Great food, generous portions, good service. A busy restaurant but we did not feel crowded and it was not noisy. Many of the other Chinese restaurants in this area had few customers. We can recommend the shrimp wonton soup, the chicken in chilli Szechuan, sautéed beef with Chinese broccoli, and assorted Chinese vegetables chow mein.

Lee Garden was a random pick for us. We were walking through Chinatown, looking for a place to eat. We liked the menu at Lee Garden and gave it a chance. I hate to stereotype, but I've always heard that if most of the patrons of an asian restaurant are asian, the food will be good. Certainly the case at... More

You can't go wrong with the food here. Everything I have tried so far I have been very happy with. From Tuesday to Friday they have this special $12 dinner menu that includes your Wonton or hot and sour soup, 1 of 6 different entre's, white rice and dessert. Incredible value and really good food.

The food selection was excellent with a great deal of variety. The dishes we ordered were very good and the portions were extremely generous. The service was very good as well. It appears to be popular as we got there early and there was a line when we left. There were many of the usual dishes as well as ones... More

This restaurant was recommended by a local. We were a family of four, 10 & 8. Restaurant was busy with both new comers and ones who have been there before. Dishes were large. Tea severed when we sat.

I had Shrimp Wonton Soup, Yellow Curry Chicken, and fried banana. The soup was good, the Curry was fantastic and the... More

Very crowded, line at the door, noisy, busy and just fabulous! The food is excellent and just watching a table being cleared and re-set for the next guest is entertainment in itself! Lots of people wait for a table, no bar to sit at, so just a line at the door. Does serve wine and beer. Wouldn't have missed this... More

Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces that shoulder in against each other display shining roast ducks and menus studded with dumplings and noodle bowls. The air is pervaded with music. different languages, and the smell of fried food and mouth-watering desserts. Chinatown's restaurants represent a broad range of fare, from traditional Szechuan and Shanghai foods, to other Asian delicacies, including some of the top Japanese, Vietnamese, and Korean spots in the city. Whether you're in the mood for a sit-down tea house or a bubble tea to go, Chinatown is the spot to enjoy an exciting walk and the promise of leaving satisfied.
