As my partner is Indonesian and we often eat Indonesian/Malaysian food, it was with great excitement that we discovered that on Sunday nights, the Nouveau Palais serves 'Malaysian' food. But what a HUGE disappointment from the very first bite. The Gado-Gado was tasteless and the fish curry (supposedly Thai) was completely without nuance and simply hot, VERY hot. The fished... More

Open for as long as I can remember, this diner has never changed its decoration which is a plus IMO. It' now become trendy, but the food is relatively cheap and very tasty. We got the mac and cheese and the crabcake as apetizers and we were all very pleased. But the real treat was the burger. Excellent brioche bun... More

Great expectations from this neighborhood diner and unfortunately left very disappointed. Went solo to experience their Valentine's Day Sausage Specials for my first visit and will NOT be returning anytime soon! Both price and service were unacceptable, as I tried their sausage "platter", not once but twice(!) just to make sure, and did not feel I got my money's value.... More

Been here for both brunch and dinner and have been disappointed on both occasions. The dishes appear cheap (around $7 for brunch and about $15 for main course dinner) but in fact they are pretty small so you need to add sides or go for a full 3 courses for dinner. Taste wise, the flavours are pretty average which makes... More

You have to know what to order: yes, as noted below, their take on a matzah ball soup is pretty awful. It wouldn't pass muster at my family's seder, I can tell you that. On the other hand, their hamburgers are justifiably lauded, their fried chicken good (ask for their sweet sauce on the side, not drizzled, as it tends... More

I you like overly sweet and oily this is the place for you. I would not go back. The portions are small and the sweetness factor of the kormas and the butter chicken were enough to give my sweettooth a headache. The shirmp bhoona and the eggplant bhaji were good but the rest was not.

Nouveau Palais is our Montreal "go to"Restaurant. Had our most recent meal tuesday June 11 for my daughters graduation from University. As usual, the staff was very welcoming, the space is very casual, and the customers cover every demographic. Food is always solid, some highlights were the Spaetzle with Ramps, Pea's and Cheese, the mussels were so fresh, clean, and... More

We went through a lot to try out this recommendation by Top Chef's Gail Simmons on our last might in MTL. What a letdown. :(( The staff was very nice and welcoming, the menu appeared interesting and they were nice to my kid. The matzo ball soup was not good, burgers were mediocre, fries & spaetzle were good. Not worth... More

Well here it is - Chef Gita Seaton has reinvented home cooking - mac and cheese, stew, soup that warms the soul and the tummy, burger and fries just the way you want them - went on a Tuesday... More
