We ordered takeout for 6 people. Food choices ranged from soup to egg rolls to extra spicy orange chicken. The food was ready and waiting in 20 minutes as promised. We found the servings to be quite substantial. Food quality was good, especially the lemon chicken. The extra spicy orange chicken was very mild, not hot at all. Prices seemed... More

I have been going here for sometime, usually for their weekday lunch buffet($6.99). It rotates everyday their selection of about 10 different fishes and you always get a choice of three soups and Chinese tea included. For the money, it is one of the best deals in town. The food is good, nothing really special, but fresh and satisfying. The... More

I have been visiting here for over 20+ years. I enjoy the 8+ item lunch buffet 1-3 times per month for many years. The service and food quality is very good

My parents owned a cantonese restaurant for years. The cooking here is almost exactly the same. Good authentic Chinese food. Nice buffet for lunch too

We went here for lunch and will never do so again. There was a Cockroach on our table. The server was also a very nasty and rude individual. There are plenty of better places to eat near here.

Food was ok, had the lunch buffet and the selection was small and fresh. Can't expect too much for 6 bucks. I was overall pleased with my lunch.

I would not recommend this place to anyone! I was craving Chinese food, so I decided to try Canton Restaurant since it had good reviews. I did carry out, as I started to take my first bite i noticed little "maggot like" white bugs in the food that I automatically spit it out. They were in the rice and in... More

I like the chicken teriyaki on a stick and the Singapore noodles. Shrimp egg fu yong is one of my favorite dishes, but not at this location. They are way too big, they are so big that they look unappetizing, disgusting. I have asked them to make smaller patties, but the cook refuses. So, I no longer order them at... More

When we first started eating here, it was good. Then it became pretty bad. The last few deliveries have been great. The food has really improved.

I can say that I have enjoyed this restaurant for 50 years now. It is our "default" restaurant when we can't decide where else to go. That is not a negative thing. Its just that in a city like Annapolis you have so many choices. When you don't have alot of time, or aren't dressed for a fancy evening. Or... More
