Our waitress was wonderful and the rest of the staff were very friendly. Sadly, that could not make up for the poor quality of our food. My chicken with vegetables in brown sauce was quite bland, and the sweet and sour shrimps were doughy.

We love this place. Fast service in pretty room. Nice and clean. Lots of choices--I've had all of their shrimp dinners, I think! Liked them all. Their mixed fried rice has the tenderest beef and chicken. Delectable. Healthy portions insure tomorrow's lunch.

Canton Bistro is a great Chinese Restaurant. The decor is much more upscale than most similar restaurants and the food is excellent. No reservations for parties less than six, but the wait is never very long. We will be back!
