To start with we did not feel well looked after as the restaurant was busy and staff looked harassed. However once we were noticed it was fine. The food was great in particular ribs, chicken with pineapple and honey and beef brisket with avocado and cashews. They also produced excellent plain noodles for one member of our party. Recommended.

Lee garden is probably one of the best I've ate at. The Lemon chicken is so juicy. You get a heap of food, You go with 4 people all choose a main dish. Share, Rice and Noodles as you get lots. They are always busy so give your self time. I have often waited in a line for 30 mins

Lee Garden has been one of the best Chinese Food restaurants in the city for over 20 years. Worth the drive from the 905. Crispy Skin Chicken, deep fried squid, beef on a hot plate and deep fried shrimp are all favourites. Service is fast and the food is great. Come as a large group so you get to try... More

We came to visit having seen reviews on TP. One sometimes wonders if ones expectations will be met and on this occasion they were. We arrived at 5pm to an already busy restaurant and by 5:15pm it was packed and diners were having to queue! That tells you much about its local reputation. Diners appear to be from both the...

Are here last night with my husband and parents. Absolutely love Chinese food and have been to Chinatown in New York, London and San Fran. This was by far the best Chinese we have all had. The service was fantastic and the staff so attentive and helpful in assisting us choose our meals. The atmosphere was fab and we all... More

After a very disappointing meal at King's noodles we tried the nearby Lee Garden. It is yet another disappointment. The food was greasy and salty. Perhaps all the good restaurants in toronto have moved out of downtown area. Are these places for students only, with the more picky customers venturing out to suburbans toronto? We have given up on toronto... More

Every dish was delicious. We ordered the roasted duck, steam bass, smoked chicken, and Buddha feast. The restaurant provides house soup ( free) and red bean for dessert. Great service. Very clean and great service.

Had dinner before a concert at Lee Garden. They have more large round tables than small ones so people are invited to share. It would not be conducive to an intimate evening for a couple, but given the friendliness of your average Torontonian, this can turn out well. We ordered 1 spring roll, 1 appetizer, 2 main dishes, and an... More

Best Chinese food ever!!! One main course would feed two people but ask for a second bowl of rice. Staff were friendly and efficient. Wish this was my local Chinese.
