The decor was nice and looked very clean.The dim sum was mediocre with the exception of the fried spring rolls and I don't think I'll be going back.A creepy crawler crawled across my hand as I was eating my broccoli! Gross! I think I'll continue to be a regular at Hong Kong Harbour.

I went to the Canton House for dim sum on Sunday. The place is great for families and they have a good selection of dim sum. Halfway through the chinese broccoli, I found a mealworm. The waitress was nice and took the broccoli off of my check and the manager apologized. I don't think I'll go back.
I loved this place. This is the type of chinese restaurant that I used to go to as a kid before the times of strip mall fast food chinese places. Everything was freshly prepared form good ingredients, and the carts od dim sum were a real treat. My new favorite chinese restaurant- Excelsior!

A coupon from Entertainment book few years ago was our discovery of this restaurant.
The manager of restaurant is very friendly. He always checks each table and has a good memory of guests. Found out he is from Vietnam and his parents are from Canton, China. We always have hot/good food and never had any disappointments. Portion is pretty big and their price is lower than many restaurants on Buford highway.

They've recently remodelled and it is now an airy, spacious, almost beautiful set of two large rooms, with windows opening to a stretch of green, sparkling chandeliers, thick linen napery, and comfortable seating. A relaxing, comfortable setting -- except for the noisy, wildly popular weekend Dim Sum, when people are hanging from the rafters -- which is fun in its own right. However, they serve Dim Sum everyday, not as spectacular as the weekends, but pretty darn good. It's all about the food, which is terrific, with a varied menu that goes from unusual delicacies to all the familiar, favorite dishes. The service is so-so, but may be more from communication difficulties than rudeness, and is a minor drawback in light of the rest. This is Chinese food of the highest order, and we are very glad to have found it!

It is certainly not as good as dim sum places in D.C or Vancouver or San Francisco or Singapore but it comes as close as you might get in the Southeast.
They offer a good variety of Chinese tea and if you know what kind to order, it comes pretty close to what I am used to in Singapore, where I grew up.
It has a decent variety although most of it have about the same taste. If you don't like seafood, you won't like dim sum. Almost every dish is a shrimp dish.
They have good spare ribs, custard tart, dumplings. You will need to be there early - right when they open to get the freshest foods.
