1st the location is nice and easy to find. The roof area for diner offer you quite a good view. Inside cosy interior with perfect service ... very quiet and not crowded during the week ... perfect for special occasion. Food is mainly vegetarian and too simple for a place name like this. Dishes and wines are expensive but tasty.... More

The setting was beautiful, calm. Service is correct (albeit a litlle slow, especially considering that there were almost nobody else). But the food was particularly basic and ordinary (tried the 4 fromaggi and the pumpkin lasagna). I have had to ask for black pepper in order to have some taste Inside. Also we had the surprise to discover a fully... More

This place is a real find in Shenzhen, with an Italian Chef. The Pizzas were thin and crispy and we ordered pasta which wasn't on the menu and that was exceptional. The wine was mainly Italian but all good quality. All in all a very pleasant evening

Recommended to colleagues The Top, we booked a table. Was not necessary as no one there....and only staffed by two ladies. Both Chinese. In past there was "western management" Once seated, it took a while to get service. Remember there was no one there to eat, We end d up leaving, was not organized, thus this place is no longer...

Excelent food(very tasty and good amount of food), good service, the environment is nicely decorated, fair price. I will came back many times, for sure. The only bad thing is that is hard to find it, no signs in front of it. We had a very good night there

The Top used to be our favorite Italian restaurant in Shenzhen. The food was great and the prices reasonable for the quality you were getting. But a couple years back, it all changed, and not for the good. The chef that was working there was great. The dishes he prepared were so flavorful and delicious we found ourselves going to... More

We have been here once before two years ago and had a fabulous meal with our daughter, who works and lives in Shekou. We have returned to spend some more time with her and decided to come to The Top again for dinner. This time we were able to sit outside on the terrace as the weather was perfect. Had... More

Based on all the good comments and rating on TripAdvisor, my wife and I went to the Top for our Christmas dinner. I should have realized from the moment I tried to book a table that it wouldn't be a good experience as no one picks up the phone in the afternoon. Although the restaurant decoration shows some taste, the... More

Perched on the top (5th) floor of a commercial building over the 'small' Starbucks in Shekou, you need to access the building and take the lift. Once inside the rough start changes and you will find a very tastefully decorated peaceful oasis. The food has always been good with excellent Pizza and rated among the best I've had in China...

The Restaurant is located in Shekou, about 200 m from Sea World. Its elegant but relaxed atmosphere gives you a taste of the Italian Style, which you will find in our food and our wines.The Restaurant is suitable for quick lunch at noon, but gives its best on Business or Romantic dinner, which can be also served in the 5th floor roof terrace.We speak Chinese, English and Italian
