  • "Food is always excellent.... everytime i visit the restaurant, I can't wait to go again The only thing I do not like isthe tables are so close togehter, its like u can pick off the other persons plate."

  • "Really great food as ever (mmm the coleslaw....), but too noisy."

  • "Went to Lee recently for my birthday, and was upgraded to the semi-private dining room free of charge. Our server was very knowledgeable and made great recommendations. All of the dishes were very flavourful and beautifully presented. A few were spicier than expected which was not specified on the menu. The room was a bit cold, but it was much quieter than the front dining room. We were stuffed by the end of the meal and decided against dessert. However they still surprised me with a sweet plate that had happy birthday written in chocolate and flower petal decorations. That definitely made my night more special. I will definitely be back to try the other dishes, and would highly recommend this establishment to all my friends in the future."

  • "Food is amazing, service is great. Can't wait to go back for the Singapore Slaw!"

  • "Unfortunately they forgot the birthday we were celebrating. Tables are too close together. In regards to the food it started off well and them gradually digressed. Very expensive for what the meal was."
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "This is a nice restaurant with outstanding service. Every staff member went above and beyond and provided great service, even in a very busy restaurant. The food was good, and the location in great. The restaurant is currently under renovation, so some of the regular ambience was lost, but they have managed to keep things nice."

  • "Seating was tight and I did not feel very comfortable with other diners so close beside. Space tables further apart."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "As expected the food was good but the price is a little high for what is on menu. Very few wine choices below 70$."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "What seems like small portions, are actually quite filling. We can see why Cole Slaw is a house favourite. Amazing. Beef spring rolls were great! Braised ribs and Cod also excellent"
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "This is maybe my 4th time at Lee's. The food is always great. I wish he had delivery, or a cook book. I miss that food."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "The Singapore slaw is not to be missed. I had the beef entry, and it, too, was spectacular."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "Food at Lee was wonderful. Imaginative, full of depth of flavour and simply in a category of its own. We loved the slaw, and quinoa/mushroom risotto, as well as the blackened cod. The drinks did not match the food and were overpriced. The wines were superb. The servers were professional and competent, but we felt as if they were working from a badly written script. They were patronizing (ensuring we do things on time, rather than having a great experience), offering unnecessary information (telling a vegetarian that a dish is gluten free is nonsensical - many vegetarians eat high gluten diets as it is high in protein), and not offering important information (about size of dishes) is unfortunate. It turns perfect evening into less pleasant."

  • "The overall experience of this dinner was outstanding. Our reservation time was adhered to, the wait staff stellar and the food was absolutely delicious. We would come back again and highly recommended it to everyone."
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "The food is amazing and so is the service. It's pretty expensive but totally worth the splurge."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "Amazing Experience! The sharing style menu is perfect to try many dishes and flavours. The staff is very friendly and Knowledgeable. We felt like we were pampered without having to dine in a stuffy atmosphere, we were still able to relax and enjoy our fabulous dishes and wine. This is a must go to restaurant in Toronto!"

  • "I'm from Quebec city and you're my favorite restaurant. I recommend you to my friends"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "We had the 7 course tasting menu with wine pairing. The service was well timed and wine went well with the dishes. The slaw was outstanding. The scallop and shrimp dish was amazing. The black cod was melt in your mouth. Very nice was the fact the chef came out and wished my husband a happy birthday and chatted about the food."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "Great creative and yummy dishes that no "regular" restaurant would be serving. The staff is very professional and amazing. The food comes out really fast and is fresh, hot and the presentation is spot on!! Give it a two thumbs up!! The wait staff even explains to you what you are eating...loved that."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "The only thing wrong with the menu at LEE is trying to choose! Chef LEE offers the most creative dishes with brilliant flavour combinations. A party of 2 should choose 3-4 items for sharing. Reasonable prices and substantial proportions with an excellent selection of good wines by the glass, a rare bonus. We were glad to have an early seating - it got a little zooey at 8:30 when most of the tables turn-over. Servers were extremely polite, knowledgeable and attentive right up until it was jam-packed with an indoor line-up. Can't wait to go back for more lamb, duck and the out of this world slaw!"
    Dined on 3/3/2014
  • "Food was out of this World! Staff was very knowledgeable & fantastic. Noisy restaurant but where we were by the kitchen (table 15), the noise was greatly reduced. Entrance was tight, no room to move for those entering & leaving. Reservation process felt a little unwelcoming - was told about 15 min hold on table & have to leave when 2 hours are up 3 different times. All was forgiven once we met our terrific waiter & we tried the slaw."

