I've been coming to Lee Gardens for over 20 years and it never fails to amaze. They prepare incredibly fresh, simple and delicious Chinese food and provide excellent service. It is not the kind of ersatz Chinese food available in so many places but really authentic food. Prepare to wait at busy times. It's worth it.

We finally made it to Chinatown. Quite larger than expected. There were a very interesting mix of people, with quite a number of tourists. By the time we walked up there, I was hungry again, since I just had a salad and some fries at the CN Tower. Found Lee's while wandering around Chinatown AC felt good when we walked... More

Orders were taken very quickly and drinks came quickly also. I ordered the sweet and sour chicken, grandfather's smoked chicken and vegetable chow mien to share between... More

I have been a fan of Lee Garden for many years on my 3-4 visits/year to Toronto. It is always crowded but worth the 10-20 minute wait for a table. The southern China dishes are uniformly very good and the selection of dishes very broad.

Of the few Chinese restaurants I'd been in Toronto, this comes to me as the best. The lady who served us was extraordinarily friendly amd helpful. Our orders came in timely. Portions were good and tastes were...yum, yum! Both the soup and red bean desert were on the house. It was quite a surprise when the bill came! Affordable indeed... More

Lee Garden offers reliable and excellent foods at reasonable prices. This restaurant is crowded at dinner time, especially on the weekend. But the food quality is worth the wait.

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.
