This was the first time we tried Canton Palace. The other weekend we were turned off that they would not home deliver before 8.00pm as they were too busy.

But I really did want to give them a second chance to see if the Good Reviews were true.

Low and behold they were true.

Great food, good to very good service. Friendly staff. The food was lovely and well presented. The Restaurant was warm and quality of food very good. The only thing I would fault is that our Fish dish came some 10 minutes later into the meal and our rice went cold (ish). It's probably better to service most dishes together or within a few minutes. But at least the waitress recognised that we did not receive and chased the Kitchen for this.

would I go back - Most definitely yes!!!

We have been to this restaurant many times and it doesn't disappoint. It is a modern Chinese restaurant with a diverse menu and very friendly staff. It also has some awesome gelato style desserts that you can't go past!

Picked because it was just a short walk from our hotel on a freezing night, we didn't know what to expect. But the service and food was terrific, one of the best Cantonese experiences in recent times.

We drove past this place several times during our trip and always saw tour buses parked outside. It's usually wise to be wary of tourist-oriented Chinese food but we were glad to discover that the (takeaway) food provided decent Cantonese fare after all.

The dishes we ordered were satisfying, the only comment is that the Chicken and salty fish fried rice dish could have done with a stronger flavour of the salted fish itself.

If like us you're a tourist hankering for takeaway, I suggest first checking out the menu on their rather decent website (the other Chinese restaurants we were thinking of ordering from in the area didn't even seem to have online menus yet) and phoning your order in. It proved handy on a cold night to waltz in and out with takeaway while a few people were waiting for their still.
