Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It has been some years since we enjoyed the delights of Jimmy Wah's restaurant. However on our current holiday from Perth, we went with friends and enjoyed a wonderful lunch at this lovely Burleigh Heads restaurant. We describe this restaurant as Asian Fusion - but...Asian Fusion at its best. The service from the various wait staff is professional, friendly without being overbearing. The staff are forever monitoring the tables and know just when to serve the various meals , allowing time to really enjoy each dish, then quietly clearing our table to allow us to savor one of their wonderful wines. The restaurant has won awards for its small but quality wine list. We enjoyed fresh Tempura oysters, Vietnamese Pancake, Kingfish Sashimi, Beautifully cooked half chicken, sticky pork ribs and green curry barramundi. ALL WERE SUPERB. This is a delightful restaurant in delightful Burleigh heads . There are major works occurring outside the restaurant as the Gold Coast City Council extends the light rail from Broadbeach to Palm Beach. However please do not be deterred- the meals and wine and service more than make up for the very slight inconvenience of having to park in nearby James Street ( a 3 minute walk to the restaurant). Well done and thank you to the staff. And sincere thanks to you all for making our Gold Coast Holiday a memorable one.More

The food is beautifully presented and the staff were wonderful, but I wasn't overly impressed. The meals are meant to be shared, but I ordered a meal and rice to accompany it, but the meal came out 20 minutes before the rice. I found the...food overly salty for my taste and some of the dishes had too many spices, some of which had conflicting tastes and could have been left out for a better tasting meal. All in all, the food was just average in my opinionMore

Had the "feed me" option. Great variety and plenty of food! Had family of 6 with 4 20+ kids. Everyone enjoyed all dishes. Highly recommend.

Came here after a long time not coming here after a previous bad experience but redemption is a virtue. Things started off extremely well with very attentive staff and drinks being served promptly as well as the food coming out well spaced and timely. Too...ups of drinks was very good and the food amazing. There was a lady bringing out the food who was lovely and always making a joke. The guy was equally as good. We got to our last dish and the guy offered us fresh clean plates which never came. After 10mins we asked for them and they arrived. But we were full and got a takeaway container. I did enjoy my experience this time around.More

Great food, nice cocktails and fitout. We visited mid week for dinner and staff were friendly and accommodating as we had booked for the wrong date but they found space. Not recommended for a dinner that lingers as they began packing up around 9pm.

Our favourite restaurant on the Gold Coast. Service is always excellent and food is fabulous. Love the Feed Me menu to try a range of dishes and sometimes newer dishes not in the normal menu.

We ordered the ‘just feed me’ banquet and couldn’t believe the amazing quality of each and every dish! The service was excellent too , which really makes all the difference. If you love fish and seafood you’ll love Jimmy Wahs - they do cater for...non fish-eaters as well. We ordered the chilled Spanish red wine which complemented the food beautifully. Only a couple of low-lights - it’s very noisy when all the tables are full, and a finger bowl would be much appreciated as you use your fingers a lot to eat. It really is good, and we left with our tummies full 💕More

Great little restaurant on gold coast highway. Tables are a reasonable way apart. SERVICE IS terrific ,friendly,engageing and professional. We had half a dozen Merlmbula oysters and some crispy spring rolls as entrees. Our main was superb,a grilled Barramundi,yellow curry with snow peas,green beans and...sprouts. Everything on the plate melded,the sauce was exquisit and hands down one of the best fish curries I've had. A bottle from a tight little wine list finishedf a great meal.More
