Reviews of Canton Lake Restaurant

  • Guys, I am now telling you guys how bad this new Canton Lake Restaurant () in Box Hill is! Food was ok, BUT!!!! Bad service! Rice are charged $2.5 per person and yes, just 2 of us. A bucket of rice wasnt given to us so they served us bowl per bowl. (Rice normally provided unlimitly in Chinese restaurant). We've asked if we can pack a bowl of rice in the container with our left over food, the staff said "rice is charged per person, not per bowl." So the answer was yes. Then the staff gave us some rice with a takeaway box (Less than half of the small takeaway container). Then all of a sudden, the management told staff that staff couldn't do that! Management told staff should have advised us that we need to pay for that! They were talking so loud (just behind our table) so we heard everything. I asked the staff at the end whether we've put staff in trouble, we apologised & told staff we would pay $2.5 for that extra bit of rice. Honestly, we understand worker doesn't have any right in making decisions but isn't it standard as to provide rice to customers? We were light eaters, so we only had 2 bowls of rice. They had no right to charge & count how many bowl of rice that customers have unless they stated that clearly on the menu. I feel sorry for the ex-owner who worked so hard to build up the reputation of his restaurant! Canton Lake used to be my favourite restauant in the past, but since they sold their business ,this restaurant is now a crappy place cos if the management doesn't know how to respect people(customer & staff), why should we care? Our tummies are full of fire right now! Also, their meals are not cheap...i rather go somewhere else & i really don't think i will visit this place again!! This place really ruined our mood!! (At the end, of cos they charged us 3 serves of rice!)

    The food here is of a very good standard and the price is average. There is ample interior seating and the staff are prompt and courteous. Recommended.
