By offering a diverse menu, and a clean, warm atmosphere that invites guests to dine in comfort, Canton Seafood Restaurant represents a must-try culinary destination within the bustling Keeaumoku corridor.

After opening in Chinatown 12 years ago, the restaurant relocated to its current Keeaumoku Street locale in 2011.

Manager He Gong explains that the eatery’s Cantonese cuisine draws influence from the southern region of China, and features healthy preparation techniques, coupled with fresh ingredients.

Gong credits executive chef Sou Keung Wong with crafting and executing the flavorful menu selections, as he incorporates the freshest vegetables and meats into each dish, while also cooking with less oil and salt to create healthier options.

“He brings authentic, healthy items to our menu,” says Gong. “He’s very concerned with the continuity and quality of our food to ensure freshness in the various meats and vegetables. We also offer very affordable prices and feature choices for the entire family.”

As a special scoop for Dining Out readers, diners may enjoy Canton Crispy Chicken (half) for just $4.99 with the purchase of a regularly priced entree. Normally, the succulent chicken is priced at $12.99, so this special offer presents a can’t-miss deal.

As its name suggests, Canton Seafood Restaurant also offers a vast array of lobster, crab, shrimp, clams, oyster and fish dishes, including Sea Bass Fillet with Creamed Corn ($10.99). Gong also recommends Crispy Chicken with Oyster Sauce Cake Noodle ($6.99 special, $9.99 regular).

Lunch specials also are available daily from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and prices range from $5.99 and up.

Canton Seafood Restaurant even offers a diverse catering menu — an ideal option for family parties, work functions or tailgate events. Diners also may reserve the restaurant for parties of up to 140 people. Call 955-3388 for more information and to inquire about special group menus.
