Not a place for a romantic dinner or date - way too noisy every time, but the food makes it worth it all. Try and book in advance as you won't get a place otherwise, especially on a weekend. Try their black pepper prawns, beef chili and sweet and sour chicken. Generally everything tastes great - very authentic.

Excellent Chinese food here. A great range of dishes, quick service and no fuss or bother. This place is a favourite with the locals and amongst the best in Auckland. Plenty of on street parking as well.

I think it's time for them to stop living on past awards. Food was very average with the added bonus that half of us were sick or had cramps over the following days. Service was as expected. Would not go again.

Amazing food, fresh tasty and authentic. Good helpings and quick service. Salt and pepper squid was the best, try anything it's all good:)

We'd heard that Canton was excellent and while we were back up in Kingsland, Auckland we walked there to get some takeaways on a Saturday night.

The place was humming and absolutely packed. Very noisy, but that seemed ok with the diners.

We were greeted with a smile and placed our order. We waited outside and our meals were brought to us in about 10 minutes. All good so far.

We took the meals hone and plated them up. We were very disappointed. The veges were ok and the squid dry and overcooked. Hugely overpriced at $49 for the 2 trays.

I wouldn't recommend Canton.
