“Greatly improved”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

Had takeaway from here twice in the last month and I have to say it was the best chinese we've had for years. Beats the other local ones hands down. Staff are friendly and waiting times are short. In past years the food has been poor but recently they have improved massively. The food is fresh, crispy and full of flavour. Chicken is fresh and not dry and tough, pancake rolls are crispy, rice falls out the container instead of prising out an overcooked lump, prawn crackers taste of prawn, and sweet and sour sauce isn't one bright red jelly mess. Both times they've got our orders right which other Chineses seem to find impossible!. We have takeaways regularly and will now choose Canton Kitchen above the rest. They no longer deserve the poor reviews they've had in the past.
