This is a typical Cantonese restaurant, could have been anywhere in world. The food was good but nothing special, pick of our dishes was Peking duck and the accompanying soup, crispy pork was at least crispy but very fatty, salt and pepper prawns, vegetables and rice all standard issue. The wine list very limited but well priced. Worth a visit... More

We just went there 30 mins before closing. But, they welcomed us and served very nice dishes without complaining. We wanted to take steamed fish. However, it was out of stock... Maybe next time!

The restaurant is very clean and well looked after. The service was quick and the food good. The wine list was a bit limited. The food was a little bland for me though. We were in a group of 5 and squeezed onto a small table, they could have offered a larger table. All the food arrived together not allowing... More

Having read the reviews of Grand Canton, and previously eaten many many times at the sister restaurant Cafe Canton which is just around the corner, I had reasonable expectations of good dim sum. Unfortunately, I found the dim sum selection very limited and everything we ordered was all a bit ordinary in taste. Some dishes were tepid on arrival and... More

Each time, I can not resist the envy to go to Grand Canton : the food is excellent, the owner (formely Mr Lai and now his son) and the staff are very welcoming and friendly. The steam fish is delicious. The restaurant, which has been renovated recently, offers... More
