Food was ok but the service was terrible, the restaurant was not even busy. The diet cokes were flat the mains came at different times, 2 of us were served 15 minutes after the first 2 had been served. Really disappointing to say the least as have been here a few times but tonight unfortunately was a let down.

A return visit after some time away and the food was as good as ever. Enjoyed the ribs starter and the follow on shredded beef, which is always a delicious dish. Chinese visitors come by the bus load to this restaurant so this says something. However, I did note that shark fin soup was on the menu and this I... More

This place has been a family favourite for many years and although I haven't been in a while it didn't disappoint when I was there recently. Good value for money and the food was as tasty as I remember.

lobster with noodles is delicious. There is a special meal, just ask, that also includes Sea Bass and different other dishes that is absolutely wonderful.

It is where the Chinese go to eat for more authentic type Chinese food. Never disappointed when I come here, no frills, but as long as the food is good who cares.

It was a cold damp evening but the food warmed me up! Chinese tea with sweet and sour king prawns, excellant service and if the Chinese eat there it must be good, need I say more.

Service was slow, foods were ok, price wasn't bad, not the best chinese food I had so far. Wish the waitresses will be more friendly n efficient.

I telephoned the Lee-on on 11 February to book for a party of 15 for a retirement dinner for a colleague. She chose this restaurant as we had our Christmas meal there and she loved it. When I phoned I asked if we could come and decorate the table with banners and ballons and yes that was no problem. On... More

Out for our film night again at the Dominion and were in the mood for Chinese Food. The Lee-on has been there for as long as we can remember although we had not visited in about 30 years! We were the only non-Chinese in the place, but did not feel a bit short changed. Food was fresh and tasty, took... More

This evening we ordered a take away from this restaurant and were very disappointed. To begin with the price was quite high, £30 for two main meals, two starters and two side dishes, so we thought the quality would be high too. However, it was one of the worst chinese take-aways I have tasted. The food was very bland and... More
