The place is clean and authentic. It reminds me so much of home with its Cantonese buffet and Chinese dim sum. I come here frequently to get its inexpensive pastries. There are also northern Chinese, Vietnamese, Japanese and Korean dishes. There is also a Chinese...More

Montreal Chinatown with its actual perimeter defined by guardian lions is easy to cover within about an hour. That if you only plan to stroll to enjoy the hustle and bustle, the architecture and the waft of the exotic. Otherwise it’s a place where to...More

Honestly, I love chinatown! Best bubble tea and food can be found there. If you travel a lot and you need converters, Chinatown is also where you should go!

Compared to Chinatowns around the world, this is quite small. Everything one gets in a Chinatown are available in this small area. Well worth a visit. Ten minute walk from the centre of old Montreal .

Great fun to be in the orient but still in your own backyard. The restaurants offer spectacular menus in English and French and you hear Madarin spoken on the streets and in the shops. A very unconventional experience.

The YWCA on René-Lévesque West has a hotel section with nice rooms at reasonable prices, located in downtown Montreal.
