With a long history, exquisite cooking methods, numerous styles, and excellence in colour, aroma and taste, Cantonese cuisine is famous all over the world. In pursuit of perfection, well-known Cantonese cuisine demonstrates creativity, use of ingredient to art and craft balance with highly technical skills, and because of this gains much appreciation from diners with infinite charm.


In Hong Kong, modern Cantonese cuisine with impeccable views of the city could be found mainly in Central or Tsimshatsui. These are the places where diners can get to indulge in a very romantic environment no matter they are having drinks at pre-dinner lounge area or expansive outdoor terrace with harbour view in the backdrop, or enjoying delectable dishes inside with grand design of double-height floor-to-ceiling glass.


However, facing the forever fierce competitive food market Cantonese restaurants have to overcome the challenges attached to it to maintain a growing position. These years, some of them have already been seeking out new ways to incorporate modern flavours into nostalgic dishes and at the same time bring in digital management solutions to help manage the operation processes to preserve the best of traditional Cantonese cooking.

Being cloud based, the iPad POS also provides promising Cantonese cuisine owners with mobile cloud reports, from billing, purchasing management, inventory movement to accounting data, keeping them up to date with everything that happens in their restaurants.
