While we have been featuring lots of Thai food on AroiMakMak.com, we also feature other cuisines in Bangkok. One cuisine which we haven’t featured is Cantonese food. Being a Cantonese myself, while I’m blessed to get good Cantonese cuisine or dim sum in Singapore, replicating that experience here in Bangkok has been a challenge.


The anticipation of Canton Paradise’s arrival at Bangkok’s CentralWorld had been building for months, even as the restaurant underwent renovations. Given my frequent visits to Singapore’s own Canton Paradise, it only seemed fitting to gauge the quality of its Bangkok flagship.


Stepping into Canton Paradise, the familiar decor greeted me, but it evoked an even better ambiance than its Singapore counterparts with its high ceilings. The menu too felt like an old friend. With all-day dim sum, roast meats, Hong Kong-style congee, and wok-fried Cantonese specialties on offer, the real test lay in how these flavors would translate to Bangkok.


BBQ Combination [480฿] – You cannot visit a Cantonese restaurant and not try their roast delights. The BBQ Combination consists of Charred BBQ Pork with Honey Sauce, Crackling Pork Belly and Crispy Roasted Duck which showcased impeccable roasting techniques and balanced flavours.


Century Egg and Shredded Pork Congee [220฿] – The Century Egg and Shredded Pork Congee offered a comforting embrace with its velvety congee slow-cooked to creamy perfection, topped with century egg, shredded pork, and crispy dough – a symphony of textures and tastes.


Shrimp Roe Noodle [180฿] – One of our favourites here, this egg noodle dish looks simple but is cooked to perfect al dente texture. The main star is the shrimp roe, infusing the dish with its distinctive briny essence and vibrant orange hue, creating a flavourful contrast.


Stir-fried French Bean with Minced Pork & Preserved Olive Vegetable [250฿] – Vibrant and crisp French beans that are stir-fried with tender minced pork, adding savory depth and contrast.


Sweet and Sour Pork [300฿] – No Cantonese meal is complete without Sweet and Sour Pork – tender pork enveloped in a crisp batter, harmonizing with the tangy-sweet glaze for a medley of textures and tastes. They make an amazing version here in Bangkok.

Wok-fried Carrot Cake in XO Sauce [220฿] – Canton’s Paradise Wok-fried Carrot Cake is stir-fried to achieve a contrast between its crispy exterior and soft interior. The XO sauce gives the dish the umami-ness with its blend of dried seafood, chilli, and spices.


Steamed Prawn Dumpling [135฿] – Commonly known as “Har Gow,” prawns subtly seasoned to showcase their natural sweetness, embraced by the delicate, chewy dumpling skin. This is hands-down one of the most authentic “Har Gow” in town.


Steamed Pork Dumpling [135฿] – These dumplings also known as “Siu Mai” feature a delicate, open-faced wrapper embracing a mixture of minced pork and chunks of fresh prawn.


Crispy BBQ Honey Pork Bun [160฿] – Offering a delightful alternative to the classic steamed “Char Siew Bao” – this bun has sweet crispy exterior unveiling a silky savory honey-glazed pork filling, creating a delightful clash of textures and flavours.


Milk Tea [100฿] – What makes Hong Kong Milk Tea different is the blend of strongly-brewed robust black tea and evaporated milk, resonating a comforting warmth and a delicate balance of bitterness and creaminess.


Canton Paradise has gracefully brought the heart of Cantonese cuisine to Bangkok’s food scene. Be sure to drop by CentralWorld for your fix of authentic Cantonese cuisine. If I’m living in Bangkok, this will be the Cantonese restaurant I will frequent to satisfy my cravings!
