We have been eating at the Canton Inn for many years and the service has never diminished. Yemi and his family hold a high standard of excellence for all employees and show that openly to all customers. Great food and always a personal greeting, what else could you want in a "hometown" restaurant?

This is a friendly family owned and operated Chinese Restaurant in North Park in Evansville. This establishment has many options on the buffet and they have a cook to order menu if you prefer, but I don't understand why. There is also the option of call ahead for carryout that you can pick up at the drive thru window.

Went for the first time after reading about it in Sunday paper that it was voted one of the top spots to go to. The price of the buffet was average(about $8), and ordered a water for my drink(for the limited food options drinks should be included in that price). The food on the buffet was hot and tasted okay.... More

The owners of this place are wonderful and personable. The food is mediocre/average for a typical Chinese buffet. I love Chinese food and normally stay away from buffets where everything tends to taste the same. Now I remember why.

Great food, but I do wish the buffet had more hours. We got there as the buffet was closing and had to order off the menu. But food was great.

Love the staff and food. Yemi is hands down one of the best hometown restaurant owners around. The staff always goes out of their way to insure everything is to your satisfaction. If we don't go once a week we feel like we have missed out.

It had been a bit in between visits.It's just as I remembered " just ok". The food was average, but the staff was very friendly. If your in the area its worth a stop, but don't go out of you way.

Always Fresh food on the buffet! Have never been disappointed. The food is some of the most satisfying that you'll find. This is not a mega buffet, but there is more than enough to fill up with. The Owners are onsite and making sure everyone and everything is right.

Good Chinese buffet. The server was quick with beverages (no alcohol) and brought us a menu. We walked over to check out the buffet and everything looked fresh so that was what we chose instead of of the menu. It was a good choice because almost everything tasted very good, I love crab rangoon and they did not let me... More
