Disappointing

We arrived on a Tuesday at 1 pm. About 10 tables were already filled when we arrived, and 15 tables were filled by the time we left. Unfortunately, by the time we left, the same two women were still pushing the same 2 carts that had been circulating when we arrived - one of which carried mainly... read more

In town working across the street and decided to have lunch here. Was nervous that we would get done in an hour because a bus had just dropped off a load of people when we walk up. The place was packed, but they seated us fairly quickly. Did not really get much instruction but the Dim Sum cart came by... More

Dim Sum lunch tasted good until we discovered our car that was parked in the restaurant parking lot had been broken into and all our luggage was stolen. Made for a very expensive meal. Watch out for this neighborhood!

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.
