Coming from Hawaii where Dim Sum and Chinese food in general are both top notch, we were somewhat disappointed when we dined at House of Lee in San Rafael. Their food is just ok. Not bad, but nothing really special.

I search out the best hot and sour soup. The House of Lee has the best. Their soup is so good that my scalp starts to perspire from the "hot" part of the soup. You will not find a better soup that at the House of Lee. A suggestion--don't wear a hat when having a bowl of hot and soup... More

You don't go here for the service, which can be hot/cold, you go for the delicious food and great prices. They are family friendly and the menu is varied. They have terrific lunch specials and takeout is really easy.

Beware: This is not an authentic Chinese (American) restaurant. My wife and I are new to San Rafael and we miss the many Chinese restaurants of San Francisco's and Oakland's Chinatowns. In Central San Rafael, the city's main business district, there are 3 Chinese restaurants on Fourth Street; this restaurant has the easiest parking with two public lots from 1/2... More

Good place to get your greasy chow mein on after a night out on the town.
