Best Chinese in Yorkshire

Had the most amazing meal in Canton Chef, Huddersfield last night with some friends. We all thoroughly enjoyed the food, the service and the atmosphere. Would certainly recommend it.

Can only praise the dim sum selection but some items on the menu were distinctly below par. Special Fried Rice on the Specials was very poor, measly portions and minute pieces of pork, very expensive for what was served and no chicken or other ingredients. Decor fantastic, service fantastic but the food needs be improved.

The restaurant is tastefully decorated spacious and clean and large. The staff are very accommodating and friendly we asked the manager for something different that wasn't on the menu he made it specially and it was no trouble, my partner wanted duck and pork together he got a full duck breast and pork, Chinese style it was delicious.

Whilst this portrays quality & recommendations on our visit the food was as good as the local takeaway! Too much style over substance ! Great ambient surroundings but if your were wearing a blindfold I'm not sure you could distinguish between the 3 main courses we chose - they seemed bland & lacked depth of flavour. Yes we will revisit... More

Re-furbished and re-opened in the former Kings/Jumbos premises on John William Street HD1; No longer buffee style, can be a little pricey eg set meal for six £24 each, 20 of us enjoyed a Birthday Party Meal. Within easy reach of the Railway Station,Taxis and Nightlife.

We visited the Canton Chef with our teenage girls and once again the food was perfect and the service was spot on. One of our daughters has Autism and is therefore a very fussy eater but this proved to be not a problem at the Canton Chef as nothing was too much trouble and they were helpful. Thank you Canton...

We have been to The Canton Chef now on three occasions. The food is delicious and the staff are fantastic. The service is second to none. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.

brought a friend for 1st visit to Canton Chef , having myself been once when lovely and once when not quite so good. Unfortunately although the decor is fab and the staff very attentive the 2 main courses were bland and the Shangai Beef was congealed and tasted worse than it looked. Was looking forward for so long to having... More

Delivery was quick. Ordered the wrong take away company by mistake. Dry, untasteful food. Did I mention dry. I ordered salt and pepper chicken. I think they'd put the spice in the plastic container about a week ago. 90% uneaten. Shame, we'd always eaten here.

Originally booked for Thursday night but had to put back to Friday night but this wasn't a problem for them. Went as a party of 7 and all of us were more than impressed. Excellent service & top quality food. Made to feel welcome. The place is clean & open, on this basis we would highly recommend going.
