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!

    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.

        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.

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

          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.

        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.

          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.

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

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

                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!

                    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.

                      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.

                          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.
