Interesting food, good flavors...owner waited on us and cooked our food to order...good experience
I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes.
Portions a bit small for the price, but overall the food was very delicious and had a lot of variety! Only had two servers for the night and was a bit slow.
Definietely recommend the place. We were nicely welcomed. Their beef is very nice and their service was perfect.
I had dinner at Gado Gado with my wife but unfortunately it was a disappointing experience and we do not intend to go back. The waiter was not friendly and the food was not particularly good. Not much ambiance either.
This central Montreal Indonesian has good food and service in a somewhat understated setting. We had the rijstafel equivalent and it doesn't compare to a rijstafel in Europe. It was far more bland and in general the flavors were not as interesting. Our server was very pleasant and attentive, but would not go out of my way to go here again.
Food was ok. So not bad and not wow. Just fair, or a little bit over. Is a fair price as well.
A good indonesian restaurant is hard to find. This one is simple and plain but the food is very good and authentic. Very good value.
On charming McKay Street, up a staircase to a little gem of a restaurant. The menu offers an interesting assortment of Indonesian dishes for all tastes and palates, and prices are very reasonable. The staff is courteous and attentive and takes the time to help diners make their selection. The Redang Daging (braised beef) is to die for. And say "yes" to a dessert of steamed rice cake - a light, delicate finish to the meal.
Went with friends and had different dishes which were all very good!
Delicious discovery in the midst of downtown. Traditional indonesian food to satisfy any palate! Reservation recommended.
Food was great, service was attentive, and nice ambiance. Definitely go back again!
Having lived in South East Asia we were excited to find an Indonesian restaurant in Montreal. We were looking forward to the unforgettable flavors of the region. However, Gado Gado falls short of living up to this sensation. The food was very bland with an overemphasis on things being deep fried, making the food greasy and unappealing. The most disappointing was one of our favorite Indonesian dishes Beef Rendang. The meat was a little tough for rendang and the taste of coconut overpowering the dish. The waiter was friendly and it was amazing to see him take care of every table in a full restaurant all by himself.
We were expecting a variety of flavors, dishes, and styles comparable to other Indonesian restaurants I have dined at in places like New York, London, and Amsterdam. We had a large group and ordered one of almost everything on the not very extensive menu. A few dishes were excellent, particularly the appetizers, but most were just OK. The Chicken stay and lamb stew were fairly bland and uninspired. Prices were reasonable and the service was fine, but it was just not the ethnic culinary experience we were looking for. And the place was dingy and hard to find. Signage was confusing.
Awesome food and Indonesian specialties.
The steamed buns are good. The Pangsit Goreng (fried chicken dumplings) are yummy, and personally, I think they should serve six of these per order.
Had the Bakmie Goreng (noodles, shrimp, chicken, vegetables), but my husband's Lontong Sayur (curry dish with tofu, egg, vegetables) was very flavorful. We need to go back for the tasting menu.
If you work downtown, go for lunch, but order quickly. They don't have many servers and the food is fresh, so it takes a while to make.
