White Meat Prices for Dark Meat Chicken – I realize that Chin Chin IS a chain and I don't usually hold chains to very high standards, but I would expect that with the prices charged by Chin Chin, the quality, presentation and flavor of the food would well exceed that of a Panda Express, or other fast food Chinese place that serves their food from vats sitting under heatlamps. I was quite mistaken.
The prices are about 2/3 over the local mom and pop Chinese shops around town, they charge a delivery fee (unlike most mom and pops's) and the quality of their meat is dismal. I ordered the Steamed Pork Dumplings and Chicken Lo Mein.
The shells of the dumplings were thick and gummy, however, there was a large portion of meat on the inside. Overall, these were OK.
The biggest disappointment was the Chicken Lo Mein. For $10.95, I would expect the chicken to be white and lean, it was dark, somewhat chewy and fatty. The noodles were also overcooked and the overall flavor of the dish was too sweet.
If someone asked me where they should go to get decent Chinese in LA at decent prices, I would preface my recommendation by telling them NOT Chin Chin.
Fair food but abysmal hygiene.. – For a few years I are once in a while at Chin Chin, the Brentwood one, the Sunset Plaza, Studio City...
Well, never ever again.
I would allow myself to see heinous food handling practives and kind of overlook it. You can see plenty for yourself... check it out as their kitchens are usually in full view.
Push came to shove when I found a huge ball of steel wool in my Anthony's Noodles. That can be deadly. And the kicker? They handled it terribly. I called, nobody ever called me back. I have photos I sent them, no response.
It was easy to overlook strange crossover items like shrimp in my beef and noodles in my rice but steel wool? Gross. They seem to employ according to a strategy of save the most money possible.
Avoid Chin Chin, results can be deadly.
yuk – and for burgers can i reccommend mcdonalds? and for mexican, taco bell is simply outstanding. you get the idea...
Nah...I'll pass – I got Chin Chin delivered and it arrived hot. The veggie dumplings were okay; I'm not gonna rave about them like Rosie O'Donnell used to. The smell of the Lo Mein made me a bit nauseous. The string beans were the best of all the dishes though a bit oily. Not gonna bother again.
Devour Chin Chin's famed Chinese Chicken salad in the company of supermodels and shoppers. – In Short
Perched in hip enclaves all over town, the white umbrellas of its patios make a welcome watering hole for locals. The "Dim Sum & Then Sum" combination is what put them on the map. Select three half-orders from a repertoire of dim sum staples, salads and entrees for less than the price of a martini at Skybar. The tangy Chinese chicken salad is its signature, but the jade salad, with pickled ginger shrimp, mandarin oranges and baby spinach, is a unique choice.
This is not your traditional Chinese restaurant. They have created American style (much healthier) Chinese dishes that are simply amazing. If you like Chinese food but are health conscious, try this place.
Chin Chin has a great casual atmosphere and better than average chinese food that is not as greasy as the norm for take out chinese. Try the 'dim sum and then some' for a good variety of tastes - you can choose three items from dim sum to salads to mooshu. check it out.
