I have to say Chin's is the best place in Charleston and the surrounding area for chinese food. Everything is always fresh when we eat there. No buffet tables thank goodness. It's sit down full service. If you're use to the buffet stuff, then this not for you...but once you have their food, you wont go back for buffet steam table food. The egg rolls at Chin's are out of this world. They tell me it's a family recipe. It's like no other egg roll I've had...ever...and I travel all over the nation. The service is alwsys good & friendly. The owner is on site and greets you when you enter. It's the nice family neighborhood place to go. I love their Woo Dip Har which is shrimp wrapped in bacon over onions. It's S-12 on the menu. They also have really good fried rice - it's always fresh and full of the meat/seafood you order. Unlike some place, they don't add onions, which is a plus...simple, rice, sprouts, the meat, some green onions...and lots of flavor My friend always gets the Kung Pao Chicken which s hot and spicy just like he likes it. The Nest Chicken is really good too. It's mixed veggies and chicken served in this bird's nest basket made from potatoes...and it's edible. They also have some really good authentic chinese dishes. I especially like the Szechuan Spare ribs I had there. The hot & spicy shrimp is something you must try on a visit. Can you tell I eat there a lot, maybe once a week. Out of town friends from big cities always enjoy it when I take them to chin's. Nothing else like it in town! The lettuce wraps are amazing too! Rivals PF CHang's for sure.
Chin's has to be the best chinese food I have eaten anywhere. Beware...if you are expecting the typical buffet style spot, this is NOT it. Everything is made inhouse, and made to order. Very personal service. A nice place for a business meeting, a first date, or even a family dinner. A must try is most definately the egg rolls!!!! YOU WILL NEVER HAVE ANOTHER ONE LIKE IT NOR WILL YOU WANT TO!!!!..... I am addicted to them, and the fried rice, the crab rangoon, and the foil chicken,and...... Check it out. You won't regret it.
My husband recently took me to Chin's and really there is no need to look further! Looking over the menu, I saw 'Tahitian chicken', the waitress brought me a sample of the sauce I decided to order since it was good, well the dish was spectacular! I loved it and want more! Additionally I loved my eggroll omg -I really want to go there NOW!!
