We were part of a large group for dinner and I am glad we were. The quality of the well prepared dishes, staff, and service are top notch. We sampled all their regional foods and each dish was wonderful. It is worth the 1 hour drive each way to eat here. I will return again.

Being extremely picky about food, I would say that Cameron's dim sum wins my vote every time; hands down. The line-up on the weekends is proof that it's a favourite for many. It's difficult to find a restaurant which serves decent dim sum, so it's nice to know that there's a venue close to home. My family and I have... More

Cameron's Chinese has been around for 20+ years and although I don't find it extraordinary it is a decent place to get a quick fix. The food is pretty authentic and the dining room is tasteful . I recommend if your in the area but I honestly wouldn't go out of my way to go there. Lunches can get tricky... More

Having eaten Dim Sum all over the world it is a real treat to have authentic, freshly prepared to order Dim Sum in Kitchener. I am not a fan of the 'carts' that are pushed around as your selection is never more than room temp. Having your choice(s) cooked to order and arriving piping hot is a real treat. Defo... More

Went to the Cameron for lunch today and we had 5 items from the Dim Sum menu. Had not been there for several years and it was very good.Our first impression in going to any restaurant is based on how clean are the windows, the inside particularly the floor and is it getting tired looking.None of this was a problem....

I went with a good friend of mine along with my brother, my daughter and her husband to try the delights of this restaurant. We were not disappointed. We went early on a Monday night and it was not crowded at all. The service is quick and very professional. Our waitress was friendly and helped us with choosing our meal.... More

Dim Sum at this place is good, overpriced like the rest of the menu though. There are not many good Chinese Restaurants in Kitchener, so they have a monopoly on the market here. We need some new restaurants and talent in this area. NOW the beef was NOT FRESH, it was terrible, it tasted old on the take out... COME... More

Humm Service traditional with no redeeming qualities. Regular menu, traditional and boring. Service... Ok, but won't be back. $40 no booze pp... More

This place has the best Dim Sum on the Planet, period!! Every thing they make is hot and fresh and delicious. Been here over 10 times and have yet to have anything less than perfect. You have to try the Hot and Sour soup to start as well. To die for! This is the best of the best!!

This restaurant was unknown to me until a friend suggested it. When I looked at the menu I thought that this was another so called 'chinese' cuisine with a definite North American twist to it. Surprise! it did present the North American touch but with enough of authentic chinese to make it very good. A place worth visiting again.
