I went in today to order half roast duck for takeaway. When I got home there was only 3 pieces that had meat and the rest was just fat, skin and bones! I phoned them up and the guy just laughed nothing he can do. They charged me £11.15 for that! Total Rip of Merchants stay away.

When for a Saturday night meal with my husband before going to the theatre. Chose a set menu starting with soup, then duck, followed by four dishes and rice. They were are delicious. The portions were good and the price was very reasonable.

Perhaps we were unlucky. We have been coming here for years. Today we did not recognise the staff or the chef in the window. We had Char Sui pork which tasted awful and sweet and sour pork which wad really hard and crunchy. Will never go back.

Took the family there on Sunday. Tired looking restaurant with off putting (offal) in the window. That said, service was excellent, friendly and efficient. Restaurant was packed with Oriental people - a good sign! We had 3 very good vegetarian dishes and a duck in black bean sauce. Although the duck was tasty there were some unfortunate chewy bits in...

A new year so another visit to Canton and we weren't disappointed. The usual Chinese food, the usual good standard. It's true this is a fairly basic Chinese restaurant, there are no fine touches but it's good value and the dishes are good. I recommend a visit if the above appeals

We ate with our family of 4 children. We wanted a quick, straight forward Chinese meal before seeing a show in London. This isn't a restaurant for a long romantic meal. But the meal was good, and reasonably priced - and with quick service. Just what we needed.

Mister Kong's in Lisle Street has closed. We have wondered which Chinese style restaurant would replace that iconic venue. We have now found it with Canton in Newport Place. The service & speed was 100%. Ribs in salt & garlic is often the matrix our entourage work to. Superb. Another lot ordered. Duck, pork, beautifully wokked vegetables and most of... More

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
