Food was great but service was horrible. Cocktails were not good and questionable as to if alcohol was in the drinks. For the type of cuisine it is overpriced. More than likely won’t go back but we did enjoy the Duck Fat Fried Rice and the Chino Platter. Just overpriced.
Some of the best food we've tried. Great menu, great staff!
We were at in a high traffic area even though we made a reservation. Servers continuously tried to get past each other between our table and another table. The same server ran into me 3 times and the table next to us 3 times, which means we were startled 6 times! It's hard to eat when you feel like you're on a football field. The lobster shooters we just okay, the lobster itself had no flavor and was extremely tough. I ordered the Short Rib Drunken Noodles, something they are known for. The plate looked so sloppy. Way too much sauce, the veggies weren't chopped up into bite sized pieces and the short rib was so overcooked it was dry. Overall it was so disappointing. We took our meal home in hopes of enjoying it more in a nice environment but we actually hated the food more the second time. Won't be returning unfortunately. I love any kind of Asian fusion cuisine but this fell very short. Too bad because Trinity Groves is so cute!
We brought a group of 5 people and ordered the Chef Uno Family Dinner. It was more than enough food, we had a lot left over. Everything was incredibly delicious. There was nothing we would have substituted. We could not agree on which item was the best.
In addition to the mind blowing food, we had amazing service! I wish i could remember her name. But she was the blonde waitress for the round booths on Saturday night. She did a great job, very knowledgeable about the food and cocktails.
We tried a few of their cocktails. The mule with the pisco was a big hit as well as the snake charmer. The cocojito (like a mojito but with coconut water) was a little strange. But the regular mojito was really good.
The food came out fast. The music was neither too loud nor too quiet. Very nice atmosphere. I would love to go back for a date night.
One of my favorite restaurants - I come here as often as I can. Food is great, but lately service has been lacking. Last 3 or 4 times I've been, the restaurant is only 30% full, but we have to wait 15+ minutes for a server to come take our drink orders, then wait again for their return to take food orders. On one visit some people in our group were ordering two drinks at a time because it was taking 30+ minutes for the server to return. Still will come back though, food is great and large sized plates.
Food is delish, service is awesome!! We have never had a bad experience! Love this place!
It has been a long time finding a restaurant that it hit on every level. It put it simply this place was amazing. The look, the feel, service and food were outstanding. I wish my hometown of Houston had something even close to this. The duckfat fried rice was incredible, along with the tour of chino.
The food wasn’t fresh. Not worth the money. Very disappointed.
I waited 25 minutes for the waiter to ask for our lunch orders and another 35-40 minutes waiting for the food. FOOD NEVER CAME after being there an hour, we left.
It was a horrible experience because of the mean crappy waiter. I went their for my birthday with my family and server didnt even greet up. The only time we saw our waiter is when he came to take our order for drink and foods. We saw a bus boy more than our server. He never came to the table to ask how the food was, he didnt care enough to know how the food was. We felt very unwelcomed, so when it was time to pay we decide to not tip him good as for us tip is base on service and we were not satisfied. And the crazy part is as soon as i put the check tray down after signing and tipping this server look at the tip and ask us why did we tip so less and we told him because we didnt like the service. And the server had an audacity to tell us that we should go to a fast food joint to eat if we are not going tip more than 18% and when i told him that my tip is base on service he blame it on restaurant being busy and couldnt take care of it. That was very rude behavior, people who do not know how to treat there customer feel valued and at the same time behave rudely shouldnt be in a customer service business. The server name was Albert or something like that. Overall a horrible experience never coming back and never going to recommend anyone. It was a worst birthday dinner. I think you guys need to train people.
Water glasses were dirty on the table when we arrived and the service was slow. We weren’t in a hurry so it was ok. It gave us more time to chat and stare at other people, lol. Food was still great. Always a an interesting variety of food choices. Plus, the valet was on point that evening.
It was ok. Really busy around the time I went. That played a huge factor on service. I don’t recommend their wontons.
Love coming to Chino Chinatown. Delicious food and friendly stafff. I’ve been here a few times and every time has been a great experience, would definitely recommend.
They marked me and a friend as a no show even though we were the only two people in the restaurant.
Our Favorite place to Dine
First visit. We were pleased. Excellent service...Food was really wonderful.
Great for a group hanging out. High noise level. The food was mediocre and over priced. Was curious about the Asian/Mex blend.
This is one of our favorite restaurants. A great place to bring new friends who just moved to Dallas. The food is always great and the staff is very friendly.
The service was good but the food was not. The chicken tasted like it had been cooked hours earlier, the steak was mushy... it was just bad. I was really looking forward to this place but I’ll never go back.
Fantastic place to eat, delicious food. There is a great selection of food delivering in a timely manner.
I don't know what it was about this visit to Chinos but the food seemed off. The glass ware was dirty and even the wine seemed a little funky. It was just weird. Service for this day was top notch.
We went to Chino for Valentine's dinner, and the food was delicious. We always prefer to sit at the bar when dining out, but the bar seats at Chino were very uncomfortable. The bar area appeared to be understaffed for the evening. We were only one of two couples seated at the bar, however the bartender remained quite preoccupied at the service well. This led to rushed interactions and slow service, which dulled the experience for us. I would definitely recommend the food, though.
I absolutely love their food. The Braised short rib bento bowl was awesome. The cocktails are made with care and are really tasty.
The food was good, it nothing special. Wait staff was spread too thin on a busy Saturday night.
I didn't attended , I went there but I found that was not the food I want it but place is great
We love Chino, great food for the value/price and very fun atmosphere! We love to bring all our friends and family together here!
My guest and I only ordered the appetizer sampler so this isn't a full review. The drum stick and the sliced pork were the best. I was underwhelmed with the duck spring rolls but it was all tasty.
It was a quiet night in the restaurant and service was good
Absolutely LOVE this place! The food never disappoints. It's always a good choice.
You’re paying for the location here. Food was good, but a bit overpriced. $80 for 2 people including 1 appetizer and 1 cocktail per person
Food was good as usual. The service on the other hand was worrible.
The recommendations our waiter made were so delicious. The atmosphere was very cozy and unique
Food was good, had a little twist to it. Duck fat fried rice was yummy and the waitress mentioned an off the menu - low mein and it was great too! Drinks are a little pricey but i figured comes with the cool location!! by the way...super cool location!!! Great evening with my friends!
Went there meet a friend for a Sunday brunch. The food was Yummy. I ordered the Tres leches French toast I was to die for. And the mimosas sweet and refreshing.
This place has been an amazing find with great food and drinks . Enjoyable staff and a great twist on cuisine .always a pleasure to find a place where the food has feeling and doesn't present the same ol same ol !
The food was awful. We paid $27 for this appetizer that had a flame in the middle of it. The food was already cooked but it was like it was from the frozen section of Walmart. We then got the orange chicken and I took 2 bites and couldn’t even finish it. It tasted like a frozen chicken breast with hot sauce on it. Peiwei makes a better orange chicken. We waited 30+ minutes for our appetizer and the waitress apologized and said she had taken care of it. Nope, we will paid full price. Overall, not pleased. It was NYE and there were maybe 7 tables occupied. The other restaurants were packed. I guess this explains why. We won’t be back.
Great food and service.
Music was a little too loud for casual conversation. The services was awkward as our waiter pushed menu items at us with an attitude of expectation that we would order starters, sides and desserts.
The manager Chris and our server Angelo were fabulous !!!
