“Among the best”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

It was called "Lee", but under a different incarnation it's now called "Madeline's by Chef Susur Lee" It has it's off days, but when it's good, it's ridiculously good

“Always Enjoyable”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Susar Lee is one of the best and innovative chefs in North America. His menu always has some surprises that are usually outstanding and creative. More low-key and less upscale than his previous restaurants, Susar's and Lotus, yet still a memorable dining experience. Both Lee's and Lee's Lounge will make for an enjoyable meal.

“5/5 just for the Singapore Slaw”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

I go here just for the Singapore Slaw. It is incredible, and in my opinion is the best salad in Toronto, arguably the best dish in Toronto. The private dining room (accessible through the kitchen) is a fantastic place for small private dinners.

“To die for excellent Asian food!”
Reviewed March 5, 2013 via mobile

The place is loud, the tables too close together, but all that is outweighed by he superbly prepared and served dishes. The servers are knowledgeable and helpful and the food is unquestionably superb! The prices are on the high side but deservedly so... One must pay for such artfully crafted food! Wine list is excellent for he menu. I can't wait to go back!!!
