The place was buzzing with people so we though the food would be great! We just ordered San Choi Bow first. staff were friendly. But the meal was terrible, very gelatinous looking pork mince.

We tried the deep fried oysters and they're very nice indeed. The hot and sour soup, my fav, is tangy and hot... heart filling especially on a cold evening. Good service, and can customise the dish to be non spicy as we have little kids. Thankyou.

Surround very nice and staff friendly. Meals reasonable size and quality. Maybe spoilt by our regular restaurant, back in nsw, so thought this was a little overpriced and not as good as we are used to.

Always a family favorite of ours - Diana and Noel and their team always offer us a warm welcome. We love the steamed dimsum and their business lunch is great value! From the time our children were babies we have taken them here for family dinners. We love it!

A great traditional restaurant, and very well priced. I would suggest that you book as it is very popular and you may miss out. Good range of drinks and well priced food. One of the best in Launceston.

Have just had an excellent meal at the Canton restaurant. The service was friendly and efficient, and the dishes were excellent quality, really delicious. Our meals arrived quickly, including some vegetables I requested that are not on the menu. If you are visiting Launceston, I highly recommend the Canton restaurant.

Fortunately Canton was open on a quiet Sunday in Lonnie. We had the best steamed duck dish, with an amazing broth. Delicious!!
