This is my favorite restaurant in Chestnut Hill. Greeted by Henry with that familiar smile was the first sign the night would be good. The menu offers so many really enticing choices that it can be difficult to decide what to order sometimes. However, the hot and sour soup made its way to three of us. Then there were four... More

Dined at Cin Cin with a party of 8 and enjoyed a variety of selections. The food was delicious, reasonably priced, and quickly served. Our only problem was that upon arrival, the greeter didn't seem able to understand that we had a reservation. He did quickly find us a table, however, so all was well.

Had reservations at 7 for a table of four on a rainy but still warm Saturday night. I arrived 15 minutes early while my husband was trying to find parking as Chestnut Hill was very busy and the restaurant was packed. Henry, the host, got things under control sitting a few twos until our table was ready. Although I was... More

We've ordered a number of items for take-out over the years our son has lived in this area of PA. However, every order has steamed Dumplings on it! They are easily the best we have ever eaten. It is clear that whoever makes these knows what they are doing. The dumpling wrappers are so light and the filling is so... More

For years I have been hearing that CinCin is the best Chinese Restaurant in Philadelphia, and possibly the East Coast. I finally had dinner there, and was somewhat disappointed. To be fair I had very high expectations. I ordered the sesame chicken which I was expecting to be full of flavor and spice. It came out very bland and had... More

I've eaten in many Asian restaurants and this is, by far, the best I've ever had. Their General Tso's chicken is perfect and they have the best egg rolls! A must if you're visiting Chestnut Hill.

CinCin is an outstanding Asian-Fusion restaurant - we use both eat-in and take-outs. Always excellent food. We judge Asian restaurants by quality of dumplings - these are superb!

We arrived w/o a reservation, our mistake! They had a full house but the host let us know that some tables would open up soon. Within 15 mins, we were given a table for the 6 of us. Very gracious waitress, arrived promptly to take our drink orders. By the time our drinks arrived we decided our appetizers. The shrimp... More

I have been wanted to check out Cin Cin and finally got a chance to check out the place. We had a pricking duck and yeh yang shrimp along with steam dumplings. The duck was very well done and the shrimp dish was good but nothing special. The steamed dumplings were fantastic. Dining tables were set up so close to... More
