Indulge in authentic Cantonese and all day dim sum at Canton Paradise, a casual Hong Kong-style eatery presented by the Paradise Group of Restaurants. Canton Paradise offers a tantalising menu of Cantonese delights that include succulent roast meats, congee, dim sum and noodles.
Canton Paradise sells not only Cantonese food, but also famous dishes from other branches of Chinese cuisine, such as Shanghai and Beijing. However, their best dishes are still Cantonese dishes in my opinion.
The place is nicely decorated, but the distance between tables is a bit on the narrow side, so you may feel a bit cramped.

I ordered porridge and transferred some to a small bowl for my son. The porridge taste ok from the big bowl. But when I tasted the porridge from the small bowl, it had a very soapy taste. Suspecting that the bowl was not cleaned properly and had detergent on it, I informed the waitress. To my amazement, the waitress brushed me aside and told me that it's was just the taste of the porridge. Only after I shown them another bowl for comparison, they relented and changed the porridge and bowl for me. I would definitely expect better hygiene standards and customer service from a restaurant like them!!
The standard of dishes don't justify the exorbitant amount we had spent on the meal. Even though there was a wide variety of food, most of the dishes were in small portions and they were nothing spetacular. Taste-wise, there were a few hits-and-misses that didn't live up to my expectations. The xiaolongbao was a disappointment with the meager broth and unimpressionable flavour.
The only few dishes that were decent was the chicken feet with black bean, the wok-fried black pepper pork, the french beans, the crackling pork belly, and the wok-fried beef with scallion. Honestly, tze char stalls would have offered better tasting dishes.
The time it took for our fried rice to be prepared was more than half an hour. Though the staff was prompt in clearing plates and refilling drinks, the waiting time for the dish was still rather ridiculous.
I don't think I'll go back again.
