Chin Chin Sydney: Everything you need to know

One of Sydney's biggest restaurant openings of the year is almost here!

Melbourne restaurant Chin Chin is bringing its famed food offering north, much to the delight of Sydneysiders.

The food at Chin Chin Sydney will keep the same style and DNA as Melbourne, but the new venue will move away from its Thai roots.

Head Chef Graeme Hunt has created new dishes that will be unique to Sydney, incorporating elements of the restaurant’s design, such as the fire pit and gas rotisserie.

The new space was designed by George Livissianis, taking advantage of the incredible heritage of the Griffiths Teas building and its stunning original windows.
