A good friend and I had a
A good friend and I had a very enjoyable evening at Gado Gado. Everything was delicious, service was friendly, helpful and attentive. The wine list is brief, but all aelections complimented the food. We were not rushed, and were able to truly enjoy a rare evening out to catch up! Desserts were also very good -- not too sweet or heavy, an ideal ending to a interesting and flavourful meal. I anticipate a return visit!

We absolutely loved it here.
We absolutely loved it here. The staff are very welcoming and helpful. Always with a smile on their faces, they took the time to describe each dish in detail. We ordered the Rijsttafel (tasting menu) and had the opportunity to try many dishes. Highlights were the Rendand Daging (braised beef in coco)and the heavenly Laksha... one of the best things I have ever eaten. I would highly recommend Gado-Gado. We have already made reservations to return for this week!

Friendly restaurant, unique food
This is a great restaurant with a family business feel. The service was efficient and the pacing of food was perfect for an intimate dinner among friends. The unique menu has choices for everyone from reasonable vegetarian/seafood options to meaty dishes such as lamb skewers and their "beef jerky." The gado gado salad was excellent. I had the whole tilapia which was beautifully prepared and plated. The wine menu is small, but of good value. Our riesling paired well with most of the dishes.

Excellent and different!
Went on 2 different occasions and had a great meal both times! Very nice to have a taste of a different asian cuisine!

Excellent Indonesian food
This is a very low-key neighborhood restaurant not far from the Musee de Belles Artes in Montreal. We went with a friend who lived there. It was his first time and he will probably recommend it to others. the food was very good and the service very helpful especially re recommending dishes that weren't too spicy.

Gado Gado recommended!
We went to Gado Gado (Indonesian restaurant in Montreal) for the first time Columbus Day weekend. Though the website indicated that a tasting menu was available, it was not on the restaurant menu. We asked anyway and they were happy to oblige. The tasting menu consisted of 5 courses (I am allergic to shellfish so no seafood involved.) Each course was delicious! I would highly recommend this restaurant for food and service. (We have added it to our go-to restaurants in Montreal!) Some of my favorites: Bakpao Gapit (steamed bun with braised pork belly), sate (lamb and chicken), and Rendang Daging (braised beef). The restaurant's location is easy to get to, right around the corner from the Guy-Concordia metro stop.

What a meal!
When I was in Montreal for work, we all suggested Indian and our boss suggested Indonesian instead since we were all adventurous. It was a great find and a great decision. We ate almost everything except for the duck as it was still marinating. We were there on a Tuesday night and it was dead quiet at first, then 4-5 other tables came in later. Totally reccomended.

Great Indonesian, very reasonable
Very enjoyable. Food had great flavours and priced very reasonably for a downtown restaurant.
Wine list limited, but again, reasonably priced.
Service was a little slow as there were several large parties that arrived just before us.
