Mt wife and I eat here on a monthly basis and find that the food is always great. It is always hot and served quickly and efficiently. Most Chinese restaurants that we have visited over the years seem to have a drop in quality after a year or two. This has not been the case here and I strongly recommend it.

We go here often for dim sum. The selection is great, the service friendly and fast. The spicy tofu is so good, we always get extra to take home. Get there early for Sunday dim sum, as it fills up fast.

June is the month of birthdays around here and it's always a challenge to find a "kid friendly" restaurant when the adults want to go out to celebrate a birthday. Make that when they want to eat something other than standard American chain restaurants. Canton Garden is a wonderful hidden jewel in Clayton Park, a suburb of Halifax NS. The food is wonderful from won ton soup with a heavenly broth, BBQ pork slices, bok choy and, super dumplings to the standard dishes and not so standard, like shrimp stuffed eggplant.. We are now 11 with grandparents, kids, and grandkids, so it's usually a challenge to accommodate us, but at Canton Garden we can easily fit around a large round table with a lazy Susan top for all the great dishes. The staff is super attentive and accommodating (they will adjust the dishes to reflect how mild or spicy you'd like your Hot & Sour Soup and dishes like General Tao Chicken). The kids (now 3,5 & 7) love the food, not to mention the two giant fish in a large aquarium.

With or without kids, it's one of the best Chinese Restaurants in town.

I love the dim sum here. It compares favorably to some of my favorite spots in Vancouver and Toronto. I can't understand why that restaurant downtown keeps winning the "Best in Halifax" award because it simply doesn't compare to Canton Gardens.

I've been visiting regularly since 2010, and I've never had a bad experience here! The service is fast and friendly. It's clean and cheery and authentic.

We love chinese food and go out for it at least once a month, and often twice. Canton Garden is our regular spot to go to, and the waitresses all know us and what we like to order. Yes, we go there often. But we do so because the food is really good. Never disappointed by the quality and the taste. You can order the degree of spicyness you prefer. The decor is basic but fine.
