Chin Chin does it right. Their food is fresh & tasty and presented nicely to boot. It was very cool to go to a Chinese restaurant and be able to see straight into the kitchen through a big tinted picture window. This feature was both intriguing & reassuring & we really enjoyed knowing that they didn't mind us seeing how our food was prepared. The wonton soup & crab rangoon are just perfect. The golden crispy prawns in orange grand marnier sauce are huge and delicious. The mongolian beef is a flavor explosion that is definitely worth your while. The service was fine, but nothing notable. It seems Chin Chin has a nicely consistent dinner crowd along with a very steady carry out business. We took some friends to Chin Chin our second go around and they were equally satisfied. Chin Chin frequently appears on Groupon and we always make sure to head in their direction when we get a craving for classic Chinese comfort food.

I took my parents out to Chin Chin in Brookhaven for there 30th aniversary last week and this placed just sucked. The food was not cooked right, the restaurant had a really bad odor and the server could hardly speak english. When the bill came for 3 people it was over $95 and no one had any alcohol. That is just to much for chinese food. The food was so bad no one wanted to take the leftovers home.

I don't get it...the Buzz on this restaurant is so good, and then when I eat there it's just mediocre. I eat there a lot, because I live near it and it's convenient, and it's okay. But it's just "okay", not outstanding or wonderful. There are many better chinese restaurants in Atlanta, but this one is okay.

I have been a frequenter of this Chin Chin location for over a year now and love them. If you've been more than once you'll notice the same wait-staff; although the have multiple locations, this has the feel of a family restaurant. The food is very good- I've had most of the dishes on the menu at this point and most are excellent. And like other Chin Chin restaurants the kitchen is exposed via a large glass window allowing you to watch your food being cooked. My kids liked this for a while.

Visit this restaurant only if you want to be insulted. We went there to have dessert only and after serving us water and giving us the menu, when we announced we were there only for dessert, they declined service! It was so disgraceful, we had to leave. I have never seen such a demeaning place. The waiters were very harsh and in their broken English kep repeating "table cloth costs us money". Even the mamager ,when called was rude to us. We have lodged a complaint with the Atlanta restaurants association about denying service unlawfully. This place should be banned. The food is not Chinese but that's not the main reason why you should avoid this place. Inside you will see illegal Mexicans serving you and half the time won't understand your order. Avoid at all costs. There is a general word of caution about this place in the Buckhead area.

GREAT food, beautifully presented, A-1 service, and very nice atmosphere. The meal is presented on gorgeous plates and the ice cream is very good. Highly recommended! Oh, and be sure to order the tangerine chicken.
