Amazing food, fresh tasty and authentic. Good helpings and quick service. Salt and pepper squid was the best, try anything it's all good:)

We'd heard that Canton was excellent and while we were back up in Kingsland, Auckland we walked there to get some takeaways on a Saturday night.

The place was humming and absolutely packed. Very noisy, but that seemed ok with the diners.

We were greeted with a smile and placed our order. We waited outside and our meals were brought to us in about 10 minutes. All good so far.

We took the meals hone and plated them up. We were very disappointed. The veges were ok and the squid dry and overcooked. Hugely overpriced at $49 for the 2 trays.

I wouldn't recommend Canton.

I have been to Canton Cafe only about 3 -4 times and the food is always great. We just called in today for lunch - we ordered the Blackened Chilli Prawns (which we also order) and Chicken Fried Rice - both are excellent and too much to eat in one sitting so the left overs have come home with us and we will have them for dinner - the only negative I have is that you sometimes can't stop eating! The decor is basic, the staff are good but the food is excellent!!

The food here is undoubtedly great, especially the duck and prawn dishes! However the service is pretty shocking. Got told to leave after an hour and a half because the next group was here. Weren't offered a new table or somewhere to finish our meal, just we had to leave!

Great food as always, and as usual very fast kitchen. Staff seems sometimes too busy especially on Fridays.
