Went for the first time with asian friends and they did all the ordering. When you see lots of asians in a asian restaurant, you know its good food. Not expensive and very busy place.

I always come for lunch because I love the no 7; beef chowmein. For $$5.95 or $6.95 you get: a pot of tea, a soup, a bowl of rice, a veggie spring roll, the beef chowmein (crispy noodles) and a fortune cookie. Now I still don't understand why they serve a bowl of rice with a big plate of noodles....... More

We were four friends sharing four dishes at Mon Shing: Chinese broccoli with mushrooms, veggies and chow mein, sesame chicken and tofu with veggies. The food was nicely prepared and the portions were good for sharing. The chicken was served several minutes before the rest of the dishes, which bothered one of us. Our waiter, Biao, was friendly and helpful.... More

Lunch started with choice of soup. It came with a small spring roll and white rice. The prices were very reasonable. However, some entrees were mostly noodles and very little meat. Service was poor. The waitress acted as if she was doing us a favor by waiting on us. This was recommended by the tour guide. I do not recommend... More

Chinese food is one of my favourites. This is just on your right on Rue de la Gaucheteriere, only a few steps into China Town. The restaurant had a lot room and was not overly crowded. I was there with my dear wife. We enjoyed a Chef Special combo A. This was made up of 5 or 6 dishes including... More

Hot & sour soup offers little more than hot flakes and sour taste (**), egg roll is oozing with cooking oil and served without sauce (*), the sauce for the General Tao is very good (****) but the chicken is almost non existing (**); service is below average and price as well. Will not go back.

Some of the best authentic Chinese food I have even eaten (highly recommend the fried squid. It was the best i have ever had). Service was fast and friendly. Only negative was the noise level. Would highly recommend eating here.

We wandered up and down Chinatown in Montreal, before choosing this restaurant, and chose it because several Chinese people were eating there. BIG MISTAKE! We were seated in the centre of the restaurant, as was another non-Chinese couple. My husband's 'chicken' meal was all skin, although my prawns were prawns, but in a peculiar jelly and obviously reheated - just.... More

The restaurant is not some larger Chinese food franchise and doesn't assume to be that. The place was busy around 7pm and we enjoyed our stay there, amidst locals (Francophone and Chinese-Canadian). There were a variety of foods being served that were hot and being devoured by their guests, including ourselves.The food we ordered (Shanghai noodles and Lemon chicken) were... More
