Went to Mon Shing for their 2 lobster special ( C$36 ) and a serve of Yong Chow Fried Rice. Food is pretty yummy and tasty. And Cheap considering we in Melbourne, Australia are paying A$60/lb for our lobster. Here the 2 lobsters weigh around 3 lbs for C$36. Highly recommend.

Staff were friendly though and gave us jasmine tea on arrival complimentary. Beer was expensive compared to most in the city. On the whole ok... More

Most recently dined at Mon Shing during a weekday evening. Quality of the food was good, but service was very slow, despite the restaurant being near empty.

This is my second time here. Several years went by between both reasons. Once again the place was full when I arrived just a little after lunch time. If you arrive her alone, they will sit you at a table of 8 or 10 with other alone people. So what! As you sit down a hot tea pot of Jasmin... More

I read the reviews and thought I would try this place. The portions were huge and great for sharing so bring a bunch of people.. When we arrived the place was really empty, about 5pm weekday but it quickly filled up as we were there. No frills but very enjoyable.

Okay, first of all, I've been to many Chinese restaurants and had a lot of Chinese food being Chinese myself. Therefore I'm a very critical Chinese restaurant reviewer. I thought this place was a fantastic value compared to other restaurants in the area outside of Chinatown. There were 10 of us and we ordered the 8 course meal and we... More

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.
