We went to the 4140 Oceanside Blvd. location, but this Carlsbad location was always awesome. The other location mentioned was just as good, but it didn't look as nice inside. It's just much smaller.

Chin's Carlsbad has now closed. Nearby Overseas Restaurant is available as an alternate and is okay. There's a P.F. Chang's in town also.

Chinese food is not supposed to be sweet for the most part. Everything we got at Chin's was sweet and super Americanized. This is not Chinese food the way it is supposed to be cooked. We have not returned.

Even though Chin's is a chain the food tastes like the family run chinese restaurants I am used to in Vancouver. The seafood dishes have heaping amounts of seafood and they do a great job of moderating the spicyness to taste.

First thing we heard was George calling a genuine welcome as we arrived. The place looks and smells good. Waitress was very helpful and amusing. We're going back. I like it much better than the other Village Chinese restaurant.

I've eaten at Chin's Carlsbad many times over the years. It's never been any better than "ok". The food lacks flavor, texture and fresh quality. I will not go back there again, it just always leaves me wanting something else.
