We all had different dishes; duck, chicken, pork and mushroom soup and it all tasted delicious. Good service and friendly staff. Recommend it!

This used to be a very good Chinese place. Unfortunately, it switched owners. Now it serves bog standard westernized Chinese fast food but at the same high prices it used to have! There's no reason at all to come here anymore.

Brian, thank you for writing a review. First of all let me clear one thing out, the "new" owners took over 1.5 years ago... Old news, and the staff and menu is still the same. So same chefs, same menu, same groceries and yet you can taste a differens 1.5 years later :) It would have made sense if it... More

Sweet cantonese food as i expected (stekt anka,Yuntun soup and pork) The food is nice but not amazing as it has been described on the tropadvisor .. If you like swedish style sweet chinese food, it is recommended. But hey it is not cheap here. Anyway I still think superrullband is the only authentic Chinese restaurang in gbg.

Didn't even expect to be so good. Hot'n'sour soup - perfect. Went for duck - was very very good. If in Gothenburg back for some days, definitely will repeat.

We visited Canton House because of a recommendation and were not disappointed. The place is really nice with a cozy environment, the food was really good, and the staff was nice and welcomming. We sat there for quite a long time without anyone bothering us, which was what we needed after a long day of walking around. The only thing... More

Having been born in China, I always seek out the best Chinese restaurants in every city and I have been to a great many, from Canberra to NY, London, Oxford etc. Now, at last I have found one in Gothenburg that serves really top class Cantonese cuisine. The food is prepared with great care and is freshly cooked, so don't... More
