On my most recent visit to Guangzhou, China, I stay at the Marriott Tianhe hotel and tried an authentic Cantonese meal at their Man Ho restaurant. When I arrived, I was happy to see tons of local people. Seeing locals informed me that the food will be fantastic! The dining room is what you’d expect at this type of classic Cantonese restaurant. We were quickly seated at a lovely table with a view and took a look at the menu.
The menu at Man Ho is quite extensive but the restaurant does offer a few set menus which makes things easier for easier decision making. We went with the Cantonlicious set for 2 B. You do still get some options to choose from, but they’re more narrowed making ordering a breeze. We of course started with tea and worked our way through the first course of food which included dried anchovies and marinated spicy beef. Once I sunk my teeth into these dishes, I knew the rest of the evening would be a treat!
For example, the sweet-and-sour pork was the best sweet-and-sour pork I’ve ever had in my life! This is no exaggeration. The inside was moist and tender and yet had a crispy outside full of flavor. Some of the other amazing dishes I really enjoyed included the honey glazed barbecue pork and the roasted goose. But let’s be honest, I enjoyed everything that I ate that evening. Thinking about it now makes my mouth water!
To wrap up the meal we went with the mango soup and the chilled mango pudding. A lighter dessert was perfect to finish off this hefty meal. The service during the meal was great. The staff were always around to make sure we were helped even though the restaurant was busy. The staff were nice enough to give us some control over how fast or slow the food was delivered. All in all, I had a fantastic evening! If you’re looking for great Cantonese food Guangzhou I would insist you to try the Man Ho restaurant at the Marriott Tianhe in Guangzhou, China.
