Best Chinese in Kitchener

Ingredients were fresh and masterfully prepared. Spring rolls were excellent and the menu has a wide array of choices.

Some of the menu items were great (especially the seafood, including shrimp!). Others were decent but not as remarkable. Tables are pretty close together and it seems like a popular place for groups / kids so it was a bit loud (but lively!). Overall, a good choice for Chinese and I would go back.

Just discovered this little nugget with our kids recently, and have been back again. The food is excellent, and very plentiful. Priced right as well. Yes, the parking is not so great, but everything else measures up. The interior is nicely done, not over the top, but clean and neat. The servers are dressed smartly, and are quite efficient. No...

Wow. Some of their entree's are the most delicious I've had in a Chinese establishment! The shrimp in hot peppercorn sauce was unbelievable. I can't remember what my spouse ordered...but it was excellent as well. We'll be back for sure.

You know the saying: “In the land of the blind the one-eyed man is king?” Well, that pretty sums up the Cameron restaurant. Here’s the problem. Kitchener-Waterloo is a dreary wasteland for Chinese food lovers. I used to live in two different Chinatowns in Toronto and I chowed down Chinese food all the time. By the standard of my neighbourhood... More

The food is always very good here, both off the regular menu, and off the Dim Sum menu earlier in the day. Service is usually weak and a little unfriendly, but not terrible. Parking is usually a challenge.

Enjoyed the Asian ambiance of the newly decorated restaurant.. Staff was pleasant from the initial greeting to the service and the checkout. Staff was smartly and uniformally attired in black and white. Smiles and pleasant greetings were exhibited throughout the meal. Menu is easily comprehended with individual dinners: servings and combinations. We selected a combination meal and were pleased with... More

We have been getting take out from Cameron Chinese for over 18 yrs. The portions are great. We're always full. It's never a long wait. We have never ate there, which I don't know why not, maybe because we only live a few blocks away and just get it for home. I also really like the containers you get with... More

First of all let me say Chinese food is not my favorite. We wanted to try Dim Sum for the recent Chinese New Year. It is always a chore to pick the right items from a menu, but this is convenient for the wait staff. This was our first visit to Cameron and I was expecting the carts with food... More
