Lee Garden in Montreal

I live in New York City and have been unable to find Chinese food there to rival Toronto's Lee Garden. Anything close or even better in Montreal?

    I have ever been but Montreal does not have great Chinese food in general. I would not recommend Montreal Chinese food to a New Yorker.

        Not much Chinese food in Montreal can rival that offered in Toronto but assuming Lee Garden is still as I remember it from 15 years ago a similar calibre restaurant in Montreal would be VIP.

          VIP is my fav in mtl for sit down (it really isnt very good) but its nothing compared to nyc IMO..

      I'm just curious about your request:
      You live in NY, but want a Toronto style restaurant in Montreal?
      Can I be so bold to ask why?

      I might have unknowingly walked by Lee Garden on Spadina during my few visits to Toronto, but never really heard of it.
      A look at their on-line menu seems to show basic Cantonese fare.
      Most people have their favorite Montreal Chinatown resto, without a definitive top-dog.
      Me? for Cantonese, I like Beijing on de la Gauchetiere
      You can peruse their entire menu on-line.
