Dragon House restaurant (long gone) - chefs still around?

Does anyone here remember The Dragon House (Maison du Dragon) restaurant?

It was a Chinese food restaurant that had been around probably close to 40 years when it closed for good in the early 2000's. It was located in Cartierville, in a small strip mall on De Salaberry, not far from where Belmont Park was. Here's where they were on Google maps:

Throughout my childhood my family and I would eat there regularly or order take-out from them (late 70's through late 80's). One thing I specifically remember was their pineapple chicken. It was crunchy, with red sauce and this tangy taste, which to this day, I've yet to find anything close to matching. Also loved their egg rolls, plum sauce and chicken-fried rice, also pretty unique tasting.

Now this has been on my mind ever since they closed.....is it possible their chef(s) or recipes have lived on at another Montreal restaurant? Anyone even remember this restaurant besides me? :)
