The only perk is that they serve dim sum for dinner, which is quite a rare thing as most dim sum restaurants stop serving dim sum after lunch. However, I assure you, the only perk ends there.

The egg tart was hard and cold and it lacked the usual flaky crust that I enjoy. The char siew baked bun was probably the only thing in the entire meal that was passable. The crust was kind of thick but it tasted pretty all right. 

The shrimp dumpling (har gao) had a very thick "skin" and the prawn within was not big and juicy like how good dim sum should be. The fried shrimp roll was very dry and I had the same grouse about the prawn - it was not juicy at all! The cheong fun (rice roll) was average but really, how could you go wrong with rice rolls. I felt that the glutinous rice in lotus leaf and E-Fu noodle were both average.

Good service and Good food!

Really love to come here with my bf. think today will be probably our 5th or 6th time in less than a year! It's quite rare for us to patronize a restaurant so frequent since we love to try new places everytime. We love coming back here for meals not only because the food is good (not fantastic but good enough), but the service was really good! The very first time we step foot here at 112 Canton, this service manager, Bryan Lee Koon Sing, has been making our dining experience so fun and relaxed. He loves to joke, keep us entertained whenever he's available, and always make sure we enjoy the food well! So thankful for him! I seriously think if there's any good F&B award, and I know n can vote, I would vote for him!! Good job, Bryan! Continue being a joy to the customers who patronize!

My 9th visit in 3 months

Popped by Canton Paradise @ I12 Katong one weekday afternoon for some dim sum to chase away the weekday blues. I honestly would have preferred Wah Lok but  didn't quite fancy jostling with the CBD crowd and it definitely helped that the porridge at Canton Paradise had a certain allure. Just for the record, as at time of writing, I've been to Canton Paradise a total of 9 times in 3 months, but this is probably going to be my only post on Canton Paradise (I am usually too famished during lunch to bother taking photos). And yes, I'm that crazy about dim sum.   The place is huge and sports a rather "ancient Chinese" decor with its uneven brick walls and wooden decorative panels. If you can stand the cold air conditioning, ask for a booth seat (2-4 pax) because the other tables are spaced a tad too close for comfortable conversation.    BBQ Combination - We had the combination platter of BBQ pork belly with honey sauce and roasted pork, of which the former was sinfully better with a high fat to meat ratio and smothered in gooey honey marinade. I personally like to eat the BBQ pork belly with the salted peanuts that are served alongside. Makes for a nice contrast in both areas of taste and texture. Unfortunately, the BBQ pork's skin wasn't crisp enough and I think they need to add in a wee bit more salt for flavouring.   Steamed Cheong Fun with BBQ Pork - The cheong fun featured translucent but rather limp skin with a reasonable amount of BBQ pork filling. Decent but no great shakes. And remember to eat immediately when served, lest it turns cold and clammy.   Steamed Prawn Dumplings - Fresh, crunchy prawns coupled with translucent but mildly elastic skin. Pretty decent.   Steamed Pork Dumplings - The "porkyness" of the siew mai wasn't too overwhelming and the fat to lean meat ratio was reasonable. As with most dim sum items, eat them while they are hot.   Century Egg Porridge with Lean Meat - I personally think the porridge, especially the 皮蛋瘦肉粥, at Canton Paradise is quite good and this is one of the main reasons why I keep coming back. Consistently sticky with visible rice grains and a subtle, savoury aftertaste. And that's coming from someone who doesn't take century egg. The meatball porridge is nice as well but a little on the bland side.   Baked BBQ Honey Pork Bun - This is reminiscent of the one I had at Tim Ho Wan in HK. Unfortunately, the standards did not quite match up. For starters, the base was overly oily and the BBQ pork wasn't gooey enough. Decent but try the real thing from Tim Ho Wan when it opens in Singapore!   If my memory serves me correct, the bill for this lunch came up to around $50, which is pretty much the range you pay for decent quality dim sum these days. However the staff did seem a little overwhelmed with the place running at almost full capacity, which naturally led to slower service and forgotten requests.

Personalized service with good chinese food

Came here a couple of times and worth a return visit each time due to:

1) Delicious chinese cuisine food.
Not superb but good enough to finish everything up. Tried and covered many dishes from the menu from the trips down here so far. A soup is a must to accompany the main dishes. 

2) Personalized service.
Each time we come, we always look to be served by 1 of their service staff (Bryan Lee KS). Very hospitable, friendly, and is always happy to put a smile on customer face, to make our dining experience a joyful one. Add to the fact he recognises both me and my gf each time we dine here. A rarity in F&B service staff these days. A thumbs-up for their service due to employees like him.

3) Value
Reasonable prices as compared to other similar chinese eateries. With the additional rebate points earned, worth a return visit for some decent chinese food fare
