15 Must-Eat Korean Restaurants in Montreal

For every diner’s bulgogi and bibimbap needs

View as Map

Montreal may not be bursting at the seams with Korean options — but the city has seen a reasonable uptick in the last couple of years. Provided a diner is willing to seek out delicious dishes beyond the boundaries of their borough, there are some excellent options to be found all over.

Many of the restaurants on this map focus on just one part of Korean food — soups and stews, barbecue, or fried chicken. They run the gamut from homestyle classics at Chez Bong and Hwang Kum to more slick and modern takes at Côte-des-Neiges’ Pocha de Marie or Omma, now on Ontario Street.

Health experts consider dining out to be a low-to-moderate risk for the vaccinated. For updated information and regulations, please visit the official sites of the Quebec government and Montreal’s public health authority (Santé Montréal).

1. Coq Au Miel

Copy Link
4824 Boul Saint-Jean, Pierrefonds-Roxboro
QC H9H 4B2, Canada
(514) 624-5555
Visit Website

Newcomer Coq au Miel is bringing some of the best local examples of this beloved street food snack to the West Island. Coq au Miel’s crispy Korean-style corn dogs are stuffed with cheese (mozzarella or cheddar) or sausage (or both); stick with the basics or try the squid ink or potato versions (the latter is covered in small potato cubes). As the restaurant’s name suggests, Coq au Miel also specializes in chicken, including wings and popcorn chicken.

2. Bol Orange

Copy Link
983 Boulevard Décarie, Montréal
QC H4L 3M6, Canada
(514) 800-3737
Visit Website

Ville-Saint-Laurent may not be a go-to dining destination, but it’s replete with a sturdy number of low-key neighbourhood eateries, and for Korean food, Bol Orange is a fan favourite. Deopbap (a variation of bibimbap), japchae, galbi (grilled short ribs) and kimbap rolls all feature on the menu, which includes a few Japanese options.

3. Mon Ami (multiple locations)

Copy Link
6290 Avenue Somerled, Montréal
QC H3X 2B6, Canada
(514) 439-2580
Visit Website

There’s no shortage of options at the various locations of Mon Ami, giant of the local Korean food scene. Known for its Korean fried chicken, the chain also serves up a number of other Korean classics, and two of its locations — one downtown, the other in Saint-Laurent — specialize in Korean barbecue. The restaurant is expanding across the city at a rapid pace, with four fast food counters now among its offerings.

4. Dawa

Copy Link
6135 Rue Sherbrooke O, Montréal
QC H4A 1Y3, Canada
(514) 508-3665
Visit Website

Korean fried chicken has been blowing up in Montreal in recent years, but DaWa was one of the first spots in Montreal to focus on the stuff. It’s all about the chicken at DaWa, whether boneless or bone-in, plain or doused in Korean-tao sauce (sweet chili sauce), a Korean take on General Tao.

5. Pocha De Marie

Copy Link
5349 Avenue Gatineau, Montréal, QC H3T 1X1, Montreal
QC H3T 1X1, Canada
(438) 387-1700
Visit Website

On the east side of Côte-des-Neiges, chef Marie Kim of Incheon is crafting both new and classic Korean dishes. That means options like hot stone dolsot bibimbap and jeon appear alongside a kimchi-bulgogi burger and K-tacos made with a kimchi salsa.

6. La Maison De Seoul

Copy Link
5030 Rue Sherbrooke O, Montréal
QC H4A 1S7, Canada
(514) 489-3686
Visit Website

Now located in Lasalle, BYOW resto La Maison De Seoul is a great bet for sizzling dolsot bibimbap and Korean fried chicken, and has also begun incorporating more trendy, street food-inspired items (like kogos—Korean pogos) and Canadianified takes on Korean flavour (ahem, kimchi poutine).

7. Le Petit Seoul

Copy Link
5245 Boul St-Laurent, Montréal
QC H2T 1S4, Canada
(514) 379-4929
Visit Website

The charming and affordable Le Petit Seoul has done quite well for itself since opening in 2018, when Le Devoir critic Jean-Philippe Tastet gave high praise to the spot, recommending brothy noodles, the tartare-like yukhoe, or the seafood pancake.

8. Sam Cha

Copy Link
2176 A Rue Sainte-Catherine, Montréal
QC H3H 1M6, Canada
(514) 932-7565
Visit Website

Montreal has several all-you-can-eat Korean BBQ joints, and Shaughnessy Village’s SamCha is one of the best. At $25 per person, it’s a great value, too; the all-you-can-eat option includes soup, salad and rice, four meats, two sides, veggies and dessert.  SamCha is especially great for those who are eager to engage in some tabletop barbecuing, but the menu is chock-full of other Korean fare if you’re not into cooking your own dinner.

9. Bar Ganadara

Copy Link
1900 Rue Sainte-Catherine O, Montréal
QC H3H 1M4, Canada
(514) 379-3009
Visit Website

Shaughnessy Village suffered a great blow when student favourite Ganadara closed in 2020, but luckily sister joint Bar Ganadara, which opened in 2017, is still going strong. Don’t let the “bar” in the name fool you; the food — a mix of both traditional Korean and contemporary fusion dishes, with a focus on small plates, dupbap, udon, sashimi and local Korean-fusion favourite, poutine — is far from an afterthought.

10. Opiano

1115 Rue Sherbrooke O, Montréal
QC H3A 1G6, Canada
(438) 333-3335
Visit Website

Unceremoniously hidden in a downtown basement (right alongside another hidden gem, Super Sandwich), Opiano’s vast menu covers a range of classics, including bibimbap, japchae, kimbap, mandu (Korean dumplings) and more. Warming pork bone soup (bbyeo haejangguk) is but one highlight.

11. Atti

Copy Link
2077 Boulevard Robert-Bourassa, Montréal
QC H3A 2M3, Canada
(514) 842-2884
Visit Website

After closing their restaurant in 2018, Atti’s owners turned their focus on their takeout counters —and anyone who works within walking distance of the underground malls where Atti Express’ two locations are based should be glad they did. A far better lunch option than the ubiquitous downtown food courts, Atti has all the classics at a great price (like $10 bibimbap and japchae).

12. Omma

Copy Link
51 Rue Ontario O, Montréal
QC H2X 1Y8, Canada
(514) 379-1183
Visit Website

Now located in the Quartier des Arts, Omma is a perfect date night or pre-show option, serving up a well-rounded menu replete with soups, curries, and salads.

13. Comon 꼬몽

3969 Bd LaSalle, Verdun
QC H4G 2A1, Canada

1021 Boul St-Laurent, Montréal
QC H2Z 1J4, Canada
(514) 396-7779
Visit Website

The japchae (stir-fried sweet potato noodles) and just-greasy-enough dumplings are some of the hot items at Chinatown’s Chez Bong, an institution in the local Korean food scene. The restaurant’s namesake owner, Madame Bong, opened Montreal’s first Korean spot along with her husband in the late 80s, and has been running Chez Bong since 2003.

15. Haru Hana

912 Boul de Maisonneuve E, Montréal
QC H2L 1Z1, Canada
(514) 903-5005

With comforting stews, steamed buns and rice bowls aplenty, Haru Hana is the best bet in the Village for Korean. There are Japanese options on the menu, but it functions better as a Korean eatery.
