Super value but we've had better

Okay, first of all, I've been to many Chinese restaurants and had a lot of Chinese food being Chinese myself. Therefore I'm a very critical Chinese restaurant reviewer. I thought this place was a fantastic value compared to other restaurants in the area outside of Chinatown. There were 10 of us and... read more

Dropped in for some late night food after the Jazz Fest at this restaurant in Chinatown, that's been there forever. Won't win any awards for decor and the place is looking somewhat tired (especially the washrooms), but the food was quite good indeed. The 4 of us had two different combos for 2 and it was all tasty, though the... More

This is a once a month stop for us,whether it's lunch ,dinner,or a real late nite dinner.Usually is a full house and even waited in line a few times,,,but well worth it.The all day special dinners for two ($30.00) are really worth it and you need to bring the rest home,,,,also full Cantonese and Szechuan menu.Service is fast ,,,stop in...

We picked this restaurant in China town as it had the most Chinese diners in it. The food was excellent, we selected a meal for two which gave us great variety. This is an extremely busy restaurant and very good value. Highly recommended for their ethnic food. My only disappointment was the restrooms. They are not handicapped accessible and are... More

We ate here for lunch. Quite good stuff, but very oily. Good value for money. Good basic food very reasonably priced. It's worth going here.

The wonton soup was absolutely delicious and a must have if you go there. We went here because it was close to the hotel, and the reviews where very positive online as one of the best. The food itself, the meat was soft but only because it was fully drenched in oil. You cant eat this plate unless you have... More

Beside this, the staff was very friendly. We took a combo, for two persons, 30$. We had 5 gorgious and huge plates for 30 $. It's amazing ! I'll go... More

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

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Bakeries, markets, restaurants, and buffets crowd the brightly graffitied streets of Chinatown, the city's aromatic destination for pan-Asian cuisine. Distinguished at its entry points by towering vermillion paifang gates, the compact neighborhood acts as a focal point for the Chinese community, hectic with educational facilities, cultural centers, acupuncturists, and foreign-language newspapers. Especially vibrant in the warmer months, when the sweet smell of dragon beard candy along the pedestrian walks of Rue de la Gauchetière signal the beginning of the outdoor street fair season, Chinatown is a treasure hunter's dream, with enough knickknack and curiosity shops to tempt even the pickiest shoppers. The convivial vibe picks up after dark, when the area's active nightlife offers evening crowds their choice of drink, dance, and midnight snacks of pho or oysters. Chinatown's mix of new and old, with herbal remedies being sold alongside pop-culture DVDs, gives the area its own animated brand of moxie.
