Really disappointed with my visit to Chin Chin. I'd been looking forward to visiting here for dinner for many months but unfortunately it did not live up to expectation. The starters did not taste of anything and were greasy, so bad in fact we returned...More

The food at Chin Chin is superb and the service was top notch. The Crying Tiger is magnificent if you like it hot, but to be avoided if you're not into spicy hot food. We had numerous dishes and all were great. We ordered several...More

Went to Chin Chin on Monday night with a friend. We hit there around 6pm and were lucky enough to get a free table. We ordered a few share plates and were tucking in to some very tasty dishes when the fire alarm went off!...More

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

corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
