It cause me food allergies after I ate the 6 pieces of the prawn from the seafood fried rice I ordered. From my experience, I won't have seafood allergies if it freshly served.

We stayed nearby for a few days and had some of our meals at Tip Top. Friendly service with a smile but definitely not 'fast food'. I only tried the local dishes and they were delicious, home-cooked style. The mango cheesecake was fantastic and so are their mixed fresh fruit juices. The place looks simple but is kept very clean.

They have all the beach toys you'll need to have a fun day on the beach. Beer, wine, fresh juices, and food is a little over priced but worth it. We have 3meals a day here. Awesome staff and great location.

If you need food at the Tip of Borneo, this little restaurant is a great place to meet people and have some good food. Not fancy or expensive but right on the beach and with great staff. Recomended.

This was my favorite restaurant to hang out during my stay near TOB for diving conservation with TRACC. A couple of times during my trip we all came to this restaurant for great western style food or for few beers.

Great local food, variety of fruit shakes and beers. In case of emergency Howard will offer you "some good Russian stuff" into your drink ;) Try HINAVA - local food from raw fish, onions, chilli, lemon... The place is very busy!

There were only really 2 restaurants to choose from where were staying in Borneo and we nearly always ended up at Tip Top for the main reason that Howard and his team managed to create a laid back ambiance for young travellers to chill, relax and enjoy - not just the food and beers (or shandy in my case!) but...

Everything I ate there was wonderful, but the cheesecake is a must. Large servings of cheesy gram crackery goodness, though it isn't think like New York style it is nothing short of amazing. Their homemade chilli sauce is also wonderful. With the hospitality of the staff the only reason to not eat here is if you aren't in Borneo.

We stayed at Tommy's place, but we ate at Tip Top restaurant, a 15/20 minute walk. They have a variety of meals, also veggie meals. The food is okay.

I have eaten at Tip Top a few times now & have always enjoyed it. The setting is great, the food is good & the prices are reasonable. What really raises the bar here is the service. Having spent a year in Sabah I have come to realise that customer service is not a priority in many eateries. So, to... More
