10 Montreal Restaurants Taking Care of Delivery Themselves

Why not order straight from the source?

View as Map

Knowing how much money has been going directly into the hands of multinational delivery giants instead of local restaurants during the pandemic is enough to kill anyone’s appetite. Mounting pressure from struggling local restaurants, industry bodies, and even mayor Valérie Plante, however, mean that delivery caps may be in the pipeline for Quebec. In the meantime, many restaurants across town have turned to local alternatives, like Chk Plz, Radish, and RestoLoco, for their less prohibitive fees. There are others, though, who have opted to conduct their own deliveries, keeping profits and jobs in-house. From Indian curries to Southern-style mac and cheese, here’s a list of Montreal restaurants taking care of delivery themselves.

Note: Restaurants on this map are listed geographically.

1. Comptoir Sainte-Cécile

Copy Link
232 Rue de Castelnau E, Montréal
QC H2R 1P5, Canada
(514) 271-9888
Visit Website

Hybrid grocery and sandwich counter Comptoir Sainte-Cécile offers delivery on Tuesdays and Fridays, as well as pick-up on the daily at its Villeray brick-and-mortar. Owners Ségué Lepage and Adèle Prud’homme continue to offer their now-famous Comptoir mustard to patrons, as well as their regular menu of rotating soups, salads, and sandwiches. Indulge in their famous carrot cake for dessert.

2. Punjab Palace

Copy Link
920 Rue Jean-Talon O, Montréal
QC H3N 1S6, Canada
(514) 495-4075
Visit Website

This Parc-Ex institution has been packing the flavour with North Indian fare since opening in 1991. Warm up with some tandoori chicken, palak paneer, or vegetarian biryani.

3. Dinette Triple Crown

Copy Link
6704 Rue Clark, Montréal
QC H2S 3E9, Canada
(514) 272-2617
Visit Website

Dinette is a summer favourite for picnics at nearby Parc de la Petite Italie, but its hearty fare is perhaps even more likely to hit the spot come winter. The Southern barbecue restaurant is offering a shorter menu to accommodate delivery right now, but, not to worry, it still delivers the classics, like fried chicken and a deliciously decadent mac and cheese.

4. Uluwatu Cuisine Indonessiéne

Copy Link
1239 Avenue Lajoie, Outremont
QC H2V 1P2, Canada
(514) 858-9288

For great Indonesian food, which isn’t so easy to come by in the city, Outremont’s newest restaurant, Uluwatu, is definitely worth a (takeout) visit. But for anyone who can’t make it there in person, they’ve got their own drivers ready to deliver their delicious creations, like Soto Betawi, a soup with diced beef short ribs and vegetables, originating from Jakarta.

5. Le Roi du Smoked Meat

Copy Link
6705 Rue St-Hubert, Montréal
QC H2S 2M6, Canada
(514) 273-7566
Visit Website

Some may balk at the idea of going anywhere but Schwartz’s or Snowdon Deli for their smoked meat fix, but St-Hubert’s Le Roi du Smoked Meat is equipped to satisfy many late-night cravings, with its own take of beef brisket on rye, plus spaghetti à la Roi au gratin (i.e., topped with golden, melted cheese), and a decent greek salad. Open daily until midnight, and offering delivery since pre-pandemic times.

6. Restaurant Thaïlande

Copy Link
88 Rue Bernard O, Montréal
QC H2T 2J8, Canada
(514) 271-6733
Visit Website

While its traditional decor and floor seating are undoubtedly part of the charm of this well-established Mile-End establishment, patrons can at least revel in its tum kha (a galanga and coconut milk soup) and pad phed talay (a seafood sauté) from home.

7. vinvinvin

Copy Link
1290 Rue Beaubien E, Montréal
QC H2S 1P9, Canada
(514) 379-6969
Visit Website

This La-Petite-Patrie wine bar, specializing in natural, organic, and biodynamic offerings, has been going by the name miamiamiam during the pandemic. Head chef Marina De Figueiredo changed up its offering to Szechuan-inspired dishes developed with the help of Anita Feng (ex Trilogie, now J’ai Feng), but the organic wines are still flowing.

8. Pizza St-Viateur

Copy Link
27 Rue Bernard O, Montréal
QC H2T 2J6, Canada
(514) 907-0007
Visit Website

This popular Mile-End establishment (with a second locations in NDG) has conducted its own delivery service from the very beginning — of its existence, not the pandemic. With a deal of any four 10” pizzas on its menu for 39$, it can be pizza night every week.

4185 Rue Sainte-Catherine, Westmount
QC H3Z 3K2, Canada
(514) 320-0191
Visit Website

This upscale downtown sushi restaurant has its own delivery service and has been offering pick-up since the beginning of the pandemic. Ryu is well-known for the 100 percent sustainably-sourced seafood that graces its rolls, but it’s also now delivering amazing desserts — like milk and cookies — from sister establishment Livia Sweets.

10. Restaurant Beba

Copy Link
3900 Rue Éthel, Verdun
QC H4G 1S4, Canada
(514) 750-7087
Visit Website

This Verdun restaurant inspired by Italian and Argentinian cuisines delivers directly to your door every Friday and Saturday. It’s the perfect excuse to stock up on empanadas, soup, private import wines, porchetta, and salads.
