The Canton Cafe is a piece of PEI and likely has been visited by just about everyone on the island - well talked about - greatly enjoyed.

We have been enjoying food here for over 30 years and think nothing of driving an hour from another part of our Province to eat here. Our children, who now live in other parts of Canada and have experienced many other Chinese Food restaurants, have to make their visits to PEI complete by dining at the Canton Cafe. Even after...

We were told to check this restaurant out because of the egg rolls. While we were waiting for our meals, a woman came in and ordered 15 to go. Must be good. Well, we weren't disappointed. Located downtown, this is a reasonably priced chinese food restaurant. Order some to go for the road!

The server knew her job and did it pleasantly and well. The price w VERY reasonable. Parking not a problem as we took... More

I love the Canton. They have the best Chinese food in the city. The people are friendly and the food always comes quick and is delicious. In all the years I have gone there, I don't believe I have ever had a bad meal.

My wife and I tried this restaurant for a change of pace from seafood. We each ordered a combo plate. The quality of the food was the same or worse than any other budget Chinese restaurant in any town. That isn't why I felt the need to write the review. What got me was that I ordered a martini which... More

We are here to have a break from seafood. Pretty average or below. Had combination dinners. Wishing I had eaten mussels again. Even the fried rice was tasteless. I don't write bad reviews normally but I feel like you should know.

Always a good meal here and always a packed house after the bars close around town. Authentic chinese food, always fresh and fast service.
