Once the flagship of "tuxedo Chinese" dining in Montreal, Le Chrysantheme is still in the front rank of sophisticated, upscale Chinese restaurants.
The menu emphasizes Szechuan and other non-Cantonese fare, like won-ton ravioli in hot ginger sauce ($6.80). Don't miss the "shredded" lamb with hot spicy sauce ($12.50). But don't believe the menuif you want any dish really spicy, you need to tell the waiter so.
