This canton-i outlet is located at LG level at the gardens, right to one end of the mall near coffee bean and bert's bees. It's very easy to get to but sometimes it can be quite packed at peak times so often you'll see the queue building around the entrance.
Simply put, I love coming to this restaurant. The food is never disappoints - it's delicious!
It's the kind of delicious where you'll spend the rest of your day trying to figure out how they could make a simple "duck rice" dish so lip-smackingly gorgeous.
Then it hits you ... the duck, the rice, both gorgeous as expected but then there's half of a boiled egg and a bit of veggie too, which you'd expect to be the "meh" parts - serving no other purpose but to add colour to your dish... but you'll be surprised, I sure was!
The egg was hot, firm and the yolk (which normally would be drier then the Sahara desert) was moist and appealing. The veggie was fresh with great texture and taste. It was a truly a great dish, a complete dish and very very satisfying.
That experience was my first time at canton-i and I've enjoyed every subsequent visit after that. The service is always tight with attentive and highly organised staff - sure, it's not perfect but it's pretty decent overall. There's an open kitchen at the entrance and at the back which I've always found fun to watch as I wait for my food.
A funny thing I've noticed is that although the "outside" wall is like this slanted array of panels which means you can see the diners inside - I've never felt like it made eating here any less private/personal. Good job architect guy!
In conclusion, I would highly recommend this place and everyone I've recommended it to says the same. The food is great, the price is reasonable and the experience is always pleasant.
