If you're looking for Lebanese fast food in the area, look no further (and definitely do not go across the street to a different restaurant that I will not name.) Food is fresh and made to order, service is fast (which is typical) and the...More

First time trying Lebanese food! Very delicious and cheap for what you get. The gentleman that prepared our food was very funny and sang for us!

Great cheap Lebanese eats, open very late. Nothing fancy, just a few tables, but the food is superb and they stay open very late. Everyone seems to mention the garlic potatoes, for good reason. Try them. You won't be disappointed.

This little shop is Montreal's best late night food spot for authentic Lebanese shawarma wraps, plates, and falafel. Located at the lower level of a club just off Rue Crescent, this hidden gem often has a line (fast moving) after hours where Montreal's famed party...More

The Chicken trio is great value for the money and it is great too. I usually take it spicy with extra tomatoes instead of the turnips.

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
