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.More

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.More

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.More

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.More

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!More

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!More

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.More

Was very impressed with the quality of our meals. Needed food during a family emergency. No one was very hungry, but our appetites were back, after trying their tasty food. I would highly recommend.

We had the General Tsao's Chicken, Beef Chow Mein, and Pork Fried Rice. Both entrees were fantastic while the rice was simply what you'd typically expect. The service was very prompt and friendly, and a Spanish speaking employee was available if that was what you...preferred when we went. If you are in the mood for Chinese, would definitely check this place out.More

I doubt there are many or that they even really would be aware of it so just to be sure I would avoid eating there if you are sensitive to gluten.

There is no telling what is in pre-prepared foods like egg rolls. Most places have stopped using MSG but they could use a variant. I would call first and ask them. z 4042558000
