We were recommended Chin Chin by a friend when she realised we were spending a weekend in Melbourne. We were worried we wouldnt get in as we had not booked and it was an extremely busy time. We were whisked up to the bar and that is were we ate some of the best food we'd tasted in a long... More

I bought my sister to Chin Chin so she could experience the amazing food selection. She is hooked and will be back as will I. I have been on a number of occasions bringing different ones each time. No one has been disappointed.

Sorry to say that the food wasn't what we have expected, very average and tasteless and above all was over priced.

This is another neighbourhood gem - delicious Asian food at reasonable prices, and a limited but good wine and beer list. Everything we have tasted on the menu is yummy and they do take away too.

One of Rathdowne Street's best and a favorite with all our family. Truly terrific dumplings and their chilli sauce is to die for. Highly recommended.

This divine little gem is my new favourite thing about Carlton North. The staff are friendly, attentive and despite the restaurant being full downstairs (as well as a function occurring upstairs) we never waited very long for anything. I love it that you can BYO as well. We started with some dumplings and the silkiest and most delicious Tofu dish... More

A little nice restaurant with good food and good service. The four of us all enjoyed our choices. You can also bring your own bottle of wine.

Just love the noodles and vegetable fried rice. At chin chin's vegetarians have plenty of choice. On a warm evening, dining on the footpath is refreshing.
