I would personally ignore reviews from pre 2017, as the new owners have eliminated the awful service that used to exist. We visited twice in 3 days (my father in law loved the food - he's from Hong Kong). We had groupa both time, dau...More

Tried to call to make a booking for fourteen people. The phone was answered by a lady who did not speak a single word of English. We both tried for a moment but then I gave up. I think we'll book somewhere else.

Canton Lake was once our favourite restaurant to go for good quality chinese food in Box Hill. Because of my background my expectations is high but not unreasonable. Fiona, the boss lady, greets and serves customers promptly. She is the only person that knows what...More
