Our first visit there. Reading reviews of 2015 it seems they have moved location. Current place is clean and spacious though tables are still pretty tight. Chef is Afghan so don’t expect authentic Lahori taste. Good enough for Halal Pakistani taste though. Our server was...More

We went to this restaurant after reading online reviews. Food was not prepared as per indian/pakistanis taste buds. The only spices you can taste was salt and paper. I would not recommend this to anyone who love the aromas of indian/paistani food.

Great service, staff very helpful, attentive and professional. The garlic naan, biryani rice, veal karahi, eggplant and tandoori chicken all perfectly prepared and nicely seasoned. 786 Halal will be a regular stop when visiting Montreal !

We know most South Asian restaurants in Montreal, and 786 Halal is among our top 3. The food is spicy, not too greasy, they have specialties such as Lahore fish and pumpkin curry, and the staff is always very helpful and friendly. A must!

You might almost miss this non-descript Pakistani restaurant on Jean Talon. The entrance is a single narrow down sandwiched between two larger shop fronts. Once inside the setting is simple, and the food is a festival of flavours. The servers have a great sense of...More

incorporated into the landscape. With prominent Greek