  • "I have dined all over the world, Lee's is without question one of my best dinning experiences ever."

  • "My boyfriend and I absolutely loved the food. The seating was a bit tight but I guess it is a small location trying to fit in many diners. Lovely experience on the whole!"

  • "Fun ambiance and great food and very knowledgeable waiter makes it an enjoyable night Loved that the sound level wE low so we could converse with our guests Thanks so much for a lovely nighy"

  • "...it's temporarily undergoing renovations. The seating area is much, much smaller but the service and the food continue to be amazing. I can't wait to see how the restaurant look after the renos!"

  • "I traveled from London On for my birthday to lees.They recommened you share your dishes,then don't give big enough portions to share.The shrimp was over cooked a lot,we should have sent it back.The cod was cooked to perfection and the braised beef was tender and tasty."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Heard great things about the food and we weren't disappointed. The only down side was that we were a bit rushed. The main courses came before the appetizers were finished. The hurry didn't end there, we had barely ordered our after dinner coffees and the cheque was plopped on the table and finally, the "hostess" came over moments after the cheque and "offered" to get our coats from the coat check (we hadn't even put the credit card away). If that doesn't say "you're done, now get out" I don't know what would."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "We booked at Lee for our anniversary and it was wonderful. The service was impeccable and the food outstanding. You absolutely have to try the coslaw, it is intensely good! Overall it was a wonderful evening with amazing food!"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Went to Lee again. Wasn't as good as the time before. Last time Susur was there physically, this time he wasnt. When the cats away? Would I come back, maybe."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "I went for a date with my husband. As always, the food is just the best. The service was top notch. They are currently renovating the main restaurant so we can't wait to come back to see what it looks like. We ordered the slaw with tuna (an absolute must), the green curry chicken, shrimp, and shared a dessert that was a special for the night. Everything was amazing."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Most of the dishes arrived only warm. Service was poor throughout, was brought two courses at the same time, and both were left on the table for 5 minutes before we were actually given plates to eat the food. Refused to honour gift card claiming it had been bought when the restaurant was Susur, even though it bore the current restaurant logo, and the same address. We've been assured the card was bought at Lee, after Susur had closed, but as it was a gift I have no real proof."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "I left Lee feeling a little dissapointed and empty. We had the slaw, green curry chicken and braised beef. All were good, but nothing was memorable. The slaw is packed with flavour, but its not too far from something I've experienced in a lower end Thai restaurant. As for the braised beef, this dish's preperation can be found in just about any other new age restaurant. The green curry chicken combination was something unique, but I fell short on the heat and or spices. If you've grown up eating asian food, I'd lower your expectations. Else, I'd recommended it to everyone else."
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "This is my first Winterlicious experience but I had been there previously and both times were AMAZING. The food - even for winterlicious definitely didn't disappoint in comparison to a regular dining experience. The food is a must try and for the price - it was well worth it! Would definitely come back whenever I get the chance!"

  • "Came in expecting overrated food but my mind was blown."
    Dined on 2/6/2014
  • "Me and my husband came here to celebrate Valentine's Day. I'd have to say that this is was one of the best Valentines experiences that we had. Our past Valentine's dates, either the service was too slow or they forgot to punch in some orders at another restaurant. Anyways, back to why I was here. At Lee, you are greeted with very friendly hostesses at the door. We came pretty early but they were still able to escort us to our table. Our server recommended the Singapore Slaw but we did not end up trying it because we felt very full. Oh well! Next time! The food itself is so flavorful, and even if it looked like such a small portion, it was very filling. I really liked how the server described the items after placing them on the table."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "It is over rated and over priced in terms of taste and price of food."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "Lee was the choice for my birthday dinner with family for a reason. Not only was the food creative and excellent, our server was also knowledgeable and friendly. At the end of our meal, a plate was brought out with candles for the celebration- the perfect way to end the night."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "This was my dozenth visit to Lee, having done lunch, dinner, private dining, and now a prix fixe winterlicious package. Chef Lee never disappoints, and while the value is questionable the meal was definitely an enjoyable experience. I will definitely go again with friends and family, as it is a Toronto gem."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "The jerk pork ribs were outstanding. One of the best dishes I've ever eaten. We went during winterlicios so limited menu but I have been a few times. The slaw as a starter is one of the signature dishes. A must get. Nice rooms, big windows onto King Street. Would be great for a group or just for 2. Susur Lee is truly a great chef."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "The ingredients and the spice combination was unexpected but was so perfect together. Needless to say, the food was a wonderful experience that I wish everyone can have!"
