Review of Chin Chin
Sydney-siders have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of iconic Melbourne restaurant Chin Chin for some time. Well, thankfully the wait is finally over.
Chin Chin has found its Sydney home in the heritage listed Griffiths Tea Building, which has lay dormant for 30 years. The historic building has been restored and offers plenty of natural light to complement their light and breezy colour palette of pale woods and rustic exposed brickwork.
The top level features an open kitchen and plenty of seating, whilst you will find their private dining areas down the stairs. You can be sure it will always be pumping at Chin Chin, so expect the vibe to be loud, relaxed and fun.
But, the food has always been the star attraction at Chin Chin and boy do they deliver.
Chin Chin offers an Asian fusion menu and they do it so well.
It’s hard to go past the Chin Chin pork rollups to start. These juicy little pancakes offer something a little different to the traditional duck version.
For mains, you can choose from salads, stir frys, noodles, curries and rotisserie meats. We think it would be a crime not to order the twice cooked beef short ribs and a side of coconut rice is always a must!
For dessert, they offer a small selection of Asian inspired sweet treats. The palm sugar and burnt caramel ice-cream sundae was our pick.
Good to know, they also offer a selection of private spaces downstairs at Chii Town that can fit groups from 12 – 125.
Sadly, there are no bookings for tables under 6 so you will most likely have to wait for your table. But not to worry, just head next door to their cocktail bar, Go Go Bar for a drink while you wait.
We’re excited to finally have our very own Chin Chin in Sydney!
