This is my favourite place to get Chinese food. Henry is always welcoming. The restaurant is simple and could use a bit of a reno but it is the food I am after and that is always fabulous. The staff is always friendly and smiling. The food is fresh and quick. I have dealt with Canton for 10 years now... More

I have not been to Campbell River for about 12 years but always remembered the food at Canton’s. I was only in town for two days and made a point of going here for dinner with my friends. I wanted to see if the great food I remembered was still served here and it was. We had a wonderful meal.... More
