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

I decided to try this restaurant because we were going with friends who are vegetarian/vegan. Being a carnivore myself, I wasn't really sure what to expect, so I based my choice on other reviews. Located on a trendy street near downtown Montreal, parking is scarce and metered until 9 pm, so get there early. Our reservations were for 4 but... More

The food is good and the menu varied. A bit expensive for this type of place. If you are looking for a nice vegetarian place with a bit unusual food this is your place.

After reading the reviews I was expecting a good dinner but was very disappointed. Being a vegan my self I do a lot of cooking and when I was served oily mediocre food for such a price I felt really cheated. For starters we had the "Curry Puffs" which was basically small vegetable samosa's fried in stale oil and for... More

I dream about this restaurant, and I generally don't get excited about food. Absolutely delicious veg cuisine that is unlike anything I've had anywhere else. The peanut "chicken" and crispy spinach is a favorite, as is the wonton soup and "beef" dishes. And the coconut tapioca pudding!!! Ah. I've died and gone to Heaven.

What a treat to have a selection of "meats" that taste fabulous, but are vegetarian. The service was great and our server helped to ensure choices and drinks complemented each other. This restaurant tops my list for vegetarian options inclusive of ambience in a trendy district of Montreal.

We came with high expectations, and even those were exceeded by excellent service, excellent atmosphere, and excellent food! The prices are a bit steep, but it is well worth the price to experience fine vegetarian dining at least once when you're in Montreal.

My first date with my wife was 8 years ago @ Chu chai! I might be sentimental about this place, but I think is still my favorite place in Montreal! Ambience is cool, people are awesome, cocktail are great and the food is just delicious!! What more can I say....

really excellent food--the fried seaweed appetizer is TO DIE FOR! creative, trendy dishes made with all vegan ingredients, but called by their animal names (chicken satay, shrimp pad thai,etc), could be a little confusing looking at the menu. Everything we had was delicious. Expect pretentious 20-somethings that don't know the difference between vegan & gluten-free to be sitting all around... More

I was visiting Montreal from Toronto and absolutely loved this place! The food was delicious and our server Jen was so delightful! I definitely recommend the fried shrimp and anything coconut.
