and it came out relatively small looking burnt and like a sloppy mess. It was a $15 dish they charge double for. The double brownie was hard like a rock with sour tasting cream and music was so loud you have to shout. The servers came up to us every 5-10 minutes which was very rude and annoying

Food and service were excellent. Music was a little too load, felt like I was at a club. Could barely hold a conversation. More of a bar scene than a restaurant. But if you like the loud music, than everything else was awesome. Worth trying.

Food was great really delicious service while friendly was way below expectations order was not put through we waited almost an hour for our first dish and we had one more dish remaining which came about 30 minutes after we finished everything else and by that stage over waiting so we had to take it away we were given our drinks on the house but still quite disappointed with the experience

Ive been to a few restaurants in Sydney after lockdown restrictions lifted and the quality of food has dropped dramatically.

Fortunately chin chin is not one of them. The food was amazing, wine fantastic and service was super friendly.

Will be back soon

The service was really good, staff were very knowledgeable about the menu options. The Prawn Egg Noodle dish was amazing purely because of the chilli oil on the side which was amazing. other than that nothing special. The short ribs were not short, sweet or sticky like you want them to be. We got one Large rib in a sweet and sour sauce. The Tom Yum fried rice, was average I have had much better from Thai Patong. The drink list was extensive and I would go back for the drinks.

Excellent from start to finish. Service was attentive without being annoying, there’s a good list of wines & the food is sensational.

Don’t miss the beef rib, kingfis sashimi, Malaysian prawn curry & the desserts were also great (I find a lot of restaurants are a let down for this).

Shoutout to Ralph for being an excellent chef & top bloke too

Was happy with food quality.
Due to covid was satisfied with restrictive menu.
However we felt uncomfortable With the structure of seating considering COVID-19 restrictions. We sat as two with two tables back of chairs touching our chairs. Concerned with that after initial contact with front of house was scan QR code and waiver but then no further protocols in place within seating layouts.

I have eaten here a few times and have had an amazing variety of food for the $88 banquet menu.

This visit we received 3 poultry dishes, 2 chicken, 1 duck there was no pork or beef served to us which we were looking forward too. We also didn’t have any rice or noodle dishes so we left feeling unsatisfied.

The best restaurant I’ve ever dined at. Service was faultless - the most efficient I’ve ever encountered. The food was incredible, full of flavour, every dish we had from the Feed Me menu was delicious. I can’t wait to return and try the other dishes. 10/10!

King fish dish, padseuw and beef ribs were nice. Servings are tiny and pricey. Entree dishes were expensive as mains. Curry was salty and didn’t have variety of veg. There was too much of the eggplant. The menu didn’t say there was rice with the curry so we ended up ordering extra roti.

Was disappointed as we travelled quite far to try the jungle curry dish and the Sydney store did not have it. It was promoted so much on Instagram so it was a big let down.
