Consider the location, prices of the food are reasonable. We went there at around 11:30 am before the lunch crowd started streaming in. We ordered chicken rice, pork chop and mixed vegetables. We were not so in awe of the food, nothing particularly outstanding nor substandard. We asked for 2 chicken rice, both with the steamed chicken thigh but the waitress suggested that we should take 1 steamed thigh and 1 roasted thigh. When we turned down her suggestion, she was very persistent and almost wrote down the order despite our rejection. We had to tell her very firmly that if we couldn't have the steamed chicken thigh, we would rather not have the chicken rice at all, then did she relent. Next, there were 3 of us and we ordered 2 drinks. She kept asking the 3rd person to order a drink, again, we had to tell her that the 3rd person didn't need a drink. Finally, when we finished eating, we asked to take away the unfinished food. The same waitress was very helpful to get the food packed for us. However, while waiting for the packed food, another waitress asked us to leave quickly by the side door because many people were waiting to come in. We are mindful that the restaurant is not a fine dining place where exceptional service is expected. Both waitresses were of middle age, they were doing their job, maybe they could learn to deliver the same message in a more skilful manner?

Very modest place but one that serves excellent food for reasonable price. The staff is friendly and service is quick. It can get quite crowded and loud though. So not for the ones that are looking for good ambiance. Another downside is that they accept only cash.

Haven't been to Chin Chin in over 15 years. I'm glad the standard is still maintained. We had a table despite going during the midst of the lunch hour. Inside, it had that old nostalgic feel and looks. Pricing was very reasonable. The only problem is the limited street side parking. We had to park in a nearby office building carpark.

No! Contrary to the news report, the lady boss said they are not about to close down due to covid. Their kids have all resettled in different parts of Australia. The couples have decided to return to Singapore since they are more comfortable here. Running the restaurant is a great money generating pastime for them. There are a wonder team of people who have been with them for years. They would be able to come around with their low pricing strategy. Hang on folks!

Chicken rice was good, tried the veggie but totally not my thing. Ordered a plate of pork chop as well. Way too old school with the tomato sauce and peas, probably what my parents would have enjoyed in their earlier days.
