after an enjoyable dinner we were given the bill which i payed with cash. our waiter came and took the bill. as we were getting ready to leave, the owner(Jimmy Chin) came up to us and said that we didn't pay. after arguing this led to me calling the police. in the end we were told we had to pay a second time. the police told us to pay w/a credit card and file a merchant dispute. i suggest that you avoid going to this restaurant,or if you must go, do not pay w/cash.

I went here on a recommendation by a close friend. To cut to the chase, this restaurant is top notch. If you like shrimp you will die for the Grand Marnier Shrimp. Have it as an appetizer and the move on to the sweet and sour pork. If you like something a little on the spicy side try the Mongolian beef. It is top notch. This is a must visit Chinese restaurant. I am going back again with some business associates for lunch this week. This is just 3 days after my dinner there. Oh yes, it is that good!

Pros: Great service, great food, great atmosphere.

Cons: This isn't cheap chinese nor would you want it to be.

I've been going to this place for years and it has never disappointed me. The place is beautiful with a chic atmosphere. The service is always excellent and the food is absolutely delicious. It might seem pricey, but the portions are quite large and the quality of the food is great. I definitely recommend giving Chin Chin a try!

Food is mediocre at best, and not sure what the hype is about the dining room. Far from elegant food or dining room. So many better places with authentic chinese without French and Italian music playing.

Went there on a Saturday in Feb 08 and the service was very good. Everyone was extremely nice, and the food did not take long to arrive at our table. I had a good time, and was able to carry a conversation without them trying to rush you out of the restaurant. The taste and quality of the food were good as well. The food doesnt have excesses amounts of oil. If you want good chinese food where the quality and service of the food are great then go to Chin Chin.

We made last minute reservations for a table of 9 during Restaurant Week. Staff was accomodating allowing us to be seated before the entire party arrived. The options on the pre fixe menu were broad, but I must say the food was up to par with what you would find at any standard Chinese restaurant, and probably for less $ (even w the pre fixe). We ordered 4 bottles of wine throughout the night. The staff was less than enthusiastic about serving us, and definitely took their time with attending to our table. At one point the waiter spilled a glass of water across the table, and proceeded to soak it up without the mention of an apology. Crossing this off of my list of places to return to.

Went for dinner Christmas evening. The place was jammed but service was excellent. Food was even better.
The best meal we had this time around (except Grimaldi's which was transcendent, but that doesn't dount cause it's pizza not upscale dining)

seriously. best in the city. i go here all the time and the service is always super fast and polite too. every dish is super tasty and they have an interesting menu for a chinese place. my faves are the shrimp dumplings, shark's fin soup, and peking duck or duck a l'orange. i really don't understand why the reviews below mine are so bad, everybody i know loves this place.

plus i've seen derek jeter, mariah carey, and david/victoria beckham (to name a few) having low-key dinners here. if it's good enough for them, it's good enough for me!

Would never eat here again. The food and the service are no better than the cheap joints in Chinatown. This is supposed to be a high class restaurant ? Who are they kidding?

It started out pleasantly enough - we walked in on a Sat night without reservations and were seated with no problem. The place had a nice, upscale feel and pretty flowers on the table. Then, our server came... He was clearly put out that we asked for a description of some of the dishes on the menu. Then we couldn't get him to bring us anything to drink (not even water) until after we'd gotten our appetizers. He was surly throughout the evening, never once coming to our table without being flagged down (which he assiduously avoided btw), and it completely detracted from the food, which wasn't half-bad (actually the crisped orange beef was pretty good). What made it even more bizarre was that he was very attentive to to the loud, drunken folks (I hope, since one of them would spontaneously burst into song at random intervals throughout the evening) at the next table. I spent $100 for dinner that night, no alcohol (perhaps that would have made the experience more tolerable?), for Chinese food that was moderately better than what you'd have delivered to your apt for $10 - shouldn't that price tag include decent service, at the least?

This place is very very highly acclaimed. Famous people eat here and some friends rave of it. We walked in with no reservations on a Weds and got seated.....the food was brought out within 5 mins of ordering and was tastey....the top half. The bottom half of the dish was all oil. It was a little disappointing for the amount we were paying.

Service was decent, but it seems as if they have a problem with air flow in the place as there are fans all over the place moving it around.....I was there in Feb. There is a nice sky light dining room in the back.

Chin Chin is a go-to business restaurant that consistently provides high level of service and food quality. The authentic Chinese cuisine on white-napped tablecloths and sophisticated Western-style service and ambiance is a great combination, and not usually seen outside the better restaruants of Kowloon or Hong Kong. Chin Chin never fails to impress.

