“PS Chinese”
Reviewed January 20, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Food is more than acceptable. Waitress had an attitude. For Palm Springs this would be a top pick for Chinese.

“good food in a nice setting”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

We visited at prime time without a reservation and had to wait about 20 minutes. Once seated the service was quick. We found the staff to be very friendly and attentive. The food was very good with a wide selection and many options and the pricing is reasonable. Our party enjoyed the meal and we will certainly be back. As an aside, this restaurant is very nicely decorated which is often not found in Chinese restaurants.

“Great Chinese at a great price”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

I always enjoy dining here, for lunch or dinner. The atmosphere is pleasant, not overcrowded, the staff friendly, the prices very reasonable, and the food excellent. I don't know what makes their combination fried rice so tasty but it is my favorite (combo of shrimp, chicken and beef). One of my favorite appetizers is their pot stickers - YUM!
They have a most reasonable lunch menu with a large selection of their most popular dishes ranging in price from $6.95 - $7.95, and this includes soup and steamed or fried rice. Their dinner menu includes chicken, pork, beef, seafood and vegetarian sections as well as soups, salads, appetizers and house specials. They also offer a full bar.
This is not a fast food takeout joint, this is a comfortable restaurant that brings your food quickly.

“Canton Bistro”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

I went for the first time for lunch. They had a broad menu and a relatively inexpensive lunch menu which we had. The food was good. The ambiance was also good. The service was a bit slow but to be expected as it was not a cafeteria style menu. It was a good value meal and I definitely plan on going back. It was one of the better Chinese restaurants in the area and close to shopping. I would recommend this restaurant.

“This place has gone in the dumpster!”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

We have always loved this restaurant, but we went this weekend and everything had changed. Took forever to get our food, then when it came, my wife bit down and gagged because there was a 2 inch piece of wire in the food. We called the waiter over and showed him, he said "Oh yeah, that if from the brush they clean the Wok with! That was it, like it happened often! So then we called the manager over and he said we are trying to fix that problem but when we get busy, we haven't been able to stop it from happening?? When the waiter came back, I told him the mistake he made was he never even apologized. His answer was, believe it or not, "it never crossed my mind". We told the manager about this, he offered to take half off the bill, which was nice, but too late and not what we wanted him to do. The food was not as good as it used to be, and this behavior was unacceptable. All new people, new ownership, no Chinese presence noticeable. What a shame, it was such a good place. They do not know how to run a restaurant. We will not go back again.
