Food far nicer than Ling di Long as far as takeaway concerned, can't comment on restaurant as haven't tried it. Would recommend.

“Greatly improved”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2013

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.

“If there was a zero rating I would have used it.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2012 via mobile

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.
