    A top-notch dining experience, from the service to the food and the ambiance. I’d go back again and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to try out Asian fusion restaurants in the city. One of the best restaurants, hands down.

    This was our 2nd time to Lee at this location. It was great to go to a restaurant where the service, food quality matched the price justification. Since COVID we noticed a significant decline where the service has been really awful and the food hit or miss. Here however, there were real professionals on hand. The waiter knew the menu and many of the other staff walked by to check in as well. I had the famous slaw and it did not disappoint from the 1st time I had it 10 years ago and never forgot it. Everything we had was delicious. If you like multilayers of flavour, this is the place for you. We saw Chef Lee in the restaurant and I think that must make a difference to the quality of the food and service we received.

    I decided to try Lee Restaurant for the first time to celebrate my boyfriends birthday. The experience was just OKAY to me. Nothing memorable, and I think I wouldn’t come back. The food was pretty basic in terms of flavour, nothing totally extravagant and over the top. The only exception is that the Singapore Slaw was amazing. This is the only thing on the menu that wowed me that night. Otherwise, the scallop/chorizo dish was pretty basic (slightly salty), and the braised beef dish was pretty standard too. No complaints..just basic for small portions and expensive for what it is. The waitress told us that the portions were really big and meant for sharing a crowd of 3-4 people. We were surprised when we were informed this because we were able to finish our dishes with no leftovers (no we are not fat lol). In terms of dessert, we were recommended this signature dumpling style/Ferraro Roché dish that was apparently a fan favourite (sounds delicious on paper). Super disappointing and was not tasty at all. I mentioned this to one of the managers and she didn’t even offer to replace the dessert or at least take it off the bill. The dessert for birthday celebrations was nasty too. I would skip out on eating sweets here from my experience. Lastly, the atmosphere was really dark (not sure if that’s your vibe) and the tables were small and crowded. I didn’t really enjoy this for a 6 pm dinner. I’ve been to a lot of restaurants around Toronto so I have been impressed in the past, maybe I’m just being picky! Presentation I would give a 10/10 Again, nothing particularly BAD but nothing special.

    It's been a while since we visited a Susur Lee restaurant and he still doesn't disappoint. The food was excellent and the service very good. We chose to order all small plates (slaw, crispy tofu, bao, tuna ceviche, all portions quite generous) and enjoyed every dish. The noise level was a little highand we hope the new location might help moderate that. We can't wait to check it out.

    Other than the salad Lee is famous for, the food I’ve had has been less than stellar. We tried a dish at the recommendation of our waiter and not only was it cold and kind of chewy, but it was way more expensive than the waiter told us when the bill arrived. The restaurant management wasn’t too eager to make that right for us.

    Absolutely outstanding service and food as always. One of the best parts of every visit to Lee is not only ordering our favorites (like the cheeseburger spring rolls and Singapore slaw) but experiencing their chef's creation of the day to truly experience a unique culinary experience. Cannot wait to visit again at their new location later this year!
