Canton Dim Sum restaurant

Pork hash, shrimp dumplings, custard tarts … is your mouth watering yet? If you’re craving dim sum but don’t want to venture into the hustle and bustle of Chinatown, there is a great new option at Market City Shopping Center in Kaimuki.

Canton Dim Sum restaurant is now open next to T-Mobile, in the space formerly occupied by G. Sushi.

Savvy restaurant owners Gerald and Grace Chen are intent on providing a quality experience in their newest venture at Market City. The Chens have brought in a chef from China’s Guangdon Province to create a special menu that offers Hawaii residents authentic Canton cuisine.

While Canton Dim Sum doesn’t offer cart-style service, you can order dim sum whenever they are open, even for breakfast. Simply place your order at the counter and take your dim sum to go, or have a seat in the dining area. The hours of operation are 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. For takeout orders, call (808) 735-1688.
