Chin Chin

Chin Chin Sydney, housed in the Griffiths Tea Building, echoes its Melbourne predecessor. A hot-pink neon bunny marks the entrance, leading left to GoGo bar offering inventive cocktails by Michael Chiem. The menu boasts bold flavors, like coriander and lardo or green curry paste and lime, expertly balanced. Marble tabletops fill the grand space on the right, creating a lively atmosphere. With a vast selection of wines on tap and bottles, it's easy to indulge. Expect to over-order from the 60-dish menu, starting with kingfish sashimi and progressing to sticky-sweet pad seuw with Wagyu beef. Beware the heat of dishes like Scud Cityjungle curry with grilled pork.
