This is a beautiful restaurant not the sort of decor that you find in your usual Chinese.Called for lunch and found the food excellent and the lunchtime prices great value for money.Service was friendly and very efficient and we will be making a return visit very soon.

My pub landlady gets dressed up to the nines to go to this restaurant and says the food is gorgeous. I will give the sit down do side of the house a try sometime. Unfortunately, last Saturday, I was in my muck when the wife announced she would like Sweet and Sour King Prawns with Fried Rice. So we rang... More

In a world where the Chinese restaurant has disappeared and been replaced by the dodgy all you can eat buffet...this is a hidden gem in Honley. Go there tonight!!

I was very impressed with the food here. Realy lovely won-tons and some deliciously tangy prawns. My Singopore noodles tasted great, if a bit heavy on the cinnamon for my taste. It was great to eat some Chinese food that had clearly been made with someone who cared about quality rather than people following a tired old format. The service... More

Absolutely the best Chinese food and restaurant I have ever been to. The staff are incredibly polite and attentive and when I go home (as I live in London now… when I lived at home I got a take-away probably 3 times each month) I always make time to at least get a take away from Canton Chef if I...

We decided to eat out once again and we visited this Chinese once again as we enjoyed it before. The night was bad weather wise but this Resturant was busy. We had to wait around half an hour but I tell you what it's well worth every minute of that wait. The food and service was brilliant. As Len says... More
