We had the pork fried rice, I had to pick out the pork, it tasted Old and hard. They offered to make a fresh one, Really!! That should have never happened. I used to LOVE, this place, but not anymore, SHAME on them for pawning off old food. I WILL NOT BE BACK! That was gross!👎

I used to go to a place in Barstow called the Palm Cafe that had everything included, but then I could't find it once, so tried this place. It was basically the same. I ordered the ground sirloin covered in onions, and it came with a salad, either egg drop or navy bean soup, a roll, french fries (my choice),... More

I took my mom to Canton and while the staff were very friendly, the food was not good. It was flavorless-I've never had to add soy sauce to chow mein for flavor. The sweet and sour had so few pieces as to be barely there and the ones that were there were overcooked and hard. I can't say that I... More

A bit pricey but... More

We went to Cantons on the night of the Barstow Mardi Gras Parade. We had planned on going to an Italian restaurant, but it was closed due to the parade. I have to say, we were all pleasantly surprised. We had the Kung Pao Chicken, Beef Teriyaki and another entree, not sure what the name was. I have to say... More

When I'm in the mood for Chinese, I always get their Sweet and Sour Pork and Jim travels the menu. They also serve excellent American meals. We've been coming here since 1973, as we live in Barstow and often bring out-of-town company.

Read the reviews and was expecting a good meal. Egg rolls Tasted like cooked in dirty fat. Beef teriyaki looked huge but was actually only small as on a rice mountain. Sweet and sour chicken was ok but very chewy chicken. No free refills a bit unfair considering it's not cheap and being refilled from a soda machine.
