7 DAYS A WEEK
Canton House is open seven data a week, but my favorite time to fine is definitely for weekend dim sum. Carts upon carts of delicious dumplings are available for the choosing, and chicken feet if you desire.
Great for dim sum – We go there often with the kids for dim sum on the weekends and sometimes for dinner as well. We love the $5 lobster specials during there anniversary special
Was not what I thought it would be – The decor was nice and looked very clean.The dim sum was mediocre with the exception of the fried spring rolls and I don't think I'll be going back.A creepy crawler crawled across my hand as I was eating my broccoli! Gross! I think I'll continue to be a regular at Hong Kong Harbour.
Great for families – I went to the Canton House for dim sum on Sunday. The place is great for families and they have a good selection of dim sum. Halfway through the chinese broccoli, I found a mealworm. The waitress was nice and took the broccoli off of my check and the manager apologized. I don't think I'll go back.
my dimsum place on sundays – I usually go to Canton House on Sunday mornings with a group of friends for some hot dimsum. Not too pricey, an ok atmosphere, and good food. I do not recommend the place for everyday Chinese food though. However I do recommend dimsum on weekends.
Good Food and Value – A coupon from Entertainment book few years ago was our discovery of this restaurant.
The manager of restaurant is very friendly. He always checks each table and has a good memory of guests. Found out he is from Vietnam and his parents are from Canton, China. We always have hot/good food and never had any disappointments. Portion is pretty big and their price is lower than many restaurants on Buford highway.
The Best Chinese Food we've had in Atlanta – They've recently remodelled and it is now an airy, spacious, almost beautiful set of two large rooms, with windows opening to a stretch of green, sparkling chandeliers, thick linen napery, and comfortable seating. A relaxing, comfortable setting -- except for the noisy, wildly popular weekend Dim Sum, when people are hanging from the rafters -- which is fun in its own right. However, they serve Dim Sum everyday, not as spectacular as the weekends, but pretty darn good. It's all about the food, which is terrific, with a varied menu that goes from unusual delicacies to all the familiar, favorite dishes. The service is so-so, but may be more from communication difficulties than rudeness, and is a minor drawback in light of the rest. This is Chinese food of the highest order, and we are very glad to have found it!
Accessible Buford Highway restaurant attracts omnivores and vegetarians alike with its large menu and wildly popular dim sum. – The Scene
One of the less intimidating restaurants on Buford Highway, Canton House packs in couples and families for authentic Chinese cuisine. Inside, a flaming neon pictograph presides over rows of black lacquer chairs. The spacious, open dining room sports teal walls and pink tablecloths offset by bubbling tanks of live seafood and frosted glass decorative partitions. Service is efficient and friendly, and there's little or no language barrier.
The large menu features Americanized Chinese dishes, along with a strong selection of more authentic offerings. Look for pan-fried pot stickers with minced pork and scallions or crab meat with snow pea leaves, which includes generous portions of delicate greens and flavorful sauce. Pan-fried Cantonese noodles with beef and vegetables are flavorful, but lack sufficient crispiness. Best bets for vegetarians: savory spinach with garlic sauce and a particularly good Buddha's delight enhanced with wood ear mushrooms. Dim sum, served daily, is a big hit.
Great dim sum – It is certainly not as good as dim sum places in D.C or Vancouver or San Francisco or Singapore but it comes as close as you might get in the Southeast.
They offer a good variety of Chinese tea and if you know what kind to order, it comes pretty close to what I am used to in Singapore, where I grew up.
It has a decent variety although most of it have about the same taste. If you don't like seafood, you won't like dim sum. Almost every dish is a shrimp dish.
They have good spare ribs, custard tart, dumplings. You will need to be there early - right when they open to get the freshest foods.
Authentic Dim Sum – I won't go so far as to say it is the best Dim Sum, but it is authentic and exactly what you are looking for when in search of Dim Sum. They have plenty of Variety at the Canton House but most of this (as always) taste very close to each other. I strongly recommend the spring rolls. They were some of the best I have had.
Best Dim Sum around, especially Atlanta – I have been around and have eaten Dim Sum in a lot of places including Washington DC, Portland, San Francisco, etc. Canton House holds its own against any of them and is the singular best Dim Sum retaurant in Atlanta. I have beed for dinner too, which is also very good, but you can't beat Dim Sum at 10:30 am on a Saturday (arrive early, or wait in line). It is loud, service is a little rude at times, but this is a Chinese restaurant, so get over it and enjoy the food!
