We had good service and the food was incredible. We had sizzling Venison which was to die for. Would definitely go back there.

We got takeaways from here after a LONG day in Milford Sound and were not impressed. It was over priced and the food was mediocre at best!

Had a birthday meal out with 8 of us including fussy kids 11 and 13. We had a banquet with chicken and corn soup for a starter and then entrees and 8 mains to share and sundaes to finish. It was licensed for BYO only which was a surprise nowadays but was ultimately fine. The food was very good, not... More

This was not very good Asian, I can honestly say I have made better at home and I'm not a professional by any means pure amateur which is very poor when you go out and expect to get a hell of a lot better than you can do yourself plus it wasn't cheap with the average Main being roughly $25....

I booked the Canton Restaurant to celebrate my husband's birthday. The owners prepared a lovely menu of dishes for this special occasion. All our friends and family loved the food. Do try the whole blue cod with the amazing sweet and sour ginger sauce - it's divine!

Having read the reviews about the restaurant I had serious misgivings on the advise given by our B&B hosts that we would not regret it. Shouldn't have worried we had a superb meal, choosing one of the family banquets for up to eight people the four of us had superb Chicken & Sweetcorn Soup, Wantons, all freshly cooked and four...
