    Well.... I can't give you the specific since I am like you I am more than 500 mile away. But anyway we were there a few weeks ago, we had dim sum. It was great. We are heading there this weekend.

    It depends what you like, canadian chinese food or real chinese food? Just go in the restaurent and see who is eating there. If mostly Whites, then go back out and move on. If you see mostly asians, I think you should be safe. Have fun.

    New York,

    Dim sum at Le Maison Kam Fung, on St Urbain, or Ruby Rouge on Clark, is good. I have found most of the other restaurants in Chinatown to be average. Price range is very reasonable compared to what I normally pay for Chinese in the USA.

    Mon Nan

    My favorite one is MON NAN on Clark. It opens until 4 am. That's where we go after finishing clubbing or strip clubbing.

    Very affordable. Try the steamed giant oyster ... mmm good.

    Dim sum at Le Maison Kam Fung, on St Urbain is my preferred place to head... the prices there are very reasonable, the food is excellent. It is also the only place that I have found my favorite sweet rice in lotus leaf. I don't go anywhere else anymore.

    New York City

    RxRD,

    If you are in New York City the place to eat is Ping's, on Mott Street. They have terrific dim sum there. That's located in Chinatown and a very short walk from the courthouses on Foley Square.

    The best dim sum I ever had in my life was in San Francisco, at Ton Kiang in the Richmond section.

    EB, I don't go to Canal Chinatown anymore, just too damn hard to find parking space. I go to Flushing now, alot easier to park and the restaurant is a bit more spacious.

    BTW, I think all the good Chinese restaurants are in Canada. The best are in Toronto and Vancourver. Somebody can correct me if I'm wrong.

    Smile Deer Garden

    Deer Garden

    on St-Laurent St. near René-Lévesque Blvd.

    (on the same block of Cleo)

    Very inexpensive, and very good.

    Probably the best "General Tao" chicken I tasted in Montreal (for around 8$ only)

    But the best thing about this place is that you can bring your bottle of wine (with no corkage fee). And since the law change few years ago, you can also bring your beer.

    There is a beer store just in front of the restaurant, so you can grab easily your favorite Molson, Budweiser, Corona, Heineken, etc.. to enjoy with your meal.

    Hard to find a better deal. I go there almost ounce a week.

    (and Cleo is at less than 100 meters from the place )

    Deer Garden

    I recently ate at the Deer Garden, when some other plans I had with with some friends went awry and I was left hungry and scrambling to find a place for dinner. Food here is very inexpensive, and IMHO you get what you pay for. Nothing special. In fact none of the traditional non-dim sum restaurants I have eaten at in Chinatown are anything special.

    As I was leaving, a loud argument was developing between one of the customers and one of the waiters over whether the dish the customer ordered had been served with "Chinese mushrooms" as stated on the menu. Frankly I do not even know what "Chinese mushrooms" is supposed to mean. I am aware of a shiitake mushroom, which is usually something I associate with Japanese cuisine.

    Perhaps one of our Asian friends, or Chef, could shed some light on this controversy. I wanted to stick around and see how this argument turned out, to see who won it etc., but I had paid my bill and had to go and meet Doc Holliday at the Hyatt.

    Asian mushroom info.

    I'm not asian, just happen to know about mushrooms (member of a mycological club). Most chinese places serve Shiitake mushrooms, also known as Black mushrooms, Oyster mushrooms, and Wood Ear mushrooms. Depending on the dish, Shiitake and/or Black shrooms are used for stir-fry and rice dishes. Oyster shrooms have a slight seafood flavor and are suitable for soups & chowders, and Wood Ear shrooms have a chewy texture and hold up well when thinly sliced and prepared with strong flavors like tangy garlic or spicy ginger sauce.
