Food - bland and just not good. Ordered the dinner for 2. They forgot to give us the fried bananas. The shrimp had no taste, the chicken had 90 percent batter and 10 percent chicken and the beef fried rice was soaked with soy sauce

Service - they seem to rush us which is funny as they only had 3 tables they were serving. Customer service is less to be desired

Overall - their location will entice you to come in. Having a small china town, they are on prime real estate but from an Asian foodie - go somewhere else.

Great food, great service and a great choice. What else could you ask for. We enjoyed the Szechuan prawns and Thai chilli beef. The staff were so obliging and loved to talk about our country, Australia.

Mon Shing offers a fine variety of well prepared dishes. The service was warm, engaging and friendly. I would give this restaurant high marks but it is really in need of a complete renovation and cleaning. The plates, forks and chopsticks were clean but the chairs, tables and floors are dusty and grimey. Stairs to the lower level bathrooms are just sad and boxes adorn the hall. The bathroom is beyond filthy. The back room, insight of the hall is a collection of old coats, soiled garments and garbage. There are other places nearby that can offer comparable comforts.

I never eat in Chinatown anymore, the area did not renew itself a lot these last few years so I came to neglect it like most Montrealers.

On the spur of the moment, I walked in this place and ordered ginger beef & onions.

The dish came sizzling hot and delivered on the promised flavours, it was really a good dish I would recommend on a cold winter day.

With white rice, total came in at a very reasonable $21, all in. Yes.
