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

    There's a great Colombian chicken place on St-Jacques called Rosty: www.rostypoulet.com

    It's a small family-run rotisserie that delivers around St-Henri and the best part is (for me!) they take Interac on all home orders. The chicken is fantastic (tender, juicy, amazing spice rub, crispy skin) and the Rosty sauce is delicious. Their sweet potato crispy fries are outstanding also. It's my new go-to restaurant for deliveries in the Hen! The folks who answer the phones and deliver the food couldn't be nicer/friendlier either!

    Strongly recommended!

      Thanks for the suggestion. Menu looks good. I especially like the sweet potatoes and healthy meal options. Will have to check out their delivery area limits.

        Their sweet potato fries with Rosty sauce which is sort of like a tzaziki, are some of the best in the city! They have great wings also!

        Make sure you ask for the sweet potato fries instead of regular (also good but sp are outstanding!) when ordering. Add a couple of wings too. It's the best delivery in the neighborhood and despite the fast-foody design of their site, is actually a small and friendly family run business. Prices are right, also!

          I got a bad impression of rosty when I ordered a chicken sandwich and it was a chicken salad sandwich that was really no better than something you order at St Hubert or some bad chicken chain. I need to try it again I guess

            Gave Rosty another try and this time liked it much better. Got a leg combo with fries and caesar salad. The leg was pretty good. The fries reminded me of a good version of burger king fries (which I havent had in years) and the salad was only just barely ok. The one problem With this place for me is the 15$ minimum. They delivered for less anyways because I live around the corner, or because they're desperate ;). Anyways it's defintley a better option for the St Henri area.

        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?

            Al-Taib delivers, I think with minimum order. http://www.altaib.com/index.php 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.

                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)

                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.

                      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.

                          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.

                            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.

                      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.

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

                              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?). .

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