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.
