We were lucky to have one of their restaurants across from where we were staying (PhayaThai). Lots of dim sum to choose from, though when we got there at the end of lunch hour, they told us that some of our choices were not available anymore. The place was packed and we only had to wait about a minute or... More

We tried eating dumplings here, but they tasted too fat and very monotone. Afterwards we tried a few dumplings on the street, and they were much better. Very uncosy room and staff not over friendly.

A large menu of Chinese food served in a relatively clean and cool environment. The quality is consistently good .Service may suffer during peak times. Our previous visit was in August 2013. A safe haven for a quick and simple dining experience.

Its set in the middle of Chinatown. A whole variety of Dim Sums on offer. The food is good and is well priced. Definitely worth a visit to eat some good Chinese food in a relaxed and clean setting.

The Canton House is located strategically in Chinatown. Easily located. Ordering the food is so simple as the menu has everything in price, English and pictures. We ordered a variety of dimsum and most of them never fail to impress us! Reasonably price with good environment. Will visit again in our next trip to Bangkok!

I love this place. It's located in Terminal 21, a shopping centre in front of Sukhumvit MRT and Asoke BTS. If you want to go somewhere for a cheap, delicious dim sum then go here. Its a clean, efficient, no frills place where you eat and leave. I've had the seabass in chilli and lime, lots of dim sum and... More

We did not try any stirred fried dishes so i can only comment on the dim sum quality. I can only say you get what you pay for. its very cheap so is the quality of... More

I went to this restaurant for lunch before I walked around the Chinatown area. I like the color menu with photos of dim sum, fried noodles and drinks. I basically pointed at the photos to order. Service was efficient. I have ordered 4 dim sum and 2 stir-fried chow fun( rice noodle) dishes. The food all came out relatively fast... More

Visited the Canton House on a Tuesday afternoon for dim sum on the last day of Song Kran (Thai New Year Holiday). We got excited about this place as it was mentioned a few times in TripAdvisor's forums when the subject of good Chinatown dim sum came up. This place is hard to rate because it's almost like having two... More
