Returned to Lee on (formerly Mr Lees) for the first time in about 20 years and enjoyed our meal and the restaurant service, although the restaurant could do with a "makeover", particularly downstairs. Overall an enjoyable experience.

Have not been to Lee On in ages and am pleased to say it is still good. Always many Chinese in the restaurant, the tour buses stop here. Always good and authentic food just like you get in China and Hong Kong.
