Food was a wonderful adventure for the tastebuds but the waitress could learn to be a bit more pleasant

The Signature Singaporean-style slaw is amazing, I would have gladly just eaten a whole order myself,but this was large enough to share. The fennel crusted diver scallops were cooked to perfection, melt in your mouth goodness. Not the story with the Tempura maki roll with crab, I found this dish to... read more

Susur Lee never ceases to amazing everyone who tries his cooking. I have been to Lee half a dozen time including for my birthday a couple years back and have never been disappointed. They also take my allergies very seriously. This time around I had the famous Slaw slad with its 19 ingrediance, The Cod which is to die for,... More

We arrived in Toronto and did not have dinner plans but made a last minute reservation at Lee based on the high ratings on TripAdvisor. It was a short ride from our hotel via Uber and when we arrived our table was ready. The host was without personality and bland and after asking our name did not say another word.... More

Went for late night dessert. Had to pass the beautiful people smoke corridor outside the doors. It is trendy and upscale. Simple small desserts started at about $12. Portions were nouveau trend-- decorative and very pricy. A few spoon or fork tasteful and you are done. It is obviously a very busy place and you cannot hear yourself or your... More

Dropped in (without reservations) on late weeknight. Restaurant was packed but the wait wasn't long. This is generally not the average ripped jeans and t-shirt burger joint. Definitely hip/urban upscale. Large restaurant. Dimly lit. Elegant and cool. Music playing was a nice mix to keep energy up but not oppressive. STAFF: This is the upper end of service.

Been dying to eat here - I frequent King West. Love the neighborhood and there is tons of great restaurants. Dined with 2 others which was the perfect number. I love the concept of share plates and everything was truly delicious and so flavorful. The design is also very cool - nice vibe. Service was nothing to write home about... More

I have now visited this restaurant 3 times in the last year, each time with another couple. Each time we had a reservation and were seated quickly, with our coats taken and checked for us. The servers are upbeat and knowledgeable and there is a large variety of food on the menu, to suit all tastes. The sharing plate aspect... More

Walking into this wonderfully warm décor we found a sense of sophistication. The cocktail cart is just too cute !! The food is a wonderful mixture of flavours and not just deposited to your table by some exhausted, overworked food server. But instead the food dishes are presented with full detail and pride! The food is tasty and hot and... More

Date nite with my hubby and we decided to try this place based on all the reviews. Overall, it was great...the food was memorable and really enjoyed the service as well. A few dishes were a bit too saucy but the slaw dish was amazing! I'd dine here again for sure.
