Ate at this Honley restaurant over the weekend and it does a great job of showing off Chinese cuisine. Great variety of dishes that go beyond just Cantonese and Sichuan options but all the classics are there too. Everything we ordered was light and tasty...More

Been here many times and food (especially the crispy duck and chow mein) has been consistently delicious, fresh and flavourful. Service from the staff is always polite and friendly, if you catch Roy the owner on a slower evening he is a pleasure to talk...More

Without a doubt the worst Chinese I’ve ever had. Me and my partner have had to throw both our meals in the bin. The rice was stale and the chicken inedible. Recent reviews state “bland”, I think that’s being overly nice.. Thankfully it was a...More

I have to say a lot of the comments on here are true, the restaurant was empty, the staff were not interested really and we found the food bland but OK. No atmosphere, will not be returning.

Having used this chinese before, when at my parents house, we decided to give it a go ourselves. Will not be using again! After a very rude person taking the order over the phone, my anticipation of the meal started to diminish. I was not...More

The food and drink was excellent, especially the house sauvignon. The low rating is due to the barman/manager shouting at other members of staff during service, highly unprofessional and smoking in the door way is unacceptable. He ruined the atmosphere in the restaurant and this...More

A stylish Cantonese Restaurant based in the heart of Honley village, near Huddersfield. An excellent and fine dining restaurant. Interior décor has to be seen. It's a little gem! Not to be confused with our sister restaurant in Huddersfield Town Centre (The Canton Chef, Huddersfield).
