You would not think this little Chinese Cafe would have such great food. The shop decor is very ordinary and not really appealing, but it's the best chinese food I have tasted on the Gold Coast, everything I have tried from the menu is just perfect. They mostly cater to Take Aways but if you dine in, do have one... More

The Jin Mar has been in Mudgeeraba for years - and it looks it. But if you want awesome food, this is the place to be. I think it would be safe to say that the takeaway does better than the restaurant and all of the locals know it well. Fabulous prices, incredibly friendly staff and sensational food.

During the gold rush in the 1850's the Chinese came by the boatload in search of their fortune ...and discover that the gold in "them-thar-hills" was in providing nourishing, inexpensive Chinese-style food for the hungry miners. And now, wherever you travel in Australia, no matter how tiny the country town, there is alway a local "chow" shop ready to serve... More

Have never found such a fantastic garlic beef dish in any other restaurant (and I've lived in China) the food is never a let down my partner and I have been coming here for years. Fried rice can be a little plain sometimes but have never had another fault to say about it! Family run business and such a happy... More

Love this little place. Family owned - elderly Dad is the cook, Mum and adult daughter are out the front. Been here a few times now and the food is delicious. Have eaten in and had the takeaway, never had a bad dish from here. Fast service and very clean inside. Not licenced but you can byo. Doesn't look much... More

After a hard days work, cooking was not on the menu.I like the idea of finding a little restaurants that are not in the main st of restaurants or where as far as the eye can see all you can see is restaurants after restaurants... This place I have found is a little Gem, not flash in the inside but... More

Well what a little hidden treasure this turned out to be. We'd been on a day trip to Point Danger and on the way home, decided to have an early dinner. Hubby, being Asian, likes to spot Asian restaurants, and he spotted this one, Jin Mar, at Mudgeeraba along the M1 northbound. I had the most delicious Salt and Pepper... More
