Mister Kong's in Lisle Street has closed. We have wondered which Chinese style restaurant would replace that iconic venue. We have now found it with Canton in Newport Place. The service & speed was 100%. Ribs in salt & garlic is often the matrix our entourage work to. Superb. Another lot ordered. Duck, pork, beautifully wokked vegetables and most of... More

We also came in following the chef working in the front window displaying the ducks. We have had the pork steamed dumplings, the lettuce wrap, vegetable soft noodles and the Thai style duck. It was all delicious. Nothing too fancy but very good service and reasonable price.

This is a basic, no frills, Chinese restaurant. Food arrived quickly, and the quality of service was good. It's better to visit on a weekday, as it's often full at the weekend.

Was recommended to try this restaurant for lunch. Canton's decor is basic and the dining area was small and busy with mainly local Chinese clientele dining (a good sign). The menu has plenty of choice. We ordered chicken and sweetcorn soup and a mixed plate of starters which were all very tasty and portions were good. For main courses we... More

Often noticed this small unpretentious restaurant with its chef in the window and display of assorted flat ducks etc! On Tuesday at 3pm decided to give it a try for a light lunch.... Prawn crackers OK. Crispy seaweed lukewarm, not very crisp and tasted as if it had been cooked in very old oil. Same with the half crispy aromatic... More

Don't come here expecting anything but the most basic facilities.The food is very straightforward.I had roast duck soup noodles for £6.50.There was a reasonable amount of duck and the soup was tasty.Service was friendly and quick.So if you are not put off by the austere surroundings its worth giving it a try.

The food was very crude, lacking any complexity and definitely not what you expect in a decent Chinese restaurant. However, the Chinese group nearby seemed to be enjoying it so maybe they are doing something right! The waiter became angry, it seemed, when we declined to pay the so called optional service charge. I am afraid I cannot recommend this... More

As I was alone in Soho during lunchtime on a weekday I decided to have a bowl of beef brisket soup noodles. Unfortunately my regular restaurant was closed and when I read the signage of Canton restaurant had "noodles specialists ",I decided to try this place without the benefit of reading reviews. This is a typical congested Chinese restaurant in... More

We call in for a cheap meal: could be a plate, or soup, or more. Its a bit basic plastic teak table, but the food is very good. Their duck is so tender and tasy.

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
