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

I went there during the festival Montréal en lumière and it was pretty busy inside. I've reserved and arrived there and they forgot to reserve a table for my group... 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

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.

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.
