Here's a 2006 restaurant review: "I would like to add the Canton Grill as one of the best Chinese restaurants around. They have been in business for 51 years and they are the absolute best. They are famous for their deep-fried shrimp. My parents went there when they opened, my family goes there, now my children. We recommend it to friends, and guess what they now go there. Word of mouth is a great advertisement – because they deliver what you tell."
