We happened to be walking by this restaurant when we decided to walk in. What a great choice we made. High quality Chinese food at a reasonable price. Will definitely be going back.

We had been to Mr. Ma for dinner many years ago and we always remembered the great food we had especially the deep fried duck and we never the chance until recently to return. We went for lunch this time. The restaurant was extremely busy. We did not have a reservation but since we were still fairly early (before 12:00)... More

I came here on a whim, with my family. We were on vacation in Montreal, having no idea how to speak French, or navigate the city. We found Mr. Ma by coincidence. I'll be honest, the service was a bit slow, and prices more expensive than the usual Chinese food I'm used to - BUT the waiter, and all the... More

The menu contains more items you will ever be able to test in your entire life ... Good chineese foods. General TAO is the classic and is very good. Suggestion: have the Green Tea ice cream for desert !

The layout and location (and reputation) makes it seems this place is high end. I have found little places around the downtown core, who offer better quality. Granted we were a group of 30, but I order orange chicken - there was one peel of orange zest. The chicken did not taste like chicken. My fried rice was not fried... More

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
