I admit, at first I was a little concerned with the light red paint, the numerous fake plants, unlit chandeliers, and faint melody from the godfather in the background, but this place was great. We had several dim sum that were delicious and made to order. The wait staff was friendly and prompt. Reasonably priced.

The seafood is fresh tasting and the little shrimp shu mais and shrimp with cilantro and shrimp with whatever dumplings are so succulent that I wished I could have spent the whole morning there. I would have, and my companions wanted to too, but after an hour of sharing practically everything that the dimsumista brought out, including these ornately decoratively... More

My friend, Walker, took me for lunch at Canton after one morning church service. The meal was fantastic and the service was swift. We ordered too much and had enough to take home!!!

We've been eating here for years and the only complaint would be the random nature of the service. The dim sum is always fresh and excellent. The sticky rice, sesame balls and bbq pork pastries are some of the best. Their pan fried soy noodles are also very good. The best thing is for Sunday dim sum it's very convenient... More

When we first entered we almost left because we were the only customers in the entire place. We were there about 11am and they had opened at 10:30 I think. We had skipped breakfast and were very hungry so we stayed, and we are glad we did. We ordered and soon items started arriving at the table, as did customers... More

Like in Chinatown, without having to walk all the way there, close to Moscone. Was surprised it was not packed for lunch on a Monday, but during conventions, it can be packed and wait is about 10 min.

Years ago i lived in Hong Kong for a couple of years and developed an appreciation for good Dim Sum. On our recent trip to San Francisco, my wife and I decided to try the Canton Seafood and Dum Sum House. We've tried other Dim Sum places in Chinatown and had yet to find a place we both liked. This... More

My wife wanted some Dim Sum and the Canton Seafood and Dim Sum House was just a short walk from our hotel. While the food was good I won't ever go back because the poor service. The restaurant wasn't busy but must have had some special event going on. We waited at the entrance for 10 minutes before anyone came... More

With plans later in the evening (Dodgers/Giants that night), a tremendous urge for Dim Sum and no time to go to Chinatown, I Yelp'd local Dim Sum restaurants near our hotel and found one just a block away. It was fantastic... as good as any I've had in Chinatown and without the hassle of getting there. Perhaps a bit more... More

We ate here at a reception during my husband's meeting. The restaurant looks a bit worn out, but the food was great.
