“Expected more”
Reviewed 16 October 2012

Nice selection on the menu and reasonably priced. The restaurant also has a lovely atmosphere. Unfortunately the food was so over seasoned it was inedible. All I received was an apology, no alternative or money off. Left feeling hungry and disappointed.

Dear Tripadvisor,

Sometimes there's the odd review that gets published that leaves us all perplexed. Not one of us can remember a customer complaining about their dish being over seasoned or inedible. Even if a customer leaves food after we have checked back on them, we double check to see if they were ok. As we are a small, intimate restaurant we know exactly what has happened on each table and discuss it at the end of each service.

If a customer had complained to us that they could not eat their chosen dish we would most certainly change it for them straight away and ensured the guests accompanying them would feel comfortable during this time.

Myself and the team at Chin! Chin! are extremely passionate for great customer service and we would never knowingly allow a customer to leave feeling 'hungry and disappointed'. I'm very upset to read this, and if this is a genuine reviewer I would ask you to call and ask for me so we can discuss your experience?

Kind regards,
Darren

“Great food and service”
Reviewed 14 October 2012

Food is delicious (recommend the belly pork!!) we even found room for dessert and coffee- not because we were hungry but because everything tasted so good. Even though there were 2 large groups the service was very attentive. Definitely recommend.

“30th Birthday Party - Great food, location & v friendly + helpful staff”
Reviewed 8 October 2012

I booked Chin! Chin! for a party after having an excellent meal there previously.

34 of us went and the venue was ideal for that size - from the very start of the process of organising the party Chin! Chin! were very accommodating and provided a very reasonable set menu for everyone.

Everyone I have spoken to really enjoyed themselves, loved the food and said that the staff were really friendly.

“Best Restaurant in Bristol”
Reviewed 7 October 2012

Easily the best restaurant in Bristol, serving really great homely food. It's excellent value and the service is always perfect. The restaurant always has a great atmosphere especially at night and the cosiness means it feels very personal. Have eaten all over Bristol and I still come back here time and time again. Trust me and book.
