there are rarely foods that I just can't get out of my head. The slaw which is the signature dish at Lee's is one of them. There is something like 10+ ingredients in the slaw. They prepare it at your table, it's light and delicious. I have dined in at Lee's a few times and also have picked up the... More

My family has been coming to this restaurant since it first opened for everything from birthday dinners, engagement announcements, to good old family catch ups. Susur's flair for fusing asian cuisine with comfort food favorites is sure to please even the most discerning palate - again and again he has wowed us with his creations, steadfastly bolstered by wonderful service...

I really enjoy dining at Lee and have never found the service to be an issue. The food here is great and I think that it is one of the more exciting and innovative restaurants in Toronto. The plating and flavours are sometimes a bit inconsistent... a dish would be a bit spicier or more mild during different visits but... More

I had been to Lee a few years ago and it was honestly one of the best meals of my life. The Singapore Slaw is my favourite. Susur Lee came out last time I was there and wished me happy birthday and inquired after my meal. It was just an overall fantastic dining experience. This time - wow, what a... More

Each time we visit Toronto we like to try a new restaurant, Lee came highly recommended. As long as the food is good and the staff friendly. They failed on both counts. After being shown to our table our server introduced herself, nice girl, then before 2 minutes were up 2 more guys came around, God knows what for but... More

Lee is the essence of suser's growth as a chef. He always ensures attention to detail and the mixture of flavours is impeccable. You can never go wrong in any of his places

I took a trip to Toronto in October and this restaurant came highly recommend. The only thing they forgot to tell me is that reservations are required. My friends and I visited this restaurant with making reservations, although they accommodated us. They also reminded us 3 times the table was reserved for another group and we had to be done...

Excellent seasonal choices of delicious food. We tried the Singaporean slaw - it's as good as everyone says! Also had the Black Cod, lamb, and garlic shrimp. All different, delicious, and do-again. Had several drinks including the sake martini -a definite must try. Only one minor complaint: our server was determined to sell us a bottle of wine. Refused to... More
