Awesome food, great service, met Susur Lee!

I ate at this restaurant in May, 2015 as part of a group of 24 people. The food was excellent, service excellent, and overall it was a lovely evening. There was something familiar about the chef though.....it was Susur Lee himself! We were delighted when he agreed to let us take some photos with... read more

I've visited this restaurant for a corporate dinner last year with my coworkers. When you look at the menu first time it looks so short, but ask your waiter for clarification and you will be amazed. Their signature salad " Singapure coleslaw" is a combination of crispness, vegetable flavour, salt/ sugar/ and a bit sour. Definitely recommend!

Our family came together in Toronto and had dinner at Lee. Everyone in our party was completely overwhelmed with how amazing everything tasted! Chef Lee has a phenomenally unique and perfect way of fusing Asian and European cuisine. If you're in Toronto, don't miss this experience! The private dining room (our group was 18 adults) was very contemporary and unique... More

Really delicious and interesting fusion menu, highly recommend the Singapore slaw, which we had with seared tuna. Interesting sharing dishes and great wines. The weather was nice so we sat on the little patio. I would definitely return if back in Toronto.

Susur Lee's restaurant, Lee, is everything you would expect from such a great chef. His meals blend southeast Asian cuisine with European styling with a proficiency that is reminiscent of Nobu. The Singapore salad is a must, as are the cheeseburger spring rolls. In fact, everything we ordered was great. I'd strongly recommend going as a large number, so that... More

If there are better restaurants in Toronto then I need to eat there now cause Lee Restaurant was one of the best culinary indulgences of my life! The adage being that you get what you pay for means you should ignore the price and just enjoy one is easily one of the great fusion restaurants. Couple this with wonderful service... More

Went to their patio during recent spate of hot weather. The food was up to the high standards Susur set a long time ago. We all devoured the slaw which is a favorite. It was fun to sit on the front walk and people watch and the food was outstanding. A perfect night.

Atmosphere was nice, service was great. Food is inventive and tasty. All sharing plates. The lamb and fried tofu are great. Cheeseburger spring rolls are worth a try.

We were a group if 4 and ordered 6 different dishes to share and 3 desserts. Each dude was an explosion of fresh and wonderful flavours. We enjoyed the Singapore slaw, the spring roll cheeseburgers, the guacamole, the black cod, the braised beef and the lamb. Fur dessert, the signature special, the peanut butter chocolate dessert and the sorbet. Each... More

Lee is my favorite restaurant in Toronto and never wrote a review, because everyone knows how good it is there and I usually write reviews about the places I travel to. I decided to write a review for people who may want to go to Lee and are NOT from Toronto. There is no doubt you will not be deceived... More
