Respond to Review of Yuan Vegetarien
Review: could be a pricey experience when you do not choose your dishes carefully. My wife and I went to this restaurant on our first evening in Montreal, Quebec. It has a nice decor and has some non-food items for sale at the display counter. I ordered the wonton soup ($3.00) and pad thai(7.99) for my main. My wife ordered the sticky rice ($2.50) and the small vegetarian "meat" platter ($14.95)- which turned out to be really really ... really small. My wonton soup was good although a bit more in the wonton catagory would have been nice (only 3 very very small wontons were in the soup). The Pad Thai was a good portion. I also had the free tea which was ok. They used tea-bags though. My wife's platter of vegetarian "meats" included deep fried (yet cold) tofu leaves, 3 extremely thin slices of cold mock ham, cold algae, 2 types of maki,pink ginger sheets, quite a bit of lettuce (unfortunately a lot of noticable wilted dark edges and dark folds were present which should not have been included with the lettuce) and a blob of wasabi. It would have been nice to have a choice for the dip. More variety in this dish would have been better (they don't include their pork, fish, etc. there). The lettuce upon which everything was laid took up too much of the volume. The sticky rice was good according to my wife although I still have fond memories of the sticky rice I had in Thailand which was cooked in bamboo cylinders along the road sides. That tasty treat has perhaps ruined me for trying other sticky rice. Summary: do not order the meat platter and you'll have good value for your money. (We looked at the other tables, some dishes were of big portions ). All in all around 33 CND (after taxes and before gratuity).
