Asian food courts in Montreal?

Are there any Asian food courts in Montreal? Basically, four or five mom and pop takeout places serving Asian dishes. Not looking for franchise places like Thai Express, Tiki Ming, or Vie & Nam.

  1. Faubourg Ste-Catherine (ste-catherine west) has a good selection of non-chain (?) asian food.

      Note: as was mentioned in the summer closure thread, "Cuisine Bangkok is closed from 4 August to 2 September." But there are other options in the mall.

    2. The closest thing we have to an Asian food court is at Faubourg Ste-Cahterine. Most places are independent and food quality goes from decent to great.

      1. Thank you everyone for this info. Much appreciated.

        1. Check out Plaza Cote-des-Neiges,

          There is an excellent and very large Asian grocery with a hot meal counter.
          Downstairs is a very ethnic food court with a number of very interesting asian options. It is without a doubt the most ethnic food court in Montreal --- it is a hidden gem.

              A Walmart is opening where the Zellers used to be. With the increase in foot trafic expect more food businesses to open.

                bleh most of the places down there are absolutely horrible.
                I tried the chinese ravioli place, the dumplings were meh and came with this generic peanut sauce. La cheminee perse is dry meat, with cold and dry sides. Aladdin's shish taouk is like 5 bucks for an incredibly dry sandwich. The chicken at pitaburger is incredibly dry and chewy, the fries are bland and yellow, the cheese curds are not fresh or not even curds at all, the burgers are somewhat decent for the price. The mexican place is just your typical downtown mall mexican food court place but cheaper.

                The only place I liked there, was the carribbean one next to the washrooms, but they closed down a couple of months ago

                  i disagree - the food court is definitely an attraction as is the rest of the mall.

                    so, what items can you recommend me? Are the asian wok places any good? I haven't tried them out yet
