“Schezuan Eggplant!”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

Love this place - try the schezuan eggplant - it is divine. Spicy, tasty, oily... nom nom! Can be a bit frenetic there but love the atmosphere. If you'd prefer family-friendly, head to Katoomba's Canton Palace instead.

“Nice Chinese but wasn't amazing”
Reviewed October 11, 2013 via mobile

The food was nice and tasted fresh but the beef and cashew lacked flavor. The omelette was very nice though. Service was fantastic, and was reasonably priced.

“Good food, reasonable price and attentive, friendly service”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

Although the name of this restaurant suggests Cantonese food, in fact they serve good Sichuan cuisine as well. Friendly, efficient service, a comprehensive menu with recommended favorites, byo and wine list. Good value.

“Great Food”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

All meals are just wonderful whether you eat in or take away, It is licensed for but some nights it is not available due to waitress staff being underage.

“Wish we had more of these restaurants in the US”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Low to Mid priced Chinese restaurants in the states usually have less physical appeal than a cardboard box. Therefore, we were pleasantly surprised by how nice Canton Palace was. The place is tastefully decorated in a fusion style, was very clean, and had a friendly hostess.

We went for lunch and found it very affordable, for about $10 a person. I had a seafood dish that tasted very fresh and high in quality by Asian restaurant standards. This was a nice change from the typical greasy and defrosted Chinese food. My husband had their honey chicken which he also enjoyed.

The location is also great, just by the train station. This was definitely one of the better bangs for our buck to date.
