I suppose I'm a bit of a "snob" since I've been to Indonesia and know what the food "should" taste like. I was hopeful that Gado Gado could remind me of some of my favorite dishes, but there was certainly something lacking. I started with...More

Fairly genuine Indonesian food, perhaps not the best in Montreal. Unlike the most obvious option, this restaurant is open on Mondays. Very laid back decor, almost fast-food like, but the food is clearly not fast food. Ask for sambal to add to your meal as...More

This is a pleasant, welcoming, and relatively small scale place with very tasty food. It's like "visiting Indonesia" through some remarkable flavours. It seems family run and service is conscientious.

We were out sightseeing and starting getting hungry. We just happened upon Gado Gado just before they stopped serving lunch. The Indonesian food was amazing! I had a delectable Chicken and Lemongrass Soup and a delicious Mackerel with Red Pepper Sauce. My partner ordered Marinated...More

I was craving some flavorful spice-heavy food and decided on Gado Gado. It was our first day in Montreal and even though the restaurant is in the midst of touristy Montreal, it was quietly tucked away. The food was beyond delicious (we tried mostly seafood...More

Loved the music, the variety of food, the authentic taste of the dishes. All their satay dishes are excellent, we found the gado gado (a salad) to be less strong in peanut than the original ( sauce was not as thick as in Indonesia) but...More

Tast food , great service. Place is uncomfortably tight but it's worth it. Get the mixed grill - get extra garlic sauce (side of potatoes) and enjoy. The puffy things were yum as well. Would go multiple times if I lived around here.

We were excited to see that they offered a Rijsttafel - the Dutch version of an Indonesian fixed price selection sampling a wide variety of Indonesian food. $36/pp. And boy did they deliver! It was a relatively slow night when we ate here, so the...More

We finally managed to try this restaurant on our recent day trip to Montreal. We arrived early afternoon, about 45 minutes before it's closed. It was quiet, small place but the seating could accommodate about 35-40 people. Our appetizer was Pempek which was egg stuffed...More
