Lee Restaurant is thrilled to be opening our patio for dining. As we are permitted to operate only at half-capacity we ask our guests for patience and understanding when booking reservations. Our maximum party size is 6.

We will be featuring a significantly revised menu (don't worry, the Singaporean Style Slaw is still available!), so some favorites have been reimagined or temporarily removed. Details can be found at www.LeeRestaurant.com.

Reservations will be limited to 1.5hrs for parties of 2, 2hrs for parties of 4, and 2.5hrs for parties of 6. As we are not permitted to allow indoor waiting please ensure that you arrive on time.

To protect each other from COVID-19, if you are exhibiting symptoms or have been in contact with an infected person we ask that you cancel your reservation. While here, you are required to take basic precautions such as socially distancing yourself from non-party members and washing your hands.

See you soon!

I never leave reviews, but I had such a disappointing experience I thought it was important to share. We arrived for a 9:45pm reservation and were told upon arriving we had six minutes to order. Within the next six minutes, we had a waiter come up to us twice pressuring us to order and then her superior when we still had not decided in four minutes. We were told the food would take 30 minutes, which is why they were rushing us to make sure we could enjoy before the 11:30pm close, but in reality the food arrived in 10 minutes, and it was clear that certain staff wanted to leave early.

In addition, we were seated at a table near the loud bar next door. When we asked to switch to an open table further away, we were told “10 feet wouldn’t make a difference.”

The food was okay, but it was definitely overpriced with the level of service you receive here. We had read such great food reviews and were excited to dine here for a member of our party’s birthday, making it an even more disappointing experience. The only redeeming quality was the waiter we were re-assigned who tried to make up for his coworkers.

To summarize, I do not believe Lee is worth the price, but if you still want to pay, I recommend you do not book for a 9:45pm reservation slot, which shouldn’t exist in the first place, if you want to be treated with an ounce of good service.

Went for my birthday dinner and it truly never disappoints. We had the signature slaw, cheeseburger spring rolls and the braised beef. All delicious and well worth it.

We were a party of 6 , the tables were too small to accommodate the food plates and cups so we were squished , plus the table was positioned right in the sun where we were all dripping so not really enjoying the ambiance or the food we wanted to eat and leave asap( and outdoor fan would have helped )

We eat at Lee a lot, and the food is awesome. This time however the service was extraordinarily bad. Susur Lee was around, and shouting at his employees. He was standing like a hawk watching everything with a frown. The staff was extremely tense and unfriendly because of this. It was a very unpleasant dinner. You don’t go to a restaurant just for food quality but also for the whole experience. Lee was very disappointing this time.

I was the first to arrive within a group of 5 to celebrate a girlfriend’s birthday. When I proceeded to order (1) dish for the table, (the ladies were simply parking their vehicles) our waiter Devon. A highly suggested that I wait in a rather obnoxious tone. I overlooked it and decided to wait for the rest of my group. Once settled, our table was not checked on for quite some time before Devon returned to take our orders. While completing that task, I asked him if he received all the orders from everyone and rather than verbally confirming the orders placed, he spewed a frank “Yes, I got it” before heading to the station to punch our orders in. The entire exchange was rather insensitive and seemingly rushed—a complete lack of hospitality. Needless to say, once our dinner had arrived, the orders were incomplete and/or incorrect which Devon did not rectify (since he was checking in on our table between excruciatingly long intervals), rather, the discrepancy was corrected by another lovely waitress who took the liberty of attending to us. Overall, the experience was terrible. I personally had a very negative experience with Lee’s during my own birthday some few months prior and thus will not be returning to this establishment.

I really enjoyed the ambiance and service was exceptional. Food was ok. I got the Roasted curry chicken which lacked seasoning , we kept getting told by everyone to try the slaw, which was really expensive for a huge plate of slaw with peanuts. To me not worth the price. Hot and Sour soup was my favorite. Overall cute for date night, but that's about it.

The oysters were not fresh, almost spoiled. I'm a seafood person. So never order oysters here. I got sick. The rest of the food was just ok, lack of flavours. We were celebrating a birthday. They gave us a cake which was nice but they never asked if we were celebrating something we had to tell them. I had high expectations about this place but I'm disappointed that I choose it for a birthday.

Always a great meal - I chose the tasting menu this time and it was lovely (Susur, who was in the restaurant, signed the tasting menu so that was very cool)! I haven't been to Lee in quite a while and it did not disappoint! I will definitely return again soon.

We had the Tasting menu and wine accompaniment. It was terrific. My guests were global high end travellers and were very impressed. That’s hard to do these days.

I have been four or five times now over the years and it’s always special !

Another epic experience at Lee! There are dishes here that just cannot be replicated anywhere .. when you are craving the Slaw or the Duck pancakes there is only one solution. Also: Nice that bringing kids / teens is never discouraged. 13 + 17 year old budding foodies love this place too!

The food and service was wonderful of course but we were packed in right in a corner. Three of us had to stand up away from the table to let the other two people out...
