Lee’s is run by Susur Lee, one of Toronto’s most recognizable chefs. Perhaps you’ve seen him on major cook-off shows like Iron Chef America and Top Chef or you’ve been to one of his restaurants in Toronto. If you haven’t, you definitely have to check out Lee’s.
Lee’s menu introduces a variety of fusion style dishes with modern Asian and French influences and has bold,rich flavours and is very pleasing to the eye. The servers are not only friendly and attentive, they’re knowledgeable about the food they’re serving and are able to recommend dishes based on your tastes.

Overall, my experience at Lee’s has been great. The prices are pretty high but the quality of the dishes and variety of ingredients in each dish makes it quite worth it. Out of everything that I had, I wouldn’t get the Wild King Garlic Shrimp again. The shrimp although great, the mac & cheese croquette was a bit of an overkill for my taste personally.
If you’re looking to make a trip out to Lee’s, I highly recommend the Susur’s Signature Singapore Style Slaw and the Cheeseburger Spring Rolls.
