Canton comeback: Downtown eatery to re-open

-A A +A


Canton Chinese Restaurant in downtown Galax is reopening after the owners closed four months ago to help the family-owned Canton restaurant in Radford.
“This has been our home for 18 years,” said Priscilla Kuang, who owns the restaurant with her husband, Jian Kuang. “We missed it here and decided to come back home.”
Over the past four months, the Kuangs were helping out at the Radford restaurant owned by Jian’s brother.
“We had a lot of friends and customers that came to Radford to see us,” said Priscilla.
The Kuangs moved from Radford to Galax and bought the former Peking Palace restaurant on South Main Street when Jian worked for the owner there.
Jian also opened restaurants in Blacksburg and Rocky Mount.
After making a few changes to the menu and adding a few specials, the Kuangs reopened last Thursday.
Hours are Monday-Thursday, 11 a.m.-9 p.m.; Friday, 11 a.m.-10 p.m.; Saturday, 11:30 a.m.-10 p.m.; and Sunday, noon-9 p.m.
Canton is located at 114 S. Main St. in Galax. For more information, call (276) 236-7288.
