When I am downtown attending a show at Moscone Center I like to walk two blocks to get to the Canton Seafood and Dim Sum House. I usually go around 1:00 pm and they still have my favorite baked pork buns and steamed shrimp dumplings....More

The restaurant was empty, so I should have been warned. Décor is very worn. Prices are reasonable, and I tried 3 of the dim sum plates, but I didn't like any of them. The dumplings were too thick and dense.

This was a big clean restaurant that was open at 10:00am Sunday. We really enjoyed our various dishes of dim sum. Our two favorites where the Thai chicken with lettuce wrap (healthy & fresh) and the deep fried shrimp rolls!! The one I wouldn’t order...More

We ate there at lunch on a Saturday, and the place was busy. Granted the two of us ate a lot, but I was surprised the bill was $60 with no booze. Nice variety of dim sum brought by your table.

The soup was great and the main course was exactly to order. The server was very helpful. This is a real Chinese restaurant.

I did not expect to have dim sum on a Sunday night. There were plenty of vegetables options. They were on the salty side for me, but absolutely delicious delights. This location is right by the convention center and SF museum of art, really convenient....More

The servers were slow to bring the dim sum and the variety of dim sum, though tasty, was limited. The shrimp dishes were the best. The noodle order was small in size.

Went here to taste some West Coast DimSum and we found this restaurant. The host was very attentive and pleasant. The dim sum menu lacked selections to my taste. Some of selections were unavailable. What we did order was good.
