In need of a refurbishment, damp and drab! The food and the price are amazing, not changed in all the years I've been going. Worth a visit

Great food but not great first impression. The food is tasty and well priced. The ambience and the scruffy reception leave a lot to be desired but the quality of the food should overcome this

25 Years ago this restaurant had been our local when we lived in Bruntsfield and we came here often. So after a long absence (having moved to West Edinburgh) and because we were going to the Kings Theatre I suggested we went there first. First things first it is true as others point out that the outside is definitely in... More

Have been a few times with my partner and also as a group with teenage kids with their friends. The atmosphere is relaxed and decor is simple. The food is fresh and sublime and you can feast put with drinks for £20 per head!

Have been visiting this restaurant for nearly 40 years, when it was Mr Lee's. It certainly isn't the trendiest restaurant in the area, but who cares? The best Chinese food in Edinburgh and surrounds. Friendly efficient service, superb food and a relaxed atmosphere.

I've been here several times for dinners big and small, and have enjoyed it thus far! The food is pretty decent (will never taste exactly like home, but it's close enough). Service can be a little slow at times, especially if there are many people. However if the food is all you go for, it's worth a try!

A close friend of mine has strolled past Lee On on many an occasion. One nippy night in late January (2016), he convinced myself and some guy who hasn't seen Star Wars (we learnt this during our meal) to join him for dinner. Upon entry, the restaurant seemed pretty quiet, but that's my kind of scene. We were served by... More

The Lee On serves good food, We have been going there for a long time now. The décor inside and out needs renovating as it does look drab, but clean, nonetheless. The menu is extensive with a good variety of dishes. the service can be a little slow at times but being able to BYOB makes up for this time... More

We had an enjoyable meal here two years ago but were disappointed on this occasion. The decor inside and out, is in need of attention. The service in an almost empty restaurant, was very good. My king prawns were excellent but the rest of the food was very ordinary. We are not tempted to return for a third visit.
