4 of us went and tried their lunch menu. The price was a bit high and the portions were small. We wanted to try the food first so we ordered 3 dishes. The food was ok. The service from the waiter was terrible. We would not go back again because of this.

The food choice was good. First time that I have seen couch on a menu. The servers were so so. I also recommend the specialty rice and eggplant if someone is vegetarian.

The food is good and the price is ok. It is more suitable for family style sharing. The entrees doesn't come with rice. So you have to order side dish of rice and pay extra which is confusing. Also, I've ordered the vegetarian noodles but they gave me more expensive seafood version. The waiters seems pissed off so I didn't... More

Decent meal at average prices for the food. The beef was a little tough for us. The Chicken tofu hot pot was good and so was the snow pea leaves. Service decent. Has tablecloths. Food is Hong Kong style cooking.

My husband and I dine here at least once a month for the past three years. With so many wonderful Chines restaurants in Queens we still choose this one for our Canton style shrimp and eggs fix and the pan fried noodles with vegetables. The restaurant on Prince street in the heart of Flushing (the China Town of Queens) is... More

I visited this restaurant during my vacation in New York together with my family and friends. Despite the long wait for seating the service was generally quick. The staff treated us well. The food was quite different compared to what I am used to at home. There was a wide variety. I would recommend trying the fried crab. This place... More

My wife and I went to Canton Gourmet Restaurant lately to have dinner. We ordered the food we loved, and they came out very good indeed. Not only were they found to be tasty, good flavored, and piping-hot, their presentation and arrangement were also impressive, so much so that they helped to increase our appetite. Indeed, they also have a... More

The food was good. Unfortunately the waiters weren't as friendly and the restaurant wasn't as clean as I hoped it to be. I love their panfry noodles with seafood and dungeness crab.

We weren't happy with their service so we tipped them a little. the waiter dare told us that we didn't tip them enough. He yelled us don't come back. I don't think we will go back. There are so many nice restaurants in Flushing. I couldn't believe the manager let a waiter yell their customers!
