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

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

The key to good dim sum, in my opinion, is freshness and turnover and it just doesn't happen as well on weekdays. The food was fine, but hard to rate above 3 stars. Variety was also a bit lacking, which was understandable.

Comfort and dining is not something you get there. The furniture were old and the wood rotted. The carpet needs a good shampoo job. The whole place needs a deep cleaning. They will not pass the health grade by the cdc. One of the workers sneezed in the "to go" box and handed it to me. I politely declined the... More

Went to Canton House on a Friday night. Was a little busy , but staff was handling it. Dim sum was as good as expected, though didn't have the courage to try the chicken feet. Good egg drop soup, but entree's were disappointing. Did have a good Salt & pepper squid , but everything else was bland. Have had better.... More

Saturday and Sunday only review. Order the sea food chow fun with gravy for the table and pick a few items off the cart. If you are a Newby, stick with any thing made with shrimp. Excellent. Ask for hot mustard, hoisin, and duck sauce on the side. Don't forget to use a little of the hot oil condiment table... More
