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. My girlfriend and I went to Chin Chin's last night and every time we go I always feel like part of the family when I am greeted there, and more so when the food arrives. The place was packed with a healthy buzz of activity. It appeared that the restaurant was a mix of regulars and newcomers like us. We started with spring rolls -- crunchy and hot, followed by schezuan shrimp and chicken lo mein -- both were delicious! Service here is always great and ambiance is beautiful!!
We happened to notice that chi dynasty was no more while driving on ventura blvd today. Saw the sign for shanghai rose and decided to give it a try tonight. Excellent food. Wonderful flavors! Had the bar-b-que pork bun, great crispy shrimp roll, sliced bar-bque pork that was the most tender ever and incredibly delicious. Seafood chow fun. What a find! They don't yet have their bar license, so that knocked it down one star, but they will have it soon. Very friendly welcoming staff. Excellent service.
Vegetables are crisp, just cooked enough for easy digestion, still tasty and bright. Spices are perfect, additional sauces and such to accompany your dish. Good portions, not stingy. Great feeling afterwards. It's nice for take-out, but its local restaurant is very quiet and gentle for a relaxing meal after work or before a show.
