Such a disappointment. 4 of us dined in an empty restaurant on a Thursday evening, bar one other single diner. We could only guess that kitchen staff had taken the night off and our server had drawn the short straw to work that evening, as her manner was awful and the food no better, Our food had all been deep...

Popped in here early evening on a Saturday. Our greeting was OK but the service throughout whilst efficient was miserable. Our waitress didn't smile or speak once which made a fairly negative impression. However the food was very good and manageable sized portions although it wasn't cheap.

Have been coming to the Canton chef over the years and I must say the taste and the standard of the food remains the same. This time included some other friends and my son's girl friend as they had not been there before. They were very impressed with the starters and main course that we ordered. I must say I... More

We decided to eat here for the first time and were amazed at the quality of the food - well done. The service was polite even if the decor could do with of a refresh. Worth a visit

This isn't the best Chinese in the area, but it does have big round tables , which are great if you are a group. The waiting staff are not friendly .The food is OK , so it's a place to go for med size groups when you don't wish to drive.

Visited here on a Saturday evening - it was quite busy but we still got attentive service. Food was good and 'hot', which we both enjoyed. Would certainly go again.

A rare opportunity for my wife and I to enjoy a Saturday evening meal out in Haywards Heath. Having eaten at the Canton Chef several times before but not for a few years we thought we'd give it a try. We were able to get a table without booking but can now understand why. The decor has been the same... More

Have always loved this restaurant when we lived in the UK. We always make it a must to return here when we come over. The dishes are so authentic. The staff are very friendly and the restaurant is very stylish with its decor.

Ordered take away and started to tuck into my favourite dish of sweet and sour chicken balls and had to spit it out. It smelt and tasted of a cross between pee and manure. Thought it might just be one so smelt the other and they were the same. We'd ordered two lots and they were all the same. Had... More

This restaurant is clean and rather traditional from the interior, the two ladies who are serving are ok but need in certain areas some training this would proof the guest service. You have to know your wine on the menu, if I ask for dry don't let me end up with sweet wine and don't say I don't know wine... More
