You have to know what to order: yes, as noted below, their take on a matzah ball soup is pretty awful. It wouldn't pass muster at my family's seder, I can tell you that. On the other hand, their hamburgers are justifiably lauded, their fried chicken good (ask for their sweet sauce on the side, not drizzled, as it tends to dominate the taste, I find), and their sweet potato pie a solid choice. Nice breakfasts, too.

I you like overly sweet and oily this is the place for you. I would not go back. The portions are small and the sweetness factor of the kormas and the butter chicken were enough to give my sweettooth a headache. The shirmp bhoona and the eggplant bhaji were good but the rest was not.

Nouveau Palais is our Montreal "go to"Restaurant. Had our most recent meal tuesday June 11 for my daughters graduation from University. As usual, the staff was very welcoming, the space is very casual, and the customers cover every demographic. Food is always solid, some highlights were the Spaetzle with Ramps, Pea's and Cheese, the mussels were so fresh, clean, and the Garlic Broth is alway's perfect, get extra bread for dunking! Zucchini Fritters with house made Catsup is always a winner as is the Iceberg with Blue Cheese and Bacon. The Palace Burger is one of the best Burgers in the City, there must be some short rib in it, because it's just so tender, and it was cooked perfectly, which, as a person in the industry, realize the perfectly cooked burger is actually pretty difficult. Cookies and Milk, Sweet Potato Pie, and Chocolate Pudding are the comfort desserts we love! Solid Wine and Beer list and owners that care about customer service all combine for a great experience every time. Thank you Jacques, MM and Gita for running a great operation!

We went through a lot to try out this recommendation by Top Chef's Gail Simmons on our last might in MTL. What a letdown. :(( The staff was very nice and welcoming, the menu appeared interesting and they were nice to my kid. The matzo ball soup was not good, burgers were mediocre, fries & spaetzle were good. Not worth the hype, the journey to get there or the final tab. One good thing is that it introduced us to the Mile-End neighborhood and the great nearby Italian Dispensa. (Maybe it's our own fault for going to an American reataurant in Quebec....)
