About Chin Chin

A quintessentially Australian take on Asian food, the trademark Chin Chin taste is a carefully blended mix of freshness, spice, heat, exotic herbs and an obsessive need to perfectly balance all of these elements.

Chin Chin lives by the philosophy that eating and drinking should be fun and relaxing much like our way of life. We’re all about stimulating a sensory overload that our guests just can’t help but come back for. This has seen us become regarded as one of the most popular restaurants in Australia.

Chin Chin Sydney is housed in the beautiful, historic and heritage-listed Griffiths Tea building on the corner of Wentworth Avenue and commonwealth street in Surry Hills. After laying dormant for the past 30 years, it is a space we are excited to breathe life back into.
