Best Asian in Kitchener

We are particular with our food, and this place is definately recommended. Food is always fresh and well presented, served quickly. I love the crispy salt and pepper calimari, the lettuce cups with beef or chicken and the dim sum. Try the steamed beef balls and turnip cake, sticky rice wrapped... read more

Heard amazing things about Cameron and decided to try it out for Saturday night take-out. We were excited to go home and experience good quality Chinese food that was tastefully and elegantly packaged in branded take out-bag. Even the restaurant lobby and dining area looked modern, clean, and impressive. Unfortunately, the quality of the take-out experience didn't live up to... More

I was looking for a good dim sum place in KW area. You can see there are Good and bad reviews for this restaurant on tripadvisor. I still decided to give it a try. Much to my surprise, the dim sum was quite pretty good. During the busy hour, i can tell its not the restaurant where u can not... More

We chose Cameron Chinese at random after an afternoon at Centre in the Square and were not disappointed. The food came quickly and was tasty. There were 7 of us so we ordered a set meal for 2 and a set meal for 5. There was plenty for everyone, including our picky eaters, and we had enough left to take... More

Worst Chinese food I've ever eaten. Had company over and ordered from Cameron's for delivery. Food tasted like it was made four days earlier and we all were sick after wating. I do not recommend this restaurant

Took my in laws for supper on a Sunday evening. As the restaurant isn't very big, it was buzzing and almost full to capacity. The service was efficient and helpful. The food was reasonable for a Chinese restaurant and not too Canadian. Food was a bit pricey compared to Toronto or Mississauga, as expected. Al in all, a reasonable place.... More

Having grown up in Hong Kong and currently living in Richmond BC, I am hard to please when it comes to Chinese restaurants. Cameron is a good one. The Dim Sum selection is perhaps smaller than the best in Richmond, but the quality is more than acceptable. Highlight for me was the very tasty Beef Tripe. The Beef Balls were... More

Some friends from work took me to try this place for lunch. It was amazingly good. All of the food we ordered was amazing. The chicken almond dumplings were excellent as was the egg roll wrapped in a rice noodle. Really some great, affordable food.

This restaurant serves delicious Chinese cuisine. The restaurant was completely renovated a couple of years age and the decor was upgraded to reflect fine dining. It's almost always full, and there is high traffic for "take out". It's great for dining as an individual, a couple, family, with friends or business colleagues. Our family's favourite dishes are Singapore noodles and... More

Very tasty Chinese food! I especially Iike the shrimp dishes. Portion size could be bigger for prices or vice versa. The restaurant looked well kept. I will be going back next time I am in town.
