The food was very good but no better than many other Thai restaurants I have been to. The wait time is absurd (even early in the night mid-week). Once you were seated it was impossible to carry on a conversation due to the overcrowding. The...More

Travelling with a business associate, it took us two shots to get into Chin Chin. This place is popular and you will probably have to queue. Sebastian & Co manage the queue in an extremely professional and efficient manner. He treats you like a human...More

Will never bother returning. It’s seems apparent that keeping people waiting for hours is a blatant attempt to extort more money for massively overpriced drinks. 2 hours and 45 minutes still waiting for a table

Visited Chin Chin last night with my daughter and 2 friends, we arrived at 630pm and had an one hour wait as you can’t book under 8 people. We waited at the bar downstairs which had a really great vibe and atmosphere, great drink list...More

The atmosphere caters for most people, young and older. There is music in the background that appears to be selected with the broad range in client ages in mind. We were very satisfied. It is funky and charming without the 'ritz' but hits the spot....More

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

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
