Thanks to Chin Chin's open kitchen, diners can watch as skilled chefs massage menu items into shape behind a large glass window. Witness culinary artists steam a boneless Long Island duckling for the braised-duck plate ($14.95) or stir-fry marinated beef with dried citrus peels for the tangerine-beef dish ($13.95). Herbivore-friendly options include eggplant with garlic sauce ($8.95) and vegetarian General Tso's chicken ($11.50), whose "chicken" actually consists of soybean protein, starch, wheat protein, vegetarian fiber, and other common stocking stuffers.
The eatery's contemporary dining room surrounds patrons with vibrant orange and green walls and golden hanging lights, which add romantic glistens to post-dinner libations such as a glasses of wine ($6–$8), ice-sculpture sweat, and imported beers ($5–$8). Diners can also wrap up their meals by noshing on green tea, mango, or coconut ice cream ($4 each).
Creative Loafing Atlanta declared Chin Chin the city's best Chinese restaurant in 2012; that's a title the eatery has held for the better part of a decade thanks to the skill of the chefs there. Diners catch glimpses of those chefs chopping vegetables, braising tofu, and glazing breasts of duck through a large pane of glass that separates the kitchen from the dining room. Rice soup simmers, and dumplings open blossoms of steam near plates of pork ribs covered in honey like the world’s wealthiest bear.
