Service is efficient, although not overly friendly. Food came quickly and was served hot. Prices are reasonable. Like all such restaurants, it can be noisy although it seems a popular spot for local business folks to chat over a bite.

A bright, clean, airy restaurant with well distributed tables and elegant table settings. The greeting by one of the wait staff was unfriendly and we were left to wait for too long to have our order taken - and then one of the dishes we had delivered was not what we had ordered. The waitress played the "not speak English"... 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 to do. Their food used to be authentic and good at reasonable prices. Our last... More

My wife and I had yum cha lunch here. While we found its several dim sum dishes OK and inexpensive, it was not particularly appealing. As it was a weekday, only a few tables were taken. I suppose it could be bust during weekends.

We were the only non-asians in the place and they looked after us like royalty. Food was really good. Was very busy, but service was good.

If you like gluggly noodles, almost no meat or vegetables and indifferent service, then this is the place for you. Will never return.
