Are All OK?

(You and your friends are on the 2nd floor talking about restaurants on the 4th floor. You tell your friends that....)

I know there's a good Chinese restaurant on the upper floor.
I know there's a good Chinese restaurant two floors above us.
I know there's a good Chinese restaurant upstairs.

Additional Details:

It seems it's hard to keep TWO FLOORS in #1 and #3. We have to add another sentence to give more detailed info,such as it's on 4th floor or two floors above us. Not sure if you can use them in one sentence.

    #1 implies that the restaurant is on the top floor; that might not necessarily be the 4th floor. #3 implies that the restaurant is in the floor right above you (3rd floor). Either sentence would lead to confusion.

    Upper floor specifically means top floor. Upper floors (plural) means the floors closest to the top including the top floor.

    For # 3 you could say:

    I know there's a good Chinese restaurant a couple of floors upstairs.

    or

    I know there's a good Chinese restaurant a couple of floors up.
