This quiet and nicely appointed restaurant is a good place to have a leisure lunch - especially if business is to be discussed. Ample room between tables, decent quality Szechuan Cuisine, friendly un intrusive service.

Visiting family in Carlsbad and we went to Chin's. The soup was excellent, the egg rolls good. The special fried rice was very good as were the other dishes. I would recommend and certainly go back. Ask for Mandy she was our wonderful server!

I love this place. The food is top notch, and the service can't be beat. We had cashew shrimp and hot Szechuan eggplant. In fact, I ALWAYS order the eggplant with ground pork. Delicious, healthy, well prepared, and they are FAST. Sometimes I stop there...More
