The Canton takeaway is great for its prices, I always get the large meal in a box deal because as much as I love Chinese, it is really filling and this is perfect portion size for me. The set meals are really good as well and the staff are lovely, if there's something you want changing when ordering then they're... More

I am not one to go on here and write things about restaurants but this meal was really awful! We have just moved to parkstone and wanted a local Chinese. I am gutted I wasted £30 here. Freezer burned duck (which I spat out) and frozen pre cut vegetables. They did offer me a free meal in replacement of this... More

We decided to try this Chinese for a takeaway, price was midrange when compared to other local takeaways. The food was very good. I would highly recommend trying the lettuce parcel starter: amazing!!! The crispy chilli beef however was limp and not crispy. Customer service was very good. All in all I would use again.

I have ordered about 4 times now from Canton, and I am extremely impressed with the fantastic level of customer service, excellent food and fair prices. I am so pleased I changed my Chinese as I realised before ordering from Canton I was being so ripped off! The delivery driver especially is wonderfully smart, kind and just so humbling and... More

I visited the place whilst friends were visiting... the restaurant was closed (for the forseeable future), however, the takeaway was open. The food was well cooked and packed. The food has improved and no weird dry-mouth aftertaste like that from a year ago. Each of the Grab-A-Box meals we ordered (G1, G2, and G3(Chicken)) was just the right size for... More

My family and I had a takeaway from The Canton on Saturday and it was by far the best Chinese takeaway I've had in Poole. The original owners are back with their own homemade cuisine and we're so glad. We had chicken satay, house curry, sweet and sour king prawn, Malaysian noodles, chilli beef and banana fritters-all of which was... More

I ordered a takeaway which I waited for an hour and 20 mins! First of all it was a struggle to order as the lady I was talking to did not seem to understand what I was ordering. I ordered a chicken curry and she repeatedly asked me if I wanted a bowl of rice despite having ordered 2 egg... More
