You won't be disappointed in this family-run ethnic restaurant. Whenever I'm in the mood for Chinese, I head to Canton House. The food is delicious and plentiful. The woman that runs the counter is very welcoming. The fried rice is the best in the region and the egg rolls are very good with a hint of cinnamon. The lunch specials... More

Got takeout from this restaurant for the first time last night. Pleasantly surprised at the quality and portions. Egg rolls, shrimp with lobster sauce were very good. The only issue was that the rice was not cooked enough, somewhat hard Will return.

Canton House is a great Chinese restaurant, one of the best in the area. The food selection is large. Their prices are reasonable. We dined on Beef Fried Rice, Moupo Tofu, and Canton Special House Lo Mein. We spent $26.20. There was enough left over for another day. Service is great and the people are friendly. There is no table... More

One of the best dishes is the wonton soup. I also like the chicken almondine and beef broccoli. They will even deliver and thats what makes this a great place. The have several items on the lunch menu for much less with lots of food.

I'm at the Hampton Inn a few blocks away and it is raining. The Canton House does deliver I hear. Their delivery was prompt, correct, and courteous. The food is so much better than I had imagined. Filled w/ fresh crunchy veggies and exactly what I needed that night. Wished I was staying another night to try something else.

The Canton House has great Chinese food. It is the only good Chinese restaurant (in my opinion) in Munster.

Never disappointed. Carry Out order is always ready within 10 minutes. Always fresh and hot. I like the Chicken & Broccoli. Their white sauce is very good and the chunks of chicken aren't flattened out like at other places. Generous portions too. Their lunch special is my dinner too.

The food is freshly prepared not made ahead. The wonton soup is the best around. They have a nice luncheon menu that is priced very well for the portions of what you get.

Canton House is a simple Chinese restaurant and take out. You have a pretty standard menu. The L5 is Sweet and Sour Pork with an egg roll and pork fried rice. The egg roll is bigger than what I usually find. The portions are large and everything is servied in a take out package, even if you eat in. If... More
