This BYOB location offers a variety of "asian fusion" options from sushi to thai food. Keep in mind that they do not serve alcohol there, but there is a SAQ just below if you're able to sneak in before it closes

We had dinner at Calao while on holiday in Quebec City, Fusion dishes where excellent, service was friendly and helpful and you can bring your own wine which is convenient because the restaurant is right beside the saq. I would definantly eat here again.

We took a reservation for 8, they told us over the phone that they had a reservation at 8PM. It's okay no problem, we will manage to eat our food in 3 hours...

When we arrived the waitress gave us the menu and then came back few second after. We haven't had the time to take a look at the menu - at all. She told us again, in a very rude way, that we need to order now because we have to get out by 8PM and that she doesn't want the kitchen to have a rush. We didn't felt welcome at all. We thought about leaving but as we were there it couldn't be worst.

And that was wrong. The food was not the best. Not disgusting, just. Okay. Nowhere the price we paid for it. They have korean BBQ but we need to reserve that particular place and it's only for 4 people, when they feel like it.... Okay, then you shouldn't put on the menu that you have korean BBQ then...

The busgirl was really friendly. Thanks to her we had a nice memory of the place. Otherwise, it's a no-no.

Go somewhere else.

Their menu is one of a kind but I prefer to get one of the classics. They're Cashew dish is very good and I would recommend this to all who'd like to try something new or love Asian food. I go at least once a year and I'm never disappointed. I also like the fact that this place is a Bring-Your-Own-Wine restaurant so you could choose your own wine to pair with their food. I appreciate that they have staff that speak English very well and that they have English menus available. They also have free underground parking. This place is chic. A must-try!
