“My favorite resto in Montreal”
Reviewed 25 December 2012

And the Shredded Pork with Garlic sauce is my favorite dish in Montreal. I've eaten here at least half a dozen times and never been disappointed.

“Spicy but not tasty”
Reviewed 6 October 2011

Really disappointed after reading all the hype about this restaurant. We ordered the won ton soup, dumpling in peanut sauce, sesame beef, salt crispy shrimp and spicy chicken plate. Only the shrimp disk is worth the money. I have had better wonton and dumpling at other cheap eats nearby. The sesame beef is totally blank. The spicy chicken plate is very salty, very spicy and the flavor is overpowered by too much anise seeds.

Schezuan cuisine is supposed to be spicy, tasty and flavorful. Too bad the balance is not there at Niu Kee.

“Hands down my FAVE asian resto in Montreal”
Reviewed 23 February 2011

These are spices you have never experienced. Not burn your tongue off hot, but tingling pepper corn spice that resonates all night long. I've eaten there about 10 times and always walk away feeling happy and satisfied. We rave about it constantly to our friends.
If you love spicy foods that are not typical asian fare, Niu Kee is for you.

“Bloody awful... so many better places close by.”
Reviewed 2 September 2010

Avoid this place unless you like stomach cramps. The food could be better but the food poisoning is what lasts. I've been there twice with the same result.
