If you're looking for Lebanese fast food in the area, look no further (and definitely do not go across the street to a different restaurant that I will not name.) Food is fresh and made to order, service is fast (which is typical) and the...More

Great cheap Lebanese eats, open very late. Nothing fancy, just a few tables, but the food is superb and they stay open very late. Everyone seems to mention the garlic potatoes, for good reason. Try them. You won't be disappointed.

This was the original location that started in 1986. They still honor the tradition of maling you what you want. I usually go for a late night chicken shawarma, stuffed with everything, potatoes, hummus, garlic, hot sauce, etc. I really like how they grill it...More

Boustan is the perfect place to go after a late night out. Their shawarma sandwiches and garlic potatoes are amazing. Limited amount of seat, i recommend ordering to go.

Decided to stop in and check this place out after seeing the good reviews. What actually caught my eye on the menu online were the garlic potatoes with garlic sauce. I ordered the Kafta Kebab plate since it came with a side of the garlic...More

This little shop is Montreal's best late night food spot for authentic Lebanese shawarma wraps, plates, and falafel. Located at the lower level of a club just off Rue Crescent, this hidden gem often has a line (fast moving) after hours where Montreal's famed party...More

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
