Only really order a meat-with-rice dish at this place - their speciality. It's not a place for a long, drawn out meal with a load of dishes. Crispy pork and rice with tea is delicious and comes in at £6.50. Service is dire - I haven't seen a smile from the waiting staff in the last three years - but then this isn't La Gavroche.

I had been going to the Canton for a least 30 years. Has change ownership from January 2012. They fired all the chefs (what a big mistake). The food is not the same, and all those familiar faces are long gone. R.I.P Ps: New owner change the name the Canton is dead.


Never got round to try their food, because after 25 minutes of waiting, and 2 lots of table for 2 got table before I did when I (table for 1) got there before them, they told me they don't serve table for 1 that evening, appealing service!


Good place for a quick in-and-out sub-£10 meal, but the food has gone downhill since the new ownership changes. Bring back the proper decent pork and rice!
