2006-01-03 16:33:55 "Cantonese House is decent for their traditional fast food but where they really stand out IMO is on the flip side of the menu. Dim Sum menu items are abundant and with an interesting price range, from $1.00 for Fried Cruellers all the way up $6.95 for Shrimp (or Squid) w/ Salt and Pepper, you can't go wrong.
Dim Sum is popular with the lunch crowd since it's basically a lot of side items that are prepared for the day and, in this case, brought around on a cart ready to eat. Everything is always fresh and you have the option to take it on the go. There is the draw back that sometimes they run out of your favorite items and you have to wait or are just out of luck.
Also if you have time check out the Chinese Dishes menu, more specifically the Beef Chow Fun with XO sauce. It's $10.50 but it's a ton of food and it's really good. I usually get it to go and share with others." —RickUrwin
2007-03-31 16:05:54 The dim sum is the real thing, here - and you CAN order it during the week, avoiding the weekend crowd to boot. Chrysanthemum tea completes the classic dim sum lunch - for me anyway, and I'm spoiled by the super-competitive (read: cheap and ultra-authentic) East-LA (read: zero-glamor, the un-Hollywood) scene. You can choose fall for décor elsewhere, or thumb your nose at dim sum imitations that, um, don't even bother imitating. —ChristineLeo
2007-04-05 13:07:53 Agreed, Christine. Went here for the first time last week, and it brought back memories of Toronto and NYC. It's true that there is a regular dim sum menu, but I find it more fun (and maybe more tempting) to go when there are carts and trays of just about everything being wheeled around in traditional fashion. I look forward to trying their dinner menu. Any more opinions on this? —RochesterGuy
2007-04-06 00:26:51 RocGuy - I love 'em carts, too, in the right place....[snip diatribe]. I've only been once for dinner - do you like hot pots? —ChristineLeo
2007-04-13 09:16:57 If Cantonese House has good hot pot I'm putting myself up for adoption. Now that I think about it, why is there no shabu-shabu at any Japanese restaurant in town? —RochesterGuy
2007-09-22 18:59:24 By far the best Chinese restaurant in town. Great seafood and dim sum. No "gueilo" food here !!! —KevinFalzone
2007-10-13 09:10:28 Once again another great meal. Incredidble dungeness crab with ginger and scallion, lobster casserole, sweet and succelent lamb chops and dau miu. A real treat and all that right here in Rochesterville !!! —KevinFalzone
