This has been a favorite of mine for a while. Last visit was more of a disappointment from the last. The signature slaw was way too sweet and wet, big letdown as this is one of the main reasons we come. The fried tofu was excellent as usual but the lentils were very average, goat cheese tart was good etc.... More

I live in the area and frequent this place. The food is always delicious. Slaw, black cod and braised beef are my favorites! Highly recommended.

Was a guest of colleagues and my only regret is that I don't live in Toronto. This would be at the top of the list for best spots for food, ambience, and terrific service. The wait staff demonstrated knowledge of food and wines and were prompt without being obnoxious. Wish I could order delivery to the States!

I don't even know where to begin. I have eaten at quite a few places over several continents and this is the most memorable. I wish I was living in Toronto again because this place would be my guilty pleasure. Every dish was better than the last, the decor and ambiance were amazing and service (thank you Randy) was impeccable.... More

Quite simply one of the best meals I have had. I flew in from NYC and surprisingly without a reservation we were quickly seated but the place was soon full. The Slaw is a must, followed by the blackened cod, crab cakes, lamb chops, and green chicken curry. All so good that we went back on Saturday night and without... More

I recently had a business dinner at Lee and it was a bit of a letdown. The food was quite good - but not excellent. Their signature Singaporean-style Slaw should be ordered - it was very good. All the dishes we tried were good but a few were just average. I found a few of the items to be a... More

Our experience with Lee began on a positive note before we even entered the restaurant - with one of our dining guests running behind and a most-polite hostess kindly holding our table despite our delay. Regardless of apologies, she continued to assure us that no harm was done and that she was happy to keep our table waiting until we... More

I stayed in the back room (which you have to enter THROUGH the kitchen, which was really fun!) with a group of 7 colleagues on a weekday night. The place is very trendy, with lounge music blasting perhaps a bit too loudly throughout. We took the 10-course special sampling menu, which was very tasty. Our favorite was perhaps the first...

We had dinner during Summerlicious. Our waiter was very friendly and informative and explained the sharing style menu to us. I was pleasantly surprised to see several vegetarian options on the menu as well. The slaw had an abundance of flavours, and the watermelon/feta cheese combination was great as was the risotto. All dishes were visually interesting and flavourful. Would... More

We decided to try this restaurant because I heard it was very good and it was part of Summerlicious... not knowing anything more. Little did I know that I would be dining in the Master Chef's restaurant! The food is unlike any other I've ever had and for the first time in Toronto, it was packed with the most amazing... More
