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

my friends and I went to Simpang Mengayau and stay for a night for the sunset music fest. We had our lunch while waiting for our friend to arrive. So we ordered a plate of seafood fried rice (RM9) and grilled chicken sandwich (RM16). The fried rice was awesome we liked it very much asked for extra rice without any... More

The restaurant is by the seaside, I love how the wind blows as you enjoy your meal. The food is delicious and reasonably pricey. The best mee goreng I've ever tasted!!

Howard and Lorina have created something special here. The atmosphere is always great at Tip Top be it for breakfast, lunch, dinner or inbetween. The hinava and toast along with a cold something was excellent. Both owners always make time for a chat and a smile with guests - see you both again!

Nice views, a few stray roosters and dogs hanging around. The staff hit the dogs to try and keep them away. Map of the area, is very handy.
