Great dim sum in Atlanta

The dim sum was served quickly and hot. Good about drink refills too. They have a menu but everyone seems to eat from the dim sum carts. We've been here a few times and live north of Atlanta but make the drive.

great dim sum in Atlanta. Voted best dim sum for quite a few years. My family and I come here every time we go to Atlanta. Excellent dim sum, plenty of seating. Our party of 8 had dim sum for a little over a hundred dollars, including tip. We even had left over food. Service is average, like most dim... More

Dim Sum with a friend. Neither speaks Chinese (or Cantonese??). Enjoyed MOST of the items we ordered, the ones we didn't we just chalked up the $3 spent and din't order them again. It's that simple. Go. Explore new foods. Enjoy yourdself.

We were seated quickly-a party of 12. Then the food started to arrive, pleasant servers with their carts explaining the contents on the carts.The food was very tasty and our beverages were refilled immediately. A good experience will definitely return.

I have been here often and showed up the day before Thanksgiving at 3:30 PM with a craving for Dim Sum.I suggest going Sunday AM for the best wide selection of different plates but even at this odd hour they had a nice cart full of steamed choices: steamed beef ribs and steamed pork ribs with fermented black beans, shu...

We went to this restaurant because the Dim Sum was highly recommended. Well, maybe if you visit there, after they first open in the morning is a good place. The food was sitting in the cart for a while and it was cold and they did not have half the things we wanted to eat. I think to be a... More

We just stopped by Canton House. They didn't offer us a menu and immediately approached us with a food cart (there were several) for ala carte selection. We selected a few items but wanted a full meal. We had to request the menu and then place an order. The final food bill was a bit high - we got nailed... More

We have been searching for a good Chinese restaurant in or around Buckhead for several years and we have found it. The Dim Sum was good but, as was expected, it does not compare to the restaurants in Hong Kong, Vancouver B.C., San Francisco, L.A., etc. For the south it is excellant. The ambience is typical of Chinese Dim Sum... More

Great place for dim sum. But you need to be there early (before 11:30) on weekend if you don't want to wait for a long time for a table. Good variety of dim sums. Other stir-fried rice noodle and rice dishes are pretty decent either. Be aware some of the dim sums are already cold by the time the cart... More
