This place is faultless, the service is immaculate and the food is amazing, the best Chinese I have ever sampled. It comes out fresh and hot. I am a vegetarian and there is ample choice for all dietary requirements.

Good food, but took a couple of goes to get what we had ordered actually served, which as we all had the same starter was slightly odd

We use this Chinese not just because it is local but the food is excellent. Wonderful menu, very helpful and friendly staff, and always busy due to the quality of the food. If you want a good Chinese this is one of the best.

A stylish Cantonese Restaurant based in the heart of Honley village, near Huddersfield. An excellent and fine dining restaurant. Interior décor has to be seen. It's a little gem! Not to be confused with our sister restaurant in Huddersfield Town Centre (The Canton Chef, Huddersfield).
