Top One has delicious yum cha, quite busy. Great place to have family gathering, lots of variety and fast service. Nice oriental décor. Has beautiful water view, if you want to dine by the window you need to book or come early around 10.30, most people coming around 11 to 11.30, then you have to wait, sometimes a long wait... More

This is one place that is always busy so make sure you plan & schedule in plenty of time if you are heading there. Alternatively, try to get there early before the crowds hit. Good yumcha with huge variety. Always a satisfying experience.

My sister brought me here with my mother for a birthday lunch. We went quite early as we had been told it can fill up quite fast and in busy periods the wait can be about 20 minutes. The staff were prompt in seating us and very efficient in getting us our first selection and were very friendly considering there... More

Have eaten at this restaurant at different times over many years of visiting the Gold Coast. Had 2 Yum Cha lunches just recently and they were excellent. The restaurant is always very busy which is a very good sign that customers keep on coming back.

I've been here. Any times over the years and unfortunately it's getting worse and worse. The place looks tired and dirty, and the food is luke warm. They used to have the best BBQ pork but it's not grissly and fatty. Not the best anymore maybe needs a. Amen change to. Bottom one

We went there once last year and have never been there again. It was a business weekend brunch time and thus it may not be totally surprising that we were left unattended once led into the table. I had to stop one waitress and specifically ordered some fish congee. Yet it was not served till more than 30 min later... More

Experienced travellers know that to find the best places to eat authentic local cuisine, one doesn't bother with the ads...one goes for a walk and look for the places locals eat. It's fun and you're assured of good, cheap (?) and authentic food. When you arrive at Australia Fair, you'll notice the Asian Tour Buses parked outside and where are... More
