Best Korean BBQ In Montreal

Get ready to eat.
Best Korean BBQ In Montreal

Nothing quite like getting together with a big group of friends to feast and dine like kings and queens. The problem is: many restaurants just don't have the space to accommodate big groups, and eating your own dish when you're with a big group of people just feels a little sad. It's all about family style.

That's why Korean BBQ is one of the best types of restaurants to get together with a big group of friends. There is no fuss, or issues splitting the bill at the end because the meal is a flat rate, and the menu is all you can eat, baby.

We've picked out the best Korean BBQ spots in the city, and we also threw in a few of the best Korean joints - for good measure. So, if you're a lover of everything Korean, this list is for you!

8. Seoul Chako

Where: 1824 St-Catherine West // Downtown

Why you should go: This downtown spot is probably the most well-known of the entire list considering its central location and proximity to Concordia campus. It's a base price and all-you-can-eat menu. Drinks are cheap, too. In other words, it's awesome.


7. Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ

Where: 1255 Crescent Street // Downtown

Why you should go: Ok, this spot is technically a Japanese BBQ, but I figured those who love the whole BBQ at your table experience will appreciate this recommendation. The quality of the food is amazing and the ambiance is too. The perfect spot for a birthday celebration.


6. Mon Ami Korean BBQ

Where: 6290 Somerled Av // Montreal West

Why you should go: The best in the West. This Montreal West Korean BBQ spot is made for feasting. Well known for their fried chicken, this place is a must-try for all West siders.


5. Kalbi BBQ

Where: 1017 Saint-Laurent // Downtown

Why you should go: This China Town BBQ spot has Korean dishes as well as Japanese. You can pay a flat rate for the all you can eat menu, and the alcohol is affordable.


4. Sota Korean BBQ

Where: 1825 St-Catherine West // Downtown

Why you should go: This downtown spot has a more intimate vibe than some of the other massive Korean BBQ spots like Seoul Chako right next door. The food and prices are just as friendly though.


3. Shabu Shabu

Where: 6180 Rue Saint-Jacques // Montreal West

Why you should go: Shabu Shabu is a bit of a hidden gem. It's located on industrial Saint-Jacques street on the west side of the city. This massive restaurant looks very unassuming from the outside, but once inside you will understand why it's such a highly rated spot. Last time I went they also had Karaoke rooms at the back. Can't get much better than that!


2. Bol Orange

Where: 983 Boulv Decarie // Ville Saint Laurent

Why you should go: While this spot doesn't have a BBQ plate in the tables like the other places on this list, it's considered one of the best Korean Restaurants in the city. With a slightly off-the-grid location in Ville St-Laurent, it's totally worth the drive or metro commute. It's right next to Metro Cotes Vertu anyways, so no excuses. Look at those photos!


1. Chez Bong

Where: 1021 Bould Saint-Laurent // China Town

@bean_meatembedded via

Why you should go: Chez Bong also doesn't have a hot plate in the middle of the table like other BBQ spots, but this Korean classic deserved a spot on the list because of how long it's been around. This little basement resto gets lively on the weekends. And is the perfect spot to introduce someone to Korean food.
