The service was friendly and efficient. The meal was typical Canadian Chinese. We ordered a dinner from the choices proposed.

My family & friends all enjoy the Canton Restaurant as the food is excellent. The food is hot, ready quickly, & delicious. We often choose this chinese food for special occasions such as birthdays, get togethers with friends, family reunions...there's dishes to please everyone.
