Love it; reminds me of Thailand. You should definitely try the appetizer with the Keffir Leaf and the drink with it as well.! Would recommend to vegetarians and non-vegetarians as well.

Right on Saint-Denis near the heart of the lower Plateau is Chu Chai, a popular vegan Asian restaurant. The dishes range from good to excellent, the menu is diverse, and the location is convenient. The desserts were pretty good, I must confess. "Mock meat" restaurants...More
