Lovely

We have been to the Canton Chef in Honley several times, travelling quite a distance because it was the best chinese around. To find they had opened a sister restaurant in Huddersfield centre was a pleasant surprise. Please do not let some of the bad reviews here put you off, some are dated quite... read more

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.

We went to the new Canton Chef in Huddersfield town centre early on Sunday evening. Although quiet when we arrived, it soon became busier. The food , drink and service were all excellent. We shared a banquet for 4, and every course was fantastic, one of the best we have eaten. The manager and all the staff were very friendly... More

Was told under an hour upon ordering, food took over two hours to be delivered last night, called to be told car broken down, after having the phone put down on me on prior enquiry as to why food not turned up.

This was my first visit here but I found the food very bland & tasteless! I also asked for crab claws & when I got home they were actually prawns disguised as a large crab claws! The restaurant was very quiet & I can see why now!
