Great food in the east end?

I am both perplexed and intrigued is there such a thing as fine dining in the east end of Montreal? Furthermore, do any of those places deliver? I was craving some chinese food and ordered from a place called "Merveilles de chine" on Henri-Bourrassa E. was incredibly dissapointed by their overly sweet and almost poultry free General Tao chicken. I don't really want to talk about their gelatinous beef and broccoli at this time. Anyhoo! Where can I get some decent food in the east end?

Are there any hidden gems I need to know about?

      You're right. I should have posed it as a two pronged question.

      Are there any fine dining establishments in the East End and are there any decent places to get take out there as well?

    2. Hi, I live in Montreal North, try some of the Haitian restaurants, they are pretty good. Also, you are not that far from Jarry Smoked meat, which is pretty good. They are some decent place near fleury I guess, which is not that far from the east end...

      1. One Ahuntsic fine dining restaurant that's getting a lot of good press is Le St-Urbain. I'm pretty certain they don't deliver. Like kpaxonite said, fine dining and home delivery are almost always mutually exclusive concepts.

        I haven't eaten a lot in that area in recent times, but I do find most of the Middle-Eastern places there decent to very good. And there are tons in Ahuntsic and Cartierville. Further west, there are a bunch of interesting choices in VSL and the western part of Cartierville.

        That's all I've got. Sorry I couldn't of more help.

          I don't think that Ahuntisc and Cartierville are part of the east end, but I could be wrong= /.

          Edit: Milano's in Saint-leonard is pretty good too.

            Well, I was basing my response on the location of the restaurant mtlmaven had mentioned, which is in Ahuntsic. Cartierville certainly isn't in the east end, but it's right next to Ahuntsic.

        2. It would be very helpful to be more specific. "East end" could mean anything from the area around Radio-Canada (centre-sud) to Hochelaga-Maisonneuve to points east and north.

          There are some good restaurants on Fleury E., not too far from where you ordered from.

          1. There's an excellent Thai restaurant called Lotus Royal Thai on St-Catherine, just W. of Papineau. Traditional Thai, good service, fairly priced.