My wife and I dined at Chin Chin over the weekend with a large party of 10. I could not have been more satisfied with the dining experience. The service was attentive, the ambience was elegant and the food was extraordinary! This place is going to become a regular for me. I would definitely recommend this exceptional chinese restaurant!

I went to Chin Chin for the first time with my two co-workers last night. Honestly, it was overpriced chinese food. We ordered three dishes and shared them, the meal came out to around $90. I am Chinese American, I grew up in Chinatown, and I grew up eating Chinese food. You can get the same great tasting food and better, the same dishes and more in Chinatown for half the price that Chin Chin offers. Though you will not get the ambiance and not the same service, you will enjoy eating great tasting food for cheap in Chinatown. If I brought my mother to Chin Chin, she'd yell at me for wasting money on such foods. I mean to find authentic Chinese food, where else would you go besides Chinatown? There are great tasting restaurants for dim sum, for lunch, brunch, and dinner for not even half the price spent at Chin Chin. I eat out a lot from low-key to fancy restaurants and this might seem like a very harsh review, but it's the truth. I would go back to Chin Chin, for the ambiance, but as for the food, I've had better. The waiters were speaking Cantonese, Chinese. I heard their entire conversation. Disappointing, disappointing...

Although I can agree with the rushed service complaints, I'd have to disagree with just about everything else a lot of these posters have noted. For one, I think Chin Chin's food is DELICIOUS! Their shrimp dumplings, which I usually request fried, are breathtaking (for lack of an even better word). Their ribs are perfect. And, my fav - their szechuan shrimp are right on point. Not to mention, the owner Mr. Chin is very pleasant and welcomes everyone as if he's been waiting on you all day. And, the wait staff are great too.

A large party of friends had dinner there this week. We were seated in a private room which was nice. Upon arrival we had drinks at the bar, the bartender was nice but service was slow, he seemed obviously overwhelmed. We were served pri- fix appetizers, there were 24 of us and they charged us $400 for this, ridiculous considering what we got and the standard to which it was prepared, then I had my entree of"crispy sea bass".. I use the term crispy very loosly, as it was swimming in sauce. My rice was served 5 minutes after the fish, only after I had to ask for it. I did not enjoy my dining experience, neither did my friends, the service was terrible (I also am a server), the food was very average and extremely overpriced.

Most have annoited Shun Lee Palace as the supreme Chinese cuisine spot. So, if you want the next best then try Chin Chin - my personal favorite.

Jimmy Chin is a master host and manager. Your wait will be short and pleasant due to the friendly confines of the bar and staff. Your food will be expertly prepared and recommendations are eagerly given.

Kudos to Jimmy and the gang. We love Chin Chin

First of all, the restaurant is lovely. It was half full and we were seated immediately - in the back area, which was attractive but happened to be where all the idle waiters hung out which felt awkward.

We had the prix fixe Peking duck. Hot & Sour Soup was good (not amazing). Duckskin pancakes were crisp and good, but VERY rich (it is duck skin, after all). The fried rice with sweet Chinese sausage and scallops was EXCELLENT as was the sauteed spinach. The stir fried duck was... okay. It was very saucy and didn't seem very duck-like. The sorbet was freezer-burned.

The service was polished-seeming but WAY too quick waiters swooping in and removing plates before we were finished. (??)

The whole meal was finished in less than an hour - for that amount of money I want to linger for a while, you know?

Had after theatre dinner one nite last week. We were warmly greeted by owner and staff. Dishes were made to order and served hot at the table. We requested sharing and the waiters separated each dish into several plates expertly. Though not on the menu, do try the Grand Marinier Shrimp, a luscious and unique taste. The spare ribs are the best & the 10 ingredient fried rice was superb & was mixed into everything. Great dining experience.

While visiting in NY over the Thanksgiving Holiday, the concierge at the Waldorf recommended Chin Chin. I was traveling with my teenage daughters and my niece. The restaurant was very accomodating for my niece who is not fond of asian cuisine and served her very plain fried rice!! My daughters and I loved the food and the atmosphere. We'll put it on our list for next year's visit.

Finally, a restaurant for *pallid* palates in search of stir-fry in a "civilized" atmosphere (e.g., no Chinese clientele or greasy chopsticks in sight). Sorry, but pressed linens, coattailed staff, and fancy names for disgusting chicken drenched in soy do not sophisticated cuisine make.

I, for one, will never again grumble about platters of Mystery-Meat Chowmein in zero-atmosphere Chinatown. At least I know I'm not just kidding myself about dining on Chinese.
