Place was dirty, food was bland, serving utensils filthy. If you are looking for fast basic oriental take-out food that seems to be just reheated frozen entrees then this is the place. If you want quality food and a clean or quiet restaurant then do not go here.

While the good folks at Canton seem to try, the family run business suffers from a lack or organization and cleanliness. Once I ordered a take out order, waited the thirty minutes as directed, showed up to pick up my order. the teenage daughter who appeared to be trying to run things said, "Sorry- we've been very busy." I said, "No problem- I can wait a bit." she replied- "No- we don't have time to make your food." True story!
The food, when you can get it , is adequate but there are better places over in Lexington.

Being a local to the area, I have eaten at Canton on several occasions. And although the food is actually pretty good and the people who run it are extremely nice, the place is DIRTY. Not once, but on two separate occasions I have found a roach in my lo mein. After the first incidence I quickly stopped eating and threw away the remaining food. I kid you not when I say it was several years before I gave them another shot, only to find ANOTHER roach in the same dish again! Needless to say, no matter how good I thought the food to be or how great the lady that owns it is, I will not eat here again. Fool me once, shame on you, foll me twice.....

My wife and I come from the Detroit area where excellent Chinese restaurants are plentiful. However, it has been difficult finding a Chinese restaurant in the Shenandoah Valley that meets that level of quality. Canton exceeds that level. While the atmosphere is not the most elegant, and they would do well to keep the television off, all of their food is excellent. Their egg rolls are crisp, hot and sour soup is very well prepared, and their shrimp, beef, and chicken dishes are all authentic and delicious. I suggest their combination plates which are very reasonably priced, even during dinner time.
