    Very small Chinatown compared to some of the other big cities. It's well kept and clean. Quite a few Chinese restaurants, Vietnamnese restaurants, bakeries and bubble tea spots can be found here. There are some lounges with delicious drinks and food and make great hangout place with friends. Checkout the L2 lounge, all types of bubble tea imaginable, made from real fruits or milk. Delicious!

    It's not the best Chinatown in North America or even in Canada (Vancouver is much better), but it does give Montreal's cuisine some diversity.

    I went here on one summer evening. It was a clean, safe, interesting and amazingly full of life. It was interesting to look at the Hong Kong style cafe and pastry stores.

    The first time when I had a glance at Chinatown, nothing much to see, as I am from modern China. This place looks old. Yet, once I get to know more about the local history, the vivid picture of Chinatown with its earlier habitants comes to life! Who are the earlier habitants of Chinatown? What did they do for living? Which section did they live? What were the ups and downs in their days? What’s their belief? Is Chinatown dying? If you are interested to find out answers to all these questions, you may contact me (reneey.yang@gmail.com) for a heritage tour in this ghetto.

    There is a Chinatown in a lot of cities but this is the first one I visited and that's why it is special to me. Thank you, Montreal.

    This is a relatively small chinatown when comparing to Vancouver or toronto. It does offer some decent chinese and Vietnamese cuisine for your liking.
