Oh, Korean food. Where do I even begin to express how delicious Korean food is? Korean BBQ, Bibimbap, Katsu, Tteokbokki - it's just a whole world of mouthwatering delicacies. And you know what the best part is? Montreal is full of top notch restaurants in which to experience the awesomeness. If you need some ideas, don't sweat it. Read on for the Best Montreal Korean Restaurants 2015.
The first thing you might notice about GaNaDaRa is the lineup outside. Trust me on this one, friends: wait the lineup. It’s a testament to how awesome GaNaDaRa truly is - and the tasty, fresh, amazing treasures inside are more than worth the wait. Literally everything is delicious, so if I were to start recommending dishes, we’d be here all day. Their Chicken Cheese Katsu and Salmon Rocket dishes, though? They deserve a standing ovation.
2. Haru Hana
Who likes shrimp buns? (We like shrimp buns). And luckily, the shrimp buns at Haru Hana are so delicious they'll legit make you break out into song and dance. Not down for shrimp? Don't worry. Haru Hana's menu is so varied and delicious that you'll be on cloud nine after trying any one of their delectable Korean dishes.
3. Shabu Shabu
Looking for an absolute fun time? Look no further. Although Shabu Shabu boasts delicious Korean dishes (S/O to their life changing Bulgogi), their atmosphere absolutely cannot be beat. Let's just say karaoke, Korean food, and simulation golf are a top notch combination.
Photo cred - DaWa
DaWa specializes in Korean-style fried chicken, and let me tell you, they do it amazingly well. Crisp, juicy, and downright delicious, there's absolutely no way you can go wrong with a chicken feast from DaWa. Bonus points for their awesome service and super friendly atmosphere, too.
5. Mon Ami
Another restaurant that specializes in Korean style chicken, Mon Ami gets all the points for their on-point oven chicken (their succulent chicken with sweet sauce is so, so delicious), although their non-chicken dishes are super fresh and tasty as well. Go try Mon Ami, my friends, and hold back tears of pure happiness as you do.
6. Kimbob Cafe
OMG, all the yums. Kimbob is a delicious Korean eatery in Dorval. In addition to having some of the most delicious Beef Saute in existence, Kimbob also offers a mouthwatering breakfast menu. Protip: try their fried ice cream. Thank me later.
Friendly staff? Check. Delicious, legit food? Check. A welcoming, unpretentious atmosphere? Check. All of this makes Kantapia one of the best Korean restaurants thus far, but if you really want to seal the deal? Try their beef Kimbap, which is sort of like a Korean version of sushi. So. Much. Awesomeness.
Two words: OMG, Bibimbap. Okay, that was actually one word and an acronym. But still, those are pretty much the only words you'll be able to form once trying the awesome food at Négasake. Although their Bibimbap is particularly amazing, don't let that pigeonhole you. All of their food is super top notch, and super affordable. Which means that there are no wrong decisions - and also means you're more than free to go beast.

9. 5000 Ans
Hey, friend, in the mood for some Korean BBQ? Of course you are. Oh, what’s that, you are but your eating partner isn’t? Don’t sweat it. 5000 Ans has got your back. Featuring a menu of delicious, legit Korean food (their Yukke dish can holler at me any time), items to share, and a special section of Korean BBQ, you really cannot go wrong paying 5000 Ans a visit.
10. Restaurant Makoto
Craving Korean? Well, yeah, of course you are. But are you with someone who's also craving Japanese? Well, don't sweat it if you are, because Makoto's here to save the day. Serving up delicious Korean and Japanese dishes, Makoto's figured out how to make pretty much everyone happy. S/O to their homemade Kimchi, though. So, so good.
