ONLY the food is perfect

Apart from the food, nothing really pleased me. the waiter and waitress really have NO skills at all. They really do not know how to serve customers nor how to talk to customers at all but the great food covers that all. I don't know why the owners have employed unskilled workers. i don't blame the... read more

I enjoyed that it was a limited menu. The tofu w/pork was very good. The chicken with onions was delicious. The garlic shrimp and butter were a little oily but the shrimp was good. It comes with the shells on. It would be better without the shells. The fish is tasty and I usually don't care for fish much. The... More

Pick whatever you want at this restaurant, it's definitely going to be a unique experience. And don't forget to taste the Dim Sum, it's truly one of the finest in Port Louis.

The food is good, the service is good. An affordable restaurant where you can eat good food in the company of the ones you love.

large variety of Chinese dim sum dishes. If you go on Sunday, better to make reservation since the place is very popular. Price somewhat on high side but OK since in general quality of food is quite good. Service can be somewhat slow since not enough waiters when large crowd.

This is one place where I could go to eat everyday. The food is excellent and the place is just cozy, really comfortable and nice to chill and meet people you love. Will always drop by at grand canton whenever I find the time! This is 'the' place to be where quality meets comfort!

Great welcome and nice new decorated restaurant. But food is average Fried noodles too dark (exces of soya sauce) Order a beef course: and there were more vegetables (i mean onions and red/green pepper instead of meat itself) Drinks too expensive 4*times the retail price. Its just a restaurant not a 5*hotel in town.

Seems like where ever you go to eat in Mauritius the food is always over cooked, the same was here as well. Fish foods over cooked, Chicken rubbery, best thing was the special rice.

I fly back home every year and I have to say that Grand Canton is always on the top of my check list. When I'm there it just feels like home again. The owners are very welcoming and the atmosphere very warm. I love their steamed fish and I can confirm that they do use fresh caught fish. Also their... More
