Had takeaway from here twice in the last month and I have to say it was the best chinese we've had for years. Beats the other local ones hands down. Staff are friendly and waiting times are short. In past years the food has been poor but recently they have improved massively. The food is fresh, crispy and full of flavour. Chicken is fresh and not dry and tough, pancake rolls are crispy, rice falls out the container instead of prising out an overcooked lump, prawn crackers taste of prawn, and sweet and sour sauce isn't one bright red jelly mess. Both times they've got our orders right which other Chineses seem to find impossible!. We have takeaways regularly and will now choose Canton Kitchen above the rest. They no longer deserve the poor reviews they've had in the past.

Had a take away tonight as thought would give them a try again as not had food from there in ages. I now remember why we don't go there anymore! Ordered a quarter duck in the order which was not fit for consumption, even for a dog. It was as if it had been cooked about 4 times and was really tough. The meat would not come off the bone. Phoned the restaurant who said they would cook it better next time and put down the phone. We took the meat back and did get a refund but won't be back there. Will stick to Ling Di Long from now on.

Canton Kitchen used to be a take away but about 2 years ago they added a restaurant. We went for a birthday meal, not having been there before because a friend mentioned that their take-aways taste nice. The place was completely empty on a Bank Holiday Monday evening. The decor is as un-Chinese as you can possibly imagine. We were seated towards the back near the toilets although there were no other guests and there were plenty of free tables in the front near the window.
The starter (spring rolls) was ok. As a main meal I ordered duck in black bean sauce, my partner ordered chicken chow mein.
Given the price of the duck I had assumed rice was included - it wasn't. The duck itself was ok, although there was a distinct lack of black beans in the sauce, which tasted awfully artificial and gave me heartburn all night.
The chicken chow mein came as a real shock. The plate arrived and it looked like something I would not offer my dog. There was a load of chow mein noodles with some sauce splashed on, one sliced mushroom, a couple of bean sprouts and a few slices of reconstituted chicken. It tasted awful.
Had to wash down the food with plenty of beer to make it bearable.
The lady responsible for the service was friendly, but no knives were on offer and she was not particularly professional in appearance and behaviour.
All in all one to avoid.
