Service not very polished but food more than made up for it!

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... read more

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!

We have eaten Chinese food from Hong Kong to Soho London (China town), we have had the best and the worst the Chinese food industry has to offer. The Canton Chef John William Street Huddersfield (not Honley) is defiantly one of the best (if not the best) we have had. The layout and surroundings are of a high standard, its... More

The quality appears to have changed both with food and service, what has happened? Shame as was always so impressed but definitely not impressed and feel as... More

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In a world where the Chinese restaurant has disappeared and been replaced by the dodgy all you can eat buffet...this is a hidden gem in Honley.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