We ate at Bill Lee's Bamboo Chopsticks based on a recommendation from friends who had eaten there last year. We were part of a large group (25) with reservations. While the restaurant handled the reservation properly and we were seated promptly on our arrival, the food was only average and the service was poor. We only had one server to... More

Bill Lee's is a landmark in Bakersfield. A bit pricey but the food is good. Atmosphere in the bar area is romantic. Service is friendly and good.

Good Chinese food, not fast food. Service was good, food came out hot. Fairly priced for a nice resturant.

The food is amazing, if you know what to order.

We always enjoy coming to Bill Lee's. The food is always fresh and tasty. The presentation is always attractive. We had the ribs, chow mein, sweet and sour chicken, shrimp, and pot stickers. Delicious as always which is why they are a family favorite!

The service is always excellent and the hostesses... More
