Welcome to the longest-established Cantonese restaurant in South Wales – The Riverside Cantonese, a Cardiff institution. All in a brand-new, purpose-built space complete with a kitchen designed to allow you to see how it’s done.

There’s a reason why customers keep coming back year after year. Our Hong Kong-trained chefs may keep up with trends from home, but they never lose sight of the ancient tradition that has made Cantonese food the most popular in Britain.

The menu is continually evolving, but if you can’t see something you’ve had or heard of on your travels, please ask.
