It's tough for Chinese restaurants to be truly exceptional because on average, Chinese food is pretty consistent wherever you go. It's a lot easier to spot (and feel the after effects) of bad Chinese food. With that being said, this establishment met my expectations for a mid-level Chinese restaurant. Not exceptional, not bad, right in the middle.

Good news is that everything was good. Standard fare, well executed, not cheap. A westernized Chinese restaurant like many others.

This was our third visit to this restaurant , once for dinner and twice for lunch. We both took the luncheon menu. We found the food quite good. I enjoyed the BBQ lunch box. The service was quick and efficient.

It's not always easy to find Mr. Ma open for business, so a friend and I took advantage of the open sign and finally had a meal there. Located below street level, Mr. Ma is an oasis of calm in an area which is known for its hustle and bustle. The wait staff is unfailingly pleasant and helpful. They should... More

I visited Mr. Ma as part of a business social function. We were about 25 different guests celebrating colleagues monthly birthdays. Here's how my experience went: 1- Location It is definitely located in a very strategic part of downtown Montreal. Being art of the Place Ville Marie complex, the place is very much accessible by any means of transportation. If... More

Ok seriously the prix fix menu is pretty much always available: I love the corn and crab soup, the peanut sauce dumplings, the general Tao chicken and the fried brown rice. Call me sentimental but this is my goto order in this goto place. Give it a try, you will not be disappointed. I've been at least 25 times over... More

Not up to my expectations. I was disappointed both with my food and the price charged for it. The service was just okay. I would guess this place trades on its location, because it doesn't have much else going for it.

As a long time, if not frequent customer, latest experience at Mr Ma's was disappointing. Oriental part of meal was still good,which at top prices for oriental food it should be, but vegetables served, yellow beans broccoli and baby carrots like those in little bags at grocery stores had nothing oriental about them. Service has deteriorated badly. After a 30... More

I had the general tao chicken for lunch and must say that for the price of $24.95, I at the very least expect real chicken and fresh vegetables. Definitely the worst general tao chicken I have ever tasted.

Schezuan food, suppose to be notch better then Chinese food. Refine food. This place is disgusting, it s equivalent of a 4.99$ restaurant in chinatown. But they charge 35$ for rotten plate of thai boeuf.

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighborhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
