5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2014 NEW credit card Amex Card Member Review

For 20 years this has been the best restaurant for Dim Sum. Not only do they serve the traditional food on numerous carts but are continuously adding new items for the customer to try. They are quite patient and pleasantly describe dishes that are not familiar. It's los of fun with lots of people but is also pleasant dining alone.

I hear that this is as good as dim sum gets here in Atlanta. The format is fine with push carts and the selection is ok too. They start daily at 10am and for the whole day. The taste and look of the dim sum items are not quite right. It is 80% of the classic but just not quite... More

We went for a later lunch this weekend here. It was my first time, but we went with friends who are regulars. The food did not disappoint. The dim sum was fantastic. We ordered lo mein for our kids and two regular meals to split up. Some of the best Mongolian beef I have ever had. Overall, we were quite... More

Aside from the barbaric cruelty in the way that shark fins are sawed off live animals which are an endangered species, the vast majority of shark fins are illegally obtained! Shame on you for perpetuating the cruel and illegal shark fin trade by serving shark fin soup in your restaurant. Please stop!

No restaurant, no matter how good their food deserves a rating higher than a 1 when shark fin soup is on their menu. The management has been informed of the disastrous impact of shark finning but refuse to be environmentally responsible.

Sharks are being hunted to the brink of extinction and Canton House contributes to that by serving Shark Fin Soup. Please don't eat here until they change that.

Been here many time, enjoy the good Dim Sum food. The food is better than many other Chinese Dim Sum restaurant. My complain is that the waiter staff for Dim Sum has forgot how to serve. They did not come to my table once in the entire time we are there (also other tables near by too) and demand me... More

One of the great city you can find good oriental foods, same as Little Saigon,CA. or Toronto Canada... not much at anywhere else. Ofcourse, our... More

The dim sum here is great and certainly on a par with any restaurant in New York. There is a wide choice, so there is something for everyone. The quality is consistent and the service is excellent. The secret is out, so get there early (they open at 10.00 on Sundays). The restaurant is large but so popular that it's... More

We came here for dim sum. It was great! They were very busy. But we got seated pretty quickly. The dimsum was very good. And the chow fun was delicious! I'm from the DC area and Chinese. So I'm pretty picky about my Chinese food. But I was pretty happy. The service was very good. They were friendly. nicer than... More
