Where to Get Takeout in Côte-des-Neiges

Dining on the western side of the mountain

View as Map

The neighbourhood may not be on the radar of fine dining enthusiasts, but ignore the plethora of dining options in Côte-des-Neiges at your own peril. With an exceptionally diverse population, CDN has a fantastically wide range of culinary options — most of which are also particularly affordable, with the exception of the Hermitage Museum-themed Russian restaurant Ermitage.

Caribbean, Indian, Vietnamese, and Filipino cuisines all get shout-outs on this map, alongside options for Greek grill and gyro (Yia Sou), smoked meat (Snowdon Deli), and Portuguese (Da Silva).

There are three main zones for restaurants in CDN: along Côte-des-Neiges Road, around Snowdon métro on Queen Mary, and Décarie — with a few other options scattered around Victoria Avenue.

If you're looking to eat in Notre-Dame-de-Grâce, the other half of this borough, Eater's NDG guide has you covered.

Note: Restaurants on this map are listed geographically.

1. Pho Lien

Copy Link
5703-B Chemin De la Côte-des-Neiges, Montreal
QC, Canada
(514) 735-6949

Across from the Jewish General lies Pho Lien, offering one of the city’s best bowls of pho. The large, hearty portions of soup are the main draw, but the vermicelli noodle dishes and other menu options are impressive supporting actors.

2. Tuk Tuk

Copy Link
5619-A Ch. De La Côte-Des-Neiges, Montreal
QC H3T 1Y8, Canada
(514) 739-6132
Visit Website

Representing cuisine found on the border of Thailand and Cambodia, Tuk Tuk does the Thai standards (green curry, pad thai, etc.) well, but the Cambodian-leaning plates such as amok (fish in hot stew with rice) deliver something truly memorable.

3. Pushap

Copy Link
5195 Rue Paré, Montreal
QC H4P 1P4, Canada
(514) 737-4527
Visit Website

This all-vegetarian Indian restaurant is legendary when it comes to cheap eats in Montreal. While most come for the thali platters of rice and curry with fried or baked bread, diners can also take home a pound of Indian sweets for obscenely low prices.

4. Le Petit Vibe

Copy Link
5536A Chemin de la Côte-des-Neiges, Montréal
QC H3T 1Y9, Canada
(438) 375-6335
Visit Website

The 2019 opening of this Hawaiian-Filipino restaurant made quite a splash. Backed by co-owners Willson Luu and Ryan Oabel (who runs the kitchen), the menu offers tropical fare such as lechon kawali, a pork belly dish served fried or grilled Filipino style and served with rice and salad. The chicken furikake acts as an excellent secondary dish. Fun fact: there is a “mini menu” available, featuring a few of the restaurant’s best sellers, as well as Haupia pies for dessert, in small form.

5. Caribbean Curry House

Copy Link
6892 Avenue Victoria, Montréal
QC H3W 2T4, Canada
(514) 733-0828
Visit Website

One of the oldest establishments in Montreal’s sturdy Caribbean community serves up a variety of honest and spicy dishes that consistently keeps people coming back for more. Curries wrapped in warm, flaky roti are the staple and are a true bundle of joy. Gluten-free options include curry plates or jerk chicken.

6. Gibeau Orange Julep

Copy Link
7700 boul. Décarie, Montreal
QC H4P 2H4, Canada
(514) 738-7486
Visit Website

Detractors might say it only draws a crowd due to its status as a roadside attraction, with a large, orange dome alongside the Decarie, but the Orange Julep is still a reliable casse-croûte, with some of the best poutine in town. Also worth considering: hot dogs, and the diner's eponymous orange drink to wash it all down.

7. Thanjai

Copy Link
4759 Van Horne, Montreal
QC H3W 1H8, Canada
(514) 419-9696
Visit Website

Billing itself as Montreal's first South Indian restaurant, Thanjai's offerings aren't the same as the mostly North Indian restaurants elsewhere in the city (looking at you, Jean-Talon Street) — dosa (a stuffed rice and lentil crepe) is the specialty, and is served in a 6-foot-long format if requested.

8. Duc de Lorraine

Copy Link
5002 Chemin de la Côte-des-Neiges, Montréal
QC H3V 1G6, Canada
(514) 731-4128
Visit Website

As though being an incredibly diverse neighbourhood for restaurants wasn’t enough, CDN is also home to good incarnations of cuisines typically found in Montreal. Duc de Lorraine’s an exceedingly popular French pastry and sandwich shop that claims hundreds of thousands of visitors every year.

9. Cuisine De Manille

Copy Link
5781 Avenue Victoria, Montréal
QC H3W 2R3, Canada
(514) 344-3670
Visit Website

The CDN borough features a small concentration of Filipino restaurants, and Cuisine de Manille is a surefire bet, serving the likes of pancit bihon, bopis, and adobos since 2003. Available via DoorDash seven days a week.

10. Sen Vàng

Copy Link
5690 Rue Victoria, Montreal
QC, Canada
(514) 507-2771
Visit Website

Located directly across from the Côte-Sainte-Catherine metro station, Sen Vàng is an excellent bet for Tonkinese soup, chicken and rice (or vermicelli) dishes, and fried spring rolls. During the first wave of the pandemic, the owners pivoted to offer classic banh mi sandwiches for the first time. Closed Wednesdays.

11. Ermitage

Copy Link
(514) 735-3886
Visit Website

If the dining room – a replica of St. Petersburg’s famed Hermitage Museum – didn’t make it obvious, Ermitage is significantly pricier than most on this map – but that doesn’t mean it isn’t worth the cost. Plus, with the recent closure of nearby La Caverne, it’s the best Russian option around.

12. Snowdon Deli

Copy Link
5265 Décarie, Montreal
QC H3W 3C2, Canada
(514) 488-9129
Visit Website

The descriptor "institution" might get thrown around flippantly, but this decades-old Jewish deli really is one. Its breakfast menu is comprehensive, but the smoked meat is the big drawcard. Whether or not it's better than tourist magnet Schwartz's is a matter of personal preference, but at Snowdon you won't have to wait in line.

13. Tropical Paradise

Copy Link
5208 Decarie, Montreal
QC H3X 2H9, Canada
(514) 481-2614

Jerk chicken and oxtail curry are two of the big specialties at Trinidadian resto Tropical Paradise, alongside more common options like roti, doubles, and patties.

14. Jumak

Copy Link
5335 Chemin Queen Mary, Montréal
QC H3X 1T9, Canada
(514) 488-8998
Visit Website

A Korean restaurant known for its cheap takes on classic dishes, Jumak is a steady place to go for all kinds of cup bap, seafood pancakes, and spicy kimchi jigae soups. Particular recommendations are the eggplant dumplings and beef and kimchi bibimbap.

15. Grillades Portugaises Da Silva

Copy Link
5334 Chemin Queen Mary, Montreal
QC, Canada
(514) 369-0404
Visit Website

Portuguese chicken, but without the trip to the Plateau. As is de rigueur at other equivalents around town, a meal here is a quarter-chicken with fries. Plain and simple.

16. Yia Sou

Copy Link
5375 Queen-Mary, Montreal
QC, Canada
(514) 488-4222
Visit Website

A Greek grill house done right. Yia Sou sticks to classics, dishing up grilled meat and seafood, and gyro, with a finesse that draws crowds from CDN and beyond.
