Delivery recommendations?

Any good delivery recommendations for the Atwater area, not including pizza?

      CZ delivers? ooooers, I wonder how far they are willing to come...

      1. re: TheSnowpea

        Delivery by foot (!) so only within easy walking distance of the restaurant.

        1. re: carswell

          Dang! If only I could somehow entice them to hop on the metro I'd be all set... :-)

          1. re: carswell

            Maeve Haldane is her Montreal Gazette review of Cuisine Szechuan today, was very critical of the restaurant regarding delivery issues. Maybe its a language issue, but I'm not sure(concerning not understanding enough English or French when dealing with some customers?). .

            1. re: carswell

              they don't deliver very far...I live on drummond (5-6 blocks away) and they refuse to come to my house.

        2. I always order souvlaki from Georges, on Ste-Catherine corner Atwater. Can't beat their prices and the quality is always good.

            That's mostly what I order when I get delivery. I've discovered the one on Monkland, which does the delivery after about 10pm, is a bit better quality though.

            Could someone give me the address for Cuisine Szechuan? 411 has tons of like-names.

              Just scroll down the thread listing... You'll find it at the bottom of the first post in this thread (along with a bunch of recommended dishes):

                Ugh - I have eaten at the one on Monkland and all I can say is I will never eat there again. The food is horrendous. There used to be a souvlaki place on the corner of Lambert Closse (well, not the corner but in the general vicinity) and Ste. Catherine street that had great great Souvlaki.

                  What'd you eat? I stick to the chicken pitas and only the chicken pitas. With 'low sauce', it taste pretty not-fast-food-like.

                  1. re: kudos

                    My husband had something lamb (we went last summer so I am vague on the details) and I had a greek salad, that had about as much in common with a real greek salad as McDonalds has with fine dining. When my greek salad, in a greek restaurant comes on a bed of knife chopped iceberg lettuce - I am not impressed.

                    1. re: maisonbistro

                      You have to order the Georges salad to get a real greek salad (without lettuce.) I would never get delivery from here (bad service, cold food) but I do takeout the Georges salad when I need a quick lunch. Its a very large portion of tomatoes, green pepper, olives, onions and big pieces of feta with a nice dressing and comes with a warm pita.

              2. re: Em24

                From Georges Souvlaki, 6995 Monkland. (514) 482 - 0040.

                I ordered a Lamb Souvlaki plate (2 pitas) with a pop, for delivery, at 1:10 am.
                Order arrived at 2:20 am. Food tasted mediocre but was completely cold.
                Cost with tax was $18.65. The delivery man grunted angrily when I handed him a 20, didn't offer change and stormed off.

                I would rate the experience somewhere between not great to bad.

                    So where's Hot & Spicy located now in the downtown-area?

                    1. re: BLM

                      Not. the kitchen is located at the Jean Talon branch but they decided to continue serving downtown via home delivery I get delivered (Atwater area) within 20-30 mins on average.(weather permitting)

                      1. re: finefoodie55

                        And I wasn't 100% sure the Jean-Talon branch was still open.

                  2. How about some recommendations for late-night delivery?

                      Zestos delivers til 5 a.m., 7 days a week. It's on University but I'm sure they would go to Atwater.

                      I know your op said no pizza, but hey, they also do subs, poutine, pasta, sandwiches, souvlaki, chicken wings, etc. If by late you mean past midnight, I don't think you'll find any delivery places that don't have pizza as their bread & butter, but good luck...

                      Some of Chinese restos in the Concordia ghetto are open til 1 or 2, maybe they deliver that late?

                      1. re: Shattered

                        Pizza's fine for the late-night stuff.

                      2. re: kudos

                        Al-Taib delivers, I think with minimum order. They are open 24 hours. They do have pizza, so I guess that is out considering you said no pizza, but they also serve really good Lebanese flatbreads (ok, that would be considered Lebanese pizza) and not too bad falafel.
