Went here based on hotel clerk recommendation. Yuck! Place is filthy! The waitress was sweeping the carpet. Tons of food on the floor. Tabletop was sticky. Buffet was so so. Greasy. The skewered chicken was good. No fresh food brought to the buffet the entire time I was there (and I brought in tourist brochures to read). Won't return.

Ordered take out after shopping in Havre. The Chow Mein was basically soggy spaghetti with a few overcooked wilted vegetables and no flavoring. It was of a mushy consistency. Not Chow Mein at all! Also ordered egg foo yung which was a thick dry patty that didn't seem like it was even made with eggs as it was like a... More

I don't usually like to write a negative review but in this case I had to. The food on the menu is high priced. The quality is poor. I had the buffet. The food was tepid and poorly cooked. The place was very dirty. The table I sat at was literally sticky. The spoon I got for the egg drop... More

I did not know you could ruin Chinese food. Looked at the buffet and decided to order from the menu. The potstickers were decent enough but the Cashew Chicken and Kung Pao chicken were inedible. I think the meat and vegetables were steamed and dumped on plate. Tasteless with no sauce.

The buffet is much improved and I really like their "combo" menu. I choose this place over the Chinese buffet in the mall.

This was our last meal in Havre. High prices and mediocre food left us wondering about the restaurant scene in Havre. Clearly there's a need for better restaurants that offer some value. We spent at least $25 on each meal out (except a free meal at Subway), and got less quality and smaller portions than we would have in Helena,... More

I take no pleasure in writing such a review, but the Canton Chinese Restaurant is possibly the worst place I have ever eaten. I like Chinese food as it is usually quite a healthy option, but not here. The restaurant offers a buffet option at around $11.50, but when I looked into the salad bar, the lettuce was so old,...

We tried the buffet on our first visit. I wasn't very happy with the selection vs the price. I think it was $11.99 per person. But we were really hungry for Chineseish food :) the atmosphere was pretty bad just run down and out dated. We will be back but I think we will order off the menu next time!... More

The ethnic Cantonese food at Canton's Chinese Restaurant is very good. I prefer getting take out and picking it up as the restaurant hasn't updated it's seating area for years. They have a buffet for the lunchtime crowd with exactly the same kinds of food that's been there for years. Always plentiful so the hearty eater can get filled up.... More

The food here was overpriced and tasted horrible. We had the buffet and it was a terrible decision. There was absolutely no selection and what they did have tasted either completely bland or just wrong. I would not come here again.
