I've been eating here since it opened (previously was Nardi's chip shop). Good portion sizes (spring rolls are massive and 1 is enough for two people as a starter!). Quality on the whole is good, but can vary at times, particularly when it's busy. The food style is more "British Chinese", than genuine Cantonese. Highlights include beef and onions and... More

We always go here on a Sunday night as our treat and it never let's us down. Charlie the owner is always very pleasant and knows everyone by their first names. When we go in he always knows our order without us telling him. Once you try here you will keep going back for many years.

Best chicken curry in Aberdeen Always really good - have been going for years and always consistent. Too busy on Saturday nights though - orders can take a while

...Would be from here. I haven't lived in Aberdeen for the best part of twenty years but when I come to (infrequently) visit family I always make a beeline for here. I love their lemon chicken and the guys STILL recognise me after all this time.

Used to be my fav place till they started to serve that awful white cheap chicken and still charge a high price for. It has stagnated as has other take aways in Aberdeen using that cheapo chicken.... Have now found a place that uses REAL chicken and it's curry sauce is just as good as the Canton's one.

A real gem of a place in Aberdeen, as I stay 30 minutes away from the canton house, and pass atleast 6 chinese takeaways to get to there. But the food is worth the effort to go and get it, I usually have the king prawn chow mein with a curry sauce dip and it is the best!! Their curry... More

In my opinion this is the best Chinese Takeaway in Aberdeen. I probably pass at least 5 others from my home to get to Woodside. The food is excellent, cooked promptly and the staff are very friendly.

From the outside next to the fountain bar, this might seem like a rundown Takaway, Appearance can be deceiving! For years I've been told by friends to give it a try, there's no delivery service, so was in the area, It was time to try, Friendly service! Staff even called a taxi for me, I had lovely chicken balls, with... More
