Best Butter Chicken In Montreal

Creamy, tender, flavourful dishes.

Honestly, I'll never forget the first time I tried butter chicken. My aunt brought it for us for a family reunion when I was super young, and from that moment, I was legit hooked on this creamy, bursting-with-flavour dish.

Since then, I've also been searching for the ultimate, perfect plate of butter chicken in Montreal. Not going to lie, I've actually discovered that there's no such thing as the ultimate butter chicken dish... because every dish of butter chicken is delicious in its own way. However, there are a few that stand out in the city.
