The food in Boustan is very good, especially for the price. The place is a bit small and not that comfortable, though they serve very fast. I would say is a great choice if you don't have much time to eat but want to have a good dish instead of junk fast food.

With 7$ I got one of their platters with falafel, veggies, hummus, a pita, salad, etc. I ate so much I could barely finish it. I love Lebanese food, and this is one of the best fast foods I ever tried. Well done.

The falafel was not so good, was put in microwave to warm up, the kebab was delicious and prices were very reasonable. It is in a great area to walk & was reasonable, pleasant walk from Square Phillipe hotel

It is. Busy restaurant for after hours. The food taste good if you are completely wasted. I do not understand how this hole in the wall got all those 5-star. I make make very very clear that I do not want no garlic in my sandwich and still got a sandwich full of garlic. The chicken shawrmeh taste like crackers,... More

This place is reminiscent of NYC's Halal Guys. Delicious food and is affordable. I would definitely come back and visit this place.

Shawarma or shish taouk? Apparently MTLers were getting them mixed up and Boustan was going to fix that, one person at a time. Had the Chicken plate and the Chicken sandwich. Excellent and excellent. Great value, good portions, well seasoned, and freshly prepared.

Thank vsuvius

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighbourhood Profile
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 professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
