Tasty But Cheap in NDG?

Who can recommend a good place to eat in NDG that is cheap but delicious. Need to be able to sit down - can be ethnic or not. my pocketbook is strained at the moment. Thanks!

  1. Anancy on Somerled has great Jamaican food in a nice atmosphere. My faves are the jerk chicken & stew chicken. Also good rotis & homemade ginger beer, reasonable prices.

    Other NDG faves: Chalet BBQ, Villa Souvlaki, Ganges (Indian). Near the western end of NDG in Montreal West is Burger de ville - great value burgers, salads, grilled veggies.

      ganges isnt cheap
      and MoWest is not part of NDG

      villa de souvflaki is awesome

      1. re: kpaxonite

        Maybe you misread - I didn't say Montreal West was part of NDG, I said it's "Near the western end of NDG in Montreal West."

        Ganges has great weekday lunch specials for under $10.

        1. re: kpzoo

          good to know- thanks! i love ganges but always end up with a pretty hefty bill

        I second the Chalet BBQ - their lunch special will save you coin as well.

        1. re: porker

          Yes, definitely Chalet BBQ has great lunch specials. If you get The Suburban delivered or can find a copy somewhere, they usually have a coupon for a dinner special that includes a quarter chicken (or hot chicken sandwich), cole slaw, fries or baked potato, and a drink - for about $8.

      3. Oh yeah, you can get a real tasty sausage sandwich at Momesso's on Upper Lachine near Old Orchard for cheap. Tavern atmosphere.

          Oh, that's a great suggestion. Being an Italian café, they make really good coffee, too.

        2. La Maison du Kabob, on Atwater. Serves best persian food in montreal, in a unpretentious and small restaurant. Take the Hunters platter for 2 (serves 3 actually) at about 30$, comes with 3 meats & rice, 3 appetizers, 2 soups. Cash only!

            That's not in NDG, it's practically on the Montreal side of Westmount. They do have good food, though, especially the Hunters platter you mention.

            1. re: pyropaul99

              Yeah you're right, it's on the edge of Westmount, but it's not that far from NDG =)

              1. re: SourberryLily

                It's just above Lionel-Groulx metro. St-Henri is nowhere near NDG. But yeah, it's awesome food.

          2. Shaika Cafe on Sherbrooke (http://www.shaikacafe.com/) and Jean's Trinidad Foods, also on Sherbrooke.

            1. Chez Hwang on Upper Lachine Rd ( across from Momesso's) has great Bento Box Lunches for under $10.At night they have all you can eat Korean BBQ for 19.99 each.

              1. I second Villa Souvlaki...it's honest, quick, good food and two people can leave full for $25 tax and tip in. Their Greek chips are addictive!

                1. the restaurants mentioned are the usual suspects anytime this question arises. anyone have tasty suggests for higher end cuisine

                  1. A shade outside of NDG, and not new in any sense, but I find the falafel sandwich at Chez Benny (5071 Chemin Queen-Mary) to be a real winner by any cost/benefit analysis. It's under five dollars with the tax included and will make you forget all the nasty dry falafel wannabes that are as ubiquitous as they are disappointing.

                      I might be spelling this wrong but Hoai Huong on victoria avenue 2 blocks below cote st-catherine serves up excellent and budget friendly vietnamese. lunch special will run you about 10$ for an imperial roll, a house soup (excellent broth) and grilled chicken with rice and salad.
                      Also i can not stress enough how good their lemon grass chicken is.

                    2. Another souvlaki choice on Sherbrooke West. I really like Nikas chicken pitas (large moist pieces of chicken) and french fries (thick, cripsy outside, seasoned well). They have some good lunch specials and are also BYOB. I have never had a big substantial evening meal but for a quick, cheap lunch I think its another good choice.

                        1. Coin d'Asie (vietnamese) has lunch specials under $10.00. Its also BYOB. For dinner I find its too pricey for the quality of food.
