Excellent middle eastern food. We had the merguez sausage platter and the shwarma. Side dishes were great and the counterman was tremendous and proud that the items were all made in-house.

This Mediterranean grill is a cafeteria style restaurant that now also offers Chinese Kosher food as well. Food is always fresh and tasty and prepared in front of you. Can be a bit noisy at the tables during peak hours, but otherwise a pleasant experience. Take out is always a good choice if the restaurant itself is crowded.

While you'll find a fair number of Orthodox Jews come here because the food is kosher, what's notable is how many other customers come from the neighbourhood and beyond and are willing to pay the kosher food premium simply because the food is so good. The falafel and shish taouk sandwiches are delicious- the best in Montreal. I imagine this... More

Aside from the great grilled meats, we love going to Chez Benny for the local color. On this trip to Montreal, we planned to arrive for a late lunch at C.B. on Friday; the website announced a 4 PM closure before the onset of Shabbat. We arrived by 3 and found no other customers, and they were in the process... More

I tried the beef with black bean sauce. It was good but needed a bit more black bean flavour. My husband has sesame chicken he enjoyed. Hot and sour soup was good, needed a bit more sour. Would go back. $26 rib steak meal a good deal.

Popular Montreal spot for kosher and Israeli food. They bake their own Laffas. Reasonable Shawarma and good selection of side salads. Service at the cashier station could be friendlier.

If you crave a mixed menu of tasty kosher fast food Chinese, shawarma & other unhealthies, this is the place. No aesthetics here, just gobble down and satisfy your obsession. Btw, very friendly multilingual service. Bete'avon!

Came to eat with the family, something for everyone, great kosher selection and fresh. Loved the shawarma in a laffa, big portions, so they are perfect to share- ordered a couple combos for the kids and it was plenty

We were looking for a kosher meat restaurant in Montreal and were told about Chez Benny. It's not fancy by any means and you do have to order at a counter and bring food to your table. But, our two lunches were very good and we would definitely go back if we're back in town. The service was quite good... More
