Having eaten at top one on many occasions over the years I have to say under the new management it really has improved,from the decor and furniture to the food.For the Gold Coast it really is one of the better Cantonese restaurants at a reasonable price and the portions are big. Service from a young team is top notch especially... More

Having only recently moved into the area, I waited until I had been to Top One a few times before reviewing. Its forte seems to be yum-cha at lunchtimes, and is popular with tourists and locals - with many Chinese patrons as well as westerners, which is always a sign of Chinese cuisine being the real deal. As with all... More

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 selections and anything that was ordered took nearly one hour to be delivered. This day... 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.

Great taste for yumcha even though quite pricey. Staff sometimes are quite busy therefore need to put a bit of effort to ask something.

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, it appears as if the dumplings could be puchased frozen and steamed onsite. Will not... 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) "UPSTAIRS UPSTAIRS" and up and down you went until a table was found. Fantastic food,... 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 a lot of choices in the menu and our favourites are the Peking Duck, Taufu... More
