Cuisine: A La Carte, Asian, Casual Dining
Price Point: Mains from $25 - $35

For top tasting dishes in a top class setting, Top Taste should be at the top of your list.

Sit back and enjoy the chilled bistro vibes. Glass windows is all that comes between the eatery and outside world, allowing in as much natural light as possible. The modern décor made up of comfortable chairs and Asian sculptures makes this a great place for a laid-back supper.

Sample a couple of their moreish entrees, like Duck Triangles or a selection of Dumplings. For the mains, there’s something for everyone. Hoisen Lamb, Orange Steak and DIY Pork Belly Wraps are only the tip of the iceberg. Try from a range of flavoursome curries and comforting rice and noodle dishes. If it’s seafood you’re after, why not try their Fried Blue Cod or super popular Salt and Peppered Squid.

Wash it all down with a boozy thirst-quencher; they stock award winning boutique wines! And recently added to the menu Plimmerton Kombucha.

All the household favourites are there to get your evening off to a great start.

We Arrived Early by 15 minutes, Seated in a nice spot for 2. To begin we ordered Steamed Pork Mince Buns and chicken and sweet corn soup. steamed Pork Buns were delicious, the soup my partner had. He ate it all so it must have been good. Next the mains which we shared. Nasi Goreng, Sweet and Sour Pork, and Hoisen Lamb. Nasi Goreng was just full of flavour with the right amount of spice for me, The Sweet and Sour Pork was nice with a touch of class (the carrots were cut into little shapes), and the Hoisen Lamb was as always delicious. Finally it came to dessert, Now if your a Crème Brulee fan as I am then prepare for a delight, It came in bigger size dishes than what you normally get and hit the spot leaving both of us completely full and with a hit of sweetness to end the meal.
Thankyou to all the staff at Top Taste, you do Porirua a service being the best Chinese restaurant in the area.
Highly Recommended Especially if your a regular user of First Table.

Wow first time diners and the food was so tasty and so fresh. The Dumplings were delicious, we devoured them and ordered more to come along with the main...I definately recommend them. The service was great and the intimate and relaxed ambience of the restaurant itself was perfect for a date night out. We will definately be back.

When we first walked in the waitress completely ignored us. She finally acknowledged us and sat us in the restaurant. The restaurant is beautiful, really nicely decorated! The food we had was also delicious and came out in a timely manner. We enjoyed all of the food and drinks. The waitress was very disinterested and looked bored. The male server who cleared our plates and took our payment was lovely! He made up for her service. All in all, a good night.

The food was Tasty as the restaurant titles suggests. Everything was to expectation and more. I took a friend who didn't know about First table and now she is going to use it. I showed her how easy it was to use. The waiter was very helpful and made it an easy and enjoyable evening. Had intened to go somewhere else and saw this on the first table list Yay.

We had lovely meals with delicious flavours, well priced items and generous servings. Tasty salt and pepper squid, plum duck, sizzling steak and asian greens were all devoured! We especially loved that our son tried a couple of dishes and commented on how yummy the broccoli was and polished off the dish! The lemon and ice jugged water makes a nice change from just plain. We would dine there again and recommend the food!

Top Taste decor was modern, tidy and clean. The male wait staff was very welcoming, considerate and knowledgable, topping up our water often, clearing the dishes, included our son in conversations and prompt with service. However the female wait staff was not as confident or welcoming, did not know the menu or the 'spice level' of a couple of dishes, nor did she offer to go and find out. She was polite enough, just didn't seem to provide a basic level of customer care and attention for a dining experience.

The entre and mains were delicious, plentiful, clean and light (it didn't have that 'heavy' feeling you might sometimes experience with Asian food). Our son loved his desert, however the creme brulee was set beyond how it should normally be served and enjoyed.

Overall though we would absolutely dine here again based on the more enjoyable factors and delicious food.

We went to Top Taste last night (2 adults and 2 children) for a birthday dinner and it was wonderful! We shared dumplings, prawn bites, garlic bread and pork buns for starters. They were all delicious, even the garlic bread was better than normal. But the prawn bites took out first place on our list of favourites.
For mains we had the ginger duck (which I highly recommend) and the Korean stone pot, while the children had the DIY pork belly wraps and fillet steak hot plate. Everyone was very full and happy with their choices. It's great that Top Taste overs the mains in small and large sizes.
Very reasonably priced and lovely, friendly service. The food is super great and we can't wait to return again soon. Thank you.
