Ordered food at 6.30 arrived at 8.. after several phone calls to the restaurant. We got the order and the duck was over cooked and solid. Rang the restaurant for the 4th time and they said they would send someone out with the duck within half hour. Still not arrived. Other than that food is ok.

I was very disappointed in the quality of food we ordered from Canton. A few years ago it used to be one of the best, however the food was revolting! The meat was undercooked, sauce was full of oil, rice was over cooked & the delivery was over the specified time given.

The man who served me was very pleasant and welcoming, unlike some takeaways I have been to. The waiting area was particularly smart too. Nice clean windows, a very nicely done area in front of the window, nice curtains, and a series of trays of plants nicely finished it off. The food was good,there wasn't anything I didn't like.

My mum in law had chicken with ginger and spring onion which she enjoyed. I had the duck with pineapple which was really delicious! Loved the mushroom rice and the egg... More

Tried Canton for the first time last night and very impressed. They offer dishes not available at other local takeaways. Very helpful over the phone, we asked for a timed delivery which they said would not be a problem. Driver was on time and very friendly. Food was very nice and had great flavour. Other Chinese takeaways sometimes their dishes... More

Sorry to say did not meet expectations, We were told it was a good meal but really it was not that good. Rice was very stodgy, Spare ribs were very naked. Crispy chicken was chewy. We will not be using again. Only good thing about it was delivery man very polite.

Thank carol g
