The menu is interesting, but the price expensive and the flavors were a little too sweet for my taste. The fake shrimp was strange. The texture is similar of all fake meats.

Very good cook for creating meat alternatives, a vegi place were you can eat duck, beef, shrimps with no animal tissue in them and you will be fooled. We shared 4 entrees (tapas style) and 2 main course plate my wife and I and we're satisfied. Service was friendly, quite efficient, helpful with the menu. If you are intolerant to... More

I LOVE this place! Great staff and excellent food. It's one of those places that works for even the most hardcore meat eater. The food is elegant, fantastic and so incredibly well spiced and seasoned! See you next year Chu Chai!!!!! Can't wait

Had a craving for Thai food and this place came up rated highly in reviews. I was not disappointed. Spring rolls with peanut sauce to start and then the yellow curry with beef, both of which were amazing. The fake beef had a really nice texture and taste - I'm not a vegetarian but I preferred it to other curries... More

Great vegetarian mock meat food. There is lots of choices of food, the price is a little on the expensive side and portions are good for sharing. The resturtant is a distance from the city centre. We took a cab ride but was worth it

Chicken Satay was amazing. The restaurant has all dishes made Vegetarian but tastes like Meat. After we ate the food, we asked for Dessert menu and the... More

Vegan-Vegetarian Asian restaurant with faux meat and fish. We tried a thai beef dish, pad thai with "shrimp" and crispy "duck". Nice ambiance, wine, waiter... Not many gluten-free choices - only about 3 dishes as the "faux" food is full of gluten. Fairly pricey.

This was my second place in my quest to find the best vegetarian places in Montreal. And this time too I followed a review on TripAdvisor and it landed to me exactly where I wanted. The food was delicious and spicy as I liked it. The service was a true reflection of Oriental hospitality and the prices were surprising affordable

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighborhood Profile
Le Plateau Mont-Royal
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the city's most diverse and distinctly authentic experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colorful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
