As good as always

Went to revisit the Canton after a several year Campbell River absence.. The food was just as I remembered it. Henry and his crew prepared an excellent meal. it is the standard I judge all Chinese Restaurants by. .

This restaurant is small, and there is a reason the tables were empty. The average food!! The fried rice was great, but the main dishes were average. We ordered the ginger and onion beef (which was ok), sweet and sour pork (terrible) and chicken with almond (deep fried chicken which tasted like fish, with crush almond on top) Service was... More

Last night, our first night visiting in Campbell River with my 91 year old mum from Ottawa, some good friends, who've been coming to the Canton Restaurant for 30 years introduced us to the food here. In a word SUPERB! In my many years (I'm 64), I've had more than my fair share of so-so greasy, or over spiced, or... More

I had their Fat Boy if I remember the name, it's been a while since I been there. It was excellent so yummy. I wish they had take out. The décor is OLD, but you go for the food.

We have eaten here a few times, and have never been disappointed. You get huge portions, piping hot and fresh. The owner, Henry, is always out checking to be sure you're happy, and his staff is great too. As the other reviews have said, try the Fat Boy, and you'll probably have a good portion to take home too..

The other day we stopped in and ate here and sure glad we did, wished we had done it along time ago. Their is so much to choose from on the menu and the portions are huge. We noticed others were...

There is nothing pretentious about the Canton. The menu is not gourmet chinese - pretty straight forward but they will modify to suit your tastes. The prices are very reasonable - eight of us had lunch on Thursday last week for $106 including taxes (no alcohol but soft drinks and green tea) and some took away their extras in containers...

The restuarant itself is in some real need of paint and updates but the food itself is very good
