Nice atmosphere. Busy, even at 5pm on a Sunday. Good choice of gluten-free food. Enjoyed. Easy to find non-spicy food too.

This restaurant was recommended by my daughter. It was a huge disaster and disappointment choosing this venue. Ordered the crab fried rice which did not have any crab. The rice was gluggy with lots of lumps. It looked as if it was pre-prepared and reheated...More

Chin Chin Melbourne became a local institution very quickly, and there is a reason why. The bar is extensive and the food is top notch - highlights in particular for me are the pork ribs and the fried chicken, but everything is sensational and the...More

My first visit to Chin Chin and it won't be my last extremely amazing food and service. Best to arrive early to avoid a long wait for a table. I loved it so much that i came home with their cook books.

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
