Great spot for a party – I recently had my rehearsal dinner for 60 guests at Chin Chin in Brentwood. They have a fantastic indoor/outdoor patio that we were going to use to host our event. Unfortunately, it rained A LOT the evening of our event and the roll-away roof has gaps between panels. The manager of that location and the event coordinator were able to accomodate, and blocked off part of the interior of the restaurant for us. While the layout of the space wasn't ideal at first glance, they were able to move some tables around to make our party feel more intimate. The food and service were great... Next party, we hope to have the patio on a non-rainy evening.
Chin Chin – This place is kind of like pick up sticks, but better and more pricey. Over all, the food is pretty good and affordable
Great Chinese Chicken Salad. Get the best value "dim sum and then sum". I used to go to the original location on Sunset but stopped going since they changed the layout and menu. I hoped this location's Chicken held up to the original taste and reciped and it does. Good food.
Shrimp Toast – Went on a sunday afternoon...delicious shrimp toast and dumplings. I preferred the appetizers more than the entrees. I would drive down from LB just for the toast and dumplings. YUM!
I've never been to the actual restaurant, we just had delivery and it was disgusting. We had the honey glazed spicy shrimp and there was an inch of uncooked batter on the outside of the shrimp. The food quality is terrible! Price does not match the quality of the food. I would rate it lower than chinese fast food. It was GROSS! The Beef/Broccoli was undercooked as well. Thinking about it now makes me naucious.
The best affordable Chinese restaurant. – Chin Chin is combination of authentic Chinese food and ?American Style? service.
I like all the changes that have made in the Brentwood location. The patio is perfect for late night dinners.
Cool lunch spot, neat patio – I really like their dim sum and chinese chicken salad, but what sets this Chin Chin's apart from the Marina Del Rey location is the view. There's a valet that's 90 minutes free with validation. The patio is nice but I felt a bit pressured to be dressed up; odd considering it's a chain restaurant.
Great Chinese Chicken Salad and Szechuan Dumplings! – OK...so this is not authentic Chinese fare...but it'll do in a pinch! The Chinese Chicken salad is very good as are the Szechuan Dumplings. If you like spicy noodles, try the Anthony's Noodles...very tasty! The ribs are good too and if you dine in, make sure you get the iced green tea! General Tso's Chicken is also a usual order. My coworkers like the Almond Chicken and the Steamed Buns filled with BBQ pork. It's a good spot if you really must have Chinese food...otherwise, make the trip east to Monterey Park, Alhambra or San Gabriel for some real Chinese food!
Rude wait staff. Aweful management! – Chin Chin offers tasty Chinese cuisine, HOWEVER awful customer service. The waiters at the restaurant on Sunset in West Hollywood act as though they are doing their customer a favor by waiting on them. I ordered the Pad Thai. The flavor was great, however the meal was mostly comprised of rice noodles. I asked the waiter if it was possible to get some additional chicken. He informed me that I would have to pay extra and refused to do anything else about it. I spoke with the manager about the issue and he was extremely rude as well. You see, I guess he was rather busy attempting to fix a problem with their dishwasher and could care less about taking care of his clientele. I kindly informed him that I would not be returning to Chin Chin.
Expensive for what you get
If you're French, love carbs, and hate protein, then this is the place for you!
Good for a quick, rather greasy, meal – I love Chinese food, but hate spending an arm and a leg for a spring roll. Chin Chin has great prices (especially the Dim Sum and Then Sum menu). The food is decent for inexpensive chinese, but I have to admit the vegetables are better than their meat entrees. Service was fast and friendly (although our waiter didn't seem to speak much English). A good place for a quick Chinese meal, with friends or family members, but don't expect anything fantastic.
