went there for supper. Got seated right away but it took a really long time for the server to come see us, they actually served people who arrived long after us. The food was delicious and priced accordingly but we hebert received one of our orders. The place is clean and nicely renovated.

A good place to visit if you are in the Chinatown section. We enjoyed a couple of dishes of: Shrimp and Grilled chicken with rice AND Vermicelli with Grilled Chicken. Both dishes were tasty and had a good presentation. Service was OK. Atmosphere was pleasant. Free WIFI available.

We had two starters, both very nice. The Grilled Chicken Spring Roll was pretty nice and the Fried Wontons were also good. Served with delicate sauces. Both our main dishes were very tasty: Ginger Chicken with rice and Vermicelli with Beef and Pork. Not top cuisine, but for the price it was a really good deal. Really a nice restaurant... More

I honestly chose this restaurant in Chinatown because of the lovely modern decor. The restaurant looks like it belongs in another area of town. The food was totally average but fresh. The prices are a couple of dollars higher than the other Pho Vietnamese restaurants in Chinatown, but the decor is worth it. Menu is not very big, service was... More

The atmosphere is great, until you try to get your waiter's attention (and we visited after lunch hours, there were hardly any people there). The food was subpar, especially given the number of other good restaurants in the area. The flavors were off, and it didn't taste as fresh as I expect from Vietnamese cuisine.

Had lunch here and the food was good; the usual Vietnamese. What sets this place apart is the atmosphere. Most of the pho restaurants in Chinatown are the general "pho places," with formica top tables and hard chairs. This restaurant had nice decor, attractive art work, comfy chairs and well spaced tables. The atmosphere and decor are a couple of... More

On a hot summer day, one can find Montreal's China Town sweltering and its restaurants hot and sticky. This place however, is updatedvery modern decor, and nicely airconditioned with plenty of seating. A welcome relief after a day of walking around Montreal. Its menu is pretty expansive and one can find something regardless of whether you like Vietnamese cuisine or... More

We went back to chinatown to have pho for dinner. We've been to Vietnam and eat Pho at least weekly, sometimes daily. I had the roasted chicken pho and my friend had the well cooked beef pho. Big mistake for her. She couldn't eat the beef as it was seriously fatty. Mine was good in the mode of chinese noodle... More

Wife, our 2yr old and I had a wonderful pre-game dinner here. We were greeted with a nice warm tea as we sat down. The waiter helped us pick a few new dishes to try and were treated really well. The chicken mango salad was very fresh, flavourful and had a nice spicey kick to it. The shrimp spring rolls... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Bakeries, markets, restaurants, and buffets crowd the brightly graffitied streets of Chinatown, the city's aromatic destination for pan-Asian cuisine. Distinguished at its entry points by towering vermillion paifang gates, the compact neighbourhood acts as a focal point for the Chinese community, hectic with educational facilities, cultural centres, acupuncturists, and foreign-language newspapers. Especially vibrant in the warmer months, when the sweet smell of dragon beard candy along the pedestrian walks of Rue de la Gauchetière signal the beginning of the outdoor street fair season, Chinatown is a treasure hunter's dream, with enough knickknack and curiosity shops to tempt even the pickiest shoppers. The convivial vibe picks up after dark, when the area's active nightlife offers evening crowds their choice of drink, dance, and midnight snacks of pho or oysters. Chinatown's mix of new and old, with herbal remedies being sold alongside pop-culture DVDs, gives the area its own animated brand of moxie.
