We had a good meal here a few days ago but it wasn't cheap. Most of the main dishes cost more than $25 and this was for pretty basic Chinese food. Most of the wine cost more than $50 a bottle so I decided to take advantage of the "special offer", a Chardonnay for $37, and it came with a... More

Very hot and fresh, Then we moved on to the main dish, chicken and mushrooms and a pork dish full of flavour great taste. We also had a bowl of steamed white rice,... More

Situated in central downtown Montreal, I was so happily surprised by this hidden gem of a restaurant that a friend introduced me to on Saturday evening. Spacious, calm, clean with attentive wait-staff, this resto offers fresh, fabulous Asian food. Mr. Ma is a gracious host (and cook). We enjoyed main course of crispy duck with fresh vegetables. Friday and Saturday... More

My friends and I were looking for a place to have lunch, before heading off to the craft show at Place Bonaventure. Lovely large restaurant with lots of people waiting to get in which we figured was a good sign. Three of us ordered the lunch special and as my other friend was going out for dinner, she ordered soup... More

If you're already in Place Ville-Marie, go to Chinatown instead (Beijing is much better). This place is overpriced and it offers plain food. It is incredibly expensive for what it is. Quite frankly, it is Westernized Chinese food that is presented a little more cleanly than you would typically. But who really cares! It's all about the taste and the... More

It has been a few months since I went but I had been meaning to write about it but do not remember a huge amount about it. HOWEVER I do remember the general tao chicken was simply excellent!!!!

Mr. Ma was recommended by the Concierge at the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth. We were not specifically looking for Chinese food but it was close by and we were told that this was authentic Chinese food and worth a visit. The menu is quite large and offers dishes that sound familiar but the quality and creativity were a pleasant surprise. We... More

But not all things nice as the nursery rhyme might say. The food is not actually bad as in too bad to eat but it is really poor and some dishes rather tasteless. My wife and I opted for a couple of less spicy dishes on our visit in mid September and were served offerings that were loaded with both... More

Last time there was for a friend's birthday and we went for lunch. Despite the fact that it was packed, they found us a decent table and were very attentive throughout the meal. Of course, the food was delicious (as always). I highly recommend it!
