If you want to taste a lot of different food for low price, you should take the chicken rice with the expensive "table d'hôte". That way, you will receive a soup, an appetizer, a dessert and the chicken rice for the same price of another main course alone. Beware, the chocolate cake in the table d'hôte is smaller than the...

Incredibly bad and slow service. Our waitress tried to find excuses for not bringing food for more than 40 minutes! It was just incredible, how unprofessional it looked. And for that price, the food couldd have been WAY BETTER. Just value your time and go to a different place!

This BYOB location offers a variety of "asian fusion" options from sushi to thai food. Keep in mind that they do not serve alcohol there, but there is a SAQ just below if you're able to sneak in before it closes

We had dinner at Calao while on holiday in Quebec City, Fusion dishes where excellent, service was friendly and helpful and you can bring your own wine which is convenient because the restaurant is right beside the saq. I would definantly eat here again.
