Had dinner here with friends last night and this DEFINITELY is on our repeat list!! It's located in a nondescript strip mall near WalMart and who knew such a jewel of a restaurant would be hidden here. We only wish we were told about this sooner as it had some of the very best Chinese food we've had...and we eat... More

The staff are very friendly and helpful in choosing a meal from the extensive menu. Looking forward to returning there in the fall as never disappointed... More

We've been here several times, and we've never been disappointed. We go with a group of friends and we all get something different and share it. They have several large round tables with a lazy susan. so it makes it easy to share. My favorite is the Walnut Shrimp, and my husband likes the Egg Foo Yung (4 large servings... More

After searching for the best restaurant in La Quinta, Trip Advisor ratings indicated that the Canton Bistro was top choice. We went to the restaurant to find it fairly empty at 6PM, however within 30 minutes, the restaurant was completely full. The menu is quite large and provides many Asian choices. We ordered four dishes, but after some discussion with... More

We have dined here before and had good experiences overall. Tonight saw the food quality good, but the service bad. Problem with the service was that our waiter was also the bartender. He had a full complement of patrons at the bar and thus was unable to come around for table service. To pay our bill we went to the... More

Went with my wife and some friends while visiting Palm Springs. We got there just before the line formed on a Friday evening. Very impressed with the food. We had Kung Pao chicken, Vegetable noodles, egg foo yung and orange chicken as well as green beans in garlic and shared the dishes. Everything was great - you will enjoy it!

The food here is wonderful, keep in mind when you order that the portions are small. It's worth it. The ambience is open with a bar at one end, lots of light. I've been there almost every day this week to try out the menus. Walnut Prawns- a delicate sweet sauce and the prawns are moist Mongolian Beef- sealed just... More

Had dinner recently with friends and I had the orange chicken which was great. We shared 4 entrees and agreed the chicken took the prize. Service was ok, but our server was a little curt. Overall, a good experience and will go again.
