Have been a regular customer here but the last two visits has been a disaster. On public holidays the restaurant is very busy and the kitchen obviously was not able to handle the orders. The trolleys were going around with less than half the normal...More

Well worth a visit for Yum Cha, this is one of the Gold Coast premier Yum Cha restaurants. Everything is fresh, try the roast pork and roast duck, heck try everything it's excellent but take some friends with you to enjoy the experience.

Visited this restaurant for Yum Cha and was really disappointed. For example, the Shanghai dumpling was dry and the skin was too thick. Nowhere near what a Shanghai dumpling should be. Not a lot of variety on the carts. Based on the taste and texture,...More

I know traditionally Chinese service can be pretty mercurial ( anyone that's been to the one in London back in the 90's can attest to this, that had 4 or 5 levels and your told on the ground floor "How many?" (insert # of diners)...More

Top One Restaurant has been in Australia Fair for a long time and the look and feel of the place shows it. The place is dated and in need of a good renovation. However, the food remains excellent every time we go there. There are...More

Hi, Just thought you might wish to be aware of this restaurant's extremely poor record when it comes to cleanliness. I am not allowed to include links, but just google: "Gold Coast Chinese Restaurant Serves up Menu of Monstrosities" story in The Courier-Mail on April 11, 2015

Are you aware Top One has just been fined $20,000+ for filthy food - it's 4th notice in 5 years. This is a very dirty restaurant - see reviews. Tell your friends not to risk their health here.
