The food is very good and the prices are reasonable. The place a bit of an old dump and not updated at all.

So sad to see a restaurant that used to be excellent sink to below average ordinary Chinese food. Vegetables covered in tasteless gooey sauces and overlooked, tough ginger beef, need I say more? Specials aren't special...

I've been to the M-F lunch buffet at Leo Fu's many times in the past. I'm not sure what happened, but this time, the food was just awful, and there wasn't much of it. Formerly one of the best buffets in town for the money, this was just not at all appetizing. The chicken balls were tiny cubes of chicken... More

Hadn't been here for a couple of years. Used to go all the time and the lunch buffet was small but excellent. Went today with a couple of friends. Food was OK, but just average. Heard it changed owners. Still not a bad place to go, but don't expect anything exceptional. Restaurant was always busy at lunch time. Now it... More

We ordered takeout for a party of six recently and were very disappointed with our dinner. Absolutely no flavour in anything; dumplings appeared to be braised, ginger beef was flavourless and dry; salt and pepper squid was probably the best dish of the lot. When we arrived to pick up the order at the appointed time, it was not ready... More

Leo Fu's has been my go-to Chinese food restaurant since about 1997. Always had the best ginger beef and lemon chicken. Never had a bad experience and the staff were always amazing and friendly and welcomed us by name. Something terrible has happened. Did management change? What happened to my Leo?! The food is old, stale, greasy, and crunchy. It... More

the pork dumplings have changed recipe since last visit and just not as tasty I'm afraid. Ginger beef was tough and a bit thick and sweet and sour chicken was very good. Portions as always were huge, four of us ate from this plus a fried rice so great value but just not that good when you factor in a... More

Leo Fu's was a household name in my childhood for great quality chinese food. The last few visits have unfortunately been a bit of a disappointment, seems like quality and energy level in restaurant have diminished. Tried wwor wonton last visit. The broth tasted like slightly salty water and unfortunately diluted any flavour the Wontons may have had. Was there... More
