The new Waterworks building location for chef Susur Lee’s King West icon mirrors his menu’s old-new balancing act, pairing vintage and contemporary decor.

    One of the most memorable meals we've had to date! The Singapore Slaw was as delicious as it was artistic. Tofu tacos were shockingly good and scallops with lobster bisque was out of this world.

    An excellent dining experience! This was our second visit because we were so impressed with the first a couple of months ago. The impressive service began when we were escorted to our reserved table, but realizing that we may have been a little cramped, (family of 4 with son and hubby both over 6 ft) the Maitre’d asked us to choose a table we preferred. We didn’t have to ask. The excellent service continued with our sever Connor and the other attendants who brought drinks and dishes to our table; cleared and changed our dinnerware and wiped the table after each course. I couldn’t remember all the names but they were fantastic. Special shout out to Jessica who was our server during our first visit. She made excellent menu recommendations and was a big influence in our desire to return to Lee’s. And last but not least, speaking of the menu……..absolutely delectable! We’ve decided that we’ll keep returning until we’ve tried every choice on the menu. And then start over! But the slaw and the cheeseburger spring rolls will have to be staples. They’re signature dishes for a reason. Love the fact that the dishes are made for sharing - and the price points are very reasonable. Allows for variety. The ambience was lovely. Music was tasteful and audible but not overbearing. We were able to have a conversation without difficulty hearing one another. With all things taken into consideration, Lee’s is not cheap, but you definitely get better value in comparison to some other neighboring restaurants. The prices are still very reasonable and worth every penny. All in all, dinner at Lee’s was a wonderful dining experience across the board! I would highly recommend it!

    This way our first time at the new location. This location has taken a very modern twist while still keeping the exponential food, taste drinks, and great overall atmosphere. The lighting has improved, and the noise level (while still energetic) was not as over whelming as the old location. I’m excited to see the vibe in the summer season. We will be back :)

    Unbelievably good experience here. The food was amazing, service was amazing, and the ambiance of the whole restaurant was just perfect. Not so loud that you can’t hear the person beside you, and not so quiet that you can hear the next table. This is “overall” the best restaurant I’ve been to in Toronto. And order the slaw, it’s worth it!

    I disappointing experience from when I first came when they opened. The Gyoza was over fried. Aziz, the cheeseburger things. The slaw was great. The supervisor waitress. A shorter black girl was pushy. I found and not welcoming. The waiters instead of being actors actresses, that animated talked about the Singapore slower very difficult to understand and a heavy Indian accent. They were very pleasant but clearly there's no point in describing the things when you can't understand what they're saying because it's so loud and they are talking in heavy accents. I'll be back but not soon.

    This is signature Lee - all the greatest hits are on the menu. I found the signature slaw to be sweeter than I remember. Still amazing balance of textures and crunch and colours etc, but perhaps a bit overdressed. Rack of lamb was OK... it was served rare which is OK.. but I saw other tables with it served medium rare and that would have been my preference (I was not asked, nor was the other table). On the side was a cauliflower and broccoli creation with cheese - it was underseasoned and overcooked. The onion bhaji garnish I suspect was cooked earlier and reheated -- it was quite difficult to chew and disappointing as I love crispy fried onions but they have to be done a la minute. Service was good, satays were delicious, the black sesame creme brulee was unexpectedly tasty and the black cod was excellent, but served with an unidentified side veg.. was it a turnip? Could not make out what it was, but it had a cloying / sticky mouth feel and did not really elevate the cod. Overall it was good, with some highs and some mediums, no lows. Interior design was unique, front of house was engaging and welcoming.

    This was our third visit, bringing our two friends. The food and service at Lee's is always superb. The knowledge from the staff around the dishes, ingredients and drinks is always fun to experience. I love the signature dishes, slaw, cheese burger spring rolls and the French tongs are all must haves, whenever we dine into Lee's Restaurant.
