Best gig in town

If you've been traveling Newfoundland for a while and starting to wonder if the vegetable is an endangered species, then this is an oasis in a deep fried desert! Good standard Canadian Chinese food. All the expected meat and veg dishes done well. Friendly service.

Very tasty chicken lo mein and fried rice. Won ton soup good too with the tasty broth. Cantonese food. Good for Deer Lake. So Gai (fried chicken tenders) with gravy did not enjoy because soggy with gravy. Recommend if you have an urge for Chinese food.

Your order comes to your table within 5-10 minutes from ordering! Great taste, everytime! We usually always order the specials that are on a sign on each table. Lots of food for the price. Decor is on the "old" side of things.

Have eaten at Canton on several occasions and have never had to wait very long for food. Our meals have always been piping hot, tasty, and service is always friendly. You get a lot of food for the price, and I normally leave with some leftovers. No complaints here.

The Sweet and Sour Chicken Balls were mostly batter. The Kung Pao Chicken contained no Pow and very little chicken. The Egg Foo Yong was bland. The Chicken... More

We went to this place after a week of fried fish and potatoes. The meals were large, the food good and not at all greasy. Hot and sour soup was on the hot side. Wonton soup fresh and not overly salty. They have a full menu, beyond Chinese. Service was quick and the setting was roomy, not cramped. There aren't... More

Nice little place on the side of the Hwy, wonton soup was fresh made as was the whole meal. Service was quick and very friendly. Large open room with lots of light. Good stop in Deer Lake that's for sure.
