Service is so good here and the food is amazing, only negative is that the food comes out almost at the same time, we ordered plenty of dishes to share some hot, cold and raw and were all on the table wishing 10 minutes of...More

Such hype. Such a let down. Packed into tables so close to other dinners it is uncomfortable. Ordered food, it all arrived on mass 6 minutes later - including hot food. Gave the impression of plates waiting stacked up in kitchen. Food average. Better quality...More

We had a fantastic feast at Chin Chin, the food and service was excellent. There was going to be quite a wait for a table but the waitress managed to get us seated very quickly, we were really happy about that!

Fantastic Food. We had to wait for a table but we expected that. Cocktails were a little dissapointing as they contained mostly ice. But we came for the food and we were not dissappointed.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

Hi, Thanks for the query. Correct - a bit like a private table, but with the buzz and vibe of the place which is all part of the experience, you won't have a quiet or peaceful private area. If you can get past that hurdle... More

I am not sure if it does have high chairs but bear in mind it is extremely noisy, busy and can be a long wait for a table if you arrive after 5.30pm. You may be best to go at 5.00pm and hopefully seated straight away. On our... More
