According to Canton Seafood Restaurant manager He Gong, the Keeaumoku Street eatery seeks out the highest quality produce and meats that it can find to create its Chinese cuisine.

Gong explains that the restaurant prepares its dishes in the traditions of southern China — which he says tends to be milder, less oily and generally healthier.

And to enjoy those dishes, Gong explains, many customers opt to dine family-style, ordering a few dishes and sharing them with the whole group. And speaking of groups, Gong says that Canton encourages parties — birthdays, graduations, whatever your special event may be — and has party menu options to choose from. The restaurant can seat up to 130 guests.


For the month of October, Canton Seafood Restaurant offers an opportunity to taste a couple of its dishes at a discounted price.

First up is Steamed Sea Bass Fillet with Ginger and Green Onions ($10.99 special; $12.99 regular), which features steamed fish topped with the aforementioned garnishes, along with a special sauce created by the chef.

For the rest of the month, you also can get one of Canton Seafood’s most popular dishes, Crispy Gau Gee Mein, for $6.99 ($8.99 regular). The dish features crispy Hong Kong-style noodles topped with a smattering of goods — char siu, shrimp, chicken and vegetables — and gravy. Along with that, it’s got four pieces of pork hash gau gee.
