Group of 10 in Montreal

Hi all!

I'm looking for a great place to take a group of 10 people, but we're on a bit of a budget - we're trying to keep it at around $20-$30 per person. We're going to be a group of all ages and the only specifications are that we don't go for Sushi, Thai, or Indian.

Any ideas would be really appreciated! Thanks!!

  1. I forgot to mention - we'll be coming from McGill University, so anywhere within walking or short-cab distance from there would be amazing. Thanks again!

      Dunn's Famous Smoke Meat on Metcalfe or at Phillips Square. Especially if you are bringing out of towners, they will get a taste of Montreal and you'll be well below budget.

    2. Is it for lunch or dinner? An option would be going to Chinatown - which is not too far from McGill (walking distance in nice weather), and always fun to do in a group.

        I second the Chinatown idea. Get a big table with a lazy susan in the middle and off you go! It's inexpensive, you'll get lots of tasty food for your money, and the round table is perfect for groups. I specifically recommend: Hong Kong on St-Laurent & La Gauchetiere and Mon Nan (upstairs) on Clark for groups. Have fun!

          Oops - I thought I put in all the info! It's for a dinner.

          Chinatown is a really good idea - we're taking out an academic that most of us haven't met before so something communal like that would be great for breaking the ice.

          The other places I was thinking were Pintxu, Liverpool House, Au Petit Extra, or Le Taj. Any thoughts on those?


          1. re: leyb

            If your price includes drinks, tax and tip, forget about Liverpool House. It won't even come close to being within your budget. Au Petit Extra is good, but expect to pay $20 to $25 for the table d'hote, plus drinks and tax and tip on top of that. Pintxo is likely on the slightly pricier end of things, too. As for Le Taj - I know they have a lunch buffet for around $20 pp, not sure how much dinner would be there.

              Le Taj is Indian and you said you don't go for Indian....

                Yes! You're right... originally the boss didn't want Indian but said he'd consider it if it was the best value (the other specs still stand though).

            The nice thing about the Chinatown idea is that you can still order some impressive dishes (like lobster), but it will still be under budget because of the more reasonable dishes. This will be nice to impress the visiting academic. To add to the list, I quite like the dinner menu at Kam Fung too.
