A Cantonese Restaurant based in the village of Honley, 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).

Second visit and still very very good. Beautiful decor and exceedingly friendly staff. It makes a change to go into a Huddersfield restaurant and feel you can "dress up" for the evening. Being very picky... the plates could have done with being hotter.

Our second recent visit and once again we were very impressed. Had the banquet for two and the food was excellent. Service here is always excellent. If you like Chinese food then the Canton Chef is well worth a visit.

Went with my partner to this restaurant as we live in Manchester and had seen good reviews on trip advisor. We were not disappointed. The staff were very friendly and seemed to be enjoying their jobs. Very smart uniforms and the manager was on scene and very friendly. The food was very good indeed. My chicken Satay to be honest...

This was a family birthday celebration so we threw caution to the winds and asked for a banquet for nine. What a good idea that turned out to be, with plenty of interesting dishes and something to suit everyone served on a large round table with a 'lazy susan'. Service was faultless from a team of waitresses who were friendly,... More
