Change of opening hours.
We have seen a big increase of customers recently after we were voted best Chinese restaurant in Montreal and even with more staff, we still saw longer wait time for our customers and we are running low on our food materials daily. In order to keep and improve the quality we have to shorten the opening hours to make sure we are well prepared. We had to make a last minute decision to close the restaurant for few hours or a day in the past few days. We tried to inform our customers by our Facebook page and website. Some customers who did not see our Facebook page or website still stopped by and could not get in. We did try to contact all the reservations made for the time of closing but some of them did not leave call back. We are really sorry for this inconvenience.
The new schedule will be from 11AM to 3PM and from 5PM to 10PM every day. If we change the hours we will communicate through our website and Facebook page.
For reservation we recommend our customers to reserve from our website and leave your phone number in case we need to contact for the schedule change.

Something about Chinese restaurant
If you have tried some Chinese food already you can take a step further for some authentic Chinese dishes. Follow us and you will learn how to order and enjoy authentic Chinese food.
Before all, you need to know that having a meal for Chinese people is like having an event and is about sharing a moment with friends and/or family. For example, Chinese people used the time of a meal to have serious talks. For a group of four people, Chinese people would usually order four or five different dishes to share with everybody. Instead of having individual portion, everybody would share the four or five dishes with steam rice, stir fry rice or noodle as a side dish. This way of dining has been in Chinese cuisine traditions for thousands of years.
As utensils, chopsticks and a bowl (of rice) are a must have. Traditionally people would use the same chopsticks to eat their food and pick food from the share dish plate to their own bowl. For hygiene purposes that lifestyle has changed and nowadays, in China, more and more restaurants provide a serving spoon or serving chopsticks per share dish.
In some Chinese provinces especially in the south, people used to drink soup before having the main course. Recently this tradition has spread all over China.
Chinese food takes pride on the perfect cooking of the chef. By theory, the flavor and taste of the dish should be the best coming out of the chef’s skills. So no extra sauce is needed when the food is served. You are not supposed to add sauce; otherwise it is kind of a slight to the chef. Also, if you add your own sauce, the flavor will unbalance and presentation will be ruined.
Since for the same dish, the cooking of different chefs may produce different flavor, we recommend our customers to taste our chef’s cooking mastery without adding sauce.
For generations Chinese people used to drink liquor called Bai Jiu along with their meal. However, since globalization, at Chinese people’s dining table, you will often see wine or beer instead of Bai Jiu. In Montreal, you will barely see any Chinese liquor in SAQ, if you do they will be very expensive. At Cuisine AuntDai you can bring your own wine and beer since we have the license.
For some customers, the ingredients in Chinese dishes are a concern since Chinese cooking uses lots of different spices. The main concerns are spicy dishes, peanut butter, starch, and MSG. At Cuisine AuntDai, we do not use MSG at all. To address all these concerns, Cuisine AuntDai discloses all ingredients used for each dish, as well as their recipe. You will find all the information at the website www.auntdai.com.
Lastly, fortune cookie is an invention of North America! In China, most restaurants do not offer any fortune cookies, so do Cuisine AuntDai. We have full respect for Chinese food and ensure that our customers will enjoy authentic Chinese food and priceless Chinese cuisine tradition.
