For the past few months now, lockdown has deprived Montreal of one of its favourite pastimes: eating at restaurants. And for many, this has been a time of many cravings, with Chinese food at the top of the list.

Fret not! You can still recreate the restaurant experience from the comfort of your own home while supporting your favourite local restaurants.

Here’s a list of 9 places that offer some of the best Chinese cuisine in Montreal — and where you can order them from.

Restaurant Keung Kee

A staple on Chinatown’s rue de la Gauchetière, Restaurant Keung Kee is the definition of Cantonese comfort food. High-quality ingredients are used for each item on their diverse menu, and their spice blends have been elaborated to perfection.

The Dumpling Hut

The Dumpling Hut

If you’re looking for authentic, local Chinese, look no further. Hidden on a corner right off Saint-Laurent Boulevard, this cozy spot offers a variety of carefully handmade dumplings. You get sixteen dumplings in each dish, which is more than enough to satisfy your cravings.

Our recommendation: Lamb and coriander dumplings
Where to order from: Skip The Dishes

Cuisine Aunt Dai

Cuisine Aunt Dai recently gained a lot of attention for its brutally honest menu descriptions, so you’ll know exactly what to expect before your food even arrives. Though the owner’s words aren’t on the restaurant’s delivery menus, you can find them on their website before placing your order.

Sugar Marmalade

The foodies of Montreal know Sugar Marmalade for its decadent (and Instagrammable) desserts, but don’t let that stop you from trying their savoury food options too. This Hong Kong-style resto adds a Japanese and Taiwanese twist to most of its menu items.

What would a list of Montreal Chinese restaurants be without Qing Hua Dumpling? This place has become a go-to for soup dumpling enthusiasts, and its handmade recipes have gotten countless compliments. Their delivery menu includes a choice of vegetarian dishes, as well as some frozen dumpling options, where the same price gets you twice as much food (if you don’t mind cooking them up yourself).

Our recommendation: Beef curry dumplings
Where to order from: UberEats (Chinatown and de Maisonneuve locations), DoorDash, SkipTheDishes, Fantuan (Chinatown location only)

Restaurant PM

From seafood to vegetarian meals with richly flavoured fried vegetables, Restaurant PM has it all. Picky and indecisive eaters, listen up: this Cantonese place has something for every taste.

Concordia students will know Nos Thés as the best bubble tea option around the downtown campus, as well as a fantastic place to get a lighter meal. They don’t compromise on their delivery menu, though. You can find hearty and flavourful eats as well as your favourite refreshing drink.

Our recommendation: Taiwanese-style sausage fried rice
Where to order from: Uber Eats, DoorDash, Fantuan

Nouilles de Lan Zhou – Noodle Shop

Anyone who has walked down the stretch of Saint-Laurent Boulevard that runs down Chinatown has stopped in front of Nouilles de Lanzhou’s large front window to watch the chefs prepare their hand-pulled noodles. Having a smaller menu has allowed them to master each dish while also allowing the customer to personalize their order.

Our recommendation: Beef Lanzhou noodle special
Where to order from: Uber Eats, Skip The Dishes

One More Thé

Okay, this one isn’t so much a food place, but it’s definitely worth ordering from nonetheless. One More Thé is a Taiwanese bubble tea spot that specializes in creative and fanciful drinks. Eco-conscious boba lovers can order a set of reusable bubble tea straws as well. Their menu carries a few equally gourmet dessert options in case you want a little extra to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Our recommendation: German Black Forest Flower tea, Boba Milk Tea lava cake
