The Gold Coast isn't all surf, sand & salads. Along the old Gold Coast highway 10 minutes from Broadbeach is Mandarin Court, a staple for Chinese food on the coast for longer than the locals can remember.
Big Tables, white tablecoths, & live seafood tanks - this place has everything you'd expect. What you might not expect though, is the awesome Yum Cha on offer during the day. Arrive with an appetite, because you won't be able to turn down any of the bamboo baskets as they come to your table. Highly recommend washing it all down with a Tsing Tao or 4!
