  • "Best summerlicious ever in 2014!!! I just love every course we ordered:) Will come back for sure! To be honest, best Asian fusion I had ever! (I am an Asian myself)"

  • "Great night with an amazing slaw to start things off. Every bite was an experience."

  • "service is a little rushed. food is very good but the noise level is so loud it is very hard to have a conversation with the person sitting across from you."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "This is my second time at Lee and I have nothing but positive things to say. The service was fantastic and the food was phenomenal. My experience this time was significantly better than the last. That's not to say it was bad last time (it wasn't), but I just felt it was exceptional this time around. The only thing that disappointed me was that I didn't see the panna cotta on the menu! :)"

  • "Dining at Lee was an amazing experience...the food is divine and the service is great!"
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Food came out fast. They had to slow it down and we were not disappointed. Everything was so flavourful. Worth the money."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Went for summerlicious. The cod cake was absolutely delicious. Perfectly moist and fresh although there was too much sirracha mayo, and calamari was a bit tough. My friend got the "fried chicken" which wasn't fried anymore and was grilled, I had a bite and thought it was tough and not moist. We both thought my appetizer was better. For entrees I got the salmon, which was cooked to perfection however the ratatouille was overly sweet (even for me). The beef my friend got was amazingly moist but she only got 2 small pieces! Absurd proportions. Lastly the dessert trio was mediocre. The best of the 3 was the mouse. I feel like for the price we paid, we should've gotten better. But I'll be back to try their regular menu."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "We (group of 4) went for the summlicious menu and came out pretty impressed. We all agreed that we shall be back for their regular menu (mission accomplished Lee! :P)! Their calamari and chicken app was simply amazing! Dessert was also really tasty as well. Their entrees are good but nothing that's out of the world good. Their service was good. A great improvement from the past. While doing my research, I came across several comments regarding their untrained staff. But we all thought that the service was excellent. Mind you, this is a not a high-class French restaurant but the servers were very attentive and tried really hard to impress without any hint of awkwardness. Good job!"

  • "The food was delicious and the size of the servings were good. We shared their famous slaw salad. Amazing flavour and textures. The fried chicken appetizer was very good, maybe a bit too spicy for some. The beef main was very tasty, loved the indian jam. I was less impressed with the dessert trio. The lemon meringue (licorice) was good. The waitress was friendly. The fellow who brought out the food was rude and brought out the appetizer chicken while we were still eating the slaw. Then, he brought the main while we were still eating our appetizers. He said it was too bad because it was ready. The waitress intervened and took care of it. We sat outside which was nice, very noisy inside. I will return but will tell them not to rush."

  • "Two of us ordered different items from Summerlicious menu for sharing - a great way to eat. Crispy Calamari w/Cod Cake & Thai Fried Chicken w/Green Mango & Citrus Salad both absolutely delicious! The amazing sauce/glaze on chicken was so flavourful & very different - yum! Roasted Assam Marinated Salmon also absolutely delicious! Would never have thought to have ratatouille w/salmon, but was perfect in this dish. Black Pepper Marinated Filet of Beef good, but not as creative in flavour as other items chosen. All dishes very attractively plated. Servers okay, but a little stiff - could be friendlier. Made mistake of accepting a table outside at rush hour - traffic noise (loud motorcycles, sirens, etc.), dusty streets & wasps."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "The food and staff at Lee Restaurant were great. We took the waitress' recommendation to order the 19 ingredient signature slaw on top of our Summerlicious menu and were not disappointed. We don' t know how to describe it but everything in it made sense! Highly recommended."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Clearly the kitchen was overwhelmed - not much more the server could do than periodically apologize. Food was OK but lost in the wait"
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "The feta-watermelon appetizer was supremely delicious as was the quinoa pesto."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "Great service, great food, very busy so the noise level was high, but not annoying. And the air conditioning was working very well."

  • "good for an enthusiastic foodie who loves a little flash and a lot of flavor."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "Restaurant full which makes sense as every morsel of food was amazing not cheapened as summerlicious menus often are."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "As always, Susur Lee's food was incredible and the service amazing. The food is like nothing I could cook at home - exactly what dining out should be!"

  • " Everything was good. The only downfall was our server. Was tempted to ask to move to a different station."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "This was a very special first day dinner of the S2014. Having followed Susur Lee in Toronto right from the beginning I could not miss since I am going to Paris today. Food was top class service by Olivia was outstanding particularly her selection of the Sake and the Martini coffee. Hope to go again."

  • "Another great food experience by Master Chef, Susur Lee. The signature slaw was just the beginning of this food adventure. A fabulous place for getting together and sharing the food and memories with friends."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "We have dined here at Lee several times the food and service is always excellent. You pay a little more for your meal and the prices for the wines are a little crazy but the dining experience is worth it....and there is always a new flavour experience!"
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Second time here. Made sure to dine here for our Toronto holiday"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Even after all these years, the food is amazing! My favourite place while travelling to Toronto. Never tire of it!"
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "This was my first time at Lee! Really Good. The salada with 19 ingredients was delicious. For 3 people choose 3 option plus a dessert and you will be fine. It's pricy but worth every bite! The service is good, however our server was not that good. I will be back next time to taste other courses."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "Four guests shared a variety of dishes, all of which were truly excellent. The slaw (of course) to start followed by caramelized cod that was stunningly well prepared, an unusual but delicious poached lobster dish served in cocktail glasses (extra to menu) and simply amazing green curry. We followed with a couple of desserts (peanut chocolate and rhubarb tart). Susur visited the adjacent table and we were able to personally pass on our satisfaction. This was second visit and both were outstanding. Made our lifetime top 5. Our California guests were very impressed."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "Waiter kept pouring water without or knowledge for a grand total of 5 bottles at 56.00!!! The waiter was robotic. Every line rehearsed. We felt rushed, we felt cheated."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "The service was amazing at Lee, all servers helping at all tables. And eh food was to die for, as expected. Susur really knows how to build a restaurant and change with the times."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Don't miss the signature salad made with 19 ingredients or the lobster ravioli. My only issue with the restaurant was the noise level...we could barely hear each other, but mostly we were expressing delight with the wonderful food that was served with expert timing. Our table of 5 shared 8 or 9 dishes (and they brought out 5 portions when they would normally serve only 4) and they were served one at a time. We didn't have long waits between the dishes."

  • "The Singapore Slaw keeps us going back there again and again!"
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "excellent restaurant- loved the ambience, food, and staff!!"
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "Excellent food. Service was very friendly and informative. A little strange having 4 or 5 different people serving you. Ambience is cool but room is quite loud. Only annoying thing was being being sat next to DJ booth. Although the music was great, it got quite busy with people constantly hanging around."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "I have been here several months ago and gave them a rave review..quality,service,presentation all have reduced since then.Prices have not however!. Dinner for 4 was over $600.00 with tip. Pretty excessive considering almost every dish for vegetarian was a deep fried. There was a RUSHED atmosphere where the waiter hurried us through. The DJ was extremely loud and difficult to talk through (they are forgetting people are going to a high priced restaurant to talk with the people who came with them, not to listen to an unknown DJ.)I wanted earlier reservations as wanted to dine earlier,however could not get a table.When I got there,there was MANY tables available.So confirmed guest is not as important as a "possible walk in". I wont return."

  • "Food was obviously really good. Our waiter (mark) was perfect. Right on top if things from beginning to end which really helped make our dining experience even better."

  • "My girlfriend and I both enjoyed the mussels but the signature Singapore Slaw was mind blowing with 19 different elements it had to one of the best dishes we've had the pleasure of eatting. Also the services was excellent not to over bearing but still attentive"
