This is a great and yet unassuming restaurant. Born and raised in South America, I am well-acquainted with Cantone-Chinese cooking. This restaurant uses very fresh vegetables, this is the first thing I noticed since most Chinese restaurants where I live use a combination of frozen and canned vegetables that I find repulsive. I asked for the shrimp with snow peas. The shrimp were cooked to perfection and were so large that I had to cut them in two pieces. The servers were friendly and attentive. I live in Birmingham, AL and wish we had a Cantonese restaurant of this quality.

Had BBQ ribs, which were really riblets - they had no taste and were very tough. Pork fried rice was tasteless and again the pork was so tough. Garbage for expensive food.

Not sure if this is supposed to be a Yelp-ish review, but as somebody that was visiting Atlanta for a few days, ending the trip by visiting here for Chinese food was perfect after not finding enjoyable Chinese food in Atlanta. Staples like beef chow fun were great, with the taste and aroma of expert cooking on a wok. The pea greens were delicious and tender, and a pork fillet dish that I'm not familiar with was crispy and flavorful. Portions were great for four of us, and service was fast. We got seated just before the dinner rush, and the place was packed by the time we were leaving, with people waiting.

They advertisemthat they are comparable to Happy Valley and BBQ corner. This is false, the Canton Cooks might be comparable to a stripmall fried rice emporium - at best

Dont eat here!!!! After ordering we were presented with our bill before the soup even arrived. Although no one else in the restaurant was given their bill until their meal was complete, I asked our server ( who didn’t speak English) then the manager why we were required to pay. He screamed at us that we could pay or leave. When I tried to ask why we had to prepay again he screamed at us to leave or he was calling the police. It was extremely embarrassing and mortifying to both me and to my 83 year old mother. We left and won’t return. Needless to say, if you are visiting Marietta or the greater Atlanta area find another Chinese restaurant. There are plenty of good ones out there. PS I still don’t know why we were kicked out.

Not a good Chinese restaurant. Food is substandard and owner is rude and deceitful. Restaurant is old and dirty. This restaurant has looked the same way for 18 years. Owner will not invest in the upkeep of the restaurant but will always try to cheat you and pretend to be ignorant. Be warned,

Canton Cooks in Atanta/ Sandy Springs, is a casual Chinese restaurant with a loyal following. Their menu features a wide variety of classic Chinese dishes, perfect for meat eaters and vegetarians. I ordered their Moo Shu Chicken. A dish made up of shredded chicken an assorted vegetables, which are rolled in a thin pancake along with hoisin sauce. My server mentioned I would need to roll the pancakes myself. No problem I said, I know the technique. Something I was taught many years ago. This dish didn't disappoint. Very tasty. Service was friendly. While the pries have gone up since I was last here, like everything else they were still affordable. If you're looking for good Chinese food, give Canton Cooks a try.

For several years I knew about this place, we came to spend a great dinner time, unfortunately at the point of paying for my guests, I have discovered that they were overcharging me extra for: restaurant service, 25% tip included, fee for the restaurant...over $87 US dollars were added, I was able to calculate and demand to speak with the manager(whole receipt is written in Chinese so you don’t know), she played like embarrassed and asked me to keep it quiet down and offered me a “discount” Like if I were demanding for it. I told her to be more honest and fair to the clientele...please before you pay it, add it up and you will see that there is an outrageous abusive amount and because you don’t know, you leave a good tip at table too.

I had the spicy garlic shrimp. It was pretty good. It would have been a little better with a little less sugar. My girlfriend had the egg foo young and the portion was so huge she can only eat half. I definitely would return to this place.

We drive from Roswell to Sandy Springs to eat at this restaurant. It is usually pretty busy (packed on holidays like Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New years day). Food is always great, service is quick and efficient, and their health score ratings are typically A's. Recommend Canton Cooks highly. Located near Roswell Rd and Hammond Dr.

We left our traditional Christmas eve Chinese meal angry and disappointed. After serving us the soup and spring roles, we got 2 of the 4 dishes we ordered after waiting a half hour. Then we sat and our waitress never came back. Every time they came to refill the water we asked where our food was and they said "its coming" every time. But it never came. We would flag down waiters and waitresses and they would give us the canned "its coming" but nothing came, except the check that billed us for everything we did not get.

We'd heard this was the best Chinese, so we had to come here! Food is wonderful, and the patrons are mostly regulars who act like they are at home with family, Servers seem to know most everyone -welcoming atmosphere! Loved it! Wish we had one in Marietta!

Biggest issue is the chaos in the restaurant and the potential wait times, but the food is consistently good

Canton Cooks sits off of busy Roswell Rd, in a heavy retail area. The interior is rather bland and could use an update. The corridor leading to the restrooms was packed with stuff. At lunch time, it wasn't to busy and I was seated immediately. Although the prices were reasonable, I was expecting a more robust lunch menu. I have to admit, nothing really jumped out at me and I settled for the General Tsao's Chicken, which didn't take long to arrive. I was disappointed with the quality of the chicken, as well as the sauce. Much too sweet. I disliked the dish so much, I ended up leaving a good portion of it. Prices and service were fine. It's been a few years since I last ate here. and I think the quality of he food has slipped. A Disappointing Lunch!

As a local guide I would not recommend you to go there for your health. They REUSE sauce, orange, napkin and other possible items that LOOKS fine. The plates are wiped by one cloth and only wash once or twice a day (Please noted that they use bleach to wipe the plate so on the plate I am not sure how much bleach was left before they put the food on so please think twice about what you are consuming). You would never imagine if the fried rice is from two days ago or not (oh...you will see a bucket on the floor collecting customer's leftover rice and YES your fried rice is from there). Basically, the reason behind it is because the boss of this restaurant is really saving up the expense for bigger buck himself. Good luck and enjoy here.
