Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Took two friends to lunch. Lovely 3 course meal special running. Have been before with hubby and had the chicken snitzel. Highly recommend you take a group of friends. If you go for lunch make sure you arrive at noon as they close at 2 pm.

Wow what a year! Our bunch of 13 old friends dine out once a month and this was our 4th Christmas Dinner at Chin Wags. The 3 course meal was fantastic as it always is. Thank you for setting us up and for the Christmas Decorations and Crackers, oh and for the extra bowl of Desert to share. We were already stuffed but appreciated it. Great atmosphere, friendly staff and great food. We also took time to thank ourselves for a great bunch of friends, more like a family, we remembered those close to us who we had lost this year, too many and thankfully none due to Covid. Here’s hoping we are all around to do it again in 2021. Thanks Chin Wags for a great night.

Despite being a country restaurant Chin Wags offers the highest dining experience. Not silver service, but a great menu choice with food cooked to perfection. It is an asset to a fast growing community with a take out menu as well as catering for special occasions. Service was fast and friendly despite the restaurant being busy. The 3 course set price menu was great value.

We went with a family group for a birthday celebration. They were very prompt with taking orders & our meals came out quickly. The food was tasty & servings were good. The pork belly was delicious. They are happy to cater for food allergies. Boxes were given for the students leftovers. A great night out.

This was our third Christmas Dinner held here for our special group of friends. The 3 course meal was to die for. $55.00 very reasonable for what you got. Four options for each course so plenty to choose from. Good size servings too and very well presented. They catered for our group in the secluded area out the back so we could make some noise. Very helpful and friendly staff. Great atmosphere. Can’t wait for next years Christmas which will be held here once again.

Chinwags is a good little spot that needs a bit of help. Food was ok but the establishment lacks any ambience / character. Reminded me of the old cafes from the 70s. Could do with a remodel.
