This isn't the best Chinese in the area, but it does have big round tables , which are great if you are a group. The waiting staff are not friendly .The food is OK , so it's a place to go for med size groups when you don't wish to drive.

Visited here on a Saturday evening - it was quite busy but we still got attentive service. Food was good and 'hot', which we both enjoyed. Would certainly go again.

A rare opportunity for my wife and I to enjoy a Saturday evening meal out in Haywards Heath. Having eaten at the Canton Chef several times before but not for a few years we thought we'd give it a try. We were able to get a table without booking but can now understand why. The decor has been the same... More

Have always loved this restaurant when we lived in the UK. We always make it a must to return here when we come over. The dishes are so authentic. The staff are very friendly and the restaurant is very stylish with its decor.

Ordered take away and started to tuck into my favourite dish of sweet and sour chicken balls and had to spit it out. It smelt and tasted of a cross between pee and manure. Thought it might just be one so smelt the other and they were the same. We'd ordered two lots and they were all the same. Had... More

This restaurant is clean and rather traditional from the interior, the two ladies who are serving are ok but need in certain areas some training this would proof the guest service. You have to know your wine on the menu, if I ask for dry don't let me end up with sweet wine and don't say I don't know wine... More

We always try and use the Canton Chef, if we are eating in, as the food is quite excellent. However, we gave up on take-a-ways a few years ago as they were so unreliable - weekends are our most precious time and standing in a Chinese restaurant for twenty minutes, on a Saturday night, waiting for a take-a-way that was...

The tinted windows always put me off going here! But one evening we though we would be brave and give it a go! We enjoyed a set meal of mixed starters, crispy duck, rice and 3 main dishes. Nice change to the Italians along the broadway :) we will return!

Chinese duck on the menu - think most customers have worked this out and would appreciate a bit more detail! All of the food was very good, especially the sizzlers Sizzling beef with green pepper was excellent
