Get the cole slaw...it shouldn't be called cole slaw as it's like no slaw i've ever had...it's the best thing. My best friend was visiting from Vancouver and at the end of her meal ordered one to go so she could take it home the next day for her hubby in Van! Yes, it's that good!

Visited the restaurant for winterlicious and I was truly impressed. The food was delicous and I would return again for sure. Had the yummy beef tacos followed by the chicken main. I've never been to a restaurant owned by a TV chef celebrity and I was truly impressed by the quality of the food and delivery. If I had one... More

Unique dishes make this the best resto I have been to in ages. Everything was great but especially loved the lettuce wrap and the asian slaw!

Our winterlicious dinner last night was perfect! A sensational mix of flavours and friendly, attentive service. The delicious shrimp and cod cake app started off our culinary adventure followed by a delicious chicken main with smoked cheddar / black forest ham & taro fritter / cream of spinach / smoked tomato sauce and ended with a tasty dessert trio!

We just enjoyed an absolutely sensational dinner at Lee. Their Winterlicious menu is one of the best bargains going. We can hardly wait to go back and try more of their regular menu. The food was spectacularly good and not like anything you'll have at another restaurant; it was inventive and unusual. The service was fast and excellent. By all... More

We decided to try Lee on a whim, and are so glad we did - it was incredible! Our pre-dinner drinks were great, and while we are generally wary of dishes like the Singaporean slow (only because you worry it won't live up to the hype), we tried it, and it was one of those things you just keep thinking...

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

Every time I eat at Lee restaurant I am impressed by the consistent quality of the food. The ambiance is elegant casual. Susar Lee's mark is evident throughout. The staff is very knowledgeable about the food, the ingredients and the preparation.. The staff appears enthusiastic. The drinks are wonderful and complement the food well. An overall enjoyable eating and drinking... More
