The verdict

Melbourne’s favourite mod-Thai restaurant has just had a massive facelift! We’re talking new floors and lighting design, a royal-blue palette replacing the former greens, an extensive mirrored back-bar in the style of an antique Chinese bookcase, high-backed stools clad in blue leather, fresh rock posters, new bathrooms, and a new and improved kitchen. It’s not just their interiors that’ve had an overhaul, the drink lists and food menu have had an upgrade of their own! The cocktail list now uses more South East Asian ingredients – think Thai Iced Tea and Tom Yum Bloody Mary and they’ve ditched about 30 per cent of the existing dishes for some new recipes. They’ve even added in a new barbeque section that features gai yang (Thai-style grilled chicken), Wagyu rump cap and barbeque pumpkin and broccolini. But for those change-fearing foodies out there, don’t fret because they’ve still kept the classics like the massaman, sashimi, soft-shelled crab and the barra salad.

Chin Chin continues to be our go-to CBD fav to catchup with friends, share some wine and sensational food and enjoy the bustling ambience. Head on downstairs to Go Go Bar when you feel like a change of scenery, or if you want to party all night long (they’ve had a killer makeover too!).
