A good friend of mine showed me this place some time ago. I always love going there, #27 on the menu is what I always take. If you think of taking an entree with meal, think twice the portions are very big! Never dispoainted though

My wife's Korean and when travelling, we always strive to find the most authentic and yummi Korean restaurants around the world. LA's Koreatown (e.g. Soot Bull Jeep) sets the standard, we measure to and CHEZ BONG lives up to this standard in every way. Marvelous Galbi, great Banchan and an amazing spicy pork dish will make us return tonight for... More

We had Tansuuk, Bibimpab and soup. They don't give you a lot of side dishes like kimchi, but the food taste excellent, like at home. The dough on tansuuk is so delicious very chewy as I like. It is not an average Korean food. Prices are very cheap. We were going to have second lunch at Pho place, but stumbled... More

I went to Bong's with friends for a b-day. We ordered some korean's popular plates and it was average. My spicy rice cake was a little too spicy but for a small buck, the plate was very big. Fair price for students.

Nestled in China town, below street level. The servers were a young man and an older woman, they were both very friendly. Our dishes were: pajeon, dolsot bibimbap, jjamppong, nakji bokkeum and yukgaejang. Really for being out of the NY/NJ area we thought the food tasted great. It was just what we needed to sate our craving for Korean this... More

Small portion sizes, slow service, shoddy food, overpriced. Pro-tip: don't order a large, just order two smalls - the portion sizes are the same. It is one of the few places in Mtl where you can get dolsot bibimbap, however. Not recommended.

Wondering in chinatown, I started to crave for some food and ended up in Chez Bong. The place was empty, and the young waiter and his mother (my guess) where at my service. Kimchi was great, and so the fried dumplings and the pork stew with kimchi and vegs. The price was pretty reasonable, and the staff was overall friendly.

Chez Bong is located in Chinatown. The Bulgogi serving was small with skimpy side dishes and expensive compared to another Korean restaurant in Montreal I visited.

This was a disappointment. The Bulgogi and Dak Galbi - grilled beef and grilled beef ribs - were overcooked and lacking in tenderness. The same was the case with the grilled chicken which turned up pretty dry and not adequately marinated. However, the side dishes, particularly the savory potato and pickled white horse radish, were good. Service was decent. Located... More
