“Loud music destroyed a dinner experience”
Review of Chin Chin

Chin Chin
Ranked #277 of 6,670 Restaurants in Sydney

Restaurant details
Neighbourhood: Surry Hills
Description: A quintessentially Australian take on Asian food, the trademark Chin Chin taste is a carefully blended mix of freshness, spice, heat, exotic herbs and an obsessive need to perfectly balance all of these elements. Chin Chin lives by the philosophy that eating and drinking should be fun and relaxing much like our way of life.

Had dinner there with friends.Have been there couple of times before. Complained about the music being ridiculously loud. Even the staff agreed. This time the whole experience was destroyed by the loudness again. Your food id good but I refuse to spoil my dinner experience again. Good bye Chin Chin. There are other restaurants that offer great food and don't blow your ear drums !

After 2.5 hours we finally got a seat in this massively popular restaurant! And it was worth every second of waiting. Service was amazing, food was incredible and the whole atmosphere was fun and relaxed. Highly recommend the duck with lime and coconut sauce, the massaman curry and the chicken wings. Can’t wait to go back!

Overall, we had a good night albeit with the confusion at the start but as soon as we settled down in the dining area, we picked up how this place worked and its concept.

Food wise there were many hits and just a few misses, Chin Chin has a strong and well-designed branding that extends across all parts of their business, it’s a trendy venue with music, arts and Asian food fusion blended into one, though not your place for a romantic, quiet candle lit supper.

We , a group of 4 , had dinner at Chin Chin last night. Terrific food and service but the music was ridiculously loud! Such a shame to ruin what is otherwise a terrific restaurant with great staff. We won’t be back.

I ate here twice in the last 3 months, love every dish here. It's quite busy so suggest you arrive early (like 6:30pm) to get a table. Definitely try the kingfish sashimi, pork belly, beef... in fact , just try anything. The food is a fusion of Southeast Asian food. Some dishes are on the spicy side so it's not for kids or people who can't take spicy. Sorry I didn't have many pic of the dish 'cos we attacked the food as soon as it arrived. Hungry! what can I say? :)
