Good dim sum

I get together with a group of people every 6 weeks or so to go out for brunch, and most times we go for dim sum. We'd not been to Canton House in over a year, so we decided to return. A group of 6 of us arrived at 11:30 and were seated immediately. The food we like came out... read more

When something is good you want to share it. It has been nine months since my last rave review and I have been back at least a dozen times. I just want to tell folks that it is the best dim sum in Atlanta. Try it...you will like it.

I love Dim Sum, and this place offers it all. Even my wife who doesn't particularly care for Dim Sum loved it. Get here early though (especially on weekends) this place gets crowded fast. Among my favorites were the shrimp wrapped in tofu skin, the honeycomb tripe, and the pork and shrimp dumplings. Reasonably priced and good quality.

We tried this Dim Sum house last Sunday. This compared favorable to a similar place in Hong Kong. The dumplings were excellent. The variety was very good and the service was wonderful. The price was reasonable. We will return again.

Whenever we're in Atlanta, we usually try to have dim sum at Canton House. It is a very busy place and full of Chinese people; they know good Chinese food. Dim sum is fun for Sunday brunch because ladies with steaming carts come around the dining room with various small dishes for guests to try. There is a lot of... More

A very busy dimsum place in Atlanta just across CDC. Always freshly made. This is my nth time to be here. Siomai and spare ribs are always a hit...no to mention the Congee!

Cam does a great job providing the best Dim Sum in Atlanta. Saturday and Sunday mornings are the best time to try the Restaurant. All of the Dim Sum is great! The service is also very good. They have a lot of wedding going on so check with them prior to taking the drive. Sometimes during wedding they serve dinner... More

You will find a better place for Chinese dim-sum than here,their shrimp dim-sum probably is the worst we have ever ate any where,their chicken feet delicacy also bad,other than these two ,I guess they are fine.The server are very casual and may be a little over than professional.

My wife and I went for dim sum today at our favorite place. The dim sum is absolutely fantastic. It is fresh, tasty, not greasy and out of this world. If you like dim sum or just regular Chinese food, look no further. We have to say for desert you must get the egg custard tarts and the sesame balls.... More

I am not an expert in Dim Sum, however, i am very aware if a place is dirty. As i walked to the table my shoes we sticking to the carpet and I was disgusted. I worry that if they are comfortable with me seeing their filthy dining room, what is behind the kitchen doors? The food was below average,... More
