I absolutely LOVE this place. It's tucked away on first street and probably one of Duluth's best kept secrets. Food is amazing, prices are amazing, and the service rocks. Love going here!!!!

I stop here every time I'm in Duluth. Old school, wonderful family restaurant in business since the '70s. Don't let the retro digs scare you when you walk in. This place is legit.

Me and my mother have eaten at the Catonese House a handful of times this past year and in years past. Every time we dine here it does not disappoint. The flavor and quality of the food consistently rates excellent from the fried rice to the egg foo young & schezuan chicken, just to name a few. The service has... More

I ordered a delivery and was advised a $4 delivery fee tacked onto my food bill. That was ok with me but when the older Asian looking driver arrived he claimed he was not given any delivery money so I tipped him another $2..sucker effect). My residence is less than a mile from this restaurant. The food was mediocre with... More

I ordered food for delivery at 5:30 and was told it would take 45 min to one hour. My husband called at 7:15 and it had just left the restaurant. It arrived at 8:00, 1 1/2 hours late. Hungry family not happy!

My favorite Chinese restaurant in Duluth. Always order the sweet and sour chicken, pork fried rice, cream cheese wontons and an egg roll. Never had a bad meal and I've been coming here for at least 20 years.

I've been eating at the Cantonese House for over 40 years, and they have the best egg rolls that I have ever had. My favorite entree is the egg foo young, but I also like the other dishes. The owners are very nice and although the atmosphere is not what a lot of people like; I have never thought that... More

This is a must for us whenever we are in Duluth. The Cantonese House has the best wontons, sweet and sour shrimp, as well as their chicken chop suey and chow mein. Eggrolls are a special treat and the rice is always fluffy. Great tea, excellent portions, and reasonable prices.
